Journey of a Sister has gone through a transformation!
The First Edition (titled Single, Spiritual…AND Sexual!) was published in 2012, and ended at Year Eleven.
After spending 5 months in Ghana in 2016, I revised my novel, added two new chapters inspired by my stay, and re-titled it Journey of a Sister.
Some of the changes to the Second Edition:
• Writing changed from PAST to PRESENT Tense
• Explained what ‘Fornication’ means
• New Title
• Adding two new chapters (Years Twelve & Thirteen)
In 2018 I spent 4 months in the Gambia and witnessed the same ‘system’ as in Ghana, only this time the ruling religion was Islam. I experienced firsthand how difficult it is for returnees to re-integrate with the locals, who may have escaped the Transatlantic Slave Trade, but had not escaped colonialism.
While in the Gambia I was encouraging my people to ‘Come Home’. My vision was for returnees to put money together to buy land and build a village. Unfortunately, my plans didn’t work out and I subsequently suffered a big ‘CRASH’.
It’s taken me over two years to recover, but while healing I turned my novel into a film script, as it’s always been my ultimate goal to turn my book into a film.
Errol Mcglashan (who helped me edit the First Edition) helped with the script-writing; during the process a lot of the dialogue changed – I even wrote some new scenes! I titled my film script MELANIN TWINS.
I then decided to revise the book to match the film script, and to record it as an audiobook so I could reach even more people with the ancestral messages in the story.
For the Third and final Edition, I changed the front cover design back to my painting ‘Black Butterfly’, as its symbolic of ‘Transformation of the Mind’.
