New Cover Reveal For Becoming A butterfly By Mia Castille

Mia has decided to redo her book covers for the Butterfly Chronicles and boy oh boy has she made my day! God I love the old covers but I am SOOOOOOOOOO in love with the new covers. 

Out with the old cover......
In with the new cover ...... what do you think!
Becoming a Butterfly

Sixteen year old Lacey was never the center of attention, unless she was tripping, stammering, or being deposited into a pool by the local popular kids. All she wanted was to fit in, until one night when everything changed. 

Jade and Tasha, her two best friends, helped her create an online personality that was everything she wanted to be– and it was only the beginning. In doing so, she attracted the attention of Henry, her lifelong crush and next door neighbor. Unfortunately, it was Farrah, her online personality and not herself, he was interested in. 
She also attracted Chase, the brooding, quiet, anti-social new kid of Brownsburg High School, who easily figured out her secret and blackmailed her. 

They forged a friendship that was both unique and complicated. 
Lacey must decide if revealing herself to Henry and her entire school as the cool, charming, and funny Farrah is worth possibly losing him forever. She finds herself needing to make an even harder decision than she ever thought possible. When did the lines between truth and lies get so blurred?

Becoming a Butterfly is a story about coming of age and finding yourself when you never knew you were lost.

I enjoyed telling my stories as a small child, of an imaginary friend, named Charlotte. I don’t remember interacting with her; but I always told tales of our adventures. I guess even as a small girl the creativity started early.I don’’t speak Spanish, unfortunately, even though my father emigrated from Mexico. He met my mother in the United States. They were married for nine years, but in the end, went separate ways. Thank God, my grandparents were able to help raise me and my sister.

 I did a lot of my creative writing during my classes in high school. I almost flunked Algebra that year, but I walked away with the beginnings of my first novel, The Ocean. I only wrote seven or eight chapters before I became overwhelmed. I set it aside eventually forgetting about it but stuck with writing poetry as I continued with my life, even into my “Urban” phase. This was the time of my life that I say ““My slang got a little twang in it.” I did a lot of growing up over the next few years.

 I have always lived in Indianapolis. I love the feel of this city. It’’s small enough to get anywhere in about forty-five minutes, but has a nice big city feel downtown. When you get all dolled up and go out on the town, you really enjoy it. I have vivid dreams. That is where I get most of my inspiration for my plots and themes. It was a series of dreams that forced my hand to begin writing again.

 I began writing the series Generations. When I was half way through the story line, (not the first novel) The Ocean began creeping back into my mind. It became an obsession and I realized I had to write it again. These two stories are very intricate to why I became a writer.
