My Writing

‘Kafue – The Book of David’ is a fictional story in which, although the places are real, I have not given precedence to the facts, or any particular actual event,. After all, as they say, why let the truth get in the way of a good story. I hope I have managed to write the fiction well enough for it to describe a certain truth, that being of Central Africa.

Today (17 Oct, 2020) I received a printed copy of the 1st draft, which I have mailed to an external editor in New Jersey. The UPS store says it will arrive at her house on 26 October, 2020

I hope to get feedback from the editor on style and flow. Thus depending on this feedback there will probably be more alterations.

…. It is not yet a finished product.

As of now the book has 35 chapters, in addition to a preamble and postscript. It is 121,114 words long, which will take 8 hours,  58 min if read at 225 words per minute.

Also I noted I am getting views from China, hence I have not posted the last few chapters, to thwart (at least for a while) the piracy and theft of intellectual property that is rife in that country.

For those reading on a cell phone, to see the chapters, the menu button on the top right of the screen needs to be pressed.

If anyone would like to give me feedback please send it to:
