Dear 2drawists,
Please excuse this unabashed plugulation, but this is the easiest way to inform you that my book – Six Fang Marks and a Tetanus Shot – is finally available to readers outside South Africa.
You can order it here: (Search for “Six Fang Marks”).
You can read an excerpt here:
And you can visit my blog here:
I wish you pleasant reading and hope you’ll be tempted to drop me a line on my blog.
Best wishes,
Richard de Nooy (the artist formerly known as R.)

I'm afraid a panel discussion on "Fame!" with fellow authors Kopano Matlwa and Zachariah Rapola.
UPDATE: Just got an excellent review in an SA newspaper: "ONE of the skills of a really good storyteller is the ability to juxtapose mirth with tragedy.
"The feel of Fangs, from its crazy cover to the very amusing back-page blurb, sets the tone for a light-hearted read.
From the first page there are smiles, and there was even a passage that had me giggling loudly. You love the quirky people in the book, recognise some of the weird situations, feel for them in their daily - but very everyday - struggles and disappointments. These could be people you know.
Then De Nooy drops a big whammy, and all the mirth is gone. Instead, you have a heart-breaking situation that you really want to change back to the happy times - sort of like life, sometimes.
It is a story about a writer who is piecing together the lives of two brothers who had grown up in South Africa.
It is funny and sad and beautiful, and will stay with you long after you have finished."
