Cover Prayer

Title:   Prayer for the Dead (Revenants in Purgatory, #1)

Author:  Nicki Scalise

Genre:  Paranormal Romance 18+

Publication Date:  September 30, 2013

Cover Design By:  Rene Folsom at Phycel Designs

Event organized by: Literati Author Services, Inc.


This is the story about a girl who lived, died, and met a guy… in that order.

Is it possible to find true love and happiness, while condemned to purgatory until the end of days?

Olivia Brennan wasn’t eager to find out. Working for a division of Purgatory and Associates, her job consisted of one headache after another, caused by the impatient souls waiting to move onto eternal paradise. After a hard day at work, she was most content to stay home, watching reruns or reading a book. Aside from a few friends occasionally forcing socialization, her afterlife was nothing special.

That all changed the moment Drake walked into her life. He was handsome, charming, and had a sadness behind his eyes she could relate to. It seemed that Fate had finally brought her a kindred spirit…

But could Olivia move past her own dark regrets of the life she left behind or would falling for him demand the ultimate sacrifice—herself?

Character interview with Katarina Everette

Interviewer: Hello Katarina, thanks for taking the time to talk with me today.

Katarina: Sure, but can we hurry it up. I have things to do.

Interviewer: Right, sure, my apologies.

Katarina: Don’t be sorry, just get on with it.

Interviewer: Okay, then.  You’re a very direct woman. Does it bother you that some people may find that off-putting?

Katarina: There’s nothing off-putting about being direct. My assumption is those who have a problem with it, are intimidated by strong, independent women.

Interviewer: Yes, well, some would say there’s a very distinct difference between being a strong woman and being a bitch.

Katarina: I don’t see that distinction. At times, you must be one to be the other.

Interviewer: I guess that could be true. But even as a strong, independent woman, is there anything you’d change about yourself?

Katarina: Are you joking? I’ve been described as beauty personified. Why in God’s name would I change anything?

Interviewer: It was just a hypothetical…

Katarina: No, it was stupid. Moving on, next question.

Interviewer: Wow, all right. What quality do you find most attractive in a man?

Katarina: Confidence. He either has it or doesn’t, but if he wants to go toe to toe with me, he best have it.  I deplore men who are self-conscience about anything. I don’t have time to boost a man’s ego.

Interviewer: Do you often find men are intimidated by you?

Katarina: Of course they are. No man wants to be put in his place by a woman.

Interviewer: Do you find dating difficult then?

Katarina: I suppose. It doesn’t bother me though, if that’s what you’re getting at. I’ve never defined myself through a relationship. I don’t need companionship to feel whole.

Interviewer: It almost sounds as if you find relationships and companionship to be a hindrance.

Katarina: They can be, especially if one is tied to the wrong person.

Interviewer: What about the right person? If you truly care for someone, one could hardly describe that person as a hindrance. Haven’t you ever been in love?

Katarina’s disposition softens slightly.

Katarina: A couple times. Neither time ended well. I’m not sure it was worth the exposed vulnerability though. In my experience, that vulnerability only led to being taken advantage of.  (Katarina’s demeanor hardens again) I’m no man’s doormat.

Something tells me, she’s no one’s doormat- male or otherwise.
