Craft Time!! Butterfly Wreath


Book Related Craft

Butterfly Wreath




This would be a neat craft to tackle if I have the chance for some free time. It's going to take a little research on how to do this but it appears simple enough. A grapevine wreath for the base, beads for the butterflies bodies, and string for the butterflies antennae. When I get the chance to try this I will post pictures. Feel free to share yours if you decide to try this little project out.

The Story of Alexis Rose follows a young girl who had survived a tragic accident, one where she lost her father and her will to continue on. After six long months of hiding away stuck deep in a dark depression Alexis finally decides to move on and live her life the way her father would have wanted.

Description:

After six long months, Alexis Rose has just decided to begin a new chapter in her story after a car crash that tragically took her father away from her and her family. 
A crash that she can’t seem to get past, considering it was entirely her fault. 
A fact her mother hasn't allowed her to forget for even a moment. 
Her fraternal twin brother, Duncan, talks her into getting back to the life she had all but forgotten and back to her friends that she had left behind while in her bubble of depression. 
Her only worries are whether or not her forgotten friends will forgive her for pushing them away, and if her once boyfriend, Lucca, would forgive her and want to pick back up where they had left off. 
Everything seems to be fitting right back into place as Alexis rebuilds her life, but as soon as it looks its best it all comes crashing down around her. 
A deadly virus takes the world by storm. 
The dead rise. 
Her friends and family go missing. 
And she’s left alone. 
Alexis must quickly choose her path in this new apocalyptic world, and thankfully she finds someone who will keep her from falling back into despair. 
Friends and loved ones die, and at moments all seems lost. 
What will she end up doing in order to survive this cruel world that she has been suddenly thrown into? 
Will she give up or will she fight? 
When it comes down to life, death, or love, she must live to love or die trying.

Early Release for "Alone"

Early Release!!

Alright, so I just couldn't wait a minute longer to hit that publish button. Of course the wait for it to actually be available on all of my usual sites nearly drove me crazy but here it is, Alone, book One in the Among the Dead Trilogy.


Three years ago there was an outbreak.
River has been alone from the beginning, living in an elaborate bunker that her father had built in case of the very emergency that had occurred.
People were infected and most died, but a small few turned into rabid creatures that would kill anything that crossed their paths.
They were the creatures nightmares were made of.
As River survives on her own she ends up forced out of her shelter to find food, but what she ends up finding is trouble, and possible enemies.
Gale just so happened to be running from his own troubles with his brother, Evan, and two sisters that they had found along their travels, when out of the blue a new girl runs into his path.
With a little luck, they help each other out and end up becoming quick allies, but when Gale’s past comes around to bite him, will he throw everything away?
What happens when the trouble he and the others were running from catches up to them? Will River get caught in the crossfire? Of course she will.
Barely escaping the nightmare Gale brings down on her head she’s lucky enough to find the one person she had considered dead, and then she is forced to lose him all over again.
It’s like her life has twisted into one huge roller-coaster ride, one that places her into the arms of an old friend.
But again that relief is short lived when he turns on her. River soon finds herself on the road running alone yet again and far away from the most dangerous man she has ever encountered, Zach.
Zach gains on her quickly, and when he captures her she loses her heart in the process.
Once again her luck is tested when she’s taken right out of Zach’s arms by someone she had once trusted, someone that had betrayed her before.
Thankfully, she is saved from the new horrors he threatens by some new strangers. And with a single shot these new people will change her life forever.
Will she make it back to the bunker, back to where she belongs in her first loves arms? Will Zach be able to track her back down and re-spark the flame between them?
Or will she find safety somewhere new and in someone else's arms?

New Title for "The Invisible Butterfly"

A New Title

I've been busy this weekend doing exactly the opposite of what I had planned on doing, but in any case I edited "The Invisible Butterfly" and even added two new chapters to it to give a little more insights into the story.

I also changed the name. It will now be known as "Losing Levi". I believe after a lot of thought that this title better suits this story.

Along with those changes I've been working to put this book into physical form along with all the others that I have been working on.

Here's what it's going to look like.

This will be the eBook cover.


And this will be the book cover.


So, it's pretty much the same cover photo minus the butterfly on her shoulder. (and let me say that thing was hard to remove, but I nailed it.) Anyway, I love the new look and I'm really hoping it will draw more readers in.

****

Eden Grayson is a girl who had spent her entire life on top.
She had it all, popularity, great friends, and the boyfriend that every girl wanted.
That is, until her parents split up and her father leaves Eden and her mother for another family and another life that he had made while still with her and her mother.
 Everything suddenly comes crashing down around her.
Her friends turn their backs on her and the boyfriend she thought she could count on leaves her alone.
Feeling lost and without hope for a better future Eden falls into a deep depression.
There’s only one who can save her, Levi Mackey.
As an outsider himself they quickly form a friendship that they both come to rely on.
Their strong bond quickly transforms into love, but when an unexpected tragedy splits them apart will Eden be able to survive?
How will she go on without him, she doesn't have a clue.
Eden fights her inner darkness as she mourns her loss, and with the help of her family and unexpected friends she will overcome it all.
She finds real love again.
But not before she finds herself.
And only then can she help those around her.
Eden, the truly invisible butterfly will emerge the most beautiful butterfly of all, leaving her pain and sadness behind.

Excerpt:
“When you have those moments just think of me, call or text me when you feel weak and I will always be there for you. Nothing about this will be easy, life is hard, we just feel it more than most because our souls have been broken and are raw.” – Logan.
