Echoes of Betrayal now available on Amazon

You can finally purchase my book in both ebook (Kindle) and Paperback (hardcopy/Print) versions on Amazon HERE.

Read more about the book below.

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Echoes of betrayal is a work of fiction in the drama genre. With an African setting, the novel tackles themes of betrayal, divorce, family, love, nature vs nurture, gender inequality, fertility, parenting, culture, religion, and many other issues faced by couples whose relationships have been plagued by betrayal.

Echoes is both an entertainment and inspirational novel. Despite being fictional, the exposition of the novel is neither driven by a complex plot with numerous twists and turns, nor does it promise a fantastical ending or experience. The book is written in a true-to-life form, with characters telling their stories from their points of view; what they saw, what their thoughts were in those moments, why they reacted the way they did, and why they made the decisions they made.

Most importantly, the book endeavours to delve into the hearts and minds of people that have been betrayed or have betrayed their loved ones. It captures both visible and invisible side effects of betrayal on families. It puts to paper the most intimate of thoughts, feelings, doubts, as well as hope for such couples whilst detailing their journey to restoration and recovery. It is my hope that people can relate to the book at a very personal and intimate level.

Through deliberate dramatization of true-to-life events, Echoes of Betrayal will address questions such as; Why do I do the things I do? Why did this happen to me? What do I need to do to earn his/her forgiveness? Did I do something to deserve this? Should I stay, or should I go? Is my relationship worth another chance? How long will I be punished for this mistake? What is the right thing to do? And what about my children?

Echoes of Betrayal introduces us to three main characters/couples; Melvin and Susan, Isaac and Hilary, and Hilda and Bernard. It is a collection of six stories that are entwined and told from the first person narrative. Every detail in the narration, action, reaction, and dialogue is as seen and experienced from the points of view of our protagonists.

The Paradox of the Name and Shame Campaign

There is a Name and Shame Campaign presently taking place on social media. I love it. But I also hate it.

I love it because it has given survivors of sexual abuse – harassment, and rape the confidence to name names without fear of Judgement or retaliation, to some extent. I love it because it gives survivors a power they might feel had been taken away from them when they thought keeping quiet was better than pursuing justice or telling their truth in a world where the lines between consent and force are way too blurry to tell them apart.

Omara, The Forgotten Princess – By David Lungu

I’m so excited for my friend David Lungu who will be releasing his debut novel Omara, the Forgotten Princes in September! I’m sooo looking forward to reading this book because I know for a fact that it’s gonna be just as thrilling and entertaining as the other stories from him I’ve had the privilege of reading in the past.

To Get a Copy….

Synopsis

Omara is a free-spirited young virtuous Zulu woman with a thirst for adventure. Her unorthodox escapades unwittingly earn her the wrath of the people of Nanintenga, a bountiful land of nature’s beauty and resources. To most, Omara is a mere child full of mischief and disregard for tradition and customs that govern and shape the way of life of the Nanintengas. Her refusal to be bound by the laws that limit her status as a woman in the chiefdom leads her on a path paved with trials and tribulation. Omara faces her challenges courageously and emerges on the other side with a refined purpose and a throne to claim.

And this is only the beginning.

Zambia – A Modern Day Animal Farm

“If liberty means anything at all it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.” 

― George Orwell, Animal Farm

Zambia is a modern day Animal Farm.

I rarely write about politics on my personal blog but the situation in Zambia has become so ridiculous I can’t keep myself from purging. “Just because you do not take an interest in politics doesn’t mean politics won’t take an interest in you.” – Pericles. Continue reading
