Today, I am here to make a MASSIVE announcement. I’ve basically been waiting all year to be able to tell you this. Enjoy! xo

My book is finally written!!!
The launch date is March 23, 2015.
The reason I chose this date is that it’s my brother’s birthday.
I figured that if my mother can push out an entire human being on that day, then surely I can pull of launching a book on that date.
The tentative title of the book is “Story, Story”
The reason I titled the book that way is because, well, it’s a story.
It’s not a “how to” guide. It’s not a “here, let me tell you how to live your life” type of book.
It’s a story.
It’s a story about my personal 5 year quest to live my life in a way that makes a difference while doing the things that I genuinely love.
It’s a story about
the good and the bad;
the ups and the downs;
the disappointments and successes;
the surprising lessons, the AHA! moments, and of course, all the crazy foolishness that has happened over the past 5 years.
Have you read the story about my car exploding on the highway?
If you have read that story, then you have a good sense of the types of stories that are in this book.
The actual topic of the book – making a difference and doing what we love before we’re old – is a serious topic.
However, I couldn’t help myself
This book is not a serious book.
It’s quite funny with a heavy helping of foolishness.
I think it’s going to be a lot of fun to read. I’m quite excited about this project and I cannot wait to hold my book in my hands.
That’s the biggest thing for me, really
The thing I want the most is for this to be a book that I am proud of.
I want to wake up in the morning and look at my book thinking, yes, that’s my book.
I want this to be a book that I will be happy to see my name on.
And, by the way,
Something else that’s going to be coming only to my email subscribers is….wait for it….daily VLOGS!!
From now until March 23rd, I will be vlogging daily.
So on Mondays when I send out my usual update email, there will be a link to view my vlog for the week at the bottom *insert excited dance here*.
The vlogs will have all the randomness of my daily life in them.
From my book editing process all the way to the magical Nigerian foods I eat and the crazy dog living in my house.
If you’re into that kind of thing, make sure you subscribe via email.
Depending on how it goes, Mr Beta Mo might make appearances as well.
These vlogs are just a way for me to have an intimate group of people walking this walk and doing this journey with me.
I hope that one day, i’ll get to read your books as well.
Make sure you subscribe via email and I’ll see you next week! xo
