Shelley’s Volume Two: Butterflies Arrives!

Volcanoes, Butterflies & Jesus – Volume Two: Butterflies

I am trilled to announce the delivery of my second book in the three Volume series, Volcanoes, Butterflies & Jesus. Volume Two: Butterflies has turned out better than I could have ever imagined. 

There are 17 extraordinary stories from other authors in Volume Two: Butterflies, and a few of my own short stories as well. All of these writers have opened up their personal lives to share with us an event that has somehow changed their life. I feel extremely fortunate to have these people share their stories in this book. The art of story telling is both healing for the writer and the reader. For the writer it surfaces and releases all kinds of memories and feelings through the writing process. For the reader, it can trigger emotions and possible suggestions on how to handle something difficult in their life. It also places the reader in another world for a short period of time and engages us all in empathy and tolerance for our neighbour. 

If you purchased Volume One: Volcanoes and enjoyed my story you will certainly savour this next book in the series. If you have not yet purchased my first book it’s not too late. Here is the link for purchasing both books online. If you live in Melfort you can also purchase the books today at Melfort Spiffy Car Wash and as of Thursday, July 18th you can purchase them at Modern Flare, Home Hardware and Birds of Paradise Florist and Pet Supplies. If you live in Saskatoon, McNally Robinson has both Volumes and if you are in the Greenwater Provincial Park area, the Greenwater Park Store has them for sale. 

I’d love some feedback once you’ve read either one or both. Enjoy the rest of the your summer and I wish you all many blessings.

Excerpt #15 – Volcanoes, Butterflies & Jesus – Shelley Zwingli

(Continued from Excerpt #14)

Branelle turns the television on and makes sure the volume is very low. The voices on the television are more than I can handle. Even the quiet volume is amplified. This extra disturbance is too much of a distraction for my already troubled mind and soul. I lay here a while longer, then ask her to shut the TV off. Branelle realizes that I’m struggling to relax so she suggests some deep breathing exercises. She thinks they might help unwind my tensed up body.
