Echoes leading up to the Book Launch

A very shaky beginning

Let me tell you a bit about my journey leading to the book launch. On the 3rd of March, I woke up with serious pimples on my face. Being someone that suffers from severe allergies every now and then, I assumed it was just one of those allergy moments. A week later, they were not going away despite taking meds, including antibiotics. They were becoming worse. I had never ever had an acne problem in my life so I wasn’t quite sure how to deal with it at age 31. Continue reading

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.

A THING CALLED VICARIOUS TRAUMA

It was four years ago when I decided to set up my personal blog. It was an exciting moment for me because it meant I had finally gathered the courage needed to face my inadequacies and strengths as an aspiring writer.

I wanted to create a platform where I could interact with people that read my stories and articles that I write here and on different other platforms. I wanted to receive feedback from them, take criticism, and grow. And of course it was going to be a great place for me to share my thoughts and adventures. However, somewhere along the way, things changed. Continue reading
