Love Is Death
The Afterdeath, Book 1
by L.P. Masters
Genre: YA Paranormal

Gina’s plan for her afterlife is simple: survive as long as possible. The afterlife is a ghost-kill-ghost kind of place. When she meets newly dead Alec, she can’t help her desire to protect him. Before she knows it, she finds herself falling for him, despite the little voice in her head telling her it’s a bad idea. Alec’s goals don’t mesh well with Gina’s plans. Determined to save his living sister from a murderer, he’s willing to disobey the laws of a well-established cult in the afterlife. If the cult finds out, they’ll kill him. Again. He’s hesitant to accept Gina’s help and threaten her afterlife, but he’s guaranteed to fail without her. Together they embark on a perilous mission, but the most dangerous aspect of all is the threat of falling in love. Because in the afterlife ... love is death.

An Excerpt from Love Is Death

"Hey," I said softly. "What's going on?"

He bit his lower lip and shook his head. "Nothing."

He was lying. Something was bothering him, and that was dangerous.

I heard a rare sound: birdsong, but it was clear, not muffled, which meant it was a ghost. I searched for it. There!

"Look, quick." I pointed at the ghost of a black-capped chickadee a few feet away.

Alec smiled. The little bird twittered in its usual way and hopped across the grass, head turning in jerks like birds always do. It took wing, and I knew what that meant.

"Watch," I whispered.

In the middle of a flap the bird disappeared. Its water dropped and splashed on the grass, and for a moment the afterghost continued to fly, swooping and twisting in the air before it disappeared as well.

"What the…?" Alec looked shocked.

"Birds don't stay in the afterlife. Not for long."

"Why not?"

"Soul sickness. They get here, realize there is nothing like them around, and they get sick." I held my breath. "The same can happen to you if you're upset about something."

Alec looked me in the eyes. His stare was intense, as if he wanted to tell me something. Then he tore his gaze away. "I'll be fine, Gina."

I wanted to swear. He wouldn't be fine. I could see it. I could feel it. He was going to die again if he couldn't get himself out of that mood.

She has participated in National Novel Writer's Month every November since 2010. Writing isn't the only thing she can do with a pen in her hand, she also enjoys sketching and drawing—with varying degrees of success.

  1. I cannot wait to read this book.

  2. I believe in the possibility of life after death.

  3. Awesome book. There is currently no proof that life after death could be even possible. Most people would use personal experiances as proof , but to me, that does not make it factual .It sure would be nice , but in the meantime , I would rather live this life as if it's the only one I will get.

  4. I think there is not much possibility of life after death. Probably wishful thinking but I would love to be wrong.

  5. I think there is life after death! Thank you for the offer.

  6. I absolutely believe in life after death. And I really want to read the book.

  7. I think the book sounds great..I am not sure but I hope there is life after death.

  8. It sounds like a book my sister would enjoy reading. I do believe in the paranormal. I've had a couple experiences that make it impossible to dismiss.
