Many people wondered why I wrote about ‘the occult’ in my first book. Well, I guess that was what was on my mind when I wrote the book. I am writing again ()someone said I have gained boldness with the launch of Njansi). This time, the subject is more appealing I hope.
Till Death is about Marriage. That would surprise some people who are close to me but like I told Osas, I do have a very sound imagination. Till Death starts out with the wedding ceremony of Emeka and Dupe being narrated by one of their unknown guests. The variety of ‘stuff’ known to happen in Nigerian weddings are represented in some kind of ‘maze’ (for want of words).
In chapter two, (which I am yet to start), the couple start seeing marriage from inside and at some point, a gruesome event shakes the union and the true journey begins. It will definitely be a very emotional and ‘romantic’ story. I am writing a bit at a time and I am sure I can make 365 pages in a year this time. lol.
Look out for it early next year while you digest Njansi. By the way, a preview is available on this site.
