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)

COMING SOON!!! Chasing Butterflies in the Unseen Universe

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
