In the early part of the year 2020, when the world stood still as a result of the rise of mortality rate caused by the Corona Virus Pandemic, two pals who happened to be roommates conceived an idea.
As the sun crawled on to set, we sat in leisure talking about old times. Then our love for books in our high school days cropped up. What a delight those Pacesetters Novels were. Great stories told by amazing African writers. We immediately decided to buy a few and read again.
Little did we know that it wouldn’t be easy getting them to buy. We were disappointed. How could these fine books by such great writers be difficult to find by the ordinary African reader.
In the heat of our desperation and disappointment, a cord struck. A light flashed through our minds. Our thoughts collided, and that was it. We just knew it, we are the solution. We have the grace and skills required to build a SELF-PUBLISHING PLATFORM. Where our African authors both young and old can publish their books at the most affordable cost on the planet. And readers/buyers can access these books with ease from the comfort of their location through simplest local payment systems.
And now, behold, The largest Self-Publishing Platform in Africa, AfricaRead. Not only Africans are publishing their books on AfricaRead, but authors all across the World.
Our vision is to nurture the next generation of prolific authors and promote the general art of reading and writing.
