5 Minutes with Anthony Livingstone, Author, Enemy of Darkness

Anthony Livingstone’s professional background is completely rooted in music. Not satisfied with the normal performance of music in a concert setting or a band setting, he began to experiment with merging other art forms together with music which gave rise to a new concept of the Christian Opera he developed and saw performed in several churches in Nigeria. As early as the late 90s, he became aware the potential of musically dramatized plays and the enormous emotional response it could bring forth.

Little did he know that writing, a hobby which he engaged in solely for pleasure, would become more precious to him than his first love – music.

He talked to me about the writing process, the Christian Fantasy Genre, and his latest novel which was recently published online as an e-book, Enemy of Darkness. Read the interview HERE.

If You’ve Ever Dreamed of Publishing a Book, Read This

 

Naija Single Girl, whose novel, 29, Single and Nigerian, I edited in 2015, wrote a detailed blog post about the entire writing process.

Although she mentioned me in it, I just found it today and I’m sharing because I love the way she frankly outlined her journey, from the first day she wrote down a word, to writing 500 words a day, then 1000, and so on. She also talked about her search for an editor who would preserve the Nigerian English that makes the book what it is, getting a good cover design, and finding an affordable publisher.

It’s a good read for anyone who intends to write and publish their book. Click HERE to read it, and remember to share!
