The Iron Butterfly is a gripping tale about the intense devotion and ordeal of Regina Buendia, a young mother who suddenly finds herself all alone and penniless with nine young children to support after her husband died in the pre-WWII era. Facing a bleak future, she has to find a way to tackle a male chauvinistic society where men still rule the business world. Will she be able to break through the barrier?

As the Great Depression affected the colonies, she is now faced with new concern – how to survive with business suffering and money being so tight. She then finds herself in a new adventure but not all is rosy. As her children grow up, she is faced with new dilemma about her children’s changing attitudes towards married life.

Just as she thinks she is getting ahead, a major natural disaster happens with terrible consequence to follow. Then her problems become insignificant compared to what was about to happen – the attack on Pearl Harbor and how the war in the Pacific affects their very existence.

An inspiring story of faith, hope and daring ambition.

The Iron Butterfly is available for purchase in paperback and Kindle at http://www.amazon.com/author/rosalindarmorgan.

MY FIRST YEAR AS A WRITER

It has been a year since I published my first book, “BAHALA NA (Come What May)”. In the course of the year, I have learned a lot about the publishing industry and how it works. I subscribe to the Writer’s Digest, read blogs and books about writing and publishing.

I’m a late bloomer. I published my first book at 69. I wish I had done this when I was younger. This is my third career. I was an accountant for 32 years, a real estate agent for 11 years, and now a writer. I have a lot of catching up to do and so I want to make the most of my time. I enjoy writing and seeing that finished product is a joy unto itself.

I am proud to see my book in print. It was originally intended for my family to chronicle the life of my parents, how they met and their life during the war. It ended up as a historical novel based on their story. It is a big achievement for me to have done it while my mother is still alive. She’s 91. To see how happy she is reading her story is worth a million dollars.

Last November, I joined the group for the NANOWRIMO (National Novel Writing Month) challenge. I sat by my computer banging away the required 50,000 words in a month for my second book – “The Iron Butterfly”. I finished at 56,607. I’m now in the process of editing the book and it has grown to 65,500 words so far and I’m half way editing it.

A year later after I published my first book, I did another milestone. I have been thinking of creating a website for my neighborhood for a while and I finally launched it. That makes two websites with my name on it: my personal website and my neighborhood’s website. I have three blogs: my author’s blog, my gardening blog, my local rose society blog and there are other countless websites and blogs I’m involved in. My name since I started real estate business in 2000 has been on the internet and more so now that I am a writer. I read, write and blog as much as I can and on my leisure time, I garden and take care of my 40 rose plants. It’s a wonderful life!
