Jungle Beauty Goddesses Series: Pretty Blue, Aquatic Ball, Dirty Ball
by C. G. Sturges
Jungle Beauty Goddesses “Pretty Blue” Book 1
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.
Jungle Beauty Goddesses “Aquatic Ball” Book 2
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.
Jungle Beauty Goddesses “Dirty Ball” Book 3
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.”
Now for the interview!!
What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
I am not a big fan of ice cream in general. I eat ice cream maybe 4 times a year. We have ice cream socials at my job that I never attend because they don’t have my favorite ice cream flavors which are Baskin & Robbin’s Pralines and Cream; and Cold Stone’s Coffee Lovers only in a sugar cone please.
I love these ice cream flavors because they are chunky, 3 Dimensional, bold, and unapologetic. When I eat ice cream, I completely indulge. I like to enjoy what I am eating and when I am satiated and satisfied, I don’t think about it again for another 4 months or so.
What's the first book you remember making an indelible impression on you?
I was probably in the 2nd or 3rd grade when I read “Are You There God ? It’s Me, Margaret “ by Judy Blume a coming of age book for girls going through puberty. This is actually the first book I ever read and is responsible for turning me on to loving to read. For some reason, this book inspired me to cast my first spell. You would never believe what my first request from the universe was?
Yep, if you read the book you guessed right. I wanted big boobs like the women in my family. I don’t believe I thought of it as magic or spell casting at the time— but looking back as an adult I can say this was my first spell.
I sat 3 pennies on the windowsill in my bedroom and asked God for big boobs. Every night for weeks, I would go to the window hold the pennies in my hand and thank God for big boobs. This went on for a while and overtime I completely forgot about wanting big boobs—Santa was coming and of course, I needed to make my wish list Christmas for new toys and other more pressing life events distracted me for decades.
I wore a small B cup until after having both of my children in my early thirties. In my 30s, I started wearing a 36 DD bra size. In my late 40s I started wearing DDD bra size that I am still wearing in my mid-50s.
I don’t know if the spell worked or if it was a part of my genetic fate to have big boobs. Of course I wished they were small again so I could go braless in the summer, wear tube tops, and spaghetti strapped evening gowns.
How about an excerpt? Sure!
I know what she needs. She needs me to adore her. She needs to see versions of herself expressed from the perspective of another being. I will create images of her from the elements, and this will draw unto me.
Mada painted an image of Afar inside of a nearby cave. He painted himself in the picture holding her hand, with the sun shining rays of love from above both of their heads, surrounded by trees and birds. He wrote at the bottom of the painting is a universal language, “I love you. I love you. I love you. Collapsing space and time, you are already mine.”
When Afar saw the painting in the cave, she pressed her body against it and attempted to hug it—but her arms could not fit around the giant life-size painting in the cave. “I love you, too,” she whispered to the picture.
Afar used her goddess powers and merged into the painting, breathing life into the painting of her and Mada on the cave wall. She animated the picture, and she and Mada walked hand in hand along the beach, tossed pebbles into the water, only stopping to kiss her passionately beneath the smiling sun. After saturating her likeness with Mada’s love for her, Afar exited the painting on the cave wall and left it as she had found it.
