Jorja DuPont Oliva
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.
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…
I know…I know Book one just came out. I am still smiling like the joker with that but I CAN”T STOP WRITING! I haven’t been sleeping with all the ideas I have for the next book. I had started It just before my first was published. I wanted to take my time with it BUT now that the new year approached and pressure from my readers for another book…Well I’ve got my butterflies back and I’m so excited to get this one done. I’m 1/4 of the way and plan to work each night on it until it’s finished…that is a promise! I learned something about myself this year…I am a people pleaser! I tend to neglect things that I feel are important to me to please others. Now I have found my happy medium. My writing is important to me and you reading my stories is important to you. Thank you for the wonderful reviews and most of all thank you for wanting more! Here is a little taste of book two!(Possibly-I never know which way the story will go until I get there!)
Dee is struggling with the thought of being alone for the first time in years. After discovering her near death experience has opened her eyes to the other side- the spiritual realm. Secrets lurk around every corner that she steps. There is questions needing answers. Everything she thought about her family history were lies of convenience. Dreams of the past taunt her into discovering she has broken the curse put onto her family centuries ago-or has she? A childhood chest opens her up to a world she has imagined to be her fate. Searching for truth is the only answer and Lizzy is the one to show her the way.
Lizzy returns to her small southern town with no plans of the future. Until she meets Dee, a former high school classmate rumored to talk to the dead. Lizzy and Dee go in search of butterflies in the magical garden we call life and find the lasting power of friendship. Needless to say, the magical garden is where you just might find what you are looking for.

After taking a tiny break away from my novel. It was the worst week every. Again, I will say I was doubting what I had written. I started bashing myself for even thinking I could write AGAIN. I was having emotional trauma. Ii was the battle with the self that was keeping me in a negative world. After class Thursday I convinced my self AGAIN, I am writing this novel for me.
REMEMBER, I do love it. I will finish. I will publish it. I’ve been reading and rewriting(cleaning up and polishing) for two weeks now. Holding on to words of others.
Albert Einstein- I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious.
Eleanor Roosevelt-The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.
Ella Fitzgerald-Don’t give up trying to do what you really want to do. Where there is love and inspiration, you can’t go wrong.
I will admit it is a battle with my thinking and acting on it. Isn’t that always how it is. When I throw my pen down and all but give up, that voice of “give it one more try” pops into my head. Week two of edditing and rewriting come to a close. One step foward and two steps back. I have started on book two to keep my creativity alive. Honestly I so enjoyed the writing part that I had to treat my self to a reason to indulge. Poetry was helping but it was only the appertizer. I needed the meal of writing. Although you can make a meal out of appetizers it just doesn’t fill me up. Until I blog again my friend!
