Hey all....just wanted to share my new book cover with you!

It's DOOR OF KUSH's doing, but it's growing on me.

The book goes into production on MONDAY the 28th and will be released January 24th.




Diary of a Lost Girl


If you plan to order it...please buy it on this site (aalbc.com) at this link:

READ THE FIRST TWO CHAPTERS

Book Description

Kola Boof's long awaited autobiography "Diary of a Lost Girl" is nothing less than magnificent. Many will be spellbound by more than 90 pages detailing her terrifying experience as Osama Bin Laden's former mistress, but the Sudanese-born Novelist/Poet writes even more profoundly about the hardships of being vaginally circumcised, about witnessing her birth parents killed in her presence as a small child, about slavery and Arabism in Sudan, about being adopted and raised in the U.S. by African Americans, about her quest for true love, and in one particularly daring chapter, about her hopes for the future of her sons.
Add to that years of psychiatric treatment, a struggle with manic anger and quite a few daring romances other than Bin Laden and you've got the perfect ingredients for a feature film.

Critically acclaimed for her powerful novels "Flesh and the Devil", "Pure Nigger Evil" and the classic short story collection, "Long Train to the Redeeming Sin"...I'm now convinced that there's no way Kola Boof could ever create a fictional character in one of her novels that is more glamorous, sad, enigmatic and intriguing than she herself is in real life.

Readers will find themselves fascinated as innocent young Naima Bint Harith tragically becomes the vitriolic complicated temptress Kola. A doomed movie starlet, feminist activist and "kept woman"...who ultimately emerges as the loving mother, outspoken novelist/poet and professional cook that we know today as Kola Boof.

Throughout the book, Kola speaks in a voice so utterly naked, truthful and unpretentious that it's impossible not to fall in love with her.

"Diary of a Lost Girl" is a powerful autobiography that you won't soon forget.

--Kurt Rampling (editor)






This book...is THE SHIT! I ain't worried. :-)

If you have any say in this matter, I think you should choose one design or the other--not both. I happen to like the butterfly.

Kola,

I couldn't read all of it.. but now I understand why so many AAs (women, and perhaps men, as well) are so jealous of you....

You have a history; therefore a present... and a future.... I'm sure you understand where I'm coming from.

Keep movin'; ignore.. Stay Strong.

Do you have Kola confused with Oprah? Why should anybody settle for being jealous of Kola when it's so easy to envy rich, famous, esteemed Oprah - who has it ALL! She's certainly who I'd trade places with.

Thanks, Tonya.

It's very sad.

I don't understand....why can't they see that where I come from is where they come from?

We are the same people. I look just like Black American women.

But they have seriously stupid attitude problems with EACH OTHER, so I try to be supportive and loving, no matter what.

A lot of black women know that I am trying to use my background to help highlight a different image of black women---which is why the media has hated me so much.

We need MANY DIFFERENT "new" images of ourselves as Black women, and our struggle as black women is GLOBAL. But the AA women are the only ones who don't want to see themselves as connected to Third World and African women.

Definitely not all, but many.

There's enormous POWER and "perspective" that AA women could get from my autobiography.

I so wish my life were interesting enough to write about. But it isn't. Heck, I've never even lived alone, never traveled ...


*sigh.

Envy, perhaps.

Trade places? No way.

I'd trade back accounts, that's about it.
