I stumbled unto this picture online and was intrigued by it. In one glance, it told me a story. The creator of this amazing piece of work is Peniel Enchill. She makes amazing illustrations of women and designed the book cover for Arese Ugwu’s The SmartMoney Woman. So I tried coining a story from the picture I had seen. And that gave birth to the first in the series #LoveIs; My Loss, Your Hell
And then there was the second #LoveIs; Like A Freshly Planted Garden
And then the third episode, #LoveIs; Like Catching Grenades
#LoveIs; The Aftermath is supposed to be the concluding series but I decided to do something different.
I was part of a book writing and publishing workshop organised by Osayi Emokpae Lasisi and the insight from the webinars was so mind blowing, I decided to try my hands on revising the work I had done with this short story using the insights from the webinars.
So I have compiled the entire series into a pdf downloadable format with the concluding series which I am yet to publish on the blog.
Some changes have been made to the original manuscript to add more depth, more perspective and to create a strong and really good story.
So, please click on the link below, enter your email address and on the 9th of March, as a prelude to my birthday, I will share the links with you so you can download and read the full story at once and all in one place.
It’s absolutely free.
The short story will also be on okadabooks.com for a very little amount but as long as you sign up via the link below for a copy of the book, it will be sent to you at no cost.
Remember to share, leave your feedback as regards the stories, and like them as well.
