At 16, she was kidnapped and murdered by a madman named Bonesaw. But that's not the problem.
The problem is she landed in purgatory. And while it's not a fiery inferno, it's certainly no heaven.
It's gray, ashen, and crumbling more and more by the day, and everyone has a job to do. Which doesn't leave Velveteen much time to do anything about what's really on her mind.
Velveteen aches to deliver the bloody punishment her killer deserves. And she's figured out just how to do it. She'll haunt him for the rest of his days. It'll be brutal . . . and awesome.
But crossing the divide between the living and the dead has devastating consequences.
Velveteen's obsessive haunting cracks the foundations of purgatory and jeopardizes her very soul. A risk she's willing to take—except fate has just given her reason to stick around: an unreasonably hot and completely off-limits coworker.
Velveteen can't help herself when it comes to breaking rules . . . or getting revenge. And she just might be angry enough to take everyone down with her.
Three ARCs are up for grabs on each of the host blogs, easy peasy. Just comment on all three for three chances to win. BUT THERE'S MORE!

Each blog has a different author photo that was up for possible inclusion on VELVETEEN dust jacket but only one was selected! Win the ARC on the blog with the actual author photo and you'll win a SURPRISE GRAB BAG (photo not actual size).
Don't bother asking me what's in it. I'll never tell. Ever. Like Ever. There might be clues in the included fake bios...or not. Who knows! That's half the fun. Just make sure to comment on each of the blogs!
DANIEL MARKS fled the priesthood in 2005 and began a whirlwind romance with adventure shortly thereafter. His thirst for danger is legendary and unquenchable and yet he remains pure and virtuous, much to the chagrin of his wretched detractors. Now settled into a pastoral life, he writes sweet romantic young adult books and tends a small flock of sheep on a secluded Wyoming ranch. VELVETEEN is his first novel and because of his background couldn't possibly be about ghost kids possessing dead bodies, making out and reeking havoc on the living. It's just not possible.
