– ‘The Magic of Wor(l)ds’ blog is a hobby, reviews and other bookish stuff on this site are done for free. –
Today I’m on the ‘Juan of the Dead’ blogtour, organised by Psst… Promotions & Let’s Talk Promos.
To promote this book I have an excerpt, but before I let you read it first some ‘basic’ information.

Go on a cruise, they said. Learn about other cultures, they said. It’ll be fun, they said.
Yeah, I thought my birthday cruise would be all sexy pool boys with fruity drinks and me working on my epic summer tan. Instead, I sacrificed my favorite Jimmy Choos and my gorgeous Coach handbag to some awful earthquake while shopping in a crappy Mexican port. That place is getting zero stars.
Oh yeah, and I sacrificed my life. Lucky for me this totally hunky (but nerdy) anthropologist, Jon, hauled my hot corpse in to the nearby ancient Mayan or whatever temple and performed some sort of creepy voodoo ritual on me.
Forget all the garbage from Hollywood about shuffling, brain-obsessed, homicidal corpses. Maybe that’s how it was in the 70’s but those misguided souls also thought polyester was a good fashion statement. What the movies got right is that someone always wants to kill off the undead, and I’m no different. I’m too young and too hot to leave the party this soon. I’ve got a second chance, but Jon and I need to know what’s going on with my post-life situation before someone finishes me off for good.
He looked at my shoes again. “I don’t know how you’d have done climbing the stairs in those things. They aren’t very practical.”
Did he insult Choo? I bristled.
“Excuse me? Practical? Who wears practical shoes? Old women who’ve lost all sense of fashion? Nurses? I don’t think so. These are awesome shoes and they match my outfit. That’s what matters!”
He looked me up and down. His gaze lingered over me in a way that sent a shiver up my spine. I sat up a little straighter, pushing the girls out a tad. He shifted in his chair and looked away. “I, um, didn’t notice. I really don’t know much about fashion.”
Didn’t take a neurosurgeon to figure that one out. His faded and mismatched clothes looked like something from a bad blue-light special. Oh boy.
I reminded myself that I was way outta this guy’s league. I was the kind of girl geeks like him had wet dreams about. He was not the kind of guy I had dreams about. Normally.
