Some interesting things you may not know about butterflies

Date: 8th May 2017, Posted by mollie

I love butterflies—who doesn’t? I love them so much I created a love story, suitably named Flight of Passion, in which they play a starring role. Here’s a sneak peek at the super gorgeous cover for the print version, designed by the mega talented designer Hang-Le.

Business owner and artist Hang Le creates dynamic images, cover designs, and branding for a diverse group of clients. With more than 10 years experience in film, theatre, and interior design, Hang Le makes every project personal and every book comes alive. She certainly made the cover for Flight of Passion soar with dazzling vitality.

Flight of Passion is a rapturous tale of beauty, obsession, and unconditional love’s transformational power. You can learn more about this book here, or check out a sample and purchase a copy on Amazon here
I’m so thankful to fellow romance writer Anna Campbell for recommending Hang Le. Anna writes historical romance, and I have always loved Anna’s sizzlingly sensuous stories and her beautiful covers. Passion inspires passion.
One reviewer on Goodreads shared how she was intrigued by the fact the book could easily transfer to a historical era and how she loved learning about butterflies and enjoying the love story.
I have written a Regency version of this romance—which I adore. I’ll have to finish that book. But for now…

Here are some interesting things you may not know about butterflies

  • Some can travel all the way from Canada to NZ.
  • Many live for only two days, others for several months, and some hibernate over winter to reappear again in the spring.
  • Male butterflies are more colourful than female butterflies.
  • They don’t just feed on flowers. Some prefer rotting and smelly things.
  • Butterflies don’t grow. Once they are born their size stays the same.
  • Many have warning colours and patterns to deter potential predators from wanting to eat them.
  • The wing patterns are made up of hundreds and thousands of tiny scales which, under a powerful microscope look like roof tiles.
“I absolutely love, love butterflies and Mollie’s descriptive language made me see them as brilliantly colored as I imagined them to be!”
