Answering your questions

Dear Supporters,


The Triumph of Evil will be officially launched on 5 August. It has been a long journey and I am profoundly grateful for your support. Many Many Thanks!


I hope you will enjoy the way the story has been written. The writing went through many iterations. The different drafts benefited from various editorial inputs, and I have acknowledged this critical support at the end of the book. Having said this, the one contribution that I cannot highlight enough is that of my collaborator Spike. His artwork is remarkable, and I am sure you will agree that it takes this story to another level. 


This tale has taken a long time to write. In part because it is still live. An investigation has been opened in a French court and it is running its course. It was initiated by a collective of survivors who live in France, Collectif des Parties Civiles pour le Rwanda (CPCR). A portion of the receipts of the sale of The Triumph of Evil will be used to support the work of CPCR. 


I could go on, but I risk repeating much of what you will discover in the book you have supported. Unbound has proposed a novel form of engagement between us. Were you to share the questions you have regarding The Triumph of Evil, I (and possibly Spike) would happily answer them in a video message to be released on 5 August. It would be great if the questions could be received by Monday 2 August. Please forward them to


Again many many thanks for your support!
