Officially Releasing 'True Confessions' Today in Celebration of My Mom


* I am singing unto the Lord, singing Hallelujah!*

Happy Birthday Mom!
I miss you so much. I'm releasing my
new book today in honour of you!
I am super excited today and I cannot brag on God enough for his boundless love and mercies towards me. Today, the 25th of August has always been a good day because it is my mother’s birthday. However, since 1986, my family has had a bittersweet feeling about this date being as she passed on that year. I have chosen this date for the ‘ceremonial/official release’ of my new book – True Confessions - to honour her memory and celebrate her life. You see, my mom, Monisola Bakare Adefolalu was a simple woman with a BIG heart and releasing what I believe is a little BIG book on her birthday just feels so right and my way of sealing joy into this date forever! Mom, Happy Birthday! I miss you so much but I know you live on in all our hearts! You know, I think you would have loved reading ‘True Confessions’ because you, like me, always loved simple, uncomplicated things (plus it’s small! You were not a fan of heavy, bulky books at all*smiling*)…

My new little BIG book released today
in celebration of a simple GREAT mom!
Praise God!


Anyway, there you have it People! Glory to God! Please go tell it on the mountain that 'True Confessions' is now available for N2,000.00 at Laterna Bookshop, Terra Kulture and Patabah Bookstores and will be available online (locally and internationally) shortly. Remember, for every copy you buy, N500 is going to the Raziela Foundation, an NGO that provides education to some of the poorest of the poor children in Edo, Akwa-Ibom and Ondo States.



And Whoop! Whoop! A ‘True Confessions’ book-signing event at Laterna Bookshop is scheduled to take place in the second week of September 2013 but I shall keep you posted on that so watch this space!
