How are you all doing? Its been a minute and I just couldnt bear to see the same post on my blog anymore and so I decided to drop a note to say hello. I have been doing great, all glory to God. I was ecstatic to finally see that The Small Print landed in Lagos and was well recieved. I say a huge thanks to everyone that has bought the novel. Your pocket shall never dry in Jesus name!
The novels are at Patabah Bookstore in Surulere, Debonair in Yaba and Shoprite Lekki. If you have read it, and enjoyed it ( or not not-)), please feel free to leave a feedback at the Praise for TSP section on my page. The month of April was quite amazing for me. The Small Print was featured in Genevieve Magazine ( Betty Irabor is an amazingly humble and beautiful woman- and I am not just saying this because she loved The Small Print..lol)…I was also blessed to have been featured on Inspiration FM’s bookclub show with Titi Adelagun. That was a wonderful experience, even though I wasnt prepared for it. Lol. I totally miscalculated when the show would be recorded and so dialled in not knowing I was going to be recorded for the show! All in all, it was an amazing experience and Titi is a great host. Really.
I have been reading a great deal lately, and I am currently reading one of Terri Blackstock’s novel. I recently finished Francine River’s Mark of The Lion series and I have one word for that novel: woah!. There is nothing better than a novel that can make you reflect on your spiritual life and your standing with God…and Francine Rivers has just the knack for being able to do that. I hope I can one day write like her.
Spiritually, I am still hungry and thirsty for God. I long for him so much sometimes its hurts. I have come to realise that I am just one of those people who cannot but serve God. It is in me. It is who I am. For that, every thing I will ever do, every word I will ever write will glorify him..because I have no other option. I have given my life to him..and he has captured it so tightly…no one can take me out of his hands. Of course there are down moments… as long as we are on earth, there will be moments of temptation and doubt. Yes, there are days I wonder where God is…but never for long. All I need to do is step out and feel the gentle breeze flutter over my face and I realise that just because I cannot see Him doesnt mean He isnt there. Infact…its his invisibility that makes him more real. He is in everything…
That said, I hope you are all well. I will put up a sensible post soon, I promise, but I find it a right challenge to update my blog regularly with full time work, book-writing, church monthly magazine, mother duties, wife duties! I try.. but please understand and keep me in your prayers. The Lord is my strenght.
I am praying for you ( I pray for everyone that reads my novel(s)) and I trust God that He will continue to prove Himself mighty on your behalf.
Enjoy the rest of your week,
