Detour 2 Death

Sean Blog Tour Post

Thank you so much for having me here today, Sean!

I’m so thrilled about Detour 2 Death coming out. This is the third book in the Extreme Hauntings series and almost didn’t happen. Because of some family tragedies, I stopped writing for nearly a year. The funny thing is, I had been eager to write this book before the second one even came out. School’s Out 4-Ever is a fabulous book with lots of thrills and chills, but in Detour 2 Death, I got to play with paranormal settings. Bonus!

For me, creating the three grim reapers that Kaylee has to battle in alternate planes of existence were really cool. The White Reaper works the hospital in real time. He collects the dead at Marsden Memorial is a formidable enemy. The Red Reaper, Molok, runs Davey’s Feverland and makes sure his victims suffer terribly before he collects their soul. The Black Reaper lives on the dark side of this reality, in a place called Shadowland, where he torments the ghosts of the dead who haven’t passed on.

Kaylee is forced between these three places on a spirit walk. While she’s out of her body, the whiter reaper sends an ancient spirit to possess her. Not only does Kaylee have to save Davey, but she has to do it before the evil entity inhabiting her body kills her parents at home. One of my favorite moments is when Kaylee thinks, “I’ve heard of people losing their minds, but not their whole body!”

Thank you so much, Sean, for hosting me today. I’d love to offer one of your readers a chance to win a free book thong! Please leave a comment and I’ll put your name in a hat for the drawing. I look forward to taking questions or hearing your thoughts, everyone!


There are worse things than death, but not at Marsden Memorial hospital.

Kaylee Hensler knows her best friend Davey is on the brink of death. She knows this because she’s a psychic. When she flees the girl’s reformatory to get to him, she has no idea the special sort of hell waiting for her.

Reapers are collectors and they come in many forms. In Feverland, the world created by Davey’s sickness, the red reaper goes by the name of Molok, an ancient evil with deep roots. In Shadowland, the dark side of the hospital, a black reaper promises torture and torment to lost souls. The white reaper is the most fearsome, giving Kaylee three days before he collects both her and Davey’s souls.

Kaylee has one secret weapon, one she doesn’t fully understand. Her abilities will be tested, her loyalty betrayed, and her love misplaced. No one escapes Death.

Award-winning author J.R. Turner lives in Central Wisconsin with her husband and three children. She began writing in high school, and after a decade working as a commercial artist, started her first novel in 1999. Aside from crafts, camping and cooking, she loves holidays. A favorite is Halloween, a combination of spooky supernatural fun and chocolate. Visit her at http://www.jennifer-turner.com to learn more!

    Jenny, you’ve always been such a prolific author, it’s GREAT to see you getting back in stride after a really tough year. 🙂 Even though I haven’t delved into your YA offerings (while loving the Knight series, etc.) I’m -really- looking forward to reading your Extreme Hauntings series.

    Oh, and hi Sean! I’m Sue, a Quake/Echelon newbie. 🙂

    “Detour 2 Death” sounds fascinating! I’m reading your Knight series now and really expect the paranormal to be just as spirited. Get it? Spirited? Really, best of luck with it
