I really appreciate your help spreading the word about my book. Please email me a request to andreabizderiwhelan@gmail.com with your Netgalley username and I will forward it to Patchwork Press that listed 14 Days to Die on Netgalley. I will also send a personal email about your request to the publishers associate I've been in contact with.

“I looked at Victor, my heart swelling from the emotion. “When I die, please do the same ceremony for me,” I whispered, choking up. “This is the most captivating and emotional event I have ever been part of.”
“I’m afraid you’ll have to ask somebody else for that because if you die before me I won’t survive it.” He kissed the tip of my nose. I gazed at him with so much love that my heart almost burst out of my chest.”
A.B.Whelan, Valley of Darkness Part 1 & Part 2

“I don’t know who those other people are and what they did to you, but I’m not one of them,” I whispered, on the verge of tears. (Molly)
“You are. You just don’t know yet.” (Victor)”
A.B.Whelan, Fields of Elysium

“See? Instead of thinking of a way to help my people, all I can think of is the smell of your hair and that small dimple on your cheek when you smile.” (Victor)”

“Oh, God … you’re so beautiful,” I said in a weak voice, my head enchanted. He smiled at me and turned to the thin, elderly lady next to him whose skin seamed with wrinkles.“She must still have a fever,” Victor said, fighting a smile, which just made him even more breathtaking.”
