AFTERLIFE #4 (WHENAFTER) is finally going to be released!
Irene Dunphy opened her eyes. Confused, she looked around. Strong sunlight glinted on water, blinding her. Where the hell am I? She was standing on the side of a road—by a brown, marshy river. Cars rushed by on the causeway behind her. No, really, where the hell am I? And more importantly, how did I get here? Irene racked her brain. For a moment, she drew a blank. Then memory rushed in.
Fun Fact: Every book of the Afterlife series starts with Irene opening her eyes because common writing advice says to NEVER start a book with a character waking up or opening their eyes and I like to be contrary. So it became my own dorky little joke. Also, Irene has no memory of what happens whenever she moves from one "world"/plane of reality to another; every book basically starts with her "spirit"/essence re-coalescing as she "wakes up" on a new plane.
The ten-year anniversary of Hereafter's release will be in TWO WEEKS. How has ten years gone by????
When I started writing the AFTERLIFE series, I made a promise to myself and to my readers: I would finish the series. No cliffhangers. No waiting forever to find out how it all ends.
And I have broken that promise. And I kick myself every day for having done so - I take promises to myself and to my readers very seriously.

Join the Terri Bruce Afterlife Angels Street Team
If you have found your way to this page, I’m already more grateful than you can know. If you’ve come here, looking for information on joining my street team, then that means you like my work enough to want to tell others about it, and that is the highest compliment an author can receive. Thank you!
As a member of the Terri Bruce Afterlife Angels Street Team, you’ll meet other readers who enjoy paranormal fantasy stories, be able to earn monthly rewards, and hopefully have some fun (along with earning my eternal gratitude!).
Some of the prizes I’m offering exclusively to street team members are:
A chance to have a character named after you in my next book.
Autographed paperback books.
Exclusive Street Team swag packs including signed swag, badge ribbons, handmade shepherd hook book marks, and more
Sneak peaks of upcoming books
So what does being on a Street Team involve? Simply put, it involves spreading the word about my books and events. It can be as little as recommending my books to a friend all the way up to hosting a “meet the author” event in your home. Here are some of the things street team members do to help spread the word about my books
Talk the books up and share promo materials with friends & family to spread the word.
Buy my books the first week of release, which helps it get on the bestseller lists.
Ask your local library to order my books. Give the librarians the title, name and publisher.
If my books aren’t on the shelves, ask the bookseller to order it.
Take promo materials (bookmarks, postcards, etc) to your local stores, place them with the booksellers. You can leave them with libraries and even at coffee shops.
Take promo materials (bookmarks, postcards, excerpts, etc) to your local reader group, writer group or RWA Chapter to share with other members.
As your local book club to select my book to read (I’m happy to arrange a video chat with Book Clubs as well)
Feature interviews, reviews, excerpts, or my video trailer via your blog or website
Visit during online appearances (workshops, blog tours, chats, Facebook Party, etc)
Share your (honest) review of the book via Amazon, Barnes&Noble.com, and Goodreads
Share promotional offers, requests for blog tour hosts, contests and giveaways, requests for reviews, etc. via social media
Participate as little or as much as you want, and only do the things that you feel comfortable doing. Street Team members will earn points for their participation, which will earn them entries into a monthly Rafflecopter giveaway. There will also be a monthly “MVP Award” for the Street Team member who earned the most points. And there will be a small “Thank You” gift for all Street Team members who participated that month as well.
Remember, do whatever you feel comfortable doing, even if it’s just one thing. The most important thing is to have fun!
If this sounds like something you want to be part of, then you’re in luck— joining is easy! Just sign up here.
