A Motswana author based in Australia, Nsununguli Mbo, who is on vacation in the country has said that publishing his work overseas has afforded him the chance to publish good quality books.

Speaking to Showbiz, Mbo who is also a medical doctor, said that he believes that had he published in Botswana, the end product would possibly have been of a lesser quality.

“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.
