Giveaway: Detour 2 Death

Detour 2 Death
Extreme Hauntings
by J.R. Turner

Description from the amazon:
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 her parents sent her to 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 soul.

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.

  1. Hello again!
    Have been away from blog hoping for a while, but I am back here, finally!
    I've been missing a lot!

    My question is...
    Having such different series, do you ever feel a bit confused, as if one character was entering the wrong universe?


  2. Great question, Carlos! Thanks for asking ;)

    I think I worried more about this when I first started the series than I do now. My female leads all seem to share the same sort of characteristics, but each in a very different way--reflective of their ages and circumstances.

    Sara Stark, in my Knight, Inc. series, is very tough--almost cold in some ways. She's a black-and-white girl--either you're good or your bad, and if your bad, she's going to hurt you. Yet she's still vulnerable, afraid to trust the wrong instinct, the wrong person, and has a deep need to connect with others.

    Kaylee, in my Extreme Hauntings series is much younger and still exploring her belief systems. She's more like a sponge, absorbing the real world and balancing it against what she considers the ideal world. Yet she is also vulnerable, afraid to trust in the same way, and needs to connect with others.

    Once I lock into a character though, they are very distinct and separate from each other. Each has that quirk, that one trait, that bit of humanity that makes them different from the other.

    Hope that answers your question!! Thanks for posting!!

  10. Sounds like a great book! I'm curious as to whether you're the kind of writer who has everything well-planned out and plotted before starting or if you start off with a very vague idea of where the story is headed and build on it as you go along? Also, I would like to know if there is a particular time of day when you find it best to write and if you're an early riser or a night owl? Is there anything in particular you need by you when you're writing- music, coffee, etc.?
