My novel is titled: Mahogany Butterfly
My novel is titled Mahogany Butterfly and is sort of a coming-of-age story that tells how childhood experiences can manifest throughout life. The African-American female main character is misguided and vulnerable in her relationships. She is raised in a calm southern community by both parents who fight often and has somewhat low self-esteem with a tendency to be self-conscious about her dark skin tone. Having had moments of promiscuity, she earns a scholarship and attends college out of state where she continues the behavior while still being ashamed of herself in knowing she wasn’t raised that way. She makes lots of personal mistakes although she does well academically and later, in her career. While some of the scenes in the novel are erotic and some of the characters use perverse language, this is not the tone of the manuscript.
I attached a picture of the model I would like to use on the cover.
