Who knew kissing a corpse would change everything?
Death always hits Xylia Morana too close to home, but she likes it that way. She hangs out with the terminally ill, attends random funerals, and every so often, when the weather is right, she sleeps in open graves.
But after Landon Phoenix, the high school hottie, dies in Xylia's arms, she sneaks into the morgue to say goodbye. How could she know stealing a kiss from his corpse would wake him up?
With Landon returned to the living and suddenly interested in Xylia, life has new meaning. But what Xylia doesn't realize is that by kissing Landon back to life, she's thrown Life and Death off balance. The underworld demands a body, and it might just have to be Xylia's this time.
Avery Olive doesn't kiss and tell. Except when it comes to writing about hot supernatural guys. She lives with her husband and son in Red Deer, Alberta, where she spends way too much time reading, writing and avoiding house work.
She's the author of A Stiff Kiss, a young adult novel with is a morbid twist on a classic fairytale, in reverse, and Won't Let Go, involving an amnesic ghostboy who just won't move on.
What she is sure of, is that writing will always give her the chance to live adventures untold and hopes to release many more novels in the future.
This quote, at the front of A Stiff Kiss, really sums up with the overall feel of the book is about. I am so thankful that Mr. McGill was kind enough to allow me to use his words, that fit the novel so perfectly!
A Stiff Kiss
“There is no love without forgiveness, and there is no forgiveness without love.”
