Introduction

Larry Bate Takang (Journalist/Author)Every book added to the bookshelf is a plus. But it is more satisfying when it is a good book. When readers love it…when they laugh uncontrollably in the train, plane, metro or the bus while reading a funny scene or when they frown their faces, touched by a sad portion in the book or when their hearts pound when they read through an anti-climax.

It is as well satisfying when your phone rings off the hook or your mailbox fills with praises and positive reviews. When characters in your book are immortalized and their names used to crack jokes or used as references…

My novel “A Place of Fun and Evil” has been described as…”a thrilling reading spiced with in-depth humour”…and…”a fascinating narration with a very unique style”. Other reviews are found on the readers’ reviews page of this website.
