Title: THE COLLECTOR: A DANTE WALKER NOVEL
.

Blurb:
.
Dante Walker is flippin' awesome, and he knows it. His good looks, killer charm, and stellar confidence has made him one of Hell's best--a soul collector. His job is simple, weed through humanity and label those round rears with a big red good or bad stamp. Old Saint Nick gets the good guys, and he gets the fun ones. Bag-and-tag.

Stealing souls is nothing personal. Dante's an equal opportunity collector and doesn't want it any other way. But he'll have to adjust, because Boss Man has given him a new assignment:

Collect Charlie Cooper's soul within 10 days.

Dante doesn't know why Boss Man wants Charlie, nor does he care. This assignment means only one thing to him, and that's a permanent ticket out of Hell. But after Dante meets the quirky, Nerd Alert chick he's come to collect--he realizes this assignment will test his abilities as a collector, and uncover emotions deeply buried.

Author Talk

Why do you write in the genre you write?:

Because there’s more room for excitement when you’re characters don’t have to worry about paying the mortgage, or going to a job they don’t love, or changing diapers, etc. Know what I mean chicken wing?

What other genres would you consider and why?:

I didn’t really consider other genres. But I bet doing a children’s book would be fun. Like the ones with pics? That’d be cool. Then again, I’d probably write too many make-out scenes.

Can you give us a hint of something else you’re working on?:

Hint: A race
