It feels like ages ago but it was back in February, 2020 that I reported here that we submitted the entire manuscript of the book to the publishers. Since then Marina, Manuel and myself have had to do quite some behind-the-scenes work as co-editors. It has been a great collaborative team work process. The copyeditors sent us the manuscripts with
red marks corrections and plenty of queries we had to resolve with a short turnaround time. This was followed by us receiving the first proofs to check. These came with their own tiny corrections and queries that needed resolving as quickly as possible. The first proofs are now back with the publishers and we are almost set to go with the print run. The publication is scheduled for 30 November and we are pleased to already make celebratory noise and give you a sneak peak of what’s coming up soon…
It is nice to be able to see the proofs of the massive tome of the Routledge Handbook of Tourism in Africa. We are thankful to all our contributors for their hardwork, dedication and patience throughout this process. Enjoy the sneak peek of the 30 chapters and 10 InFocus sections from academics and industry practitioners. You can already pre-order here
We will organise a proper virtual book launch and book tour once it’s published so keep an eye out for details.
