Premise:

Everything changed for the Baxter sisters last spring. Lacey blew it with Henry her lifelong crush, only to discover a blooming relationship with her best friend, Chase. While he picked her up and put her back together, they grew closer over the summer. Now that school has started, he’s found popularity thanks to his band Cate’s Ashes, and he’s hiding secret phone calls and text messages. Plus, did his ex-girlfriend just appear out of the blue at his show? Forcing Lacey to wonder if he’s over the feelings he pronounced for her at the beginning of summer. Add to the tension, a realization and secret of her own to keep about her worse enemy. Lacey vows to be the bigger person and keep Byron’s revelation, but what will it cost?

Meanwhile, as Lana tries to find herself again after her suicide attempt, she’s befriended by the school’s resident bad girl, Britt, and new chicano boy, Tomas, in the same week. Britt offers unconditional acceptance that Lana didn’t realize she craved, while Tomas brings out the best in her, and makes her feel alive again. Britt is dangerous and daring, while Tomas exudes security and safety. Vices come easily when you are already addicted to something you crave, and Lana muddles through figuring out who she wants to be.

With their parents constantly arguing, and their dad moving into the guest bedroom, the pressure on the girls may explode destroying them all. Is there a place for happiness when their world is crumbling around them?

Welcome back to Colorimetry, Mia Castile!!  I enjoyed reading Becoming a Butterfly and posting last May. Remember that fun interview? With so much swag goodiness? Mia has returned with more swag to share...

Is Butterfly Kisses part of a series? Does it pick up right where Becoming a Butterfly left off?

Butterfly Kisses is the 2nd installment of The Butterfly Chronicles. It picks up when school starts, after the summer from where Becoming a Butterfly leaves off.  

Do you have a favorite scene?

This question is like asking a mom, "Who's your favorite child?" They all are. If there was a gun to my head and I had to choose, it would be Thanksgiving with Chase and Lacey. I wrote that scene before I finished Becoming A Butterfly.

Share something personal!!  Favorite place to write? Favorite food?

I can write anywhere, but usually write in my living room. My home office space is in the designing phase right now. My favorite place to write is with my head phones on in a quiet house.

Favorite food is Italian. and anything sweet. I'm also a peanut butter junkie and when you combine that with chocolate, well I just might love you. 

Thanks for having me on your blog Laura. :)

Lol. I have to laugh, Mia, 'cause I love peanut butter, too. In honor of Halloween and this great book release, I'll throw in some peanut butter cups with the swag... if I don't eat 'em all first!!

Hey... I write in my living room, too!! I think I can say I'm "designing office space", but at my house, it could also be called "clearing the kitchen counter". I hope you can stop by again and show us some pictures when it's finished!

About the Author:  Mia Castile



This is a story about a girl, named Mia. She grew up in suburb of medium sized city. There were cold winters, and hot sticky summers. Mia’s favorite seasons were spring and fall. She enjoyed the mild seasons, but also loved the vibrant colors each possessed. 
Mia loved music. She didn’t just love it, she sat on the floor in front of her Casio stereo for hours at a time, recording songs off the radio. Then she would cue them up and make sure she only got the music as she recorded them on a second tape, without the DJ’s voices on them, just the music. Then she would listen to those songs absorbing the words as she sat in her room and wrote her poetry. 

She wrote her first Poem when she was thirteen. It was called Sands of Time. When she was sixteen and again when she was eighteen she won two state competitions for her poetry. Her Poetry was stories of roses, starry nights, love, loss, and the scars left behind. She found recourse in those private moments filling notebooks of her writings. As she grew so did her inspirations, and when ever it hit her the rest of the world melted away until her verses were written, alive in the world. 

Even today as Mia writes mostly YA fiction, poetry still holds a special place in her heart. Her love for all things words propels her forward in her pursuit of the next great story. Her Debut Novel The Ocean will be released this spring.

  3. Right now I am on a dark chocolate kick, so anything with dark chocolate is great to me. But, I just bought some Halloween candy for the potential trick or treaters (they better show up this time, last year I ended up with all the candy left over!) and those butterfingers are looking very tempting.

    I technically don't have an ereader but I do read ebooks on my computer, so as long as a book is in mobi, kindle, pdf, epub, or really any format for which there is software I am good :).

    I am planning on getting one, but I am waiting for the perfect tablet to come out, I'm sure I'll find one since there are a dozen or so coming out in the next month or two.

    If that doesn't work though (for whatever format you have), I guess this is me saying that I'm out of the count for the grand prize.

    Thanks for having the giveaway!

    Also, as a quick note, if someone doesn't have an eReader, there are lots of great FREE Softwares out there to read eBooks on their PC/Laptop. I recommend Foxit Reader (for .pdf) and FBReader (for .ePub or .mobi) and Adobe Digital Editions.
