Allelujah! A Book Is Born! Allelujah!

I am on the verge of publishing a book after inspiration from one of my favourite writers, Professor J. Abbenyi of North Carolina State University. The book is entitled African Folktales for Children. Take it from me, it is a far cry from a simple retelling of the same old village folk stories. Watch this space for further details. A design of the cover is shown below.

I have a completed draft of another book, The Clan Oracle and Other Short Stories, a collection of ten short stories akin to Mark Twain's early works. Like they say, it is futile to chase after two hares. I am chasing after the first hare, metaphorically speaking, and will be after the other as soon as I bag the first one.
