2014 is here and in our continual striving to “Tell our own Stories“, we, Kachifo Limited, publishers of the Farafina imprint of books, announce the start of a new era in our history: the launch of two new imprints.
Nigerian genre fiction will see a renaissance in the coming years and Kachifo Limited is poised to be a leader in this field. From the early years, Kachifo Limited has been interested in getting these kinds of stories to our people. Eghosa Imasuen’s first novel, To Saint Patrick (2008) then published under the Farafina imprint, was a crime, police-procedural, that played with the tropes of the Alternate History genre. Stories like this will be well represented here. As will Romance, Mystery, Thrillers, and Scifi/Fantasy novels and short stories. They will be released in hard copy and eBook format.
We have spent the last few months silently acquiring these stories. The first of these books are slated for release in Early April, at the start of the second quarter of 2014.
Ever wanted to read books that covered the lifestyles of Nigerians? Ever wanted a fresh look at your celebrities and opinion formers and makers? What about a collection of essays that is not stuffy or overly self-important? And that recipe you have always wanted, wouldn’t you like to see this in a book, well-packaged, beautifully illustrated, and with measurements in figures you can understand? Then Kamsi Books is the place to come to. Kamsi Books is Kachifo’s new lifestyle imprint and will be focused on bringing creative non-fiction, celebrity memoirs, lifestyle books, cooking books, travel books, etc, to the reading public. We know you will enjoy the first of our entries, which are expected to hit the bookshops, and eBook vendors by March of 2014.
Kachifo Limited is always looking for new voices. Please keep on sending your queries for publications and your writing samples to email@example.com.
