"There And Back On Time" A Nairalander's Novel Out On Paperback by ZUBY77(m): 7:40pm On Nov 26, 2015
Zuby was an African immigrant in Europe. After his asylum process in Germany, he joined the local drug dealers, but when police found drugs in his room, he disappeared to Portugal.
In Portugal, Zuby met Jennifer, a teenage prostitute from Nigeria, and decided to help her quit the job. He nearly got killed while trying to save Jennifer from human traffickers. Madam Grace, a powerful human trafficker planned to kill Zuby since he was able to convince Jennifer to quit prostitution. She chased him all over Portugal, sending hired killers to eliminate him. Zuby succeeded in evading her until he ran back to Germany with Jennifer where he started drug business again.
With German Polizei on his tail, he disguised himself in different forms to hide from them while he controlled his drug business in Berlin. He
managed to survive until he ran back to Nigeria.

"There and Back on Time" is the first book of the Global Runs series. The thriller opens up the world of human traffickers, drug cartels and pimps. In the book, one is expected to find the routes taken by the human smugglers who own apartments in North Africa where they prepare the teenagers for onward transportation into Europe through the Mediterranean Sea.
With his entry into the writing world, Samson Akpaka won the best writer of all time on Nairaland.com. He went on to become a master
storyteller with his experience as an immigrant in Europe.
He was born and raised in Nigeria.

It's already out. Coming to Nigeria in no time.
The price for the paperback will be determined by how many percentage the publishers remove from the quantity I ordered. We are still in negotiations.

The ebook version is already on the global runs website and can be securely purchased through Interswitch's voguepay. Or direct bank deposit.

It's interesting to see how far you've been able to go with your story. I read through all your sojourn via the original posts and also the refined version.

My conjecture however is that the book just like the story itself is been proselytized solely for members of this forum and not necessarily for the reading public. I was hoping the book will offer a complete divergence in the writing form and not on the same par with the original.

Please take this is an isolated and a personal opinion which is based on my own assessment of the quality and variables in both the loopworks and overall editing.

Above all,I must commend you for the conceptualized thoughts and the efforts you have put into the works so far.

Well.....I was hoping you would be able to polish that story by probably entrusting it to a professional editor(no disrespect to your editor) and turn that story into a bestseller.

It is important to remain conscious of the ethical liabilities of writing. You need to be concerned about language usage and the avoidance of offensive linguistic tendencies in order to appeal to a blend of global readers.

A typical example is that you do not make sweeping generalizations about a specific gender, ethnic minority, or any other category of people when writing for a broader class of readers. Also, when referring to racial groups, you use accurate and politically correct terminology.

The best story I have ever read. I am one of your followers that always demanded for more post after the usual 2-post per day back then. I am jealous of your writing prowess and most importantly your wit.
