Hello, dear readers!

I am excited to share a behind-the-scenes look at the research process for my upcoming political thriller novel, “Vendetta.” It’s been a wild ride, and I want to give you an exclusive peek into how I’ve been gathering information, talking to experts, and crafting the intricate world of law and political intrigue that awaits you.

1. The Idea: Where It All Began

The journey began with a simple question: What if a political godfather had the power to manipulate national events for his own benefit? From there, I started building the foundation of my story – a web of justice, betrayal, and suspense that would keep readers on the edge of their seats.

2. Building the World: Researching the Setting

To create a realistic and immersive world, I had to dive deep into the world of politics, law, and shadowy organizations. I read countless news articles, books, and reports on politics, law, and the inner workings of various intelligence services. This research helped me develop a solid understanding of the national landscape in which “Vendetta” would unfold.

3. Discussion with Experts: Gathering Insights

To ensure accuracy and authenticity, I reached out to various experts in the fields of politics, law, security, human rights and political science. These discussions provided invaluable insights and helped me understand the intricacies of the political world and the various motivations behind their actions. Some of the experts I had the pleasure of speaking with included:

– A former Students Union President with years of experience as a student politician
– A lawyer who specializes in political cases
– A political science professor with extensive knowledge of global affairs
– A human rights activists who led one of the #EndSars protest in October 2020

4. The Art of Fact-Checking: Ensuring Accuracy

As a political thriller author, it is important to strike the right balance between fiction and reality. I spent so many months verifying facts, checking sources, and cross-referencing information to make sure the events in “Vendetta” were grounded in truth. While I took some creative liberties to keep the story engaging and fast-paced, I made sure that the core details were as accurate as possible.

5. Putting It All Together: Crafting the Story

Once I had gathered enough research and insights, I began weaving the narrative of “Vendetta” together. I developed complex characters with hidden agendas and shifting loyalties, and I wrote tense and action-packed scenes that would leave readers breathless. As the story developed, I continued to consult with my expert contacts to ensure that my portrayal of events, tactics, and technologies remained authentic and believable.

6. The Final Touches: Revisions and Editing

After completing the first draft, I went through several rounds of revisions and editing to polish the manuscript. I received feedback from beta readers and my expert contacts to ensure that the story was both engaging and accurate before sending it out to my editor. With their invaluable input, I was able to refine “Vendetta” into the thrilling and immersive read it is today.

I hope this behind-the-scenes look into the research process for “Vendetta” has given you a new appreciation for the effort and dedication that goes into writing a political thriller novel. I am incredibly excited for you to experience the world I’ve created, and I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on my latest novel once it’s published.
