Ancient Cameroonian Code of Ethics Passed On in an Xlibris Release

Share Article

Rich Melcher’s young-adult fiction is a morally uplifting read.

Xlibris, the self-publishing services provider, announced today the release of A Work In Progress. Authored by Rich Melcher, this book tells how two teenage boys learned the ancient Cameroonian “code of ethics” passed on through many generations—the code to self-discovery.

In this young-adult fiction, readers will meet Kuna Bezankeng and Dametrie Jones. Study-geeks, the boys find pleasure in studying together most evenings. Kuna was of Cameroonian descent and lived near Dametrie, whose parents were both African-American.

One night in Kuna’s home, the boys decided to shoot some indoor hoops after studying algebra. They crumpled blank sheets of paper and found a strange woven basket, which Kuna had never before seen. It became their new basketball hoop. It took a short while before either of them could get one shot in, but when Kuna finally did it, a surprising vision manifested.

A mysterious purple glow splashed brightly on the corner walls, and the crumpled paper – which was blank – now had something scribbled in Cameroonian. Grandma Fusa, Kuna’s insightful and spiritually gifted grandmother, was the only one present who would have any idea what the note meant. What could this note be?

Melcher invites readers to join Kuna and Dametrie in their adventures in pursuing the ancient Cameroonian “code of ethics,” which ultimately helped them become the kind of men they were meant to be. An insightful and morally uplifting book, A Work In Progress passes on important values which everyone can learn and practice.
