A warm welcome to Dale Ibitz, author of Kiss Me Dead, a new adult urban fantasy! Here's a quick Q&A with the author:
Please tell us about yourself using 3 verbs, 1 quirk and a pop culture addiction
I’m a disorganized animal lover who’s addicted to the outdoors and chocolate and passionate about The Walking Dead series.
Who do you consider the most swoon-worthy man in the literary world? How about on tv/in the movies?
Without doubt Damian from the Vampire Diaries, Ian Somerhalder
I totally agree! *sigh*
What’s the last song you listened to?
Take Me To Church, Hoosier
Something Different by Godsmack is playing right now as I prepare the post.
What are your thoughts on book covers- in your opinion do they make or break a book?
They definitely make a book. People need to be attracted to the cover before they even read the blurb.
I admit- I do judge a book by its cover. Perhaps its human nature.
Do you have any advice for anyone that would like to be an author?
Take classes, be persistent, and keep writing. The more you write, the better you get.
There you have it. Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today!
Kiss Me Dead
New Adult Urban Fantasy/Romantic Suspense
One curse . . .
Christian, a nineteen-year-old reaper-human hybrid enslaved to the Other World to harvest souls, earns his freedom by making a bargain with the Goddess of Death. As part of the bargain, he’s been cursed with the kiss of death.
One kiss . . .
The only way Christian can break his curse is for an angel to kiss him. Willingly. He finds Brooke, a nineteen-year-old descendant of a Naphil whose destiny is to hunt rogue reapers, suffocating in a semi-agoraphobic cocoon since witnessing a reaper steal her brother’s soul.
Two destinies . . .
Christian has found the angel who can break his curse, and the seduction begins. To break her phobia’s hold, Brooke embraces her angelic role and makes it her mission to kill rogue reapers to avenge her brother’s murder. Christian can break his curse by kissing Brooke dead . . . but will she figure out his game and kill him first?
About the Author-
Dale Ibitz was born in Connecticut, grew up in the state of Washington, and then re-located back to Connecticut as an adult, where she studied English at Central Connecticut State University. Always a lover of books, she spent much of her childhood reading, visiting the library (her best friend’s mother was a librarian), and writing. In sixth grade, she placed 3rd in a writing contest, and she’s never stopped.
Dale’s a fan of hiking and the outdoors, seriously good writing, and she never, ever starts the day without chocolate and coffee (preferably together). Music inspires her, and she likes to listen to alternative metal.
If you were to visit Dale’s house, you'd meet her husband, 2 kids, their dog Lea (most people simply refer to her as The Beast...and for good reason), their cat Luna (affectionately known as Loony Luna), and a couple of loud-beaked parakeets.
