(Call Me Grim #2)
by Elizabeth Holloway
Publication Date: November 2015
Genre: YA, Paranormal
Libbi and Aaron are Grim Reapers on the run. They may have escaped their hometown of Carroll Falls unscathed, and are together and alive (well, more or less), but they’ll soon find there’s a price to pay. A deadly one.
By escaping Carroll Falls, Libbi and Aaron have broken the Reaper’s covenant with Abaddon, aka Death himself – and now they’re right at the top of Abaddon’s Most Wanted list. There’s nowhere to hide, and not a single person, alive or dead, they can turn to for help.
But just as it’s looking like the end of the line, Libbi hears word of a Reaper in hiding – a Reaper who once escaped Abaddon’s wrath. Finding this mysterious Reaper might be the perfect solution… if Death doesn’t find them first.
The truck should have turned Libbi Piper into a Libbi Pancake—and it would have, too, if Aaron hadn’t shown up and saved her life. The problem? Aaron’s the local Grim Reaper . . . and he only saved Libbi’s life because he needs someone to take over his job. Now, Libbi has two days to choose between dying like she was supposed to, or living a lonely life as Death Incarnate. Talk about a rock and a hard place. And the choice goes from hard to sucktastic when her best friend shows up marked: condemned as a future murderer. Libbi could have an extra week to stop the murder and fix the mark . . . but only if she accepts Aaron’s job as Reaper, trapping herself in her crappy town forever, invisible and inaudible to everyone except the newly dead. But, if she refuses? Her best friend is headed straight for Hell.

The Gory Truth About Being a Nurse
I have a confession. I don’t write full time. As much as I’d love to be able to support myself and my family with the product of my imagination, unfortunately I must pay the man with actual money. So, I bridge that gap in funds with another, equally rewarding career. I’m a full-time nurse.
I’ve spent the last eight years working in maternity and I love it. But I have to admit, sometimes the two careers overlap. For instance, having a good grasp of anatomy helps a TON when I’m writing about illness, wounds, blood, guts, and stuff. And there is one particular scene in Call Me Grim where Libbi suffers from an asthma attack where my medical background really helped.
But having such a consuming career sometimes has a negative effect on my writing. Exhaustion is real, folks. And sometimes I’d rather sleep, or lounge on the couch and read or watch TV than try and tackle a writing project. It’s a hard thing to balance, but I’ve managed.
My hope is to become successful enough with my writing to be able to cut back on nursing. I’d never quit, because I love it so much, but it would be nice to not have to choose between sleeping and writing.
