Chasing Butterflies in the Mystical Forest
by Jorja DuPont-Olivia
New Adult/contemporary women’s fiction/magical realism

Lizzy and Dee are chasing butterflies once again, this time in the Mystical Forest. Life is often something other than what we think it is. When darkness takes over, we can stay in the shadows or step out and search for truth, which brings light.

Dee’s search takes her to the Mystical Forest where secrets are abundant. As she grapples with what’s 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 a family curse she discovers be broken? Is Dee’s fate to be alone her entire life? The answers lie hidden somewhere in the Mystical Forest.

What is your latest release and what genre is it? My latest release is Firebound, book two in the Spellbringers Series. It falls under the young adult paranormal romance heading.

Quick description: The story follows two main characters—Rachel and Alisa. Alisa is an ordinary human, but her best friend and boyfriend are both Spellbringers (wielders of magic). She struggles with feelings of inferiority, and at the same time, fights to maintain a sense of independence as her relationship with her boyfriend progresses and becomes more serious. Rachel is new to the magical world and has to hide her true nature from her family. In order to protect her brother from dangers he isn’t aware of, she forges an alliance with evil. She’s afraid to confide in her friends, so she tries to handle her problems on her own, which only serves to put everyone around her in danger.

Quick description: College student and art major Samantha Harper has been tracing her family tree for quite some time. Her mother, Rebecca, died when Sam was sixteen and she never talked much about her past. Samantha is thrilled to hear that she will be allowed to research her mother’s past for a school assignment. Upon arriving in Rebecca’s old neighborhood, Sam arranges to have a tour of her mother’s grade school. She finds an area inside the school that had been damaged and at first, thinking a ghost has been inhabiting the gymnasium, she accidentally crosses over into the year 1975; the year when her mother is in kindergarten. Fascinated and scared at the same time, Sam gets to witness her mother’s childhood up front as she inadvertently gets involved in an old case of a young girl’s accidental death. Little Josie Baker, a classmate of Sam’s mother, died that year inside the school gymnasium. But, was it an accident? After uncovering the dark secret surrounding Josie’s death, Samantha wonders if she’ll ever find her way back home where her father and best friend, Josh, have been waiting for her return. Will she return to the present or will she have to live the rest of her life in the past?

All of Sarah Addison Allen’s books had me hooked. She is the reason I started writing. I would read all of her magical worlds and see how my life was just as magical!

Quick description: This is book three of my New Adult Romance series, The New Pioneers. Jessie Bartolome has never been delicate and she’s sick of people treating her like she’s going to break. She’s fearless . . . but would she be if she knew the truth about what happened to her parents? And who should she depend on to help fill in the blanks? Because everyone thinks they know something, but one very surprising person is going to hold the key to answering all the questions.

Brief biography:
I love writing fiction because it gives me a chance to recreate the world as I think it should be. Otherwise I’m deeply immersed in reality in the form of my four children!

Two things: editing the fourth release in my series, Let’s Move On, and working on book number five, The Golden Boy Returns.

Deborah’s reading recommendation:
I’ve been loving chick lit mysteries! Danielle-Claude Ngontang Mba’s Bird of Prey was a sexy, smart, internationally set romantic suspense, and on the other side of the spectrum Caroline Fardig’s It’s Just A Little Crush was a double murder mystery set in a small town that made me laugh out loud.
