Add on post for Butterfly Tattoo by Deidre Knight
Deidre Knight's people was kind enough to send this to me to post so post I shall-
Groundbreaking Butterfly Tattoo Finally Available in Print
Butterfly Tattoo by Deidre Knight, which created an online sensation when released as an e-book last April, is now available for the first time in print (Samhain Publishing, February 2010).
The story’s release in any format indicates that contemporary culture’s acceptance of the sometimes “fluid” nature of sexuality has taken giant strides.
When Knight first shopped the novel in 2004, Michael and Rebecca’s love story was deemed too controversial for public acceptance. Michael is struggling to come to terms with his male life partner of 12 years being senselessly killed by a drunk driver a year earlier. Then he meets and falls in love with Rebecca, a woman carrying physical and emotional scars
“I came close to selling repeatedly,” Knight explains. “It was considered for hardcover at several big houses, but each time the book proved to be just a click too edgy.”
However, after little more than two weeks on the market as an e-book in April, a search for “Deidre Knight’s Butterfly Tattoo” on Google delivered 9,850 hits. The first two pages consistently catalogued very positive reviews. Today glowing praise continues to predominate, page after page.
Why not read this groundbreaking book and determine its “edgy” factor for yourself? To order your copy of Butterfly Tattoo visit Borders, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Books-A-Million or any of your other favorite online retailers.
