Popular fiction author, Dr Ike Tandoh, will soon launch a digital version of all his 27 published moral fiction stories.

The novels will be available on the Google Play Store for download.

According to the award-winning author, the idea behind going digital is to make the books easily available for readers worldwide.

In Dr Tandoh’s estimation, it is high time Ghanaian authors took their work to another level by showcasing them to the world.

It was very unfortunate, he said, that the Ghanaian writer has been neglected by policymakers, thus, stifling their talent.

Dr Tandoh said the lack of support for writers by the government is causing a serious disservice to Ghanaian readers.

“It’s no wonder schoolchildren are not interested in reading now because authors are not writing due to so many challenges they face”, he argued.

Dr Tandoh said to improve literacy, and for the government’s agenda of educating the masses through the implementation of the Free SHS to materialise, attention must be placed on reading and writing, hence the government must support local Ghanaian authors.

Going digital with his books, he said, will distract the youth from wasting their time and resources searching for and downloading pornography and soap operas on their phones and tablets.

He has, therefore, encouraged parents to patronise his books on Google Play Store when launched in 2019, so they can make useful investments in their children’s education.

Dr Tandoh said going digital will help defeat the long-held perception that if you want to hide anything valuable from the African, all you need to do is put it in a book.

“The youth must cultivate the habit of reading since is it the best investment they can make for themselves”, Dr Tandoh said.

Dr Tandoh published his first book “Dear mama why so soon?” in 1999 and has since published best-selling novels like “I told you so”, “Friends”, “A call to heaven”, “The dying hero”, among many others.
