Die Fotoalbum

Skrywer: Annekie Heyns

 

Jennepher is somtyds net ‘n toeskouer in haar eie familie en vriendekring. Agter die lens van haar kamera kan sy altyd so effe van die aksie verwyderd wees. En aksie is daar genoeg van. Die drama tussen Tant M en Dalene gaan nie gou end kry nie, Gerrie se flambojante persoonlikheid is ‘n handvol en Ouma se groot verjaarsdag partytjie wat nader kruip, beloof om een vir die boeke te wees.
Die Fotoalbum is die verhaal van ‘n groot familie op ‘n klein dorpie. Elke huis het sy kruis, maar dié een, wil dit voorkom, het sommer ‘n hele paar. Almal kom jaarliks vir ‘n naweek lank saam en die vonke gaan spat. Jennepher staan hierdie jaar gelukkig so bietjie uit die water uit. Of dit is wat sy gedink het. ‘n Familielid waarvan almal al amper vergeet het, het ander idees in gedagte.

Colour your world

Artist: Maritza van Zyl

(Size A4 (+2cm tear-off))

(Pages are one side only and can be removed to frame)

 

All the drawings are done freehand and in a Naïve style.
I have been working in this style for about 20 years now and can honestly say that I have never experienced more freedom in my work.
Naïve art gives you the opportunity to work freely with colour, lines and perspective.
For me it also provides the “excuse” to paint and create in a childlike manner.
In other words: TOTAL FREEDOM!
Plus the therapeutic and relaxing elements it provide are PRICELESS!
In this book you will find flowers, angels, birds and figures that you can colour to your heart’s delight.

A life lived… Cancer survived

Author: Tebogo Malema

 

“Hardship, trial and pain are the best gauge of what one actually has inside oneself. Those are the things that beg for more than just muscle to fight off its challenges. The things, that digs deep inside of you for a solution. A solution that will be seen by all; but who can’t for a second feel an inch of the pain that you experience. Well, I have felt it. I have been down and out. Pushed to the edge, and in agony to my very core. Lost people, support, structure, money, health, strength and almost lost my mind, but nothing could have prepared me to be told by the doctor that I have less than 6 months to live!”

Tebogo Malema tells her story of survival against all odds five years after the doctors said she will die. This is a true story of survival and education about the rare cancer she has, and prejudice overcome by faith.

Matchbox full of Diamonds

Author: Bernice De Lucchi

 

“This collection of short stories has a marvellous South African flavour. De Lucchi spins an entertaining yard, often surprising her reader with deliciously wicked endings.
The 27 stories bite-sized and make for quick, indulgent bursts of reading. From scorned women and mistreated children, to lonely spinsters and fed-up teens, De Lucchi’s stories are populated by interesting characters, most of whom get what’s coming to them, and few foe whom you can only hope the best.
A common thread which appears throughout is vengeance, with murder and abuse being recurring themes. Her women are mostly strong-willed at times it’s commendable and others exasperating.” – Cape Times, 22 May 2015

The best of South African Bonsai and a little history

Author: Willem Pretorius

(Size A4)

 

“The story of bonsai in South Africa is a fascinating one with colourful characters.

Not many bonsai countries can boast of trapeze artists, fighter pilots, a grower who established a bonsai-en on his bathroom roof and even a blind practitioner in their midst.

It is a rich heritage albeit poorly recorded and with lots of gaps that we can hopefully fill as the years pass. It is imperative that we do it as some of the characters are dying and without a record their tradition will mainly be transferred orally to next generations..”

Lees Drie Treë na die Hemel en ontdek hoe God ‘n ongelukkige sameloop van omstandighede in ‘n boodskap verander, nie net vandag nie, maar elke dag.
“Die nagmerrie het begin: seksuele mishandeling, ‘n alkolistiese pa en ‘n disfunksionele familie. Hierdie boek is ‘n reis van pyn, wanhoop en verslawings wat tot die sirrose van die lewer lei en ‘n tydperk van slegs ses maande oor het om te leef. Een lawwe partytjie na die volgende wat altyd eindig tot die braking liters bloed, wat skynbaar genoeg is om in te verdrink, waarna Janine in die hospitaal in die intensiewe sorgeenheid opgeneem is. Daar was geen hoop om oorlewing indien sy in die diep, donker put val nie. In hierdie plek, ‘n verskriklike grot van vrees en pyn, het sy tot die besef gekom dat die dood nie ‘n verlossing is nie, maar eerder die oorsprong tot die ewige hel; ‘n ewige gevangenis, een waaruit wat jy kan nooit ontsnap nie en vir ewig vasgevang is.”
Drie treë na die hemel is Janine Haun se eerste boek, ‘n biografie van haar stryd om die trauma en pyn van seksueel mishandeling vanaf ‘n jong ouderdom te oorwin. Na haar pynlike reis het sy uiteindelik ‘n plek van vrede en beslissing gevind en besef dat wonderwerke nog gebeur.
Janine is ‘n gekwalifiseerde onderwyseres en sielkundige berader. Sy het in beide Engeland en Duitsland klas gegee, maar dit prys gegee om aan haar loopbaan en eerste liefde, berading, te werk. Sy help die gebrokes deur middel van kragtige geskrifte soos dié wat haar lewe gered het. Sy woon tans in haar geboorteland, Suid-Afrika, saam met haar man Elmar Haun. Sy het ‘n  seun wat in Duitsland groot geword het en steeds daar woon. Haar ma en mede-skrywer, May Saunders, is op 19 Julie 2015 oorlede.
Janine vervul haar visie van die verkondiging van die Evangelie deur haar ongelooflike getuienis by elke moontlike geleentheid te verkondig.

Oktoberkind

Skrywer: Magdalie Grobler

 

Ek onthou ’n spesiale sonsondergang, een waar die son aan die horison raak – die water ontmoet – soos ’n verliefde se eerste aanraking. Ek onthou die volmaakte afsluiting van daardie dag.

Dit is digkuns!

Dit is die skep van blywende beelde deur woorde en regdeur die proses moet jy jouself in die woorde verloor en nog steeds antwoorde kry; lei jy die leser deur die kompleksiteit van jou siel en wees ’n baken van hoop vir die wat die antwoord tot hul ware wese soek.

Elke gedig is soos ’n hergeboorte en deur elke hergeboorte kry jy meer kennis van jou sterkpunte en swakhede. Sodra perfeksie bereik is, begin die proses van vooraf; ’n voortsetting van die lewe deur die woorde en die siel van ’n digter.

Digkuns is nie ’n vaardigheid wat jy aanleer deur lees of liefde vir die kuns nie. Dit is nie iets wat iemand vir ander kan leer wat nie die kuns geniet nie. Dit is iets diep en betekenisvol en kan net met die hart gevoel word. Om digkuns te geniet is soos om ’n geleerde sielkundige te wees wat tussen die lyne kan lees om die ware emosies agter die fasade van woorde te herken…

Three Steps To Heaven

Author: Janine Haun

 

Read how Janine took “Three steps to heaven” to discover that God can turn a mess into a message, today and every day.
“Nightmarish beginnings; sexual abuse, an alcoholic father and a dysfunctional family. A journey of pain, despair and addictions which leads up to cirrhosis of the liver with only six months left to live ensues. One more crazy party leads vomiting litres of blood, seemingly enough to drown in, and Janine is taken up in the intensive care unit. There is no hope of survival left as she falls down into a deep, dark pit of terror. Entering this place, a terrible cave of fear, pain and terror, she comes to realise that death is not a release, but rather a descent to eternal hell. An everlasting prison with dark, slimy walls alive with black creatures, spiders and petrifying evil. One from which you can never escape; forever chained and trapped there.”
This is Janine Haun’s first book, a biography of her struggle to overcome the trauma and pain of being sexually abused at a very young age. After her painful journey, she finally finds a place of peace and resolution and realises that miracles do happen.
Janine is a licenced teacher and psychological counsellor. She has taught in both England and Germany, but is now building a career pursuing her first love; counselling the broken-hearted with the help of powerful scriptures like the ones which saved her life.

Wraak

Skrywer: Chris F. Smith

 

‘n Vrou wat as eiendom besit word, gemartel word, wat aan siek seksspeletjies onderwerp word, waarvan eenvoudig verwag word om te doen soos die Meester beveel.

Gaan Belinda haar oorgee aan haar lot, of gaan sy die bordjies verhang?

“Die verhaal is slegs vir volwassenes en stel die wreedheid en sadisme ondergrondse seks- en moordnetwerke bekend, geweef in die onwerklike bewussyn van ‘n sielsieke. Smith het gesorg dat die verhaal op goed nagevorsde feite gebaseer is (hoewel dit as fiksie geklassifiseer is.)
Tans is daar ‘n romantisering van “bondage” en allerhande afwykende sekspraktyke. Smith draai die lig op die skrikwekkende in die “bedryf”. Mense word gevange geneem, as slawe aangehou en die netwerke loop van die superrykes tot die baie mense wat hulle ondersteun.
Die verhaal begin by Nick, ‘n skrywer, wat ‘n houthuis op ‘n afgeleë plaas huur om sy boek klaar te skryf. Daar kruis sy pad met die Henry wat mense met ‘n byl doodkap op bevel van stemme uit die woud. Nick ontsnap, maar hy droom van Belinda, sy eerste liefde. Belinda word ontvoer en verkoop as ‘n seksslaaf. Sy verduur maande se pyn en marteling voordat sy ontsnap. Toe almal se paaie weer kruis kom die waarheid na vore tydens haar wraaktog…” – Bloemnuus
