Detour 2 Death Blog Tour Contest & Giveaway

Hey, there! Welcome to the second stop for J.R. Turner's wonderful Extreme Hauntings series and its latest installment Detour 2 Death. Today, is the official release day for the e-book edition of Detour 2 Death. Actual physical copies will be released soon.

You might want to check out my introductory post for this blog tour at my first stop which was yesterday, Detour 2 Death Blog Tour, which also includes a guest post from J.R. Turner herself! You may also want to check out the other stops on this tour which you can find on the poster on my sidebar or by going to J.R. Turner's Website.

So, the book we're celebrating today is the latest installment in J.R. Turner's Extreme Haunting series. Here's a blurb all about it:

Detour 2 Death by J.R. Turner
Release Date: February 15, 2011
Detour 2 Death back cover blurb- "There are worse things than death, but not at Marsden Memorial hospital.

Kaylee Hensler knows her best friend Davey is on the brink of death. She knows this because she’s a psychic. When she flees the girl’s reformatory to get to him, she has no idea the special sort of hell waiting for her.

Reapers are collectors and they come in many forms. In Feverland, the world created by Davey’s sickness, the red reaper goes by the name of Molok, an ancient evil with deep roots. In Shadowland, the dark side of the hospital, a black reaper promises torture and torment to lost souls. The white reaper is the most fearsome, giving Kaylee three days before he collects both her and Davey’s souls.

Kaylee has one secret weapon, one she doesn’t fully understand. Her abilities will be tested, her loyalty betrayed, and her love misplaced. No one escapes Death.

From yesterday's post:  "If you haven't read this series, the books are a YA paranormal action romance series. (The romance has been hinted at, but I really want to see the good stuff, already!) It's creepy and intense, and if you're into the supernatural as far as ghosts and demons and angels and things of the otherworldly nature, you're definitely going to enjoy this series!

So, the first book in the series is called, DFF: Dead Friends Forever, in which the heroine Kaylee Hensler must help a ghost-girl murdered at least a century ago escape her killer even in the after-life. You can check out my Review: Dead Friends Forever, read a blurb about it on Goodreads, or purchase it at Amazon to see what all the buzz is about. The sequel, School's Out 4-ever, is set in a boarding school where Kaylee has been taken to versus serving in juvie for the aftermath that happened in book one. Barclay appears to be a normal, ordinary school though far from it; a place where students go missing and turn up suspiciously dead years later. Read my Review: School's Out 4-ever to see my feelings on it, go to Goodreads to find out more about it, or head off to Amazon to buy yourself a copy to accompany the first book you're thinking about placing an order for. *winks*"

I hope you're excited, because I sure as heck am!

Two really cool contests! I also think it's a great idea to have people post on other tour blogs to build cross-support and gain entries.

I haven't read about this series on any of my usual blogs, so thank you for bringing it to my attention. I love finding books that not everyone and their mother has read. :)
