Faceless Blog Tour with author interview



UPDATEDFaceless500My name is Brandt Cross, and I died. Again…

I'm living in the body of a Six named Douglass Cain, a certifiable scumbag whose ability is on Zendean Industries—AKA Denazen's—most wanted list. There’s some serious bad going down, and Ginger, the leader of the Underground, sent me undercover to obtain information because people are dying.

My cousin, Dez, is dying…

Denazen thought they’d found a cure for the Supremacy decline, but they were wrong. That’s the bad news. The good news? Franklin Wentz.

Wentz, the owner of a genetic research company, is brilliant and just a little bit crazy. He’s unwittingly created a formula that may cure the sick Supremacy kids, and everyone wants it—including Devin, the super hot Resident.

Get the formula. Save the day. Don’t fall for the hot spy. Piece of cake.

Author Bio

JusAccardoJus Accardo spent her childhood reading and learning to cook. Determined to follow in her grandfather’s footsteps as a chef, she applied and was accepted to the Culinary Institute of America. At the last minute, she realized her path lay with fiction, not food, and passed on the spot to pursue writing.

Jus is the bestselling author of YA paranormal romance and urban fantasy fiction.

A native New Yorker, she lives in the middle of nowhere with her husband, three dogs, and sometimes guard bear, Oswald. Her first book, Touch was released in November 2011 from Entangled Publishing. She is currently working on the next book in the Denazen series.

Hi Jus, welcome to Booky Ramblings, thank you for taking the time to do this interview.

Thanks for letting me hang out for awhile!

First off tell us a little bit about yourself.

Hmm... Short and sweet...

Likes: writing, reading, coffee, World of Warcraft, cheese, dogs, and the outdoors.

Dislikes: Asparagus, flavoured coffee, airplanes, the word auntie, spiders, and the color yellow.

What inspired you to write your first book?

When I was a kid, I started rewriting the ends of books when I didn’t like the way they ended. At twelve, I was like, huh, I should try this from the beginning, and I did. I wanted to read a story about a dog and a horse—so I wrote one. I actually still have it, though it will never see the light of day. My husband has made it his life’s goal to find it. Muhahaha. He’ll never find it. ;D

What was one of the most surprising things you learned in creating your books?

How much work actually goes into getting a book out into the world. The author writes the book, but that’s just the beginning. So many people are involved in the process from start to finish. It really does take a village...

How long does it take you to write a book?

It’s different each time. TOUCH took less than a month to write, while TOXIC took three. There are so many factors. The individual story, time of year (I’m easily distracted in the summer and fall :D ), and lately, other projects. Like right now for example I’m working on two different books.

Can you share a little of your current work in progress with us?

Hmm. My editor will kill me if I say too much ;) I can tell you it’s called RUINED and it’s a NA that’s kind of dark and that I’m totally and madly in love with the characters.

Describe Brandt Cross, in 5 words.

Loyal, sweet, determined, funny, and passionate.

What is your work schedule like when you’re writing?

I usually sit down at the computer between 5 and 6 a.m. (with coffee, of course) then work till about eleven. I take a couple hours, run errands, and then work till about eight or nine. It sounds insane, but it’s really not bad because I LOVE my job.

Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?

Thank you. An infinity of thank you. You guys make doing what I do worthwhile.

Which authors would you say inspired you to write?

There are so many, but I think the main ones are Mary Stanton and Rob Thurman. Kind of opposite ends of the spectrum, huh?

Now we have some random questions for you if you have the extra time.

If someone wrote your biography, what do you think the title should be?

A day in the life of a caffeine addict

What book are you currently reading?

Slashback by Rob Thurman

What is in your fridge right now?

Um, not much. Poor thing is starving right now. There’s cream for coffee, and I think there might be some cheese. I’m not sure how long it’s been there. It’d old though. Like, it could walk out the door on its own, kind of old...

Favourite Ice Cream flavour?

Chocolate/vanilla swirl

Cats or dogs?


Pet Peeves?

Coffee grinds!

And finally, since I’m a little obsessed with the upcoming Zombie Apocalypse, your house is under attack and you only have time to grab 3 things, what do you grab?

Hmm... Well I’d say my computer, but the world is probably going to spiral into chaos so there won’t be any internet. I think I’d have to go with my emergency bag (packed, of course, in anticipation of said apocalypse) my dogs, and my lucky stuffed llama, Floyd.
