Toxic Blog Tour: Author Interview

Today I have the wonderful Jus Accordo author of Touch and Toxic which are the first two books in the Denzan series. I'm taking part in the Toxic blog tour and Jus was kind of enough to do an interview! Hope you enjoy! She describes the third book in the series in one word and it sure makes me curious what happens! Hope you enjoy the interview! And there maybe a giveaway at the end of this'll just have to scroll down to find out! ;)

Novel Nerd: Can you remember the book that sealed the deal for your love of

Jus: That’s easy! Bunnicula by James Howe.  :D

Novel Nerd: When did you know that Touch was the story that needed to be written
then and there?

Jus: I got the idea early one morning while waiting in line for coffee. By dinnertime that night, it was all I could think about. Like, the idea kept poking me. I started bright and early the next morning!

Novel Nerd: Was the idea for Touch something that took a while to develop or did
the story and its characters come to you right away?

Jus: It really all started with an opening scene (not the one that ended up in the book) and went from there. There wasn’t any plotting or developing. It just kind of unfolded as I went.

Novel Nerd: Your book covers are all so fantastic! If you had to pick one of
them as a favorite which would you pick?

Jus: Oh, no way… I’m kind of crazy-in-love with all of them. To pick one over the other? GAH. No… Kale is, well, *wipes drool* Kale. And Dez is so seriously awesome… I cannot wait to get a peek at the cover of book 3!

Novel Nerd: The name Deznee is pretty unique. What made you pick that name for
your character?

Jus: I’d love to say there’s some awesome story behind it, but I think it was mostly just a random thought. I liked the nickname Dez and went from there J

Novel Nerd: Can you describe book three in the series in one word?

Jus: Mind-blowing. Hyphens count as one word! :P


Novel Nerd: Thanks for doing the interview Jus! :)

Jus: Thank you for having me! This was a blast :)

When a Six saved Kale’s life the night of Sumrun, she warned there would be consequences. A trade-off. Something taken for the life they gained. But Dez never imagined she’d lose the one thing she’d give anything to keep… And as if it’s not enough Dez finds her immunity to Kale fading, the Six brought in to help Kale learn to control his killer touch starts drooling on him the moment they meet. Worse than that? Jade can touch Kale. But bimbo Barbie is the least of Dez’s problems.
After Dez and Kale got away at Sumrun, her father lost not only his most powerful weapon but an important piece of the Supremacy project. Forced by Denazen to remedy the situation, he poisons Dez and offers her a choice—surrender to Denazen for the cure…or die. Determined to find a solution that doesn’t involve being bagged and tagged—or losing someone she loves—Dez keeps the poison a secret.  But when a rash of Denazen attacks hit a little too close to home, Dez is convinced there’s a traitor among them. Jade.
Sacrifices, broken promises, and secrets. Dez will have to lay it all on the line if there’s any hope of proving Jade’s guilt before they all end up Residents of Denazen. Or worse, dead…
