Blog Tours
Today I am pleased to be a part of the Inbetween Blog Tour with Tara Fuller.
"Tara Fuller writes novels. Some about grim reapers. Some about witches. All of course are delightfully full of teen angst and kissing. Tara grew up in a one stop light town in Oklahoma where once upon a time she stayed up with a flash light reading RL Stine novels and only dreamed of becoming a writer. She has a slight obsession with music and a shameless addiction for zombie fiction, Mystery Science Theater, and black and white mochas. Tara no longer lives in a one stop light town. Now she lives with her family in a slightly larger town in North  Carolina where they have at least three stoplights."
Please take a few minutes to read the following interview and don't forget to also enter the contest below... good luck!
1) What inspired you to write stories for Young Adult readers?
I love writing YA because I love reading it. I love writing about first love and helping a character develop into the person they are supposed to be.

2) Can you tell me about your novel INBETWEEN?

INBETWEEN is about a grim reaper that falls in love with the girl he sent to reap.
Here’s the blurb:
Since the car crash that took her father's life two years ago, Emma's life has been a freaky-and unending- lesson in caution. Surviving countless "accidents" has taken priority over being a normal seventeen-year-old, so Emma spends her days taking pictures of life instead of living it. Falling in love with a boy was never part of the plan. Falling for a reaper that makes her chest ache and head spin? Not an option.
It's not easy being dead-especially for a reaper who is in love with a girl fate has put on his hit list not once, but twice. Finn's fellow reapers give him hell about spending time with Emma, but Finn couldn't let her die before, and he's not about to let her die now. He will protect the girl he loves from the evil soul hell bent on stealing her body, even if it means sacrificing the only thing he has left...his soul.

3) What can fans look forward to next?

INBETWEEN is the first book in the Kissed by Death series, so in 2013 they can look for book two in the series. Kissed by Death is a companion series, so the next book will be from Cash and Anaya’s POV.

4) What is your favorite aspect about the writing process?

It’s different with every book for me, but for Inbetween it was the research. I had to do quite a bit of research on the supernatural for this book. A little spooky, but very cool.

5) What is on your nightstand now?

Notepad, pen, and a copy of Insurgent by Veronica Roth.

6) What inspired you to write a story centered on a Reaper?

I knew I wanted to write a story where the boy was dead and the girl was alive. I’d say the idea for a reaper got stuck in my head after reader Rachel Vincent’s Soul Screamers series.

7) Without being spoilerish, what is your favorite passage of INBETWEEN?

There are so many scenes that I love, but here is one of my favorites from Finn’s POV. J

I ran an iridescent finger down her arm to her wrist, watched it scatter like stars across her skin. Her breath hitched in her throat. Her heart beat so hard the sound rippled through
me like a shock wave. When her eyes met mine, the amount of want in them nearly brought me to my knees. Even through the fear and anger she had to be feeling, I knew she felt what Ifelt. The connection. The warmth. The rightness of this moment.
“Tell me you feel it,” I whispered.
“I-I—”
“Do you?”
She released the breath she’d been holding. “Yes.”

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
