Teen authors from africa
My character was a typical year-old and he did what most teenagers his age would do. In the past, I probably would have changed the plot for the sake of getting published. But having had my fiction for children published by various publishers on the continent of Africa, I felt the time had come to stand my ground for creative fiction that portrayed society without any air brushing. However, I confess to feeling trepidation for refusing to change the story line — the character un-inebriated would have had implications for the whole plot. The reality of most publishers on the continent and I am talking mainly Anglophone sub-saharan Africa , is that to survive as publishers of fiction, they have to depend on the ministry of education or whichever department funds reading material for school children. That is where the sales are significant enough to make publishing books for children a profitable venture.
