Jackie Phamotse Celebrates A Cool Milestone. She continues to make waves in the publishing field. Although some people regard her as controversial, Jackie Phamotse‘s books always sell like fat cakes. In July 2020, her book, Bare III Ego became best seller at Exclusive Books, just three weeks after it dropped. It goes without saying that her content is forever on high demand.
In October 2020, the international award winning author, bagged the adult-fiction award at the SA Book Awards. This was for her book, Bare: The Cradle of the Hockey Club, which got the country talking in 2019. Phamotse thus became the first black female self-published author to win the award.
The award is now up in stores, and Phamotse is over the moo. She shared a video of the award in a book store and gushed over this milestone.
“Our award is up in stores!!!!!,” Phamotse said in excitement.
Phamotse is also famous for her strong stand when it comes to various issues affecting women and kids, such as mental health, rape, and human trafficking. Although some people find her controversial, others think she is a voice for the voiceless. Her outspokenness has gotten her in trouble with the likes of Basetsana and her husband Romeo Kumalo.
She recently earned herself a Netflix deal for her 2017 debut novel, Bare: The Blesser’s Games. The novel, which was awarded the African Icon Literary Award in Lagos, Nigeria in 2018, throws a light on the dark underworld of blessers and slay queens.
A few days ago, Phamotse announced that her new Adult book series LIWA will be available on the 1st of July. The book series, which touches on issues like overcoming anxiety and depression, will inspire great educational conversations between parents and kids. Talk about a high flyer!
