“Imported Ghanaian” talks about writing and marketing books

The Daily Dispatch is one of the few independent newspapers here in Accra which is known for the quality of its columnists – at least in my opinion.

One of those I try not to miss is Alba Kunadu Sumprim’s “The imported Ghanaian” which usually comes out on Tuesdays.  Not that long ago she wrote a column entitled “So you think you can write?” full of advice to budding authors, much of which was derived from her own experience.

And today, she has followed up with one entitled “The real work starts” which is all about publishing, and more importantly marketing, and actually getting your books sold here in Ghana.

I wish I could find a copy of the column online, but I don’t think there is – at least I haven’t found one.

However, do take a look at Alba’s website, The imported Ghanaian It is pretty bright and lively, and has some of her earlier pieces.   And of course, if you want to continue the discussion, you can always contact her via her website.
