Insights: My Book; The Girl With The Purple Hair

The next ‘Insight’ is of my first self-published novelette/short story book ‘The Girl With The Purple Hair’.

โค๏ธ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’œ

I originally posted ‘The Girl With The Purple Hair’ on Wattpad on the 6th of November, 2016. (https://www.wattpad.com/story/89294422-the-girl-with-the-purple-hair-โœ”%EF%B8%8F). I wanted to see if people would read my story and surprisingly, as of today, 15th October, 2018, it has about 68,800 views and 14,580 votes.

I self-published it on Lulu.com in May, 2018.

The Girl With The Purple Hair is about a 17/18 year old shy mute girl called Violette, who has dyed her hair purple (obviously ๐Ÿ™„ย ๐Ÿ˜‚ย ) and a sensitive 18/19 year old boy, Benny, who’s falling for Violette more than ever.

Violette and Benny have known each other for about eight years and have been friends ever since. When she starts getting bullied, Benny quickly sticks up for her and is furious when people start attacking her and he tries everything he can to protect his girlfriend.

Violette decides she is ready to learn to speak again and invites Benny to go to speech therapy with her. This is a story of healing and over coming toxic people in the form of bullies.

Insights: My Book; My Dreamland

This is my second self-published poetry book ‘My Dreamland’ and it’s a bit different to the others.

โค๏ธ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’œ

‘My Dreamland’ is about a 17 year old girl who dreams about her perfect relationship for a year. It’s about her crush who she hopes likes her as much as she likes them. It’s representing first love and infatuation; some would call it ‘puppy love’ ๐Ÿ˜Š

I’ve split the poems up into four sections; Winter, Summer, Autumn, Spring and for each season I’ve written about 16 poems…

Insights: My Book; When Daisies and Thunderstorms Collide

I haven’t explained very much about the first poetry collection I’d ever self-published and it’s very special to me.

โค๏ธ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’œ

When Daisies and Thunderstorms Collide is about a young lady ย (the Daisy)ย who falls for a young man (the Thunderstorm).ย It’s told in the perspective of a daisy who describes aย thunderstorm as the gentle, pattering rain, the rolling thunder, the rainbow on dark days, etc. She also finds herself to be uninteresting and paints him as the beautiful one.

Somewhere in the middle of the book she shows her disappointment that the young man is not reciprocating her affections or making any effort at all. The daisy also finds herself becoming slightly bitter saying that he only talks to her when she speaks to him.

Towards the end she realises that actually she can do better than him and gradually starts to distance herself from the thunderstorm.

By the time the poetry book ends, she discovers that, not only can she be as delicate as a daisy, she can also be a raging thunderstorm in her own right.
