Kuffour and His Talking Environment

 

 

1.     
What
inspired you to write this book? I was looking to write a book that would have
a lot of humor for its readers, and at the same time, have some salient moral
and civic lessons.

 

2.     
What
exactly is it about and who is it written for? The book is about a lazy farmer
who loved to earn with little or no effort; whose behavior turned out to have
a chain reaction of talking things and animals in his community. The book is
written for children above 6 years.

 

a.      
What
do you hope readers will get out of reading the book? Readers of the book will
benefit the following: Humor and relaxation; the need to work hard; and the
need to play one’s part anywhere one finds oneself.

 

3.     
How
did you decide on the book’s title and cover design? I wanted a captivating and
inviting title and cover that would summarize the events in the book.

 

4.     
What
advice or words of wisdom do you have for fellow writers – other than run!? There
are many things to write about from our environment and experiences. Our daily
living is full of stories of what to write. Look around, and write.  The world wants to read from you.

 

5.     
What
trends in the book world do you see – and where do you think the book
publishing industry is heading? I see a world tending towards turning out lazy
writers who command AI for their scripts, yet become best sellers without
creativity.  The publishing industry may
be heading towards reduction in arts and creativity.

 

6.     
Were
your experiences in your personal life or career that came in handy when
writing this book? Kuffour and His Talking Environment is a derivative of an
African tale I came across as a student about 35 years ago while in high
school.  I transformed the tale into
having more events that would rhyme with the subject matter.

 

7.     
How
would you describe your writing style? Which writers or books is your writing
similar to? My writing is tailored towards retelling African folklore to a
generation that has almost lost their roots. When I was growing up, we used to
have a book series called African Night Entertainment. Though I do not have
access to those books now, I feel my writing is similar to the series.

 

8.     
What
challenges did you overcome in the writing of the book? The challenges I met
were mainly about the decision of names and characters as the folklore was not
originally from my country, but from another African country.  Another challenge was how to draw up events
that will link with one another in line with the title of the book.

 

9.     
If
people can buy or read one book this week or month, why should it be yours? My
book is filled with a captivating story, relatable characters and a lot of
humour that grabs every   reader’s attention from the beginning and
keeps him/her hooked to the end of the book. 
It’s a book full of fun and immersive experiences for the readers.  Kuffour and His Talking Environment has a
unique perspective that sets it apart from the rest. In summary, if a reader is
looking for a book that’s filled with passion, and a unique voice, then my
book, Kuffour and His Talking Environment should be the book.
