Synopsis

The "Butterflies", an elite problem solving group under the direction of the U.S. First Lady, have just completed an assignment in the Sinai Desert. Butterfly members Mariposa, P, Z, and Mrs. Cleaver meet up again in Buenos Aires. They are joined by Team Leader, Calhoun.
The assignment in Argentina ostensibly involves working with a community of impoverished women living near the capital. But it soon becomes apparent that the women of Buenos Aires are hiding a monstrous secret.
As had happened in Sinai, Mariposa begins to experience strange, psychic phenomena. The spirit of long-dead Eva Peron, Argentina's beloved "Evita", appears to be communicating! Eva's Spirit guides "The Butterflies" on a journey into the surreal area of Argentina's Patagonia. There, an extraordinary discovery is made: the body of a man, preserved for eternity.
It is believed, at first, to be the remains of Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler, who is alleged to have escaped Germany in 1945.
But Mariposa and the Butterflies soon uncover another astounding possibility, a possibility that could change the world forever!

Cranthorpe Millner logo Cranthorpe Millner

250 copies • Partial manuscript.
Cranthorpe Millner operates a hybrid publishing model. This means, should an author pass our editors’ strict filtering system, we can offer different kinds of agreements depending on the author and the manuscript. With some authors, we work under a ‘traditional’ model, whereby we cover the full cost of publication and the author is offered industry-standard royalties (8-10%). To some authors, we offer what we call a partnership or contributory agreement, whereby the author is asked for a financial contribution so that we may share the risk and enter into a partnership together to publish the author’s book. In this case, the author receives around 60-75% royalties.

1106 Design provides book design, production, and publishing services for independent authors who seek all the quality of traditional publishing without forfeiting their rights and royalties in return. 1106 Design provides traditional publisher quality with one-stop, end-to-end services from copyediting to worldwide distribution. We operate just like a publisher with one difference: YOU maintain complete control of your book, your schedule, and most importantly, your payments.

In our model, distribution accounts are set up in your name. When a book is sold, the retailer takes a cut, the printing cost is deducted, and the balance is deposited directly into your bank account, never ours first. The difference can amount to several more dollars per book in net revenue to you. Our most popular package for non-fiction books, 50,000 words and under, including copyediting, cover design, interior layout, proofreading, eBook formatting, and distribution set up in your name is just $7,353. Fiction titles are slightly lower, $6,488.
