In March of this year, WiDo released Deadly Kisses, a paranormal romance with a twist and the debut novel of New Hampshire author, Kerri Cuevas. The main character, Aiden Grant, is a grim reaper assigned to reap the soul of Bee, the girl he loved from afar while alive.
Reviewers loved Deadly Kisses: “… refreshing, full of surprises, poignant, and at times laugh-out-loud funny. Kerri Cuevas has created strong and fascinating characters, and her narrative style is captivating. This book has the right balance of love story and action, making it a killer combination.” (Cynthia Shepp Book Reviews) And from Pretty Deadly Reviews: “. . .mythology and world-building, and the plot was fast-paced and engaging. Definitely a recommended read for lovers of clean urban fantasy.”
WiDo Publishing is pleased to announce that the sequel to Deadly Kisses is now under contract and scheduled for release next year. WiDo’s acquisition editor Allie Maldonado has this to say about Cuevas’s writing: “Kerri has a voice that is fresh and young, very appealing to the readers of YA fiction. I believe she has a strong future ahead of her as a writer for teens.”
And Kerri Cuevas loves to write. She states, “I’ve wanted to write books since I was a kid, but I never dreamed that I actually would. And now, I will have two books published for the world to enjoy. This makes me ecstatic! I love being able to share more of Aiden and Bee’s life and world, and moving them ever closer to their goal of saving the afterlife.”
While taking care of her home and family and doing promotion on Deadly Kisses, Cuevas is writing the final installment in the Deadly Kisses trilogy. She says, “I also have a couple of other projects to work on when I need a change of pace from the depths of Hell. I definitely plan on sticking around for a while and seeing where my muse takes me. I love to entertain and spark readers’ imaginations!”
Kerri Cuevas was born and raised in Rhode Island. In 2005 she moved to New Hampshire with her husband, three kids, cats, and a rabbit named Hercules. When she’s not writing, she’s chasing chickens on her small farm or searching for the ultimate mac-and-cheese recipe. Kerri went to college for Early Childhood Education but now writes books for young adults full-time. Her storytelling stems from watching too many horror flicks as a teen, although she no longer needs to sleep with the lights on.
