A flutter is a gathering of butterflies. Elegant, ethereal, inspiring joy and wonder. But not all butterflies feed on flowers and light. Some are drawn to decomposing bodies and trickling pools of blood. Some, are drawn to darkness. This collection of short stories and novellas is the perfect place to admire those creatures. Whimsical and beautiful, splattered with terror, these stories show the darkness that lays hidden within us all.

“A chilling buffet of bite-sized terror that will leave you wondering what you might have done in the same position.” -Tosca Lee, NYT bestselling author of The Line Between

“In A Flutter of Darkness, LaVelle crafts not just one fun universe but a multiplicity of them. Clear writing, fun concepts, and an eye for detail make this one a keeper!” Michaelbrent Collings, Bram Stoker Award finalist and bestselling author of Terminal and This Darkness Light
