Now more than ever, writing and publishing a book has never been easier.

With advances in technology, the cost of publishing a book is just a fraction of what it used to be several years ago.

As easy as it is to now publish books, Authors have to do their own marketing. That is the reality of the publishing industry whether you get a publishing deal or you self-publish.

This means before you even write the first word on your book, you need to know how you intend to market and promote your book! If you already have a manuscript or have already published your book it’s not too late.

These days anyone can market globally using just a computer and their time. It may take effort, but it doesn’t need to cost you anything – and you might even enjoy it!

Nigerian Appointed London Police First Black Commander.

Mr. Victor Olisa, a UK-based
Nigerian and a Chief
Superintendent with the London
Metropolitan Police has been
appointed as the first black
commander for Bexley local council in London. “Policing runs in the family and I
have always wanted to be a
police officer and ethnicity does
not affect that,” Olisa told the
Europe Correspondent of the
News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in his reaction on the appointment
in London. Olisa, whose grandfather was a
police officer in Nigeria, said his
focus was on the job rather
than on being the “first
black’’ adding that his ethnicity
never affected the way he carried out his duties. “I consider myself first and
foremost a police officer. If
(being black) is an advantage,
then brilliant; If it’s a
disadvantage, I will have to deal
with that, I can’t hide it.” Olisa said a lot was being done to
address racism within the force,
adding that it was the
responsibility of the force to
correct wrongs and not an
institution for people with racist views. “I am impeccably against anyone
who uses racist language or
behaves in a racist manner. This
will not be allowed under my
watch. “I believe that everyone should
be treated with dignity
wherever they come from,’’
Olisa said. Olisa, 52, born in Warri, Delta, is
one of the three chief
superintendents from black
minority ethnic background
working for the Metropolitan
Police. He started his career in Surrey
Police in 1982 before
transferring to the City of
London Police in 1990 as
detective inspector in the Fraud
Squad. After a spell at the Home Office,
he transferred to the
Metropolitan police in 2006 as a
superintendent in Southwark
Council before his recent

Gunmen kill 4 traders in Yola.

Less than 24 hours after
gunmen attacked muslim
worshippers in Potiskum, another
set of gunmen on a motorcycle
shot dead four traders from the
mainly Christian Igbo ethnic group in north eastern Nigeria
on Monday, residents said. Islamist group Boko Haram has
carried out scores of shootings
and bomb attacks in northern
Nigeria, but it was not
immediately clear who was
behind Monday’s killings in the city of Yola, the capital of
Adamawa state. Police could not be reached for
comment. “Two men riding a motorcycle
came by some shops owned by
Igbo traders,” one resident said. “They shot dead the four men
chatting outside their closed
shops around 3:30 pm. Igbos in
the city had refused to open
their shops in protest over the
killing of a bartender in a beer parlour last night by some
gunmen.” In January, gunmen opened fire
on worshippers at a church in
Yola, killing at least eight people. Boko Haram’s insurgency has
taken more than 1,000 lives
since mid-2009.

I’m Gay And The Head Of Illuminati In Nigeria….Charlie Boy

Controversial maverick
entertainment personality,
Charles Oputa, better known as
Charly Boy, has set another
record with his confession that
he is gay. By so confessing, he becomes only the second publicly
known gay man in Nigeria. This is a record that Pastor
Rowland Macaulay beat him to by
being the first Nigerian to openly
come out and even establish a
church that catered for only
gays. Those who know Charly Boy well however say he’s not
someone who likes being a
follower. He’s always a leader in
everything he does and he’s
now ready to take his rightful
leadership position in the gay world. In an interview with a new
publication, Danfo Express, Charly
Boy declared that he is gay and
not ashamed of being gay. Even as he made other
disclosures about himself, he
didn’t forget to add that he is
the head of the Illuminati in
Nigeria, the same Illuminati that
people accuse Jay-Z, D’Banj and Don Jazzy of being members and
they keep denying membership.
While his audacious revelations
might seem like a publicity stunt
on his part, let’s not forget the
popular saying ‘there’s no smoke with-out fire’. For Charly
Boy to say all these things about
himself there must be an element
of truth in them. As a judge on Nigerian Idol, not
only did he impose himself on
other judges, Yinka Davies and
the American, Jeffrey Daniels, he
was always going with a skull to
the show and once even went with a huge snake that scared
the audience.
