I’m absolutely delighted to share the news that The Senator’s Daughter is a finalist at the Next Generation Indie Book Awards for the romance category! Yay!
This is my first international accolade and I’m so pleased.
When a stranger contacted me directly on Goodreads with so much praise for the novel, and even suggesting that I put it up for an award, I was sceptical about it. Not because I didn’t believe in the quality of my story, but because I’ve read a lot of books with award tags on them that didn’t hit the mark for me.
I always think there’s something else these judges look for that I don’t quite understand.
I ruminated on this suggestion for a few weeks and decided to go for it in December. After entry, I simply forgot about it, not really hoping for much.
To my uttermost delight, I received a congratulatory email and a certificate pronouncing me as a 2019 finalist.
This is an amazing news for me, and a huge encouragement. It makes me feel positive about the decision I made in 2016 to start this journey of sharing my stories with the world.
It’s never too late!
Even though I didn’t win, being a self-published finalist with other international romance writers is a massive victory for me.
Thanks to Jess for encouraging me to just go for it, to my family and friends who have my back and most of all, to all my readers. You all rock!
God is good.

It’s an honour to be nominated alongside other awesome authors. This is a dream come true. I started my journey after another wonderful author, Tolulope Popoola, encouraged me to dust off my manuscripts and go for it. Since then, I haven’t looked back.
Thanks for buying my books, reading them, talking about them and reviewing them. I’m grateful for all your support.

To be on a list with writers whose books I have read and people I admire is humbling. Thanks to the Nigerian Writers Awards for taking out time to put up this list. Most of all I’m grateful to God who blessed me with a family that supports me through all this.
This has been an amazing year. And this is like icing on a cake to keep me encouraged.
