FREE- Mystical Forest KINDLE Edition

Standard

Dear Friends,

Boy Have I been busy! I apologize for not keeping you up dated…I have been working on book three Chasing Butterflies in the Unseen Universe. I’ll have to admit it is coming a long quite nicely. I have been challenging myself with more layered story and time hopping.

This coming month is a special month for me. It is kind of symbolic I suppose. April of 2013 is when I wrote my first draft manuscript. I wrote my first story! Chasing Butterflies in the Magical Garden  of course it wasn’t published until November 2013 but it was the first of many stories I have living in my head, now put onto paper. So to celebrate I wanted to give away Chasing Butterflies in the Mystical Forest KINDLE EDITION for FREE! Not just for one day I wanted to do it for three days! You heard right THREE days FREE! I thought three was a good number because I am at work on book three – Right?  APRIL 6, 7, and 8 – Chasing Butterflies in the Mystical Forest KINDLE EDITION FREE at Amazon!  Please remember to do a review.

I would like to send out a BIG THANK YOU to those of you who have already given one. It really means a lot to me! I have such a great group of friends! If you already have book two Chasing Butterflies in the Mystical Forest KINDLE EDITION please pass on the word to a friend. Also book one Chasing Butterflies in the Magical Garden is still only 99 cents! It is a GREAT DEAL! You can get directly to amazon right here >>>>>>>> Just simply click on the book and it will take you right to it! ENJOY!!!

Questions and Answers PART 2

Standard

Jorja Dupont Oliva More answers to your questions…

Are any of your characters based off of real people?

Of course. All of my characters are based off of real people. One Character could have at least 5 people in the combination. I write off of feeling and emotion. My characters come from how people make me feel and that attachment to them. I wanted to do my writing that way to see if  people who I know, could find themselves in the story. ()f course mostly in book one.

 

Where did the idea of BUCKETS come from?

I am in the bar business.(Yes I own a bar with a dear friend) I have been in the bar business for 20 years. We were 23 and 21 years old when we started out in the business.(Crazy right? That why the story needed to be written).  BUCKETS was also a vision of another business I had with the same dear friend. So I combined the two in the story. I am still part of that business but now I play more of the book-keeping and prep cook roll. (Of course that is by choice, because I need time to write-right?) Check out this video-

https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=msbeerhouse

That is us!

 

Is book one and two based off of your real life?

Book one started out to be a memoir of my life… yes, but manifested into some greater. I will say now, that it is very similar to my life story, the trials, the learning and the rewards. Kind of like a blue print or an outline. Book two, I went more from my imagination although the trials, the learning and the rewards also came from my life experiences. (Being in the bar business you see many lives up close and personal. Almost as if you have lived it your self. At least it is like that for me.) By the way, I probably have heard thousands of stories over the years as I served beers, and that I am very thankful for.(lots of writing material)

 

What character do  you feel you are most like?

All of them. Okay I am probably like Lizzy the most. Occasionally I see a hint of me in Dee, Ripley and even Johnny.(I was a tomboy growing up, I always loved nature and I love butterflies.) As for Lizzy, I am not as innocent an naïve as she  appeared to be either. ( sure I was at some point in my life.) I wrote Lizzy that way to see her growth a little clearer or help the reader feel it a bit. We all were innocent at one time and face it, we all have a little demon in us.

 

Why did you write book one as a blue print of your life?

As I stated before, it started out to be a memoir.  As I started writing I realized that friends and family knew my real story-Right? So I wanted to add some mystery,  puzzle, and magic, make it fun  for them to figure it out. They were going to be my fan base-right? So it may not be actually what happened, but it should spark a memory of what really did happen. I know that is what happens for me when I read books that are similar to my life.

 

    What is the most important meaning you were trying to accomplish in both of your books?

This is the hardest of questions to answer.  I wanted to help people learn about themselves from the events that play out in their lives. (everything happens for a reason.)  To see those friendships that are destined to make each of us whole. The fact that sometimes terrible things may happen in your life but end up being a blessing in disguise. I believe that every person that enters into your life, offer you gifts. Maybe something you were suppose to learn or even just support through difficult times. I was blessed to have been born into an awesome family and never really experience a dysfunctional life or very many hardships. I am a very empathetic person almost as though I can feel the pain of others going through hardships.(Probably why I was always a pretty darn good bartender.) With that being said, I tend to want to be that same support for others. As for the meaning, there is always something to learn if you open up your awareness to it and the base of it all is LOVE , RESPECT, and ACCEPTANCE  for one another.

 

What was the reasons for the quotes to begin each chapter?

I have a great love for the written word. They were put there for me. Throughout my life I have learned a lot about myself.(I do a lot of soul-searching). I have gained a lot  of wisdom that I see many people still struggling with. I would find that wisdom and eventually run across a quote that matched exactly as to how I would interpret that particular situation. It is a lot like the Indian proverb-Wisdom comes only when you stop looking for it and start living the life the Creator intended for you. – Hopi

Dee and Lizzy are chasing butterflies once again, this time in the mystical forest.

Life is often something other than what we think it is. And, when darkness takes over, we can stay in the shadows, or step out and search for the truth, which brings light.

Dee’s search takes her to the Mystical Forest where secrets are abundant. As she grapples with what is real and what is not, Dee’s precious friendship with Lizzy may be at stake.

Alone in her travels, will Dee find her true path? Will her quest for happiness be found in a mysterious childhood chest? Can the family curse she discovers be broken? Is Dee’s fate to be alone her entire life? The answers lie somewhere hidden in the mystical forest.

mystical forest

 

 

Is anyone truly meant to spend their entire life alone? In Chasing Butterflies in the Mystical Forest, Dee searches for the truth, to free her from darkness and solitude. As Dee grapples with what is real, and what is not, Lizzy can only keep faith, so it doesn’t consume their friendship. Once again, a lesson can be learned: things are not always what you think they are…
