    Go girl. Proud of you! I have placed this book on hold at my local library. I think people are really interested in reading it. For example, I am #21 on the queue for this book at my local library. I downloaded a free excerpt from her website (after watching her on Good Morning America) and I noticed that the book is spiritual somehow, so I’m not sure if I will let my kids read but I am sure going to read. There are lots of deities including Sango, Yemoja, etc., and I am not sure I know how to explain those to my children. I am noticing that the world is now embracing books/movies on African mythologies as science fiction. All those scary juju books and movies we had those days (e..g., Fagunwa’s Ogboju Ode ninu Igbo Irumole and Fadeyi Oloro and Jimoh Aliu movies) will pass as science fiction for oyinbos :). But really, I think that the line between Afro-spiritualism and science fiction is blurry.

      I don’t find it blurry at all. If we (not saying you specifically) can ready or watch Harry Potter or even any Disney film with magic, then we can also watch and read our own contents and not demonize them as evil

    This book is in court for copyright infringement. It should not be shown till the court case is over.

    This book is in court for copyright infringements. The editor should ask questions before all these exposure.

    It’s all online with another writer, to say who copied whose book. I find it strange that Bellanaija is not following current events with the standard they say they have
