Coven and Coffin Blog Hop: Day 1!

The Sin Collector's Liliana Reveals Her Costume



The Coven and Coffin Blog Hop has begun! Stay tuned for daily for a new character costume from the main characters of our books. Each blog in the hop has a special treat in store for you from ghost stories, to recipes, and even a murder mystery!

First up, Liliana from Jessica Fortunato's The Sin Collector series reveals her costume this year:

Our first and only Halloween in Maine Julia had lured me into taking her trick-or treating. I had spent an hour expertly applying Zombie makeup to every inch of her exposed skin. Thank the Gods for online makeup tutorials because she looked amazing. I could hear Olexander in the living room with Julia rattling off arcane Samhain knowledge, and I could feel her eyes rolling. Finally, I put on the faux black rimmed glasses and went downstairs. Olexander and Julia’s faces crinkled in confusion as they took in my modest clothing, flat Mary Janes, neatly straightened and tightly pulled up hair. In my hands, I held a legal pad and a calculator. Olexander, never one to miss a beat, interjected what a lovely costume I’d made for myself. Julia no longer being able to hold in her thoughts let out a puff of air and an exasperated, “I don’t get it.”

“Don’t you see my legal pad and calculator? I’m a debt collector. Get it? Usually I’m a SIN Collector?”

I smiled widely, I’d been so clever.

Olexander couldn’t stop laughing long enough to make words. Julia shook her head as if she could not fit my answer inside her brain.

“It’s too late to help you now Lily.” Julia stood up patting my arm reassuringly. “Next year I’ll go to the costume shop with you.”

About the book

The Sin Collector follows the life of Liliana, a born Sin Collector. She has spent over 100 years absorbing people's sins so they may rest in peace come death. However when she meets another Collector, one who insists everything she has been taught is a lie, Liliana must make her way from sunny L.A. all the way to the streets of Madrid. Searching for answers to a question we all share. Why are we here? The friends and enemies she makes along the way only seem to blur the line between right and wrong. Can Liliana fight the Castus, an organization whose sole mission is to kill every Collector? Should she trust her head or her heart when the two most important men in her life are fighting alongside her? Then there is the worst question of all, who will be left when the dust settles?
