I made the shortlist - Quramo Writers' Prize 2018

Hey readers,

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

Just a few moments after sharing information about my baby's birthday and the availability of his book across all e-book distribution platforms (see HERE), I got some amazing news.

So I entered the 2018 Quramo Writers' Prize - QWP  earlier this year, and sincerely, I didn't think my story was going to get shortlisted.

Why?

Mama, It's Me! - Now available across all platforms


Hello readers,

I hope you all are doing well.

I can't believe it's already been a year since I wrote this book, I mean exactly one year since the first draft of the book was completed. Do you know why? Because it's my baby's first birthday today!!!

I know you all are wondering if there would be another book for his first year, but don't worry, I already thought about that and began a draft. But then I changed my mind. I haven't decided to stop it completely, it's just on hold. The content is actually very interesting, so I don't want to let it go like that. Time would tell what becomes of it.

When the book was published on 15/05/2018 (read story HERE), it was available only on Amazon, so I'm happy to announce that it is now available across all platforms. Please tell someone to tell someone to tell someone.

You can get your copy on Smashwords, Okadabooks, Barnes&Noble, iBooks, and many other ebook distribution platforms. If you don't find the book on your preferred platform, please let me know, and I'll try my best to get it on there.

I hope you enjoy reading it, as much as I loved writing it... it's my baby's book after all. I have to love it.

When It's Murder: Character Look Alike - Kevin, Karen and Michelle Lake

#Goodmorning #Wednesday #Humpday

#CharacterLookAlike

If my book “When It’s Murder” was a #Nollywood movie, three minor but important characters, Kevin, Karen and Michelle Lake would be played by Timini Egbuson, Adesua Etomi and Rita Dominic respectively.

Just like Timini, Kevin is cute, calm and soft spoken. Although I've only seen Timini in one movie and he was a tough bandit, but people have commended his role in MTV Shuga, so I believe he can interpret the role of Kevin perfectly.

His sister Karen, who returns from college because of some disturbing news is similiar to Adesua Etomi. Just her character in general, gentle, soft spoken, but would speak her mind when necessary and still appear calm.


Michelle Lake, the mother of Kevin and Karen, is similar to Rita Dominic. She's always an actress I've liked right from time. Rita Dominic will easily play the role of Michelle Lake who is pretty, serious and not picky with her friends. She accommodates everyone irrespective of their story or history, and that's what lands her in trouble.

When It's Murder: Character Look Alike - Sergeant Joe Kiddy

#Hello #Monday #Newweek #Newenergy

#CharacterLookAlike

If my book “When It’s Murder” was a #Nollywood movie, another minor but important character, Sergeant Joe Kiddy would be played by Ramsey Nouah. I saw a lot of movies with Ramsey Nouah in the past, unfortunately, I don't remember any titles. But his looks, coupled with the way he interprets his roles make him similar to Sergeant Kiddy. Plus I believe Ramsey Nouah will play a good detective, so he wins the role.

Sergeant Kiddy is blackmailed into opening a case he never even knew existed. He is reluctant at first, but when fresh evidence lands on his desk, he takes things seriously. In the end, he is surprised at how deep things run, but he is able to solve the case.

When It's Murder: Character Look Alike - Gab

#Hello #Saturday #Familyday #Restday #Latepost

#CharacterLookAlike

If my book “When It’s Murder” was a #Nollywood movie, a minor but important character, Gab Mason would be played by Abayomi Alvin, similar to his character as Akeem in "Girl Next Door."

Just like Akeem, young, intelligent, mechanical engineer, and good at his job, Gab Mason is young, intelligent, a techie and a genius. One of his skills is what puts Emilia on the right track to finding her purpose, and another skill gives her an understanding of what she's dealing with.

Gab is Martins's son (a Nollywood actor for Martins is yet to be discovered), and together they make an amazing team.

When It's Murder: Character Look Alike - Martins

#Hiya #Friday #FriYay #TGIF

#CharacterLookAlike #ItsBeenAWhile

If my book “When It’s Murder” was a #Nollywood movie, another important character, Martins Mason would be played by... ? This is a tough one for me, as he's everyone's favourite, and even after this much time, no image still comes to mind.

Perhaps a few actors could fit the physical specification (a man with a potbelly, some hair and a beard), but I tried for a while to look for a Nollywood actor similar to Varys (in the Game of Thrones) but didn't get anyone. Martins is very resourceful and knows how to get any information he wants... a skill that allows him to team up with Emilia, the main character and help her find answers.

If you know any Nollywood actor who fits the bill, please drop a comment 😊.

PS: Good news #comingsoon about the book!!! New release date in 2019, no longer #14dec2018 #happysad
