SOUTH AFRICA-BASED Zimbabwean author and cleric, Hosiah Tagara has signed a publishing and distribution deal with an Egyptian publishing company — Future Vision Publishers for his forthcoming books.

Speaking to NewsDay Life & Style, from Egypt, Tagara said as part of the deal, six books to be published next month will be distributed and printed in Arabic.

“I am over the moon considering that it is not easy having an Arab speaking nation appreciate content written in English. I have always believed in breaking into new frontiers and seeing my ideas, convictions and perspectives penetrate new territories, therefore, I welcome this as a great blessing and favour,” he said.

“The deal came after one Egyptian publishing company heard my teachings on recordings and upon learning of my writings, they sought to enter into an agreement to publish my books if I could make them available in Arabic.”

“So, this deal entails the distribution of my books in the Arab-speaking African region and even the Middle East. The six books, which are to be made available in the Egyptian language, are The Market Place Devotional, Unlocking Uncommon Victories In Your Work Environment, The Dominion Masters, Principles of Becoming, Powerthoughts To Enrich Your Life and The Mastered Master.”

Tagara said he mainly wrote self-development books.

“The forthcoming six books are mainly focused on kingdom principles of bringing community transformation and human development through the marketplace,” he said.

“My books open doors to reach more people through my speaking and I am a preacher as well so that is a unique opportunity to reach the Arabic community with the message of the kingdom.”

He added: “The best value is not co-created in similarity, I come from a totally different culture so cross pollinating with that reach is a phenomenal blessing.”
