Summary of Ellie, Everlasting

Blurb for Ellie, Everlasting:

What would you do if you discovered your favourite fairy tale was based on reality?

During the last year of high school, an unexpected tragedy tears Ellie Parker away from her family, and her girlfriend, Olivia. While the survivors struggle to cope with the trauma of losing someone so young and full of promise, Ellie finds herself wrapped up in the adventure of a lifetime… on the other side of the grave.

Neverland is real.

Peter Pan is real.

The Lost Boys and Girls are real.

But something sinister lurks in the shadows, threatening both worlds. Will Ellie and her new friends be able to save Earth and Neverland before it’s too late?

Poem #29: NOT Waiting Around

I haven’t seen you for months.

Today when I saw you,

with your warm blue

eyes and sandy blonde

hair, I almost died inside.

Love pulsed through

my veins, but I turned

my back before it showed.

When you gave

me your number

8 months ago, I

hope my shaking

hands didn’t give

anything away.

He only talks to me when

I talk to him and I quite

frankly, I am sick of it.

If he is not going

to make any effort,

then I’m not waiting

around for him to

get his shit together.

Review #10: Wattpad Book: Cinderelliot by archertypes

Title: Cinderelliot

By: archertypes (Or Fury Evans)

Genre: Teen Fiction / LGBTQ+ / Poetry/Short Story

Summary: ❝He was my Prince Charming; I wasn’t his Cinderella.❞ Based on true events…

In this short story narrated from the perspective of an unsung version of Cinderella, Elliot Banks tells what it truly feels when you have an unrequited same-gender love with your straight close friend.

Rating: 💚💚💚💚💚 (See my Reviews Ratings post for more details)

My review of Cinderelliot:

I absolutely loved this story. It’s so well-written and I could feel Elliot’s pain. I have liked boys who already had girlfriends and I’ve also liked straight girls before, so I know how that feels…

It’s a stunning story of love, betrayal, and a twist of the classic Cinderella fairytale. Each chapter is written in a poetic form that flows beautifully and tells the uniquely sad story of unrequited love.

I also believe that the way the main character, Elliot describes the boy’s girlfriend is how many of us secretly (or otherwise 🤣) think about their loved ones other half and wish to win their affection.

Overall, the story pulls on people heartstrings and I very much enjoyed reading it. I liked putting myself in all the character’s shoes. I highly recommend Cinderelliot and hope you love it as much as I do.

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’.

❤️🧡💛💚💙💜

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-✔%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 🙄 😂 ) 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.

❤️🧡💛💚💙💜

‘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’ 😊

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.

❤️🧡💛💚💙💜

When Daisies and Thunderstorms Collide is about a young lady  (the Daisy) who falls for a young man (the Thunderstorm). It’s told in the perspective of a daisy who describes a 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.
