Hot on the heels of the release of the Sapphire Romance series comes a series of chicklit novellas released by Nollybooks, an imprint of MME Media South Africa.
“Bookazines are all about entertaining the reader in a fun way. It’s the closest thing to having a soap opera in your hand,” says MME Media founder Moky Makura of the series aimed at readers aged between 16 and 24 years old.
All the titles are written by young authors and contain educational elements to encourage comprehension and discussion, such as puzzles, quizzes and a mini-dictionary.
The first four titles include: Finding Arizona by Michelle Atagana about a love story between a journalism student and her lecturer; Looking for Mr Right by Cheryl Ntumy about internet dating; Lights, Camera, Love by Bronwyn Desjardins, which takes place on a movie set; and Unfashionably in Love by Sabina Mutangadura about a romance between a fashion intern and her boss.
The objective of Nollybooks, says Makura, is to create content that resonates with young South Africans.
“Africans want to read stories that reflect their lifestyles and aspirations.”
