Death's Curses by Becca Fox & Martha Agundez - Blurb Blitz - Giveaway - Enter Daily!

Death's Curses

by Becca Fox & Martha Agundez

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE:  Urban Fantasy/Romance

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

After one screw up too many, Esmeralda Barnes is shipped off to Seattle to start her first semester of college while living under the strict guardianship of her great aunt. She’s prepared to serve her time in simmering silence when she meets Charlie Campbell, the only person worth talking to at the tiny community college she’s being forced to attend. His efforts to scare her away don’t work, not even when he lefts it slip that he has a psychic twin sister who helps their uncle—a police detective—solve murders. As the former member of a gang, Esmer’s confident she’s tough enough to take anything he throws at her in stride.

Then she has a near death experience. And Charlie is the first person on the scene. It turns out, his sister isn’t psychic but she does have a special connection to Death. She and Charlie both.So maybe this friendship will take a little more work than Esmer originally thought. But hey, it’s better than the gang. Even after being pulled into a string of grisly murder investigations, running with people possessing supernatural abilities, and dealing with the very real presence of a minor goddess, Esmer’s pretty sure hanging with Charlie is better than being back with the gang. Yep, pretty damn sure.

EXCERPT ONE:

Esmeralda

I threw the door open to the men’s restroom, skidded to a halt just inside, and fell back against the closed door. Straining my ears to hear over the pounding of my heart, I bit back a smile.

“Dammit!” Randi hissed.

“Let’s just go in and get her,” Karen snapped.

“We are not getting caught in the guys’ bathroom! Let the bitch get a bad rep with Security. We’ll hang back and teach her a lesson when no one’s looking. Just keep an eye on the door for now.”

Mumbles and grunts betrayed the rest of the gang’s disappointment.

“Sorry, bitches. Not today.” I glanced at the guy standing at the urinal, giving me an incredulous look over his shoulder. “Hey. How’s it going?”

“Well, I was trying to take a piss before some girl decided to come barreling in.”

“I ain’t some girl,” I said, crossing my arms. “I’m Esmer.”

The guy scoffed. “What kind of name is that?”

“The name a couple of gypsies thought would be wicked pissah,” I said with barely suppressed annoyance.

“Wicked...what?”

“Pissah,” I repeated with a raised eyebrow. “Cool? Grand? Don’t you west coasters have a word for that?”

“Yeah. It’s cool or grand. Where are you from?” he asked, like he was pretty sure I’d been raised by wolves.

  2. To our readers: hi and thanks for stopping by!
    Fun fact about the book: The structure of the book, with diary entries after every other chapter, was largely inspired by Blue Bloods written by Melissa de la Cruz. My sister had just finished reading the series and loved the mystery of it. The little snippets of this story-within-the-story had left her wondering from the beginning how the two plotlines were related and how they could potentially come together. I hope we created the same air of mystery and intrigue in Death's Curses. There's always the risk of people getting confused by the seemingly random interjections but I particularly liked the idea of people getting to know the side characters before they're introduced in the main story. Plus, it was the first book I'd worked on that had been structured like that so it really set Death's Curses apart, gave it a whole new feel when compared to the other books I'd written.
