Less than 2 weeks to go before my latest book “Nigeria’s Soldiers of Fortune: the Abacha to Obasanjo Years” hits bookshelves. Over the next few weeks, I will be announcing the title of each chapter, one chapter title per day.
The title of chapter 2 is “Stepping Aside”… #NIGSOF
Hurst Publishers (in collaboration with Oxford University Press) has published a new book on the Biafra v Nigeria civil war called: “Surviving Biafra: A Nigerwife’s Story“. The book can be bought with a 25% discount by using the code “BIAFRA25”.
Unlike many other books on Biafra (many of which are written by protagonist generals on either side of the war), this book is different because it is written by: (a) a woman, and (b) by someone who was not a combatant, but rather a civilian Westerner married to a Nigerian. You can read a summary of the book at the link above.
If you missed my live Twitter interview with Okadabooks, you can see the Storified record of it here. I discussed a lot: Nigeria, is history, the state of publishing, and even jollof rice and puff puff!;-)
If you want to read sample chapters of my book Soldiers of Fortune, you can download a sample chapter or two here. Then you can decide whether to read more, some, or all of the book.
