Why Grim Reapers? by Elizabeth Holloway - Guest Post + Giveaway




Why Grim Reapers? 
By Elizabeth Holloway

Why Grim Reapers? It’s an interesting question. I mean, there are so many other supernatural creatures out there to write about. Why not write about shape-shifters, witches, or vampires? I have nothing against those other creatures. As a matter of fact, I’ve read and quite enjoyed books that feature them. Honestly, I didn’t really “choose” Grim Reapers so much as they chose me.

I can’t say what triggered the thought, but at some point an idea popped into my strange brain. The idea was that being a Grim Reaper would be a terrible job. I mean, can you imagine spending all of eternity witnessing death, death and more death, including the deaths of people you love? I figured I wouldn’t want that job at all. And if I was saddled with it, for some reason, I’d quit as soon as I could.

So, what would happen if Death wanted to quit his job? Obviously, he’d have to find a replacement. Would he be able to convince anyone that his job’s awesomesauce? I figured he wouldn’t, so there had to be a damned good reason for the replacement to accept. And the story was born.

Death Becomes Me
(Call Me Grim #2)
by Elizabeth Holloway
Publication Date:  November 2015
Genre:  YA, Paranormal



Libbi and Aaron are Grim Reapers on the run. They may have escaped their hometown of Carroll Falls unscathed, and are together and alive (well, more or less), but they’ll soon find there’s a price to pay. A deadly one.

By escaping Carroll Falls, Libbi and Aaron have broken the Reaper’s covenant with Abaddon, aka Death himself – and now they’re right at the top of Abaddon’s Most Wanted list. There’s nowhere to hide, and not a single person, alive or dead, they can turn to for help.

But just as it's looking like the end of the line, Libbi hears word of a Reaper in hiding – a Reaper who once escaped Abaddon's wrath. Finding this mysterious Reaper might be the perfect solution… if Death doesn’t find them first.

The truck should have turned Libbi Piper into a Libbi Pancake—and it would have, too, if Aaron hadn't shown up and saved her life. The problem? Aaron's the local Grim Reaper . . . and he only saved Libbi's life because he needs someone to take over his job. Now, Libbi has two days to choose between dying like she was supposed to, or living a lonely life as Death Incarnate. Talk about a rock and a hard place. And the choice goes from hard to sucktastic when her best friend shows up marked: condemned as a future murderer. Libbi could have an extra week to stop the murder and fix the mark . . . but only if she accepts Aaron's job as Reaper, trapping herself in her crappy town forever, invisible and inaudible to everyone except the newly dead. But, if she refuses? Her best friend is headed straight for Hell.
