I just took delivery of the very first copies of ‘Pretending to be President’. They look good and that means that all is set for my first book to hit the bookshelves in a few days. I am very delighted and humbled and deeply impressed by the quality of the print from Combert Impressions.
It’s surreal. I am still asking myself: “so there is a book with my name written on it?”
I’d get used to the feeling very soon.
For now, I have great pleasure in inviting you to join me on ‘Weekend City Show’ on Joy FM this Saturday – Independence Day – for the ‘launch’ of ‘Pretending to be President’. I’ve been told it’s going to be the first radio launch of a book in Ghana. And it starts from 7am.
The founder and leader of the Noko Fio Party, B. K. Oduro, has kindly agreed to be our special guest. I haven’t seen him in a long time and I am looking forward to our ‘reunion’.
After a few words have been said to officially declare the book launched, I will be signing autographs for everyone who is kind enough to part with Ten Ghana Cedis (GHC 10) for a copy of the book.
Later in the afternoon, I will join my Joy FM colleagues and some of our friends from other corporate organisations for the ‘Sports Invitational Tournament’ at the El Wak Stadium. I will do my best to help ‘The Super Hitters’ win the trophy at stake and shortly thereafter, I’d go back to autographing copies of ‘Pretending to be President’.
I’ve never looked so much forward to March 6 like I am doing this year.
I hope and pray you make time spend a part of your Independence Day celebrations with me. I look forward to making a lot of new friends (and some money) on that day.
In the meantime, I’d be posting reviews of the book, written by some of my friends who kindly agreed to read the first manuscript of the book. I can’t say their reviews are entirely objective.
So when you read the book and you feel like writing a review, I’d gladly post it on this site.
See you on Saturday.
