Cape Town, South Africa (PressExposure) January 29, 2009 -- So Close: Infertile and Addicted to Hope, Tertia Albertyn's Blooker-nominated journal about her battle with infertility will soon be available to international readers on Amazon, Powell's Books, and practically every e-retailer on the planet. So Close, a heart-breaking, yet deliciously funny account of Tertia's journey from infertility to motherhood, was first published by Oshun in 2006, and has received rave reviews in the South African media. Says Sam Wilson of women24.com: "Tertia is warm and irreverent, foul-mouthed and appropriately self-obsessed, full of insecurity and, most importantly for our purposes, the kind of person who can draw you into her tale."
With glowing descriptions from the media -- "The writing is deeply moving, often infused with wacky and off-centre humour. Her 'can do' attitude is inspiring ... Albertyn is gutsy and not afraid to bare her soul ... This book is a terrific read." (Cape Times) -- and fans of her blog http://www.tertia.org "I finished Tertia's book in less than 24 hours. It was so compelling, I had to force myself to go to sleep and not just continue reading through the night ... Just like her blog, Tertia's book addresses the issue [of infertility] with incredible candidness." (Janine Dunlop, tertia.org contributor), it's no surprise that sales for So Close are still going strong, three years after publication.
And now, you too can purchase a copy, from any e-retailer worldwide or any bookstore in the US and UK.
Tertia's book is being distributed internationally through Electric Book Works' Mousehand service. Mousehand is a self-publishing service that enables authors to widen the distribution networks of their books, and is fast becoming the popular choice for authors who insist that their books be of flaunt-able quality while remaining affordable to their readers.
