Literature is an awesome way to communicate and share feelings, and as well pass history. African literature is no exception, and in this case books. That’s is why Country Tales is trying to the platform to uphold the heritage of African literature.
Over the years, Amazon has crowned itself as the number one means of selling books online. Though there are a few others finding their feet on the market. Whilst the market is gradually booming, there seem not to be a platform for, especially, the story-telling African writers.
Well, Country Tales is here to change the story. Country Tale is here to give the world a better story in online publishing as far as African writers are concerned.

Who is Country Tales?
Country Tales is a start-up poised to creating a register of purely African literature, encompassing diverse genres.
This startup promises to debut African writers who don’t have any platform to present their works to the world. Country Tales trusts that showing their works to the world will help them improve. Thus, this will gradually help drive them to become the authors they dreamt to be.
This is definitely good news for any writer, especially the young ones we have in our age.
Courage Elikem Agamah, the founder of Country Tales, explains the reason behind his wonderful initiative.
“New writers in Africa face major challenges when it comes to showcasing themselves and their works to a larger audience of readers. As a result, they litter their writings on Internet forums, social media, and even in the comment sections of websites that commanded great traffic. Upon thorough research, we found the stumbling block to be the unavailability of a platform that seeks to address their needs. To solve this problem, we developed this platform that not only helps them to gain traction and popularity, but also offer them other free services such as proofreading, cover art designs for each literature they choose to publish on our platform, and promoting their works for free.”
Indeed a wonderful place
Standardised barcodes are generated for the books as writers upload them to the site. These unique codes will allow people to search for the books and related content.
Country Tales also offer services such as proofreading, cover art design, publishing and promoting writers’ pieces.
People with keen taste for African literature will find it a wonderful place to enjoy their favourite literature genres.
All the young writers trying to share their ideas, experiences and feelings to the arm of literature, we suggested you give Country Tales a try.
