Video Trailer: Dying for a Living

Dying for a Living by Kory M. ShrumOn the morning before her 67th death, it is business as usual for Jesse Sullivan: meet with the mortician, counsel soon-to-be-dead clients, and have coffee while reading the latest regeneration theory. Jesse dies for a living, literally. Although each death is different, the result is the same: a life is saved, and Jesse resurrects days later with sore muscles, new scars, and another hole in her memory.

But when Jesse is murdered and becomes the sole suspect in a federal investigation, more than her freedom and sanity are at stake. She must catch the killer herself—or die trying.

Dying for a Living, the urban/contemporary fantasy novel by Kory M. Shrum, is available from, Amazon UK, and most online retailers.
