Blurbage for SCYTHE DOES MATTER!

Scythe~WikipediaI’ve got blurbage for SCYTHE DOES MATTER, Book 2 of THE RELUCTANT REAPER SERIES.

To save you a click, I’ve pasted it here:

Scythe Does Matter
Tagline: Be careful what you wish for; it just might get you!

BLURB, SHORT VERSION:

Kirsty’s afterlife gets even more Hellish in this second installment of The Reluctant Reaper series when her soul-stealing ex-boss targets her beloved aunt. Her only chance to stop him? Becoming a Reaper herself. Fortunately, her hunky new boyfriend, Italian-poet-turned-Reaper Dante Alighieri, is there to help.

BLURB, LONGER VERSION:

Still trapped in the bureaucratic inferno known as Hell, Kirsty d’Arc redoubles her efforts to escape back to the Mortal Coil when she learns Conrad is after the soul of her beloved aunt.

To save Aunt Carey, Kirsty must enroll at the Reaper Academy and earn a scythe of her own.

Studying topics like Exor-scything 101, Riding the Death Cycle, and Reincarnation for Dummies is strange. But then, so are her classmates: a fallen angel, the Death Valley girls, and Kali—the ancient god of death, destruction and those little earring backs that always go missing.

Now time is running out thanks to a temporal crisis she may have accidentally created. Can she graduate, rescue her aunt, take down Conrad, and save Hell and every other dimension—before the clock stops ticking?

As the saying goes in Hell, “Be careful what you wish for; it just might get you!”
