Self-Published Saturday: Blog Tour and Book Review/Butterfly Assassins

Normally I don’t do blog tours on a Saturday, but since this is for an Independently Published book, I can post this on Self-Published Saturday. Self-Published Saturday is solely devoted to Self-Published/Indie authors, and is my attempt to help them with the marketing side of things a little bit. As you know, self-published authors have to do it all, from cover design to editing to marketing. I am happy to give any help I can in that effort.

Butterfly Assassins is the second book in the Wifi of Dreams series, and I put up a review of the first book Wilson Indeed, earlier today. I have reviewed Wilson Indeed before, and I thought today was a great day to post them together. Butterfly Assassins is part of a Blog Tour by Zooloo’s Book Tours. Please see the book description and review below. ,

BOOK DESCRIPTION

Sally Bennett was an orphan and an only child. Incomprehensibly, at the age of ten, both her parents died in quick succession. Proof that fate deals our cards blind. One can be dealt three buses in a row, a run of traffic lights on red, or a pair of deaths; it all depends on the shuffle. Destiny was playing its hand and having led with a heart, the face card of her mother, Sally had no other option but to follow suit. 

When Wilson and Daisy play with the Tetris blocks of the future, problems soon stack up. Butterfly Assassins is the sequel to Wilson Indeed and takes us back to Sally Bennett, the car accident, shared dreams, and a divine intervention outside Davenport train station. This is Book Two is the WiFi of Dreams Trilogy.

In a recent survey, 85% of people said yes to the question: “Do you believe there are things out there that science can’t explain?”

If you’re one of those 85%, you’ll love The WiFi of Dreams series.

BOOK REVIEW

Book 2 in Steve Walsh’s Wifi of Dreams series is possibly even more creative and imaginative than the first book. It cannot be read as a standalone. In order to understand the intriguing world of dreams, you must enter the Marketplace through Book 1, Wilson Indeed. The Marketplace is a Town Square of sorts for the world of dreams. In Book 2, we revisit Sally Bennett, to whom we were introduced in Book 1, and we follow her to the Marketplace. We are also brought back into Wilson’s life and see the complications that manipulating the future can cause. The characters are so well done, and the story is clever and captivating, with many twists and turns. The fantastical Marketplace, its many inhabitants, and their complex schemes will keep you turning the page. The omniscient narrator is fascinating themselves, as they appear to be the ones pulling, or trying to pull, the strings. The way that dreams interact with the real world is captivating.

Butterfly Assassins shows us how the world can turn on a whim or the flutter of a wing. It is a creative adventure that should not be missed.

I received a free copy of this book via Zooloo’s Book Tours. I also obtained a copy on Kindle Unlimited, where subscribers can read it for free. My review is voluntary and my opinions are my own.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Steve Walsh

For twenty years Steve Walsh honed his skills in prose as an advertising copywriter; the ‘ideas’ man in a Manchester based marketing agency that carried his name.

In the late 1990’s he stumbled into the world of the dotcom entrepreneur and his claim to fame is as the creator of the hotel booking service, laterooms.com and the first car insurance comparison site, easycover.com. So, the birth of Meerkats, a Welsh opera singer and being confused.com might be considered as down to him, for which he apologises. 

He now uses his vivid imagination and gentle Mancunian wit to write visionary fantasy novels with bold concepts. Wilson indeed, the first book in his trilogy The WiFi of Dreams takes the reader on a richly imagined, fact meets fiction adventure story to which we can relate and feel we can touch. A whimsical interrogation of the inexplicable and fundamental tenets of our lives – the role and meaning of dreams, the nature of the hereafter, hard and soft science, a love story – what more can you want? 

Butterfly Assassins is the second book in the trilogy.

Born and bred in the north west of England, Steve Walsh has three children and likes to fly fish in his spare time.
