Release Day!

Reposted from Monday 14th March 2022

Hey everyone,
Finally my debut novel is not just “coming soon” anymore – IT’S HERE! YES! Pop the champagne, break out the ale, or squeeze the fruit, as long as it’s not green veggie juice(kidding, maybe).

The ebook will be exclusive to Lulu. Don’t worry, its epub format is compatible with not only kindle, but all other ebook readers so you can enjoy on the go wherever, whenever, and however(overkill, right?) Plus Lulu really does have fairer ratios and just as standard the services and reach as Amazon. The ebook will not be on Amazon so you cannot wait for it to appear in your kindle. The good news is that the ebook you purchase on Lulu can still be read and stored in your kindle.

You can find the paperback version on Lulu too though it will most-likely be cheaper on the TSL publisher’s website so have a peek there as well before purchase.

I’m really excited and I hope that you enjoy reading this as much as I did writing it.

Stay safe everyone, Stay loving.

    1. Thank you so much Chris. Maybe hold on a little ordering and i inquire if the publisher can do it faster. I think in the future there might be a way to distribute from the homeland here, for Africa. Please give me 2 days to get back to you on this.

    1. Thank you so much Radhika. I just made a clarification from the publisher.
      Alas, the ebook is exclusive to Lulu so it won’t appear in your kindle unless you buy from Lulu and store it there for your personal reading.
