    I definitely know how much you adore ‘The Sun by Night’ by Benjamin Kwakye and the noise you’ve made about that book. I’m really looking forward to reading it although I’ve not yet come across one in the book stores. I hope it wouldn’t disappointment me though!

      Hmm! Linda, I do understand you. I understand how much I have raised your interest in this particular book but I can assure you that it wouldn’t disappoint you. Here is a cake to taste: The story is partly written in the second person narrative and that alone would bite you hard. It is beautifully written and then has a strong theme. I look forward to your comments when you have finally read it.

  3. Hi Geosi,

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. What a comprehensive site you have! I love the way you structure your reviews with the rating, genre, excerpt etc, and then give your own thoughts. And you seem to have read and interviewed so many authors who are unfamiliar to me – I’m sure I’ll pick up some great recommendations here.

    Hi Geosi, how can you help promote my literature novel internationally? My name is Edem, a child advocate from Ghana. My first novel, Daylight received rescued the child honour. My third book, The twin faith is about how the moral values of an african folks were adored and over practiced leading them into frequent stragedy and if the sacrificed twins or the gospel preachers don’t return, the entire village shall be wipe off. It’s very intriguing and has its suspense displayed in order.

    happy to come across (you and) your poems (and hence your blog) via Kalahari Review. I thought they were not doing well because they were publishing bad poetry until I read your super pieces there. best regards. http://www.kalaharireview.com/fictionpoetry/2013/9/28/my-first-juicy-job-night-in-the-street.html
