Heard of TPG’s Tasters?! Thrilled to find The Night Butterflies featured 🙂
The parasite guy
Remember this feature? No? Didn’t think so 😛
Aaaaanyway…today’s taster comes thanks to a certain Sara Letourneau, who recently reviewed The Night Butterflies over on her blog. I liked the sound of the book a lot from Sara’s review, and decided immediately to check it out – which I guess just goes to show how useful reviews can be.
As ever, my impression of the book began with the cover…
Does that just scream “self-published” to you? No? Didn’t think so. But the thing is, this is self-published – and the fact that it’s not readily apparent is a very good sign as far as I’m concerned. This is a really striking, professional-looking cover, and I really want to see what’s contained within.

I remember the day they burned the babies.
Imagine a stark world where medication is your only sustenance, manufactured offspring your only company and a dark secret your only hope. Where the very air is poison and the concept of humanity has been lost. This is the world of The Night Butterflies.
