I am pleased to announce that “Cocooning, The Butterfly” has been entered and a competitive Nominee in the Global eBook Awards Competition for 2020.
Just to be accepted, is an honor. This prestigious Award, is giving to only the best of the best entries and the competition is vast, fast, and furious. I have no unrealistic expectations, yet I am thrilled with the exhilaration of inclusion. For now, I wait for the judge’s vote, comments, and reviews.
“Cocooning, The Butterfly” is about to be released into the great beyond. May 1, 2020, tomorrow she will flutter about the globe with distribution to all major bookstores and booksellers. A bittersweet emotion it is – similar to watching your child leave home to go to college.
Marnye Young Hull – or better known to the creatives of the audiobook industry as AudioSorceress – has graciously gifted me the Monthly Feature spot for May 2020 on her website. I am stunned at the gesture, thrilled with the opportunity, and taken aback by her generosity. One day, when the time is right, I will without hesitation, request Marnye’s expertise in bringing my book to an audiobook.
I cannot find the words to truly express how grateful I am to be gifted such an honor, other than to say, I am humbled.

“Cocooning, The Butterfly, is as deep a metaphor as the author’s bravery in exposing her emotions.” Review by R. Lawrence ~ British Columbia, Canada
Many reviews come in, and many are received by email. Thank you, Mr. Lawrence, for contacting me with such praise and a humbling review.
MAGNIFICENT narrative with the touch of excellence
“Very quickly I became caught up in the narrative and was trapped irrevocably with this delicious heroine who was orphaned at a very young age and left alone to cope for her self and not surprisingly made bad decisions that really hurt. Then suffering horrible consequences, she takes control of her life. It is an adrenaline-pumping experience where I was loudly cheering her on as SHE began to turn her life around. This is the stuff of Gabriel Garcia Marquez where — carefully crafted and beautifully constructed fiction is irreversibly captivating. This extraordinary and remarkably fabulous narrative has a way of trapping the reader at the edge of his or her seat. To say I could not put the book down is the truth. This is a great experience. I COMPLETELY RECOMMEND THIS FIRST BOOK!” Amazon Review by C. Michael Bennis, Author & Speaker ~ Tucson, Arizona USA
Thank you, Mr. Bennis, for your kind words, encouragement and praise. To be compared to such a writer as Gabriel Garcia Marquez (learn more about Mr. Marquez on his IMDb Profile) is to be honored with the highest regard for my writing, and I accept this as not only an honor but a privilege. You have given me the courage to continue writing, and I thank you, from the bottom of my heart. And, I am so very happy that you enjoyed the book.
