Katucia Moussongo Bitsaka is officially a published author
Twenty-six-year-old (26) Katucia Moussongo Bitsaka, a Vaal University of Technology (VUT), Public Relations, Master’s Degree student never imagined that she’d one day be a published author. Nor did she plan on pursuing a career in writing.
Katucia has published her first book, titled; BLUES – We are all concerned. The book focuses on the effects of depression and rejection. She challenges the societal myth that claims depression as a “stage that will pass”. It’s an illness that needs to be attended to. Through this book, Katucia aims to help the reader overcome rejection, anxiety and depression.
The 35 page, self-published book was Katucia’s way of expressing her thoughts and sharing her experiences with others who are going through depression. “I was often overcome by emotions of sadness and feeling lonely, and I thought it best to express this. After observing my peers, I soon realised that I’m not the only one going through these emotions. It was easier for me to write about my observations and experiences. I realised after a few chapters that I was actually working on a book and then I decided to publish it. I published the book myself, I’m also promoting it myself, however, Reach Publishing assisted me with the editing,” she said.
The book delves into the life of a young girl named “BLUES”, the reader is taken through her life journey and her first experience of rejection – which then leads to a series of events that causes her to go into depression. “I decided to give depression a life-like character, so as to make it easily relatable to the reader. BLUES is a solution to fighting off depression. It takes you through the healing processes and also highlights the importance of faith and prayer,” said Katucia.
BLUES, is Katucia’s first project, it’s currently available as an e-book on Amazon, Kindle, Smash Words and on her website www.katuciamoussongo.com. She is currently working on her second book titled; Women Empowerment. With an online magazine that was launched in August, called “Thoughts on life”, Katucia is proving to be a very busy woman, with a mission to change the world – one book at a time.
I looked around. The sky was blue. I looked and everything seemed blue. I sat and,
as the waves of the sea danced under the melody of the wind, I got lost in my
thoughts and remembered the story of Blues.
Blues was a little girl full of life; shy, but also intelligent. People had difficulty
understanding her due to her quietness. They just did not know how to handle her.
She was kind, and normal in that she was not too hyper. In preschool, her mum
was called regularly, because the teachers would not know how to handle her
“Today, she was quiet https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/741477https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/741477 l'histoire de Blues.*****
Blues était une petite fille pleine de vie; timide, mais aussi intelligente. Les gens avaient des difficultés à
la comprendre en raison de sa tranquillité. Ils ne savaient juste pas comment la gérer.
Elle était gentille, et normale en ce sens qu'elle n'était pas trop hyper de nature . En mate…
I was sitting under the sun and there was something in my heart.
Something hurting me emotionally, something I wanted it to end.
I stood and went to my room to pray and when coming back for my sunbath,
I've decided to do something, I guess it was by inspiration.
I opened my mouth and confessed, proclaimed that the issue in my heart must leave me.
leave my mind, my spirit, soul and whole being.
I confessed, that particular issue was nothing and should go away from me.
I spoke and spoke until my whole being focused on saying that
I believed it with my whole heart
I rejected the opposite thoughts
Minutes later, I was feeling better
The impact of the situation on me was lesser then nothing.
The bible says that curses and blessings are on the tongue
God bless you
J'étais assis sous le soleil et il y avait quelque chose dans mon cœur.
Quelque chose me blessait émotionnellement, quelque chose que je voulais que ça finisse.
Je me suis levée et suis allée dans ma chambre pour prier…
I came across this book relating the life of Mary Stuart Queen of Scottland. It was quite an amazing story, the author really tried to dramatize her last night, the night before her execution by Queen Elizabeth.
It is a must read indeed!
Je suis tombé sur ce livre relatant la vie de Mary Stuart Queen of Scottland. C'était une histoire assez incroyable, l'auteur a vraiment essayé de dramatiser la dernière nuit
, la nuit précédant son exécution par la reine Elizabeth.
C'est un must à lire!
