I am thrilled to share with you, that on August 3rd, 2012 on a rainy storm-forecast-ed Friday, my first book was launched. The earlier hours of that day was poised with rain, thunder, and just a dreary feeling of impossibility. Still, faith remained steadfast. Prayers persisted against the odds, and God triumph in the end.
We the people who attended the book launch were adamant at defying all odds. In faith I called and text messaged everyone whom I could, and assured them that we will go ahead with this important event. Some folks doubted it would or could occur, others were great motivators. — Let’s Do It! So we did.
This emerged to be more than I anticipated, envisioned or could have ever hoped for. Still, I missed a few people. People whom I know would have been there had it not been for the weather, distance, and life’s barriers. This however, will not hinder my gratitude. I say thanks be to God to all who came, those who bought books, and offered congratulatory messages. Each of you made the day what it was.
The reviews from all those who offered them, when presented were well received by the audience. Thanks to all of you who offered me your thoughts on the book.
Today, I feel more confident. More people are aware of my book, more are requesting it, and others can’t wait for the next. Still I know that the challenge of getting it promoted further has just begun. All those who are pushing it, by sharing the idea of my book, reading it and recommending it to others, I appreciate. I see that a people of my culture have found much out of this book, to lengths where they are now telling others about it. Still, people of a different culture can very well relate.
Thanks again everyone. Let God be praised. Meanwhile, my pen via my fingers are still on the move.
