24. #womenwriters #readwomen Fiona Snyckers recommends…

‘A book I would recommend is Invisible Others by Karina M. Szczurek. It is a fascinating examination of the tendency of the male gaze to inscribe its own narrative onto the female object of desire.’


FionaFiona’s new book is called Now Following You. It will be released by Modjaji Books in September:

“Jamie Burchell is a digital native – social media comes as naturally to her as breathing. She Instagrams, tweets and Facebooks her every move.
Then a stalker starts using social media to track her movements. As his behaviour escalates, so does her fear. But her blog has never been more popular. The fans can’t get enough of reading about her stalker. She is closer than ever to achieving her dream of becoming a writer. Should she take herself offline out of fear for her own safety or should she refuse to be intimated?

Soon the stalker starts threatening the people she cares about. But now it’s too late for Jamie to go offline, because he is already following her in real life.”
