Volunteer Editors Needed For A Nasio Novel
April 2020

Nancy has been working with experienced author and freelance writer Sylvia Vetta on a novel “Not so black & white”, inspired by the work of the Nasio Trust and our involvement with disadvantaged children in the UK and Western Kenya. The novel, set in London and Kenya, raises some serious issues as well as being a cracking read, which we believe our supporters will love.

We hope to publish it as an e-book priced £2.99 in June with ALL proceeds from direct sales through Nasio going to the charity. It will also be on Amazon and other e-platforms and all proceeds, after Amazon takes its percentage, will go to Nasio.

Nancy and Sylvia are paying the costs of publishing the book and need your help to professionally copy edit. We are looking for experienced volunteers happy to help with the editing so that by saving on the cost of a professional editor more funds will go to Nasio.

Katie Isbester of Claret Press did a free editorial edit so it is just copy editing i.e. looking for typos, awkward sentences, missed punctuation and repetitions etc that is needed. It is a short novel.

Are there any supporters with experience of editing who could volunteer to edit 30 pages each?

Because traditional fundraising has been seriously affected by Covid-19 we also hope that you will help us promote the book to generate sales. We need it to sell to help raise much-needed funds to support Nasio children and their families during this pandemic.

Sylvia also wrote the Green Power the Spirulina Cookbook for Nasio through KOA Raising funds for the Spirulina Project in Kenya supporting malnourished children and surplus sold to generate income for the Nasio Trust.

Publishing in Africa at the London Book Fair By Katie Isbester

In further support of the Nasio Trust’s Library appeal, Katie Isbester talks about her recent trip to the London Book Fair and a fortuitous discovery!

I didn’t mean to go to the talk. There were some 30,000 people at the London Book Fair and I was supposed to meet at least a few of them. Instead I found myself going to a talk on publishing in Africa because of Nasio Trust. I knew it was trying to build a library, the first of its kind in Western Kenya, and I was rather curious.
