‘After a six month hiatus following the end of Escalator, I started from the beginning again and completed my first finished draft in August 2014. I then submitted it to a couple of agents and was signed immediately to one of them’ – K.J. Packer, Escalator 2011
‘Afrika Reich did really well in hardback, selling more than 10,000 copies which makes me the 11th best selling debut of 2011. It also reached number three in Spain’s charts […] All in all, not bad for a book which the majority of publishers in this country said had no commercial appeal!’ – Guy Saville, Escalator 2007
