Where To Find Stranger In Lagos

Happy new month, everyone! I hope y’all are doing great? Wishing you a blessed month ahead. So, I recently put up Stranger In Lagos on Amazon, and since then people have been asking when it’ll get on Okadabooks. Others have asked for PDF copies. This post is to give you full publishing details of the book. I published Stranger In Lagos on Amazon, because I needed it there to allow me apply for a writing fellowship grant. One of the criteria requires that you either have a paperback or a book recently published on Amazon. Hence, my reason for publishing it there. Stranger In Lagos would be out in November this year or early December. Maybe even October. It all depends on the publishing house and their process. The other day I shared my story and how I fell out with CMS Bookshops. One of the reasons I shared that…

The Story I Didn’t Really Want To Share

If you recall, late last year, I announced that a certain publishing house (let’s call them CMS Bookshops) reached me and we got into discussions on how to bring Stranger In…

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…
