AFTER publishing Inqaba: Grief and Hope, Thulani Gumede (33) received an “overwhelming” response and has been invited to talk about it at various media platforms.

The author was surprised when he was approached by a company that wants to make a movie based on his first book.

“I have realised that only the sky is the limit. The response has been superb, but I remain grounded.

“Pride can destroy a person’s success overnight. I would like to thank my mentor who has helped me stay grounded.

“The book changed a lot of people’s lives and it’s such a pleasure to know that people have read my book and it has helped them,” he said.

The launch of his second book, the 130-page Lovers & Mirrors, will take place at the Bessie Head Library. Entry is free.

The book will be on the shelves from March 25 in KZN. The book speaks about relationships before and during marriage. It also breaks down the elements of a relationship and what makes it not succeed.

“I chose to write the book due to my experience in marriage and what some of my friends have shared about their relationships.

“The book, a true reflection of how people conduct themselves in relationships, explains the real meaning behind ‘happily ever after’.”

He said the book is relevant to all age groups and costs R150.

Gumede, who is halfway through his third book, is also completing his masters in commerce degree at UKZN.
