Quote of the day: “I’d have been dead a long time ago if not for my friends, one of whom had just jumped off the cliff after me.
I’d have been a lot more appreciative if he hadn’t pushed me first." Cassandra Palmer ― Hunt the Moon by Karen Chance

Cover Reveal & Expert: Hereafter by Terri Bruce

HEREAFTER

Cover Reveal

Short Expert:
A boy appeared in her path. She veered around him and then skidded to a halt. Something about him made her stop. She turned around to look at him and realized he was staring at her, his face a mask of astonishment, his mouth hanging open.
“Hey kid, watch where you’re going!” she said, more surprised than annoyed.
He was maybe fourteen and nearly as tall as her, at that “beanpole” stage, as her grandmother had called it—the tall and scrawny look of one growing too fast. What little of his face visible under a curtain of straw-colored hair was pointed and sharp—cheekbones, chin, and nose. His hair, cut in an asymmetrical bob that left it longer in the front than the back, was parted on the side and hung in his face, concealing his left eye. Somehow, the way one washed-out hazel eye was visible and the other hidden reminded her of Pete, the dog from the Little Rascals.
She realized he hadn’t moved a muscle and was still staring at her gape-mouthed.
“Did you hear me?” she asked.
He gave a little shake of his head, as if he was doing a double take. The motion caused the curtain of hair hanging over his eyes to sway. “Yeeesss,” he said in a slow, cautious, drawn-out way.
“Why are you staring at me?”
“Well, it’s just, because…you know. You’re…” He trailed off.
Irene narrowed her eyes. “I’m what?”
The boy turned beet red and took a step back, giving a hard gulp that made Irene fear he had swallowed his tongue. “Well…dead,” he stuttered.


Synopsis:
Why let a little thing like death get in the way of a good time?
Thirty-six year old Irene Dunphy didn't plan on dying any time soon, 
but that’s exactly what happens when she makes the mistake of 
getting behind the wheel after a night bar-hopping with friends. She 
finds herself stranded on Earth as a ghost, where the food has no 
taste, the alcohol doesn’t get you drunk, and the sex...well, let’s just 
say “don’t bother.” To make matters worse, the only person who 
can see her—courtesy of a book he found in his school library—is a 
fourteen-year-old boy genius obsessed with the afterlife. 
This sounds suspiciously like hell to Irene, so she prepares to strike 
out for the Great Beyond. The only problem is that, while this side 
has exorcism, ghost repellents, and soul devouring demons, the 
other side has three-headed hell hounds, final judgment, and 
eternal torment. If only there was a third option…
