Happy Father's Day: New Challenge

Dear all,

#Sunday #FathersDay #SuperHeroes

Today is an important day because fathers also need to be celebrated!

This post made me realise that I have no story about the sentiments, struggles, and sacrifices of fathers, so I’m challenging myself to produce one next year to celebrate Father’s Day.

Happy Father’s Day to my father, my FIL, Jamie’s father, and to all those who play the role of a father in the lives of others.

You rock. Keep being you.
The celebration continues. This is to every mother out there and those who play a motherly role to anyone at all. May your labour never be in vain.

This time, Ann Taylor's poem 'My Mother' plays in my head.

Also, by the end of the day, one subscriber will win an autographed e-copy of my Novella titled 'All That Glitters' that features a mother with a dark secret.

Now, the second celebration. My crime novel titled 'When It's Murder' is out today, exclusively on Amazon. Get your copy here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08WLBGKSH


Finally, congratulations to Nduko o'Matigere, Erumena Amata, and Ahmed Adelalu who each won an e-copy of the book.

I hope you enjoy it!

New Book: Hotel Room Murder

Dear all,

#TGIF #CrimeFiction #ComingSeptember

My new book has now been published for pre-order. Yay!

Description: Two people are found dead in a compromising position in a hotel room. With little evidence, no witnesses, no suspects, and no leads, the case seems impossible to solve.

But there’s a breakthrough for Inspector Tunde Osbourne when a private investigator shows up with information that changes the course of the investigation.

The inspector must now team up with the P.I. to unravel the mystery.

New Book: Under My Skin... a novel in verse

Dear all,

#NewBook #NovelInVerse #MondayMotivation

I just completed my first ‘poetry novel’. Yay!

A special ‘thanks’ to Toki Mabogunje, President of the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and Published Poet, who indirectly pushed me to write this novel in verse by encouraging me to share my poems with the world. Thanks for accepting to write the foreword, which on its own, is a beautiful story. It means a lot to me.

Many thanks as well to three fantastic writers: Linda Edem-Davies for also pushing me to share my poems, Chioma Ebele Mbanisi for adding some juice to my imagination, and Brenda Eziafakaego Nwafor, my writing partner, for vetting the juice.

To my sisters, the real storytellers, Nne, Eby, and Nkay, you rock!

International Women's Day: Eight Days To Live

Dear all.

#March8 #ChooseToChallenge #SuperWoman

I celebrate women yesterday, today, and tomorrow. Keep playing your part, keep leading, keep shining, and keep winning.

As I write this, Helen Reddy's wonderful song 'I Am Woman' plays in my head.

My website subscribers all got a gift today: my novella, titled 'Eight Days To Live' and features a strong woman as the protagonist. It's fiction, but a story of hope inspired by the Coronavirus Covid19 and written in a record 2 days in March 2020 while battling malaria.

You can also get a free autographed copy from my website until tomorrow. Please visit: https://www.cmokonkwo.com/iwd
