Today ends the week long celebration of the 2nd Anniversary of my first book, The Mistreatment of Zora Langston. I wanted to share something very personal that happened during the planning stages of the book cover.
My graphic artist, Monica Gibbs drew the picture of Zora and sent it to me for approval. A little know fact is that there were some changes made, but when I looked at the draft of her I thought Zora bared an uncanny resemblance to my mom. I marveled at this and showed it only to my husband, trying to think of a way to explain it. You see, Monica and I met online and she had never seen my mom so I was at a loss to explain how this could happen. I still can’t explain it so I will leave that alone.
With Monica’s permission, I am including the pics of ‘work in progress Zora’ and my mom back in the day when she was in her twenties. You tell me what you think. Does Zora really look like my mom or is it just me? Leave me a comment and let me know.

Ok so our world is going crazy with hate and discrimination. We all need to take a break and have fun for a minute or two and Missy Elliot is just the artist to provide this distraction. Here is her latest creation “I’m Better”. I hope you take a couple of minutes to enjoy this visual masterpiece and while you’re at it shake that thang for a couple of secs too. I won’t tell anybody 😉
I have decided to start a new feature on my blog called ‘Indie Shine’. This will begin in February 2017!
The purpose is to shine a spotlight on individual indie artists. It doesn’t matter what your chosen field is as long as you are indie and an artist.
I have received responses so get yours in today. Space is limited, as this is only a monthly feature.
Go to https://rebirthoflisa.wordpress.com & complete contact me form. I will respond with detailed information and a questionnaire. Once I receive the completed questionnaire, I will let you know when your feature will post.
