Welcome to day 2 everyone! Today I answer the question you all might be wondering. Why all the purple?!
If you follow my blog or my instagram you couldn’t help but notice then endless purple… EVERYWHERE.
Where did this shade of color even come from? Dewdrops and Butterflies of course.
When I first started writing the novel, Dewdrops and Butterflies was not the original name, but from the beginning, Rose lived in a forest woodsy sort of place. There was a beautiful place with a whole bunch of wildflowers that over time became called “Bluebell Valley.” So original, I know. Here was the inspiration for it.
It was really cool to imagine what could happen here and why it was important. In addition to being Rose’s home away from home, Bluebell Valley was her butterfly haven.
As you read the story you’ll understand the significance of butterflies in her life, and it started with a simple picture like this, which also happened to be purple.
As I kept writing and learning about this hurt girl and her story, purple just seemed to shadow everything she did, and why?
Purple is not silent, but it’s not considered a prominent color. Red, blue, Yellow, Green. Even Pink is a prominent color. But even as purple is set aside, it’s not silent. Purple is a fighter. It harbors a silent strength and vibrance. Even google says “Purple combines the calm stability of blue and the fierce energy of red.”
When I decided that Dewdrops and Butterflies was going to be everything that I needed it to be as my debut novel, I knew that I had to create a theme. Almost like a minor brand. And I’d like to say I succeeded! Many people, when they see the color purple, automatically think of Libby. And I’m linked to my book!
Today I had the honor of guest posting on Faith Pott’s Blog StoriesbyFireflies. Make sure you head over and check it out!
