Petra Aba Asamoah released her second book in Accra titled Jungle Dance which is a novel she describes as a reflection of her corporate journey of almost fifteen years. It captures feelings of despondency, rejection and confusion interlaced with the triumphs, friendship and love that two women experienced in their corporate journeys.
Petra Aba Asamoah is a Marketing Practitioner who has transitioned successfully from a frontline sales role through the middle belt of supervision to the executive level of strategy in sales, marketing management, business development and customer service. She holds a chartered post-graduate diploma in marketing from the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM), UK, an MPhil in Marketing from the University of Ghana Business School and a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science also from the University of Ghana. She is also the author of Sales 101: What everyone needs to know about sales. Jungle Dance is her first full-length fictional book.
Speaking at the launch of the book which was held that the Ghana Academy of Arts and Sciences, Dr Mensa Otabil explained that a nation’s level of civilization is reflected in its arts – “you can check the development of a nation by its artistic expression – in literature, music or the fine arts”.
Charlotte Osei, former Chair of Ghana’s Electoral Commission and NCCE who wrote the foreword to the book remarked “The magic of Jungle Dance for me is that the story is told from the heart and through the voices of women. Being raised in a society that does all it can to hush women, it is important to hear the voices of women”.
The book is available on Amazon and EPP Books (in Ghana).
We applaud Petra Aba Asamoah contributions to the literary space. Keep up the creative works.
