Good evening guys,
It’s been a while here. I do hope everyone is doing okay.
So, I want to talk about Biyankavitch having a password. I did not want to have this conversation, because it makes me sound like I am a broken record. And God knows I hate repeating myself. But I’ve been having many requests for the password and I feel you all deserve an explanation at this rate.
First, if you bought In The Name of Papa early last year to gain access to membership, your subscription has expired. It is only for one year, and at this moment, there is no active membership, because I have been too busy to keep that going. So unless, you bought the book much later and I granted you access, your membership has expired already.
Last week’s Biyankavitch, which was episode 19, was strictly reserved for people who comment actively on the series. Here’s the truth, Biyankavitch is the most disrespected series I have ever shared here. Disrespected in the sense that people read it, dust their feet and walk away. They don’t comment and don’t share. It’s like that chick you fuck in private that you don’t want to have anything to do with in public.
And this is quite annoying, because here’s another truth, Biyankavitch is the most time-consuming, tasking thing I have ever written here. I kid you not. This is why I don’t share it so often. Every single episode takes research, effort and a good amount of fuel in my gen to stay up all night. And guess what. I wanted to make it free. Even when I toyed with the idea of selling it, I thought to myself that I already have Stranger In Lagos that I want to have for sales, so, why sell this one?
Now, if you know me, you’ll know that I enjoy literature. I love reading stuff and discussing about what I’ve read. And this is much more fun when it’s my stories. This is why I always ask for feedback. If not, I can easily just sell the book and get the money. But it’s not about the money for me. Trust me, my books don’t feed me. It’s the writing experience that grants me jobs that has kept me going. If it were these books alone, I for don close shop since.
I appreciate those who are always here to share their thoughts about the series. And this is not even about the praise they give me. I want to know what they feel about the characters and the storyline, because sometimes, we writers feel like we are doing nonsense, that what we do ain’t good enough. It takes a mountain of guts to bare it out and share it here, but when you see over five hundred views, up to thirty minutes stay on site on the average, and just two comments, you question your efforts. This is why I decided that for those who stand by me, I will stand by them. We don pass the level wey we go dey beg people to comment.
And this brings me to my next point, this post is not to get you commenting. Some of you have said ‘Sally, I will start commenting from now on.’ I hear you, but that’s not my aim. I’m numb to all that at this point. I have planned to jejely finish the story, put it in a book and sell it. That way, I don’t lose out.
So, please, no vex if the password no reach you. I’m not trying to make enemies, but to appreciate those who appreciate what I do here. And to those of you who comment on other series, I am thankful. Denying you access is not denying you access to all my works or thinking of you as less. If you buy my books, I am also grateful. I love you for that. But for this series, I am tired of feeling like crap and having no joy each time I share it. In fact, my husband has told me not to, because he hates the way I feel every time I log into my backend and upload it. He said, when I posted episode 19 (and I didn’t know he was watching me), that he’s never seen me so sad to share a post on my site.
Episode 20 would be the last here, and again, it is for those who comment. Please, don’t come and ask for the password if you are not active on the series. Just wait until it’s published and you can buy if you love it so much. Don’t worry, if action and blood and gore are not your thing, I already promised you something nice on the 1st of June till God-knows-when. Stranger In Lagos would soon be out too.
Sweet ladies and distinguished gentlemen, enjoy me while I share stuff here o. Time will come when this site and all my social media handles would be for sales of what I have written and would write. So, just have fun and enjoy your time with my stories.
For those asking for Dugo, it’s no longer available for free. It’s under revision and would be up on Okadabooks for sale.
Where To Find Breasts starts in June. If you know where to find them, please hola at me. Follow me on Instagram @moskedapages to catch up on my #moskedacharacters series.
