Book Cover Reveal: When It's Murder

Dear readers,

I hope you all are doing well, because I am.

I'm happy to officially reveal the cover of my upcoming book, the first [stand-alone] in the Thrilling Mystery Series, "When It's Murder."

I had a lot of ideas for the cover, but I didn't want to give too much away or make the story predictable, and I also wanted something very simple. It then came to me, newspaper clippings... newspaper clippings played an important role in the book, so I thought it would make sense to feature it on the cover.

Tuesday, June 5, 2018

I just finished writing and editing my third book for the year titled "When It's Murder," to be released on Friday, 14th December 2018, because the story starts on that day... I wrote in the future, so that readers can read in the moment as the story unfolds within one week, and then on Christmas day. The first title was "13th Of May," but it only lasted three days, when a chapter in the book inspired the new title.

It's a fast-paced character/dialogue driven mystery/suspense book that I wrote in under two weeks. It wasn't rushed, I'm just an insomniac writer, and it seems I've finally mastered the art and discipline of writing and finishing one book at a time within a given time frame. You can read the book description on the newspaper page 😀.

Review: Ode To A Dancing Pen

Book Description:

Ode To A Dancing Pen is a collection of different poems inspired by different emotions, situations and happenstances; love, being chief. I love love and all its twists. It is my essence.

***

"Ode To A Dancing Pen" is a poetry book by Nigerian author Brenda Eziafakaego Nwafor.

A splendid collection of 52 poems based on love, social issues and some general topics. I loved every bit of it.

From the first poem, titled "Beginnings and Endings" to the last poem titled "This River," the author lined up the poems in a way that they flowed perfectly. I went back and read some other poems over and over again.

My favorite was "Loveticide," a real love poem, and a touching one, but with an unexpected twist in the end.

I'm happy to have been one of the pre-release reviewers of this debut poetry book by Brenda Eziafakaego Nwafor, and I can't wait to see what she produces next.

It was a lovely read, a must have.

5 STARS

Coming Soon: Poetry Book - Ode To A Dancing Pen

It feels so good to be a part of someone’s success story!

I first met Brenda Eziafakaego Nwafor in 2015 at an ANA (Association of Nigerian Authors) reading, and she recited her poem “Serial Date” with so much energy and passion that when she was done, she was asked to recite it again and again.

Brenda had been trying to release her debut poetry book “Ode To A Dancing Pen” for some time and always met hiccups, but happy that this year her dream will become reality!

I’m also happy to have helped with the editing and formatting of her manuscript, and to have been a part of the pre-release reviewers of this poetry book and I loved every bit of the 52 poems in it... she was inspired by #love, and as she put it, LOVE is her muse and her distraction.  The ebook will be released on 3/Sept/2018 but you can preorder your copy now at half the price on #okadabooks and #smashwords. Thank me later.


I'll be posting my review soon on my blog, website and on Goodreads.

Literary Yours,
CMO.
