IF I SHOULD DIE Blog Tour: Excerpt + Giveaway


I am so excited to be a part of this tour for IF I SHOULD DIE by Amy Plum, organized by the very lovely Mundie Moms. I fell madly in love with the characters and this series when I first met them in DIE FOR ME back in May 2011. Yes, DIE FOR ME was one of those books that I gave my off-the-menu six-star rating I loved it that much.

I had every intention of reading UNTIL I DIE the moment it released, but when I heard that the ending was killer I decided to wait until closer to the third book’s release before I dove in. Because I did not want to have to suffer the long wait for IF I SHOULD DIE. Not when….

No… I won’t reveal what happened at the end of UNTIL I DIE. If you haven’t yet read it and you still really want to know, you can get more than a hint from reading the description below for IF I SHOULD DIE.

And yes, I am soooo glad I waited. Because I just finished reading UNTIL I DIE and having to wait until May 7th for IF I SHOULD DIE‘s release is torturous enough. Waiting just the one week to find out what happens and how this series ends is going to be agony, I cannot imagine how those readers who finished UNTIL I DIE last year survived.

Of course I am heartbroken that this series is ending. I would have loved it to go on longer than a trilogy. Even with DIE FOR HER, a novella about Jules, to keep me entertained it will not be enough.


Once again I’ve rambled on and on about a book and series I adore in a post that shouldn’t be about my thoughts. I just can’t seem to help myself. I love the Revenants. I love Kate and Vincent and Jules. I love the Parisian setting… and I’m super curious to find out just what happens with Kate and Jules in New York in IF I SHOULD DIE.

For my stop on today’s tour I have a very short excerpt, which follows immediately below, that if you spend a little too much time thinking about, your imagination will run wild. There is also some information about the book, series and author and places to find them all online.

This tour also includes an awesome giveaway, which follows just a bit further down in this post. And yes it is international.

And if you have managed to read this far into my long intro, I am offering up for giveaway, to one commentator, one of the books in the Revenants series which I’ll order from Amazon or The Book Depository. Just leave a comment with which of the books you’d like to win and I’ll throw the names into Random on May 7th and announce the winner in the comments to this post.

Oh and one last thing… if you haven’t yet had the chance to meet Vincent, last year the author provided a character profile of her swoon-worthy character for a blog tour I was on. If you’d like to check that him out, it’s here.


The Excerpt

“Wanna take a walk?” Jules said, pushing himself up off the couch and walking toward me. “It’s my first time in New York, and if I don’t pass out from blood loss, I’d like to see a little bit. Would you do me the honor of being my tour guide?”

“But I shouldn’t leave….,” I began.

He took my hand and pulled me toward the door.


If I Should Die
If I Should Die (Revenants #3) by Amy Plum

Publisher: HarperTeen
Release Date: May 7, 2013
Series: Revenants


About the Book

I will not lose another person I love. I will not let history repeat itself.

Vincent waited lifetimes to find me, but in an instant our future together was shattered. He was betrayed by someone we both called a friend, and I lost him. Now our enemy is determined to rule over France’s immortals, and willing to wage a war to get what they want.

It shouldn’t be possible, none of it should be, but this is my reality. I know Vincent is somewhere out there, I know he’s not completely gone, and I will do anything to save him.

After what we’ve already fought to achieve, a life without Vincent is unimaginable. He once swore to avoid dying—to go against his nature and forsake sacrificing himself for others—so that we could be together. How can I not risk everything to bring my love back to me?

About the Author

Amy Plum is author of the International Bestsellers DIE FOR ME (an Indie Next List pick, Romance Times top pick, and recipient of a starred review from School Library Journal), UNTIL I DIE, and digital novella DIE FOR HER. The final book in the series, IF I SHOULD DIE, will be released in May 2013.

After being raised in Birmingham, Alabama, in a rather restrictive environment, AMY PLUM escaped to Chicago to an even more restrictive environment at a university that expelled people for dancing. (And where she was called to the dean’s office for “wearing too much black”.) After all of that restrictiveness, she was forced to run far far away, specifically to Paris, France, where she only wore black and danced all she wanted.

After five years in Paris, she ventured to London, where she got an M.A. in Medieval Art History, specializing in Early Sienese Painting (1260-1348) mainly because it promised almost no hope of finding a paying job afterward.

Amy managed to find work in the world of art and antiques in New York. But after almost a decade of high-pressure lifestyle in the Big Apple, she swapped her American city for a French village of 1300 inhabitants.

After signing with HarperCollins for the DIE FOR ME series, Amy left her job as an English professor at Tours University to write full-time. She now lives in Paris with her two kids and big red dog Ella.
