How can I explain abandonment to an infant? How can I talk to the died about accepting life responsibilities? How does one chase a phantom? You can’t? My real father was a rolling stone who I had no reason to hate. Someone from what I overheard as a child was a blessing to lose. Someone that seem like a coward and what have killed the woman blooming for the rock.
This is just an update which is done at the end of every month. I know that I’ve been traveling a lot and have not been following the schedule for the blog. And I apologizes to everyone that had been with me and continue to read my blog. I have had one set back after another with the SellingKatenna brand. I wish I could say that everything is fix and that I’m ready to launch the brand and products. Everything that could go wrong did go wrong. So now I’m working on what I got to start with because the show must go on. I thank everyone for their patients and continuous faith in the SellingKatenna brand. Even though my team and I have a lot of setback we are now moving forward. We were able to get the old website address back and will be setting up the e-commerce site soon. Other than staying focus on the brand I had to put my next book on the back burner until everything is done. So just know that everything is coming soon.
As always Fam Stay Blessed
The front of my book cover is the naked back of a woman baring it all. I want to say that it’s done tastefully but I really can say that. Tasteful is an opinion and to each they’re own. My book came from a place that was bare. It came from the inner me, the me that could not come out until now. I misplace myself in this life. I had to kill off part of me that just wanted to obey society. The part that would not cause trouble and just accept my life however it may be. Then the part of me that could not live like this any longer took over. So before I knew it I was dyeing my hair red and writing my second book. I could tell you trust me when it come out will be something to really talk about. That’s another story for another time but the naked thing is kind a like opening a closet. People that would like to buy the book look and say is it about sex or what. I could say no but that would be a lie. Other say it’s not spiritual is it and answering no again would be another lie. So you mean to tell me that you put God and sin in one book. Yeah I kinda did but you read a book that also did that. And then they say what that book would be because I only read the Holy Bible. I don’t know what you’re reading but the Holy Bible does put the two together unless you’re skipping over those parts. I’m not here to debate the Bible so let’s just get back to my book. I didn’t do the book cover like this so that I could sell books. Or ever name the company Selling Katenna for that same reason. One I already have a post on why I name the company and the book their names so if you want to know go back to that post. Moving on the naked woman on the cover, I had a struggle within myself to know if I was really going to do that. The fight was so strong that I at the last minute change the book cover twice. That woman may or may not be me but that is not in question also that’s something I not going to answer. The question that is on everyone mind is why is there a naked woman on the cover. All I can say is that as an artist my creative side wouldn’t let me do it no other way. If you look closely that piece was done using the title of the book. Yes the whole piece is nothing but words. Some would ask why I chose that position. I could tell you the true that not only is she not ready to face the world but also she turn her back on society. I realize that this book was baring my soul and accepting my faith so that’s why she naked. That why she turn to you showing everyone her back and backside. I want people to understand that again I write from the heart as all artist do. I had to accept that I could never go with anyone flow. So buy it for the words or buy it for the cover or don’t buy it at all. Either way I have to be unapologetic about my creativity. My life is an open book that was just publish so whether you’re on this flight or not we’re in different seat and we may not sit together either way.
I was asked “What do you do for a living?’
Why does this reply has everyone looking at me like I don’t have a job? When I say I’m working everyone think I need help. Like the reply was just a cover up for unemployed. Like I’m ashamed to say I don’t have a job.
I’m working leave everyone guessing at what. And for what?
So when I’m busy working. I’m multiple things at any giving time and the hardest thing for me is applying one thing to myself. I’m a writer, an artist, a designer, a creator, a poet, a collector, and those are just the job I do daily.
Don’t forget the account, the researcher, the lawyer at time, the doctor, and those are the jobs I don’t get paid for when I help others.
So I’m working leave everyone but me think it’s easy.
Working on me, working for me, working for others, working in the world. Just working like crazy. Doing any and everything to earn. Whether it’s money, experience, or favors. I get the job done.
And at the end of the day I’m working cover so little but do so much.
