The Book



It all starts with this book! Spoiler Alert: You’re Gonna Die is a collection of questions provided by thousands of people just like you, and answers from our favorite coroner, Jacquie.

This is a meaningful and sincere book with a lighthearted, funny feel. Truly something only a coroner could write. In addition to answering all of your (umm, rather interesting) questions about death, we have laid out all of the options available to you when you die as well as a comprehensive list of key information to help your loved ones (and coroner!) handle your passing. This book is the perfect place to begin thinking about death, and life, in an entirely new way.

What are other people saying about Spoiler Alert: You’re Gonna Die?

“This book is unlike anything I have ever read before. In fact, I don’t think anything like this has ever been published before… Korttany Finn and Jacquie Purcell have taken a topic that is considered taboo to some people and presented it in such a way that it seems “normal.” This is a terrific accomplishment and, in my opinion, a very important step toward educating the general public.

It does not matter if you are 16, 36, 60 or even older, this book should be a MUST READ. Every one of us will experience death at some point in our lives, whether it is our own demise or that of a loved one. This book will help prepare you for dealing with it when it comes.

This book is utterly fascinating and strangely compelling. I was never bored reading this book. In fact, I found myself so engrossed in it that I finished the entire book in a single day.

I cannot emphasize enough how much I believe that every adult needs to read this book. After you finish the book you will know what things you should be discussing with those you love so that they will know what your wishes are after your death. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT and will help your loved ones and will ensure that your wishes for burial (or cremation, etc) are followed.”
