My name is Liesl, and I was the owner of the English Bookshop. During the 10 years that I had the shop, I was taught some valuable lessons and gained great experience.

At the Bookstore I had many tasks, and responsibilities, but the most important, and the one that I enjoyed the most, was selling books. I learned what books sell and why they sell.

I saw how many people were writing books that didn’t meet the readers' expectations. They had been slaving away, only to discover that their book would never be sold.

I witnessed much extraordinary writing and the writers went completely unnoticed. The book world is challenging, as all industries are, and you need to address this challenge with a plan of action.
