Jungle Beauty Goddesses Book Series
by C. G. Sturges

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Fantasy, Erotica

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB – PRETTY BLUE BALL – BOOK ONE:


If you were given planet Earth as a gift to develop its life forms—would the world be a better place than it is today? What would your primary expectation and goal be for each human? Would you give them free will or plan their destiny? Would you demand that your humans worship you as their creator? Would you be available to assuage their every desire; and acquiesce to their demands, prayers, and wishes? Would you grow to resent them for living the life you imagined?

The Jungle Beauty Goddesses were free-spirited goddesses who enjoyed their freedom as the youngest children—and the last deities born to their parents—creators of the universe. Per the family tradition of being awarded a planet, the septuplets were given planet Earth as a gift for their birthday. Their siblings, also gods and goddesses of the universe since the beginning of time, warn them about the challenges of selflessness, power, worship, and divine duty.

The seven sisters struggle to maintain their own freedom as limitless beings, while sibling rivalry makes it difficult to accept their collective duty to fulfill the family obligation to the deity-hood as creators for planets.

The entire universe threatens to collapse due to their negligence and disobedience. They question the boundaries of their divine powers as they ponder whether it is possible to mold a being to be superior to its creator.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB – AQUATIC BALL – BOOK TWO:


Sometimes your worst nightmare is having everything you ever wanted. Upon visiting planet Earth, the Jungle Beauty Goddesses discover that the life forms they created are in danger of extinction, and an unforeseen dominant species has positioned itself to take dominion.

Unprepared and disillusioned about how to access their highest vibrational frequency; the Jungle Beauty Goddesses face their own demise.

The only way they can save themselves, their planet, and ultimately the universe is by managing to align with their deity powers and the wisdom of their highest selves in the face of their worst fears, disappointments, and betrayals.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB – DIRTY BALL – BOOK THREE:


If you had the power to make anyone in the world fall in love with you—would you? Jungle Beauty Goddess Afar revokes her deity vows and takes her destiny into her own hands by participating in the life she was born to create for others.

Afar embraces the deepest, darkest nuances of her shadow self with brutality, dignity, and integrity. She brazenly unleashes the murkiest qualities of the human condition and leaves the chaos for her unsuspecting sisters to clean up or suffer the consequences of losing the planet given to them by their parents--creators of the universe.

Jungle Beauty Goddess Afar’s actions give a new meaning to the saying, “Hell has no fury like a woman scorned.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

EXCERPT THREE:

Nebula lifted the soup spoon out of the pot, so swiftly and ferociously, that she shoved Namib and Sinai to the side. Nebula charged Dematter with the spoon in her hand. She frantically beat him in the chest with the spoon, as she yelled, “You have destroyed this family. I hate you. You animal! You beast! You are not a creator—you are a destroyer. You are evil. I hate you. You are the devil! You took my babies from me and I will never forgive you for that. You monster!”

Nebula alternated beating Dematter in the chest with the spoon with kicking him. Dematter’s massive chest withstood every punch. While Nebula was beating Dematter, he thought to himself, that he would rather feel Nebula beat him --than not have her touch him at all. He would rather hear her angry words curse him-- than not hear her voice at all. He would rather know that she hate him-- than to have never known that she had once loved him. And he would rather feel her pain-- than feel nothing at all.

GUEST POST:

Do You Ever Wish You Were Someone Else?  Who?

I have never wished that I were anyone else. However, I have wanted to change things about myself. I asked my father to paint me white, when I was a little girl. My daddy asked me why didn’t I want to look like the people who love me the most in this world. I responded to him, “Daddy, everybody hates Black people.” My Father cried. I was always teased about having dark brown skin by the other children, however even the adults would say, “You are pretty to be so dark-skinned.”

What’s ironic about not liking my skin color growing up is that the color preference for light skin was perpetuated in the African American community—the factor that made me “Black” made me the wrong shade of black. Too black be beautiful, and not black enough to be African, I felt isolated growing up.  In my Jungle Beauty Goddess book series, Afar is the fairest sister of the septuplets and she wants to be dark like her sisters. She is obsessed with how looking different makes her feel inadequate and less attractive than her sisters.

I have been seriously contemplating changing my birth name. I looked up my name on name analyzer site and every single thing they said about me is true. If I change the bad qualities about myself, I wonder if this will eliminate or alter the good things about myself?

I pondered how this would affect my relationship with my ancestors and my current relationship with my family, children, significant other, and the students who register for my classes based on my twenty-year reputation as a psychology and sociology professor. I thought about changing my name on all of my degrees and books that I wrote over 20 years ago-- thinking maybe this name change will open the door for more lucrative opportunities. I honestly don’t know if I have the inner power to change my basic nature of overspending, succumbing to spells of self-doubt that causes me to move from project to project, and giving in to limiting beliefs and negative thinking patterns that take so much time to recover from.

I plant seeds for new ideas because I am super ambition, but I dig them back up with impatience and negative thinking because they aren’t growing fast enough. Either I drown the idea in its inception from too much water trying to get it to sprout faster; or I become disheartened  because it is not showing signs of sprouting so I completely neglect it--  leaving it wither from lack of water by moving on to another idea.

My name is a combination of everything that is good and bad about me-- my personality quirks and traits that make me uniquely who I am. My primary fear is that what is bad about me is preventing me from accomplishing what is best about me.
