I’m not exactly leaving on a jet plane. Lol.
But I’ll be gone for a while. A long time.
In one of my recent posts, I explained that I no longer have the time I used to have as before. I get so busy these days that I can’t remember when last I slept through the night. There was a time that I could do that and yet write without having to take out special time to do so. Now, I don’t have that luxury anymore.
I’ll be going away for at least, six months, starting from now. What this means is that there will be no active series here from me, and once Dugo ends on Instagram, there won’t be any. However, when I return, you’ll get the uncompleted ones in books.
So, about Stranger In Lagos, the news is that big publishing came for it. I still can’t give the details because we’re going back and forth on the contract. This is my first real encounter with traditional publishing. If for nothing else, I want the experience so that I can share what I’ve learned with other writers and help guide them through, being that traditional publishing is not a walk in the park, especially when you’re trying to cut a deal with a publishing house that has been in the business for a long time.
If it works out, we’ll pop champagne. If it doesn’t, we’ll still pop champagne.
Biyankavitch comes in a book, for those who keep asking. Lucky for non-members, you get to catch up on the episodes that have been exclusive to members. Lucky for members, you get a discount when the book comes out.
I’ll try to keep this place busy with new writers that have great work. Please, I beg of you, comment and encourage them. I keep saying this and I won’t stop because it’s the truth. Your feedback boosts the writer’s ink. You have no idea how much. There are times that I get tired of writing but I see comments and I’m fueled to write again because I see how much my work affects people out there. So please, encourage them. A few words in response to a work of a thousand words is only fair. Biko, try.
You can always catch me on social media. Facebook, especially. I may not be as active, but I’ll be there. You can also email me firstname.lastname@example.org to buy PDF copies of any of my books or if you want me to tutor you on how to be a kickass storyteller.
Buy my books if you haven’t. They are:
No Heart Feelings, It’s Another Saturday, In The Name of Papa, Fish Brain Clan, Fish Brain Games, Fish Bran Vows, Fish Brain Madhouse, The Fourth Finger, To Tame A Virgin, His Little Black Book and Novocaine Knights
They are all affordable. Click on any title to get your copy. No Heart Feelings will be featured here every day. As will all the other series, consecutively. This is for people who haven’t read any of my books. You’re going to have a lot of fun doing so.
God bless you guys for constantly being here. Totally appreciated.
I love you!
