This Is One Of My Most Controversial Books Yet

This post has been seen 4126 times.

I just finished the manuscript of my 3rd book. It has required a lot of sleepless nights and soccerless days, but its finally done. I am particularly excited about this book because it is easily one of the most controversial books I have written in my short writing career.

It talks about Religion, Education and Nigeria in a very frank and honest manner that I have not seen written before. It does not beat around the bush or use stories to hint at a sub-plot with an ulterior meaning. It just says it as it is as is evidence in some of the chapter titles “corruption is like sex” “how we beat the freaking creativity out of our children” and ” How Respect Might Be Killing Nigeria.”

Also thanks to all those that kept pushing me to complete the book, especially Kene Nkwontah, appreciate the constant reminders. Thanks Ngozi Ilondu and Abiola Bashorun as well. And to everyone else out there that has asked…how is your book going. Those little words have many times helped me get through a writing slump, thanks for asking. It is not done yet, as we still have to get someone to edit, layout, re-design the book cover, get testimonials, jump of a cliff…etc…

Below is the screenshot of my computer at 8:12 PM Sunday evening May 19th, 2013 when the book was officially done. Check out the chapter listing below…hope you are excited like me!

  1. Gosh, that’s a lot of chapters! Just one little thing, chapter 9- I thought ajebuta was spelt ‘aje-butter’? Also, there should be no apostrophe biko (by the way did you say you were looking for an editor? 😉 ) looks good!

    How long will it take for someone to edit, layout, re-design the book cover, get testimonials, jump of a cliff…etc? Rough estimate, when do you think the book will be launched officially?

  4. I do trust all the concepts you’ve presented in your post. They’re very convincing and can certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts are too brief for novices. May you please extend them a bit from subsequent time? Thank you for the post.
