Jola Naibi

Writer and amateur photog. I seek to inspire and inform with the words I write and share and the photos I take. I have written a book of short stories: Terra Cotta Beauty, and I am working on a lot more. Reading and writing fuel my energy. In reading, I explore this vast and diverse world, in writing, I employ my over-active imagination and address the 'what-if' questions that life often throws at us.


Coming Soon to A Blog Near You: The Terra Cotta Beauty Virtual Book Tour

By on October 16, 2014

So one of the hardest things so far since the book got released has been promoting it. I have a very busy full time personal and work schedule and going on a multi-city book tour (as excitedly appealing as it sounds) is just not in the horizon for the time being. But still, I wanted to keep the momentum of the book’s release going so that it did not fall off people’s radar, plus, I thought more people would enjoy reading the stories in the book. Enter the Virtual Book Tour. The beauty of the internet is that everyone is connected via one device or the other. While such a concept has its numerous cons – think identity theft, etc, there are a number of pros in today’s virtually virtual world and I have stepped into one of them. Starting next Monday, I will be embarking on an exhilarating multi-blog book tour. My friends at The Book Pound were gracious enough to start off with a preview of what to expect by publishing an interview on their blog. The tour will focus on  writing, blogging and Terra Cotta Beauty. See below for the dates and the blog stops.

Special thanks and big shout out to my friend and fellow author, Nike Campbell-Fatoki for suggesting the virtual book tour. Whenever I think of you, the song Lean on Me plays in my head.
