    Atilola O Moronfolu (Author) A character having multiple personality disorder decides to express herself. With six different personalities in her head vying for the spotlight, a constant battle occurs as the book progresses. The sagacious one starts with her wise stories, in her usual mature style. As the bitter one, the melancholic one and others take over, more heart wrenching issues are exposed, and the reality of the world we live in comes to play. Each character invites you to her world, to experience what they are experiencing in their own unique way. The book starts with a story about corruption in Corruption Noni, where the writer had the opportunity to interview corruption and then progresses to really deep stories that touch prostitution, religious hypocrisy, marital pressures, and other societal ills. Each story portrays a reality that you can relate with. At the end, the comic one ends up defeats all and is victorious with her funny stories, proving that no matter how twisted our reality is, there is always a reason to laugh in the end.

    Godfessions: Daily Confession of God’s Word and Promises Over Your Life

    ,
    Goke Coker (Author) In a world fraught with evil, encroaching darkness, violence, strife, confusion, attacks on families, failing finances, and health, distractions and emotional instability, man's usual reaction is that of despondency and negative proclamations. In the beginning, when God saw the darkness that covered the face of the earth, He decreed what He wanted to see rather than agree with what He saw. Since we are made in His image, rather than confessing the problem (darkness) we are to confess the solution (the WORD) thereby transforming darkness to light. (Rom 10:10) "For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation" Believing and confessing are an important part of our Christian walk. What becomes manifest in our lives depends on our faith and confession. When our lips contradicts the word of God, we prevent His work in and through us, but when we get our hearts and lips in line with His word, He manifests His grace in us and His power flows through us. God'fessions is the first of four compilations of inspired confessions of God's promises. This book will help you cultivate an awareness of your spiritual blessings and the limitless power of God as well as enable you grow stronger in your faith, as you establish the truth of God's word over you and your household through your declarations. Start Godfessing! Your Change is here!

While he waited for his fate, his marriage which had been overshadowed by his timeless devotion to his work was nearing the precipice. At that point he began to harbour doubts about the career path he has chosen. By a stroke of fortune his luck turned. He struck a big deal that sent shock waves through the bank. It was like bringing home the Holy Grail and suddenly he was loved again. In the revelry of his accomplishment he fell into a brief moment of reflection from which he found the truth that freed him from all his fears. He must then make an inevitable decision- between work and family, fear and happiness.

    Treasures: . . . classic in the modern day

    ,
    Babalola Ibisola (Author) Treasures is a work that attempts to convey its message in an unorthodox manner. Not allowing himself to be limited in any way, the writer has delved into each topic using every contemporary material around him and yet laying out his work in a classic fashion. The writer employed various styles of writing: meter and rhyme. He injected the local materials like neva and even dared to invent words, such as adolicity. Treasures is made more profound by the liberality that it enjoys from the writer. Treasures is rendered in many forms, and each has its uniqueness. Though occasionally secular, it has deeper root in spirituality. Mysteries, adventures, love, endurance, hope, and lots more characterize the work.

    The 14th Tale

    Inua Ellams (Author) 1988: at four-years-old, he short-circuited his home with a silver spoon and a Betamax video player. 1989: stopped a 700-strong student assembly with a tantrum. 1995: was chased through jungle growth by a crazed, frustrated French teacher called Monsieur Batcock...Misfit? Apparently - until a little family research reveals a pattern of mischief reaching as far back as a great grandfather, and so the story begins: I'm from a long line of trouble makers, of ash skinned Africans, born with clenched fists and a natural thirst for battle only quenched by breast milk. They'd suckle as if the white silk sliding between gums were liquid peace treaties from mums. In 'The 14th Tale', Inua vividly describes the exploits of a natural-born mischief growing from clay streets in Nigeria to roof tops in Dublin - and, finally, to heartbreak in London.
