Ghost of Death blog tour

Today I welcome a special guest, the talented Chrys Fey, who has a game for us based on her new release, Ghost of Death. Over to you, Chrys!

Avrianna Heavenborn is the detective in Ghost of Death and Jolie Montgomery is
the ghost. Together, they make an interesting duo. Jolie was a
twenty-one-year-old college student when she was murdered, and Avrianna is a
young detective who devotes her life to her job. Jolie is spunky and Avrianna
tends to be sarcastic, so their dialogue is also interesting. While reading the
galley, I realized if I took some of their funnier pieces of dialogue and
removed their names, that it would be difficult to tell who said what.

To test my theory, I have 7 examples below. See if you can guess them correctly. :)

1. “There’s a killer out there and you’re not doing
anything about it.”
2. “You’ve been as clingy as freaking plastic wrap…the
good brand.”
3. “You look like you need some alcohol.”
4. “Intense?
Try bizarre. Try
deranged!”
5. “Then you could beat a confession out of him.”
6. “Because
I

want my pizza.”
7. “For all we know, I could be an alien.”

In your comment put an A for Avrianna and a J for Jolie.
Good luck!

Genre: Supernatural/Suspense

Blurb:

Jolie Montgomery, a twenty-one-year-old woman, wakes up
in an alley next to her corpse. She has no memories of her murder or the night
she died. She didn’t even see the killer’s face before he or she took her life.
Wanting justice, Jolie seeks answers in the only way a ghost can...by stalking
the lead detective on the case.

Avrianna Heavenborn is determined to find the person
responsible for a young woman’s death. She gets closer to the killer’s identity
with every clue she uncovers, and Jolie is with her every step of the way.

But if they don’t solve her murder soon, Jolie will be an
earth-bound spirit forever.

Excerpt:

            With the sound of her mom’s grief
wafting up to her, Jolie came to terms with her present state. I’m dead and now my mom knows it. She eyed
the door in front of her. She hadn’t yet walked through a door, but if her hand
could pass through metal then she knew she could move
through wood.
If I have to be a ghost then I’ll be a
damn good one. All across the afterlife I’ll be known as the Ghost of Death!
And I’m going to start by walking through this damn door!
            She would’ve taken a
deep breath to brace herself if she could have, so she mentally pumped herself
up instead. You can do it! Easy-peasy.
Nothing to it.
And she took a step forward. Solid matter slipped around and
through her form. On the other side, a familiar site confronted her: a black
and white bed, the bright green shag carpet in the middle of the room, and a
white desk.
            Stepping up to her desk, Jolie eyed
her ancient desktop computer, the one she used before her dad gifted her with a
laptop when she announced she was accepted to the local university. Wanting to
send out the first ever tweet from the afterlife, she pushed the button to
bring the device to life, but her finger poker straight through it. Resigning
to her Twitter-less fate, she moved toward the full-length mirror hanging on
the wall. She saw nothing. Not even a shimmer in the air hinted at her
presence.
            Being
a ghost sucks!

Blurb:

Detective Reid Sanders doesn’t believe in the
supernatural, but when he’s faced with a crime scene that defies the laws of
nature, he has no other choice but to start believing. And solving a magical
murder involves working with a witch.

Liberty Sawyer embodies the look of your classic evil
witch, so, it’s no surprise when she uncovers the murderer is a witch that she
becomes Reid’s number one suspect. If she can’t convince him otherwise, more
people could lose their lives to dark magic, including her.

Donna, you had 2 wrong on your second try, but you were the first to get one right that almost everyone else got wrong (except Betty). So good job! :)

Such a fun premise for the book! and a great excerpt.

Chrys Fey said...

Liz, thanks for taking a shot at it. You got two wrong. Nice try! :)

Thank you, Jamie!

Keith, you had one wrong! You were super close and got two write that mostly everyone gets wrong.

Nick, that's alright! :) Sadly, you got four wrong. Hint: two wrong in a row for one character and two wrong in a row for another character. If that makes sense. lol

Thank you, Southpaw!


I think I'll reveal the answers tomorrow in case anyone else comes by to try guessing today. :)

Good for you, Beth! Everyone did so well. If I hadn't written the story, I would've mixed up half of them.
