Book Reviews

Many customers visiting bookshops attribute their reluctance in buying and reading African authored books to low publishing and production standards. Well, many authors are now improving their books so you can enjoy the great reads.

The cost of producing coloured children’s books is very high. In addition to the normal publishing costs and time, children’s books’ authors require illustrations and full colour printing. Good quality is coming from Africa…

A memoir is a historical account or biography written from personal knowledge. Writing one can be an uphill task because of the emotional investment required and the vulnerability needed to share life’s experiences for others to learn from.

Every skill and life experience we go through is an opportunity for us to learn, first for ourselves and then to share with humanity. That is what an author’s journey is and everyone has one to share with the world once you master the courage to do so… Well done to those who have gone ahead to author and share.

    To say thank you is an understatement to what the team at CLC is doing for us. Honestly am very very humbled and grateful for the sacrifice that the team has made.

    These are things we would be paying for with hefty amounts but look what God has done!!!!!!

    Thank you Muthoni, Jackie, Dominic and the whole team. Am so grateful.

    May God reward you abundantly

  • Dora Okuja January 30, 2023

    So when you see people commenting about the feedback sessions, you might think it’s all hype. It isn’t. Thank you for taking the time to get judges to review the book and critiquing even the style of writing. It is rare to find this, and I count myself privileged to have this opportunity.
    Thank you CLC, ACABA and the judges.

  • LucyAnne Waweru January 26, 2023

    CLC Kenya and the entire review team thank you so much for that great feedback. That’s the stuff that grows authors. My authorship will never be the same. Thank you for your sacrifice and a job well done.

  • Jane Wangeci January 26, 2023

    I can’t thank you enough for the eye opening session that we had. It’s amazing how you and the entire judges team went line by line through my poetryπŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ₯° and found the content to be awesome stuff.
    I look forward to more collaborations, sharing and ultimately improved versions of the write ups coming up. πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰

    I am grateful that through this platform, I know what to expect as output. Let’s shine ❀

    I look forward to more of these sessions. The book review was Amazing and I hope I can hear more of this.
    We can only grow if we are challenged. I pray for more grace this year and I hope we can grow together.

  • Elizabeth Waithaka January 23, 2023

    This is to honestly thank Jackline Ingasian and Muthoni Omukhango for taking the time to provide 2022 nominees Judges feedback. It is not only enlightening and inspiring but it is also very encouraging. Having someone critique my books is the best thing that happened to me on this Journey. My authorship Journey has been lonely. Of course the holy spirit has been a very close companion but apart from that, I did not have anyone to ask or talk to about it. I longed for someone who would read my work even a chapter or a page and provide insights but there was none. The ACABA program is God sent! We appreciate the CLC team, the Judges and all involved. I definitely need my next book into the program.

    The Lord bless you and keep you. May he be gracious to you. May he look upon you with favour and give you peace. ShalomπŸ™πŸ½

    For any Author who have not booked your sessions, please run for it. The feedback especially the negative part is very necessaryπŸ˜…

    I strongly feel we got more than we paid for in this program. The ACABA team have done much more than especially expected. This can only be a Ministry with a lot of divine grace. More grace team! Keep it up and moving!

    Thank you soo much team for the feedback you gave me yesterday in regards to my nominated book EVERY DAY WARRIORS. Thank you for updating me on all the reasons that made me a runners up, they were truly remarkable and as author I was honoured by the judges thoughts abt my book.
    Also the areas I can improve on. Quite honestly the impact and feedback will be felt in my future books. Most of the time, you don’t get real feedback from readers and am grateful for this platforms that are geared towards building authors to be better and to set international standards in writing. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
