"Oke Okpa Mbaise" Joins the Sungai Publishing Family


Princeton, NJ/Owerri, Nigeria, August 1. 2017:  The international publishing house of Sungai Books is proud to announce that it has reached agreements to publish several works (non-fiction and fiction) by Professor M A C Odu. A well-known, charismatic intellectual and real estate professional, Professor Odu has been an acclaimed realtor and appraiser in the real estate and building construction field, with extensive experience in Oil Valuations, Urban Real Estate Development Studies and Farm Valuations. He is a Fellow of the Nigerian Institution of Estate Surveyors and Valuers and a leading proponent of the "Cooperative Paradigm for Rural Development." Odu's teaching experience includes stints at institutions such as the University of Lagos (Senior Lecturer and Acting Head of Department), the University of Nigeria Nsukka (Visiting Lecturer), and Imo State University (Adjunct pioneer establishment faculty). 

The first work to be published within the next 12 months will be the author's enigmatic autobiography, tentatively titled Spring in Hell. The work will have four segments or parts titled Foundations of a Life, Afternoon of a Life, Evening of a Life, and Photographs of significant people and events in the author's life. The book is expected to be released by the end of the Rainy Season in 2018. A public presentation and launching will herald the publication. Odu was a memorable participant in the launching of Eze S.N. Ugorji's autobiography in Owerri on May 27, 2017. The book, titled "Truth is Life," was published by Sungai Books and released globally.

After the publication of Odu's autobiography, Sungai Books shall proceed to release his works of fiction. The works are tentatively titled "Connection," "Motivated Women," "Mazeli," and a movie script titled "Tears of the Fathers." The author also has a collection of essays on the Nigerian journey to nationhood tentatively titled "Indelible Notes."

According to Odu, he likes "the quality of works published by Sungai Books and the ethical standard and consciousness of its publisher. I am proud to be associated with Sungai Books." He added that "if you do for my works what you did for your father's, I will be very happy." Central to Odu's agreement with Sungai Books is his desire to have the books printed in Nigeria in order to benefit the Nigerian economy, an ethos the publisher shares.

Founded in 1993, Sungai Books is an international book imprint that is based in Nigeria and the United States of America. The award-winning publishing house is Africa-centered, with a global reach. Those who have published with the house include Professor Chudi Uwazurike, Sen.

Ugorji, Professor Sunday Nnanta Nwosu, and Ambassador Austin Okwu, to mention only a few.
