My Christmas in the North

Happy Holidays Gems!

How was your Christmas day? I hope it was bright, sweet and chilled! I got to Kaduna the afternoon of Christmas Eve after a two hours plus drive from Abuja. That evening my parents took me out for ice cream at Havilah Icecream, After Angwarimi in Kaduna North, Kaduna.

BOOKTUBE

I have a new video up on SARF Uncut, my booktube channel. Reading fiction can teach many life lessons apart from sharing a wonderful story. I discuss lessons from my 2018 Reads.

ğŸŽ Make the right choices for yourself based on what you want not society’s wants. (Remember Me by Sophia Kinsella)

Click here to watch me share more life lessons outdoors on my Yola, Law School Campus in Adamawa State, Nigeria.

MY WRITE PAD

Remember Misty? Find out who invoked Sango’s thunder just to hide their tracking of Misty. Don’t miss the Lust Notes and Sunrise Stories I’ve published the past two weeks.

WHAT I AM READING

“Your eyes memorise the hours,

Stretch dry moments into succulent eternities/

You are the fragrance,

Which lends a name to varnished gardens.”

-Tender Moments by Niyi Osundare.

Apart from reading my coursework, I picked up Tender Moments by Niyi Osundare yesterday. It’s a collection of rhythmic, vivid, mushy love poems. For Boxing Day breakfast I ate spicy chicken pepper soup with boiled plantains and the title poem. I look forward to finding other poems I’d love dearly.

Happy holidays!

Steamy Storytime!

Hey Gem!

Episode Two of Steamy Storytime is up on my Booktube Channel.

I read an excerpt from Bantu Knots in this episode. In Bantu Knots, Nkechi’s secret lover is found strangled to death in his apartment. The police rule it a suicide but she isn’t convinced and does her own investigation.

Steamy Storytime is a video series where I read erotica I write under my pen name, Amethyst Saw. Don’t forget to like and subscribe.

Enjoy today!

Bookie In Yola

Peace.

Curled eyelashes fluttered close like delicate butterflies.

Nature dainty in the wind swaying, buzzing, green growing.

Me, 2018, Life’s Lemons and Depth.

I’m at peace with myself as the new continuation of days float in.


Greetings from sunny, chilled Yola! Welcome to December. Please be content, positive and safe this month Gem.

My law school campus is located at Yola South of Adamawa State. Hausa, Pidgin, English are mostly spoken and other Nigerian languages. Fulani people live here and they’re calm, welcoming and humorous. There is electricity and clean, running water all day long. Yola’s weather is unique. Its radiant sun is the ultimate glow filter. The air is dry even with the billowing winds. Giving the weather a sunny, harmattan feel. Daytime is longer here; dawn before 6am and dusk before 7pm. Truly amazing because the sun rises in Lagos around to 7am and sets past 7pm. My body is still trying to adjust.

I’ve spent this week doing my registration and settling in on campus. Lectures commence next week and I’m excited but anxious. I might have a new post schedule for stories and reviews once they commence. I’m really enjoying the serenity. Two white butterflies kissed my fingers on Wednesday. What was your last week of November like?

What I Am Reading

I talk about my November reads here. I’ll still publish reviews of some. You can check out other book reviews here. Catch up on all my published stories in November

This December I want to finish reading some books on my DNF list. Guerrilla Post by Obari Gomba and Kabu Kabu by Nnedi Okorafor. Then start reading new books like Tender Moments by Niyi Osundare(poetry collection), From Caves of Rotten Teeth by A. igoni Barrett(short story collection) and online fiction I discover.

New Booktube Series

I uploaded some videos on my Booktube Channel, SARF Uncut. Steamy Storytime is a short video series where under 10 minutes I read erotic stories I’ve written. Episode 1: Sunny Views of Us is up. Click here to watch it!!

The first two were playful, text videos. But they helped me work on my camera shyness. If you enjoy my videos, like and subscribe Gem.

Don’t forget to breathe and glow!
