Whispers In The Shadows: A Dark Night Thriller, Book 1
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.
“By turns terrifying and thought-provoking, Jason Lavelle’s A Flutter of Darkness is a delicious descent into darkness that’s as delightful as it is disturbing. Each story is like a little gut-punch of terror that will keep you turning pages until all hours. Fans of Stephen King will appreciate Lavelle’s brand of horror - there’s a lot to see here, folks.”
~Alistair Cross, bestselling author of The Ghosts of Ravencrest and The Vampires of Crimson Cove
"A Flutter of Darkness is as deliciously dark as it is sweet, especially for those who like their horror stories taxed with a haunting, inexorable doom." ~Joshua Robertson
"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
“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

The whispers in the shadows have never been more urgent. Soon, the ties of her violent past will collide with everything she holds dear.
Readers' Favorite Book Reviews says, "Author Jason LaVelle's distinct ability to meld fiction with truth is the definition of Stephen King's quote: "Fiction is a lie. GREAT fiction is the truth within the lie." The story is maximum entertainment, a real page-turner, but it is also an eye-opening exposition of how love, persecution for sexual preferences, psychological abuse, desperation, war, murder and the spiritual unknown affect lives."
