Nigerian International Book Fair Experience: Where are the authors?

Workshop on writing, publishing & marketing for indie authors
Hello all,

The Nigerian International Book Fair 2016 has come and gone, and I enjoyed it. I enjoyed the fact that I facilitated a workshop and got interesting feedback from 98%, if not 100%, of the attendants. Some sent emails, some called, some I saw the next day looking for information on literary services.

I also enjoyed the fact that I attended the international conference/official opening of the fair, where I met interesting people; there was a book reading, there were seminars and other workshops, and finally the famous Author’s Groove, organized by the Association of Nigerian Authors, titled “Everyone feeds on the author, but who feeds the author?” I did a book presentation, a reading of my book by a Youth Corps member, and a giveaway.
