Chasing Butterflies in the Unseen Universe-COMING SOON!

Hello dear friends!

Book Three is COMING SOON! November 2015  it will be available to the public.(fingers crossed!) I’m really excite about this. I have been asked by many if this is the last in the series. I have to say yes. BUT and that is a big but, there is a lot of area’s that I can branch off from. (So it’s not the last you will ever hear from the characters!) I have a lot of really cool things I am working on. I have a few short stories I plan to publish real soon. I also have a poetry book in the works. I have some really cool holistic approaches to heath care I have been trying out and plan to do a few blog post to share what I think. Book number 3 ! I still can’t believe it! I’ll give you a little peek….

Chapter 1

Ripley seeing reflections

 

“Look at the stars, see their beauty. And in that beauty, see yourself.”-Draya Mooney

The year is 2056 and at eighty-six years old, in a world whispering-nothing is the way it was, I, Ripley Smith Watson, stand closer to the end of my journey. At least it felt like time danced by faster these days. My husband passed the year I turned eighty. That point of my life, my journey had ended. Brightest of days had long since passed. Questions of where I would go at the end of my journey called life, were a constant these days. Would I have a legacy to leave behind for my family, my daughter Lindsey, and my grandchildren? Will I be just a memory for them? Did I teach them well enough? Was Dee right with her belief of transition? Was Lizzy right with the idea of heaven existing? I was never much of a believer in spiritualism or organized religion. Things were just as they were. I never questioned that matter. From years of working for my father at the hardware store and eventually the hardware store became my store, I saw life just as I did hardware. I called my belief Hardware-ism.

You need good tools to build a home or a happy life for that matter. Each tool has its job to help in creating each life and you build your own desired outcome. May it be a home, a child’s tree house and even a bridge to cross over a river.

I considered myself more of an atheist back in my younger days than I am now. Now, I teetered on the fences of belief, the fence I built with my tools…(Unedited version)

I have stepped away from my novel for a week, suggested by my teacher, Mike Ray King. This weeks class we started on editing and rewriting. I will admit not reading it made me doubt myself a bit. As they say the hardest battle is always with the self. I was thinking it wasn’t good enough to be published and I was wasting my time. I have learned, I was wrong. I have absolutely loved every step I have made towards a finished product. As I have been sitting here going over the story and rewriting some of my words. The excitement of it, is back. I realized I was the caterpillar as I wrote. In a cocoon state editing and rewriting. The finished product a butterfly, just as my novels story flows. There is a bond, friendship and meaning with this novel. I can’t put the feelings to words. It is an attachment that I must continue to nourish. I know this is something I am supposed to do, my fate. I will admit there was a lot of time and effort put in it, but it was worth each second I spent. The more I read over it, the more in love with it I become. It is amazing the effect I get from each word. As I think back to when I was writing the story, I ask myself “How did I come up with that?” I’m still bewildered. They say you don’t choose a book, it chooses you. I do believe this one choose me. This story wanted to be written and I am the one who wrote it. I will see it through to the end. No matter how long it takes. I don’t expect fame or fortune. I would just like to have someone  benefit from it or recognize the beauty in our everyday lives that get taken for granted. I will not give up!
I am an author!
