5 STARS from C. Michael Bennis on Cocooning The Butterfly

 5 of 5 stars – 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 Profileis 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. 

Cocooning The Butterfly by Laila Doncaster – Official Book Trailer

If Halya had known what the Knight Riders stood for, stood against, and what they did to protect her life from the Demons Den gang, would she have experienced the trauma and heartache that she had gone through?

Possibly, but that’s not what happened or how it was.

Sheltered and innocent to the reality of the bikers that swarmed about her everyday life, and the modern world, her family did what they had to do to save her from sure death. The Demons wanted her dead, but they had to find her first.

Orphaned and uneducated about the real world she was bullied, beaten, shunned, molested, raped, battered, harassed and broken, but her faith and will to endure gave her the strength to search for the man in her nightly dreams.

This is Halya’s side of the story, what she went through and how she overcame the pain and sorrow of her past.

Loving her, protecting her, sheltering her in warmth and tenderness, her dream man, The Buffalo, it was his destiny in Cocooning the Butterfly that would save her spirit from sure madness, as he used his horse whisperer’s tactics to make her feel safe.

A biker’s war, a long-standing feud over a multi-million dollar ranch, one boy and one girl were destined to achieve the promise of the old men of long ago.

Canadian Traditional, Self-Publishing & Hybrid Publishers

Just some of the Publishing Firms I’ve found so far, and most are Canadian based – the majority of which are listed members of the Canadian Publishers Association – however, some may have offices located in other countries. Finding the right method of publishing, or publisher, is like finding a needle in a haystack. Be aware! Not all traditional publishers are the same, and they all have their own methods and procedures for manuscript submissions. I personally, chose to publish with a ‘hybrid’ publisher – Book Baby – because I wanted the control, ownership, and rights to my work, but I also wanted the best royalties available, as well as a distribution channel that reached the world. I got all of that, in one easy to use control dashboard, where I can do anything and everything an author would want or need to do to publish, promote, market, sell, advertise and offer discounts or coupons. I wish you all the best on your journey.
