GENRE: Fantasy, Erotica
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.”
Interview with Author Cassandra George Sturges
What is something you’ve lied about?
So many people take pleasure in telling people the “Brutal Truth.” Don’t ask me if I like your work because whether I like it or not personally—I am going to find the good, the beauty, what is most appealing about your work.
I am going to do everything is my power to help you, uplift you. If I can find a way to give you a better grade—I look for every opportunity to add a point. If I can say something positive about you—I am going to find a way.
Life on planet Earth is tough. The universe has some painful, gut-wrenching, and horrible events planned for you that all living beings must go through. I don’t want to contribute in anyway if I can avoid it to hurt someone’s feelings about something unimportant.
If I am asked for constructive criticism, I will do my best to say it in a way to build you up and inspire you.
Who is the last person you hugged?
The last person I hugged was my adult son at the time of this writing. This could have easily been my granddaughter or my significant other. My adult daughter doesn’t like for me to hug her. We only hug when one of us are going out of town or she is in an extremely good mood.
What are you reading now?
Egregores: The Occult Entities that Watch Over Human Destiny, by Mark Stavish and the Convoluted Universe, Book 3, by Delores Cannon. She is my favorite writer. I read Convoluted Universe Books 1 and 2. I plan to read all of her books. I learn so much about human life and to some degree why I feel like I don’t fit in.
How do you come up with the titles to your books?
The first title came to me in a dream. Little girls were flying in outer space on the back of their father’s velvety black long cape, screaming,” Daddy, Daddy, we want the Pretty Blue Ball,” while pointing to planet Earth. I tried to block out the vision and the voices but they got louder and louder forcing me to wake up, meditate, and take notes. Each book title thus far, has revealed itself to me. I have not put any thought into it. I simply accept it without question.
Share your dream cast for your book.
I think about this all the time. People tell me I am putting the cart before the horse. Thank you for asking this question.
The only person who could play jungle Beauty Goddess Afar is Angelina Jolie and Mada should be played by Idris Elba. Joe Morton from Scandal would play DeMatter and Angela Basset would play his wife. John Schneider why plays James Cryer on the Haves and the Have Nots and is famous for playing Bo on the Dukes of Hazzard would play paleontologist, Dr. Peter L. Roy.
Actress Danai Jekesai Gurir would play Sahara
Actress Megan Good would play Jungle Beauty Goddess Sinai
Actress Taraji P. Henson would play Jungle Beauty Goddess Chalbi
Actress Gabriel Union would play Jungle Beauty Goddess Qattara
Actress Lupita Nyong’o would play Jungle Beauty Goddess Namib
Entertainer & actress Beyonce Knowles would play Jungle Beauty Goddess Kalahari
Actor Chadwick Boseman would play Mada’s son Niburu
Actor Terrence Howard would Dr. Lunar M. Crater AkA Mr. Moon Man Lover
These are the actors I see in my head when I am reading or writing. I am not as sure about the other characters because I am still developing them.
As Mada and Afar entered the next tree cave of knowledge, they heard a soft voice singing that was so beautiful—that tears swelled in both of their eyes. They activated the tree’s knowledge, and the sweet voice stopped singing and began to speak,
“You must control the creative talents of the masses because creativity is the purest and most sincere expression of truth, personal power, and inner beauty that radiates from the human soul. Music, art, singing, dancing, poetry, paintings, and the like can be your greatest enemies to social control because it awakens and stirs the human soul to take action and make radical changes. You will never be able to control their artistic expression because it comes from their eternal soul. Artistic expression can reverberate and inspire an emotional, psychological, and social revolution among the masses that could render you powerless.
You must keep the masses busy with mundane tasks, daily struggles, and unreachable goals that lead to an afterlife of judgement and damnation. Distracting their minds will disconnect them from their true gifts, talents, and purpose. Monopolize their time and resources to ensure that they disengage from the mystical power of their inner divine source. You must control artistic expressions by only allowing art that supports your ideology, authority, and maintains the status quo as you see fit. If you fail to do this, be aware that the power of one book, one song, or one poem could unravel your power and control and lead to your demise. You may now proceed to the last tree of knowledge.
