Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
My name is Kelechi Agu. I’m a Nigerian Author of creative, fictional books. I’ve published four books. The Gauntlet of Feona.
The War of Two Realms.
The First Decenary and
The Russian Connection.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
I’m currently working on a series called Phaser. I’ve finished writing the first book, titled “The Gaian Revelations.” Growing up, I was both a Trekkie and a Star Wars fan… especially Star Wars. I have always loved the idea of deep space inhabitation and the potential political, social and possibly metaphysical dynamics such an existence brings. That’s what I explore with Phaser.
I’m also working on the third installment of my Curse of The Seventh Sword Series, after The Gauntlet of Feona, and The War of Two Realms. It doesn’t have a title yet. I’ll think of one soon 🙂
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I can’t sit and write. LOL. I have to lay down on my tummy, prop a pillow under my jaw and then type away at my laptop. I know it is terrible posture but somehow, the picture is clearer like this. I guess it is unusual.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
James Hadley Chase
What are you working on now?
Phaser and the third installment of The Curse of The Seventh Sword series.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I’m still figuring this out. However, I do find that connecting with my readers on a personal note helps. It is fun for me to talk to my readers about my books, answer their questions and listen to their ideas. It is genuine and uplifting. It also has the benefit of promoting my books.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Whatever you do, don’t.stop.writing.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
What are you reading now?
There’s a lovely story on Wattpad called The Tendrils of Fate. What makes this book so wonderful, apart from its breathtaking world building, gripping plot and memorable characters, is that it is written by two authors. A collaboration. That is never easy. If you want to check it out, this is the link.
What’s next for you as a writer?
Well… Keep writing.
