On Sunday, 26th of January 2014, NS Publishing Limited in collaboration with the British Council launched 14 of their branded Naija Stories fiction books into the market. Published over the past two months, 10 of the books are collections of short stories from the highly popular website, www.naijastories.com, and the other four are Myne Whitman’s best selling romance novels, A Heart to Mend and A Love Rekindled, repackaged for the Nigerian audience.
The launch of the 14 titles is the first step in the efforts of NS Publishing, which began operations in December 2013, to make reading fun, accessible, and affordable to average Nigerians. NS Publishing is dedicated to developing and distributing Nigerian literary content through paperbacks, e-books, apps and audio through channels and at costs within the reach of ordinary Nigerians. We believe that by nurturing writers and readers, we will contribute to the development of engaged, empowered and educated Nigerians.
Naija Stories is the premier imprint of NS Publishing Ltd, and originated from their experience sharing stories online.
