Hope in a time of isolation

Hello, <<First Name>>.

The last time I wrote to you, 2020 was so full of promise. We had great plans for our new decades. We talked goals and how to tackle them. I even fed you with a quote from Edith Lovejoy Pierce: "The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day."

In retrospect: LOL. What's that thing they say about man proposes again?

This year is turning out to be very much unlike any other. The current global upheaval is manifesting in various ways in our lives--some more dire than others--and we're all dealing with it as best as we can. For me, one way was to take some time away from, well, everything. (I was also finishing up the first draft of THE NAMELESS REPUBLIC #1, but that's talk for later). Hence, my prolonged absence from your inbox.

But as of today, no more. We can only hunker down for so long, and I, for one, have decided to keep my head up--for me, and for you. So consider this rebounding letter as one of hope, a reach across the divide of physical distancing and isolation. Together, we can pull through. Together, we will.


New and notable since January

Whew. So many things have happened since my last letter, but I'll give you a quick rundown of the most important.
The Nameless Republic #1

Finished! Done! Submitted! My editor and I are talking cover designs now, so if there's a cover release soon, you'll be hearing about it first!

I started a video recommendation series where I offer "writing lessons, applied to life." The latest discusses Dealing With Isolation. You can watch it (and all others) here.
Suyi's Street Squad on Facebook

I started a very private, exclusive Facebook group called Suyi's Street Squad. This is for the top 1% supporters of my work. They get special perks like advance copies, book swag, giveaways and some special opportunities to collaborate with me in developing, announcing and generally partaking in my work.

And guess what? Anyone can join. Simply apply here to see all the perks (and rules).
Mytek The Mighty in development

Remember when I said I was writing a comic for 2000AD? Well, the Mytek script is now done. The issue cover (which you can preview here) is already out. The artist has begun work (you can see some storyboards, synopsis and character art if you join the street squad).

Who's excited to see a robot resurrected by a Nigerian professor and a Ghanaian-American billionaire come July? I am!

Remember, you can sign up for this newsletter (if you haven't already), share it with your friends (links below), or just reply to this email and say hi. I'm always happy to hear from you.

Ọkhionwiẹ! (See you around!)

- Suyi.
