About the Book (Excerpts & Info):
"One day, my dear, one day you will be famous. Everyone will know your name. I feel it. I feel it now...a very strong sensation."
She suddenly relaxed her grip, casting Petra's hands away from her. The old woman grasped the arms of her chair and moaned once again, swaying back and forth. Abruptly she stopped and leaned towards the crystal ball. Her hands stroked the spherical contours of the glass without touching it. Bending her shoulders forwards, she peered intently at the ball. Petra tingled with anticipation.
"Your life is like a book. It has a beginning, middle, and an end. There will be many, many men in your life, but only three of any importance. Each will influence one of the stages of your life. One of these men will be good for you, one you should be extremely wary of, the other one–" (Chapter 1, page 13)
This is a Crime thriller that centers around Petra, a teenage rebel who sets out to fulfil her destiny of fame and fortune. As she searches in vain for her prophesised fame she becomes the victim of the evil face of humanity. Vicious assaults, sadistic serial killings and a bizarre twist of fate combine to create this powerful Mystery Thriller.
Vance's obvious passion for the thriller genre is apparent through his succinct and descriptive writing that has the readers as involved in the story as the characters. He takes a risk letting the reader in on the antagonist's point of view, but he balances it with logical questions, answers, and assumptions the protagonist uses while working to solve the case. He balances dialogue with narrative without wasting a word.
Deftly constructed at 280 pages, Killer Butterfly is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the Thriller/Mystery/Crime category. With Global wholesale distribution through Ingram, Barnes & Noble, Baker & Taylor, Books a Million and Borders, and pervasive online availability through RealTime Publishing's online store TheEbookSale, Amazon and elsewhere, Killer Butterfly meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $16.95 and $10.95, respectively.
