junction as soon as he could but he wasn’t here yet. The sun was already
setting and he could feel the cold breeze touch his body indicating that the
harmattan season was about to begin. He shuddered to think of spending
Christmas in penury. Two years ago, he had taken his family to Ghana for
Christmas and the year before that, they’d been to Nairobi but with the way
things were going this year, he doubted that they’d have any money to feed talk

followed him behind. He had never been to a place like this before. Damien
walked up to the swamp and got into a canoe while Mike followed suit. The canoe

Hello dears.How has your week been? As always my week has been occupied with lots of writing. I know I promised to publish and eBook and I’m working on it. The Promise was my initial proposed story for my eBook but I’ve changed my mind about putting it up for sale just yet. I am working on another eBook and it’s definitely worth the wait.
Well…there’s a new series in town but unlike the rest, this is more captivating and thought provoking. It teaches so many lessons especially about trust because whether we like it or not, we meet new people on a daily basis and sometimes, we don’t know who is who and what motives or intentions they have for us.
The Mobile Thriller Series By Adaeze is a new idea which I’ve been working on for a very long time so I’m glad that it’s finally up. It’s a service subscription which requires readers to subscribe to daily thriller series on a weekly basis for a token of fifty naira (N50) affordable right?
I’d love it if everyone that reads this blog subscribe to this service, I promise to never disappoint you in serving the best stories both here and on the service. Story series will still go up here free of charge as it used to but it’ll be nice if you support my writing ministry and subscribe to this amazing service.
The story goes up thrice a day because there’s a limited space for written content so, you’ll get a full dosage of the series three times a day and each and every day, Saturdays and Sundays included. The series is titled ‘DECEPTION’ and it’s one of a kind.
