The Ghost in GhostWriter


If you are a writer and you want to make money, (whilst you wait for your own work to do its thing) I think ghostwriting is one of those roles you naturally fall into. A ghostwriter, according to wiki, is a writer hired to author literary or journalistic works, speeches or other texts that are officially credited to another person. In other words, you do all the work and someone else’s name is on...

Thicker than Water Excerpt


WORDS   Ayoola summons me with these words – Korede, I killed him. I had hoped I’d never hear those words again.     BLEACH   I bet you didn’t know that bleach masks the smell of blood. Most people use bleach indiscriminately, assuming it is a catch-all product, never taking the time to read the list of ingredients on the back, never taking the time to return to the recently...

Three is a Crowd_Chapter 6


Demi did not want to be at work, but heartbreak was not one of the reasons listed for taking a day off. Her dreams of a future with Tosin had died, but she was fairly certain that that was not to what they were referring when they said death of a close relative. She still hadn’t congratulated Dotun or Tosin. But no-one in the office appeared to have noticed. Everyone was too occupied with...

Time and the Commonwealth


Time fades all things and all memories, whether they are good or bad. So, I write to remember. I document my writing journey because I know that one day, the struggle will seem less like a long and winding river and more like the smooth and steady course (Pocahontas, anybody?). One day, someone will tell me that I was lucky and I want to be able to provide evidence when I tell them that luck had...

My Entry in the 2015 Etisalat Flash Fiction Competition


Hi!!! So I entered the 2015 Etisalat flash fiction competition with a story that was born here. I will need as many votes as possible to enter the shortlist, so please vote. The story and link are below: She is angry with me. I can tell, because her lips are trembling, her eyes are dilated, and her chest is rising and falling really fast. Both our eyes dart to the knife on the table, the light...

The Time Has Come


I believe the time has come for me to move on from this blog. I’ll certainly miss it, but I am trying to manage too many sites at once, and not managing any of them all that well. So I had an epiphany – what if I combined some of my sites into one mega cool site. I think there is a way to transfer my subscribers to my new website, but if there isn’t I’ll put up the details...

So I’m Starting A Creative Writing Workshop…Yay Me


For the month of November and as a supplement to the Nanowrimo event, I will be hosting a free creative writing workshop. Hosting not teaching. It is an avenue for us all to learn and grow but as a host I will be providing activities, prompts, structure and lots and lots of encouragement. The workshop is for anyone who would like to 1) finish a 50,000 word novel 2) improve their writing skills 3)...

My First Book Trailer


It seemed like yesterday that I wrote a post on book trailers. I had only just come across them, even though I have been told that they have been around for a whiiiiiiile.
Anywho I knew that one day I would attempt to do one of my own, so…TADA!!!

I would love to know your thoughts and where you think improvements can be made.
Also the book can be downloaded for FREE here:
