”Shades of Winter”: To Love, or Not to Love


Tacoma, WA (PRWEB) September 15, 2014

When real love finds you at the wrong time, do you pursue it or let it pass you by? The question of right and wrong is difficult when matters of the heart are involved.

Author John Wesley Anderson, Jr. explores the lives of five people trying to pursue love and happiness, in his new book “Shades of Winter.” Conflict begins when each character is faced with complex decisions that often include maintaining their marriage vows.

“This is a morally puzzling romance that tugs on the heart of readers in ways they have hopefully never felt before,” Anderson said.

Love can happen when we least expect it, but loving one’s self before truly loving another is important. Anderson’s characters struggle with accepting their imperfections, which impacts their lives and the relationships around them.

“As an observant student of life, I felt the need to explore the grey areas of our existence that real love creates,” Anderson said.

Key Findings

Pyramid Research expects mobile-money transactions to continue to become more common across the continent.

We believe the key to growth will be an increase in the interoperability of payment systems offered by providers. The combination of mobile money and mobile commerce has the potential to dramatically alter the way commercial transactions are completed in Africa.

Improvements in mobile connectivity are increasing the number of potential shoppers online across Sub-Saharan Africa, but the mobile-money infrastructure remains a constraint for the industry.

Synopsis

This report first outlines the current structure of the m-commerce industry in Sub-Saharan Africa. It looks at two types of m-commerce transactions, distinguishing between transactions completed on a mobile phone and purchases of goods or services using mobile money.

The section on product identification looks at the way companies in Africa are able to target consumers based on a set of criteria revealed through the online content viewed on their mobile phones.

The second part of the report investigates the existing mobile-payment infrastructures in Kenya and Tanzania. It highlights the differences between the two systems and the potential for a payment platform targeting enterprises.

The infrastructure deficit, both domestic and international, is a key cost to African companies looking to set up an m-commerce platform. The third section explores why companies have located in certain countries.

The report also focuses on the interaction between companies and consumers, providing an understanding of the existing and potential relationships between the two.
