Book Launch Event – Abiku: A Battle Of Gods
Segilola Publishing is thrilled to announce the release of paranormal erotic romance Abiku: A Battle Of Gods by Elizabeth Salawu in paperback. This is a fantastic epic adventure that is bound to leave the reader with sweaty palms and racing hearts.
To celebrate the release, Segilola Publishing is hosting a book launch event on Friday the 9th of December 2016 at the prestigious Park Plaza Hotel, London Victoria. This luxurious event features a stage play, fashion show, male candy auction, concert and dinner.
Come celebrate African fiction at its finest with surprise celebrity guest appearances, VIP 3 course meal prepared by a Michelin star chef. This is a MUST ATTEND luxury event.
Abiku: A Battle Of Gods follows Dayo, the only child of her parents.
She was called an Abiku, an evil spirit sent to this world to lure men to their doom.
Dayo is a bi-racial twenty something year old with a German mom and a Nigerian dad. She has a semi bougie lifestyle, always jetting across the pond between Africa and Europe.
She starts dating her father’s driver in secret after seducing him.
On her return from her cousin’s 21st birthday in Manchester, she tries gbana for the first time. She finds herself in an alternate realm and thinks she’s hallucinating from using gbana, an illegal drug. She doesn’t take anything that happens there seriously as she thinks she’s having a vivid dream. That is until she couldn’t wake up from getting married to a ‘man’ she met in that realm . . .
Free Entry -Entry to the Park Plaza Hotel is free
VIP Dinner – Everyone at the book launch event is a VIP.
