WINNING at this year’s edition of the Zimbabwe Achievers Awards — China edition has prompted author and educationist Ashton Bvute (32) to work on another book titled The Road to New Society set to be published next year.

The China-based novelist was declared the Young Achiever of the Year as he had also been nominated for the Cultural Ambassador and Pandemic Heroes award.

Bvute told NewsDay Life & Style that winning the award gave him the energy to work harder.

“Mostly you won’t realise the impact of your work till people, organisations and the community appreciate and reward you. I am so glad and grateful for the people’s support and the award,” he said.

“Scooping the award made me believe in my potential and realise the impact of my work on the Zimbabwean community at large. The recognition energised my zeal and passion to offer more and this pushed me to start working on the book Road to New Society.

Bvute said he dedicated the award to the Zimbabwean community in China as they embraced and believed in his work.

“My homework now is to deliver more and by the first quarter of 2022 The Road to New Society will be out. The book will focus much on the effects of COVID-19 such as how it transformed societies, bringing new norms and behaviour,” he said.

Bvute released his first book The Contested Diamond in March 2020 and Racism or Ignorance published about nine months later that year becoming his second.
