The story "WATERLOO" I co- authoured with my friend was rejected by Heneimann Book Publisher at Jericho, Ibadan. The word counts were about forty eight thousands

I was told that the book was fictional, therefore, they did not know if it would be well sold or not. They told me that they are profit-oriented organisation

However, they advised me to do personal publishing (printing like 5 copies or more) and enlist it at the national library for book review, in which the publishing can be financed by the federal govt or I should give it to mushroom publishers.
