The title of this post, when roughly translated from the Yoruba to the English means, 'don't be angry.'
There are few things more unpleasant than a writer who only blogs to promote their books and has nothing to say but buy my book, read my reviews, like my fanpage. So e ma binu.
I've been very busy though. One 10,000 word essay just handed in on Friday, a 5,000 due in 22 days and another 10,000 to be done before the month runs out. If you think this is scanty excuse, e ma binu.
And of course the novel just came out. Southbank, Radio 3, Oxford Literary Festival, World Service, Black Book Swap, I've gone to all these places talking about my book and hoping to find new readers. They've all been wonderful and I've enjoyed them so much but sadly they've not left much time for blogging. So please, e ma binu.
And then we have the finals. May 18, the last exam I'll ever write as an undergraduate student and now less than two months away.
So in the meantime, please buy my book, read my reviews and like my fanpage and as you do, ejo o, e ma binu.
