Werner Weyer's ETERNITY: Media Update; 20 February 2014

Werner Weyer's Eternity hits the shelves

Published: 20 February 2014

A crazy desert prophet, a missing woman and a bloody dress, Ronny Searching got more than he bargained for when he took the road to Eternity.

“This was the Oasis Truck stop, a bar and grill that came to be more than a landmark or a place with the best ribs and shooters. It was here that a man in faded jeans sold wisdom for whisky. This stretch of desert highway came from somewhere and was going nowhere. Once on this road it was easy to forget where you were from, and the future was as far as the next turn-off. The beautiful barren landscape swallowed you whole. This was isolation heaven, a place conveniently forgotten except for those whose lives depended on it.” So the novel begins.

Eternity started out originally as a short story Werner Weyer wrote in his teens, and years later, when he found it between some papers he was going through he found himself inspired to turn it into a book. The novel explores identity and forgotten dreams in a made-up place with a landscape readers will find familiar, if only for a fleeting instant.

Weyer says, “For me, writing comes from the desire to share all of my emotions and experiences. Beyond creating a space of enjoyment and familiarity for readers, it is also a self-fulfilling act – the experience of ultimate freedom of expression.”

Weyer was born in the bushveld town of Groblersdal in the Limpopo Province in South Africa. He has been writing for many years, in between hitchhiking his way to the big city and finding a roof over his head wherever the road took him. He has been awarded various accolades for his writing and his passion for the craft clearly shines through in his first novel. He currently resides in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Eternity is available at Exclusive Books, on, and through
