“If I had published my novels in Botswana, I would have been forced to approach either conventional publishing houses, which are mostly educational publishers or go the self-publishing route, which is not yet fully developed in the country.  I have seen some of self-published works in Botswana and I would say most of them are not that impressive.  A self-publishing wing of Amazon has greatly helped me come up with good quality books,” he said.
