All right, readers: happy Thursday! Let's get to work. You probably don't know Jessica Hill. I didn't when Hannah introduced me to her, but I've been reading her blog for a week now, and she's pretty cool. Head on over to follow her, and come right back for her query.
After seventeen-year-old Dessa Sanford dies, her spirit becomes stuck on earth and she must free herself before her soul is dragged to hell.
Dessa never expected to be dead at seventeen, much less surrounded by the dismissive living. She can’t interact with them, can’t tell them they’re wrong about her death—it wasn’t an accident and she most certainly didn’t kill herself. Searching for someone who cares, she keeps visiting the boy she can’t forget.
Garrett Cooper is the only one who believes there’s more to Dessa’s death. He saw something the day she died and didn’t act on it. Now he’s haunted by the guilt—and Dessa.
With the help of a guide, Dessa must let go of her old life if she’s to free herself from the grip earth has on her spirit. But she’s too busy following Garrett, who vows to uncover the truth about her death. The longer Dessa stays among the living, the more likely it is the Reapers of the Night will find her and force her soul to hell where she’ll be tortured by the devil for all eternity.
Complete at 61,000 words, CRASHING DOWN is a young adult paranormal that I believe readers of HEREAFTER and NOTES FROM GHOST TOWN will enjoy for similar elements and romance. I would be happy to forward the complete manuscript at your request.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
Please thank Jessica for sharing her query with us, but save your feedback for tomorrow. Thanks!
