As we slowly ease into what I hope will be a joyous holiday season for everyone, I just want to express how grateful I am for having kind and devoted readers like you.
When my debut novel, What Happened to Helen, was released last year December, it became an instant #1 bestseller and, that same week it was named a bestseller, I was thrilled to hear that I was announced as NALSS Choice Award nominee for Best Writer of the year! But I have to admit, the best part of this month has been seeing all the wonderful reviews and comments pouring in on social media from readers from around the world that have enjoyed the book. If you haven’t had a chance to read What Happened to Helen yet, I hope you will soon and that you’ll let me know what you think of it too.
As I’ve shared with you before, one of my favorite pastimes is traveling with friends and family and one of my favorite places to go is Lagos City. My connection to that city helped inspire What Happened to Helen and, with that in mind, my publisher has launched a very special “Ayodeji Ajagbe Winter in Lagos state Sweepstakes” that will provide one lucky reader with a prize package that includes a 2-night stay in Lagos state! I wish only the best of luck to everyone that enters and, if you should end up visiting the city soon, I hope that you will find it to be as magical and inspiring as I do.
With sincere gratitude and warm holiday wishes,
