It has been well over a year since I blogged on this space, but it has been far from an uneventful one. In that time, I got married, assumed new responsibilities at work, created two new blogs and most importantly, finished my book.
The other two blogs I created were designed to provide a much-needed split from my politically-themed tomes especially as they are more niche areas which are of interest to me. One is www.clean-efficiency.com, which is a social entrepreneurial venture I am pioneering around energy efficiency and sustainable development. The other is www.ourbeachcity.wordpress.com, which I started with my wife and details our global travel adventures.
Finishing the book was important to me and in order to do so, I purposely stayed away from commenting on socio-political issues affecting Africa in order to channel my creative juices towards the literary effort. The book is entitled "A Rainy Season" and it is a non-fictional account of life in Lagos, Nigeria during the turbulent days of the mid- to late-nineties, seen through the eyes of eight different protagonists. Putting my thoughts on paper in that most indelible of forms is thrilling as I cover many of the issues my writing in this blog and other news outlets has touched on.
I will be providing a more detailed synopsis and information on obtaining a copy of the book in a future posting. Stay tuned!
