A Cup of Verse
by Emmanuel Osondu
& Elisabeth McGrath
BISAC: Poetry / General
In this beautiful poetry collection, these writers explore political and social history using the classical medium of verse. Both poets also look at the joys and sorrows of life from different perspectives. There are echoes of masters like Machado and Blake in these poems. There are also the influences of Okigbo and Dennis Brutus, but the individual styles of these poets ring out like a metal gong.
The themes in this book run the gamut of love, hope, grief, loss, peace and war. There are also familiar leitmotifs in the pages of this moving poetry collection. Open the pages and enjoy the experience of two writers from different backgrounds who have found common ground in poetry.

by Donna Yates
BISAC: Fiction / General

Each story deals with the importance of being true to one's own system of values, whether that system speaks of love, life, or anything that may fall in between. We all face those moments when we must decide, before we take action, to either listen to our hearts or ignore what we know to be right. "Lessons Learned" is about making those decisions and living with the consequences of actions taken based upon them. sometimes the consequences of our actions are fulfilling, sad, and sometimes downright funny. When we are willing to open our eyes to all that life has to offer, how can we NOT learn from life's lessons?

Boko Haram: Between Myth and Reality: Breaking the Silence in Nigeria
by N. I. O. & D. L-B
BISAC: Political Science / Political Freedom & Security / Terrorism
This book about Nigeria and the nightmare it is currently facing was written by two people. One of them lives in Nigeria and the other lives in the US. The Nigerian writer lives in northern Nigeria so he/she cannot dare use his /her real name. These two writers have chosen to break the silence, risk their own safety, and tell the story of the power of Boko Haram.
In the core Muslim states of Nigeria, opinions are deeply divided about Boko Haram. Some Muslim northerners have a grudging admiration for Boko Haram. To this group of people, the BH sect is a perfect solution to the scandalous corruption and maladministration afflicting the land. Another group in the Muslim north sees BH as a disgrace to Islam. This group believes that the members of BH are renegades who have gone against the teachings of the prophet Muhammad (PBUH). The way this group sees it, the BH members are giving Islam a bad name because they are killing fellow Muslims and they are contributing to the poverty and lack of meaningful development in the north.
Is Boko Haram committed to the teachings of the prophet Muhammad (PBUH) or is it an organization of renegades? Do these people have a mission or are they just misguided religious extremists? Does Boko Haram have connections to Al Queda and Al Shabab in Sudan? Can they actually win the battle against Nigerian security forces or will they be wiped out by the state? These questions and many more need to be answered. This is why the writers have chosen to speak out and publish this book. There is a message here for the other Muslims living in northern Nigeria. The good Muslims in Nigeria and other parts of the world can help by resisting those who are bent on demonizing Islam. Speak out, expose these bad people and the world will be a much better place for us all.
