Hello My Lovely Readers, I am excited to be hosting Mia Castile on her blog tour for The Butterfly Migration. Which is the third installment in her The Butterfly Chronicles series.
I know you all will love this series.
" The worst day of Lacey Baxter’s life was the day her parents announced their divorce and her boyfriend Chase Livingston went into a coma. Scratch that. The worst day of her life was two months later, when he woke up and didn’t recognize her. Now, as he pushes her away, she clings to the hope that each day will be the day he remembers how much they love each other. Turning to her new BFF Byron and his circle of friends, she does whatever she can to cope with the changes. She just wants to be numb and forget about everything.
The headaches, the panic attacks, the pressure to be this perfect boyfriend are incredibly hard for Chase to bear. He doesn’t love Lacey, or at least he doesn’t think he does. Still, he doesn’t understand this strong attraction to her, or the jealousy he feels over every guy that talks to her. Losing two years of his memory means strangers think they know him and he’s not sure where he fits in. Will his memories come back over time or all at once? Should he even wish for them?
Finding each other again could be harder than either of them thought, especially when everyone knows their business and has an opinion about it. "
**This is a Mature YA Series, containing subjects concerning addictions and sexual content.*
I was lucky enough to get an interview with Mia. Here's is the interview:
1. Will there be a fourth novel in The Butterfly Chronicles?
Yes, I’m currently working on a novella that is from Lana’s perspective and
takes place during the same time frame as The Butterfly Migration. It will
be released later this year. Once that is complete I will begin the fourth
and final novel of the series.
2. Where did you get your idea for the series?
This series began as a stand alone with Becoming a Butterfly. As I neared
the end of the novel, I realized there was so much more story to tell. I
wanted to tell Lana’s story and Chase’s too.
3. What has been your favorite scene in the series?
This is a tough question. I love so many scenes. My all time favorite is
the cabin, and then I’d have to say maybe Chase and Lacey’s first
interaction in Becoming a Butterfly. I enjoy the bantering between Chase
and Lacey. They are so much fun to write.
4. Will there be a happy ending for Lacey and Chase?
I’d like to say yes, because I have an idea of what I’d like to happen, but
you never know where the story is going to take you. I guess we’ll have to
wait and see.
5. Can you tell us a little more about yourself
There’s really not much to tell. I put as much of me as I can into my
family, writing and friends. I think relationships are very important and
should be based on honesty and respect. I like to laugh and making other
people laugh is a bonus. And I adore peanut butter. . . That might be it.
6. What's your favorite thing about being an author?
Creating. The ability to create life, as well as emotions and seeing your
vision become real on paper is an amazing and gratifying feeling. This is
what I was meant to do, and is my purpose. Once I realized that and decided
to go for it, everything lined up. So my advice to anyone who doesn’t know
what they want to be when they grow up is this: Follow your dream, don’t
let anyone tell you it’s silly, unrealistic, or out of your reach. Don’t
wish for it, make it happen.
7. What else besides writing, could you see yourself doing?
Do I get to have a secret power? I’m not sure if I can do anything else.
I’ve had quite a few different jobs over the years. I think working around
people would be a necessity, and I enjoy working with computers, this is a
tough question. I’m not sure.
8. Name the last book you read
The Raven Boys
9. Why did you choose to write in the Young Adult genre?
I enjoy reading YA. The young, coming of age stories really appeal to me. I
like the idea of discovering yourself, making mistakes, and then
redemption. First loves and clumsy kisses, it’s great!
10. Is anything in your book based on personal experiences or solely based
Oh, I grab from real life often. Sometimes I get to rewrite reality to how
it should have gone. I’m the kind of girl that has the best comeback two
hours after the conversation. My characters are more quick-witted than me,
but they definitely channel me too, especially in their most awkward
Ashley, thank you for having me on your blog. This was so much fun. :)
