I would like to welcome DENVER BECK aka BECK from 'The Demon Trappers' series , to Novels On The Run.
I will also be telling you about a chance to win one of four Forbidden/Soul Thief gorgeous bookmarks made by Miss Suzi at the end of the interview.

* nervous giggle* I’m interviewing Beck, he doesn’t know how much of a fan I am. I even have a t-shirt that says Team Beck  on the back.

Michelle :   G'day Beck, I have to admit, if there was casting for 'Forsaken' , The Demon Trappers movie ( hypothetically speaking as there is no movie....YET!!!) I have always thought Lucas Black would make a wonderful Beck.... now I don’t know if you have noticed, but, you have grown rather popular amongst the ladies, how do you feel about being called Beck, we seem to have forgotten your name is Denver. What do you prefer?

Beck :  Paul used to call me Den, but Beck works for me. Don’t have a middle name like most folks. I don’t know about all these ladies who think I’m popular, but hey, if they like me I can live with that.

Michelle :   Is there something you have kept totally secret from Riley that you would be willing to reveal to me?

Beck:  I’ve got one secret but if I tell you, she might find out, so I won’t say what that is. Riley doesn’t know that I was engaged once. Her name was Caitlin and she was from North Carolina. We met in the Army right before I was sent overseas. It didn’t work out.

Michelle: * jaw drop*

Michelle :  I hear you love Taylor Swift and her music, what would be your favourite song of hers?

Beck:  She’s got so many good ones. My favourite is 'I’m Only Me When I’m with You',  because it reminds me of... well.... someone.

 Michelle: Oooo! I wonder which someone, Riley or Caitlin?

Michelle :   What do you like to do to prepare yourself for a night out catching demons, do you have a particular song you like to put on in the car...?

Beck:  Sometimes I listen to Taylor’s songs or some of Carrie Underwood’s music. If I’m feelin’ really rowdy I crank up The Devil Went Down to Georgia by Charlie Daniels. He totally nails it. And the good guy wins for a change. ::laughs::

Michelle:   You are a pretty serious guy around Riley, is there a softer side. I can’t help noticing that Taylor Swift’s songs are about love, romance and growing up?

Beck:  Paul said I’m a softie inside, but I don’t see it. I guess every guy is hopin’ to find the right girl, the one that’ll stay with ya forever. I’ve not had good luck that way, but who knows maybe someday I will and then life will be good.

Michelle : Awww, feeling all fluttery.

Michelle:  What 5 words would you use to describe Riley, honestly, from your heart?

Beck:  Riley’s pretty. Not real flashy like, but good-on-the-eyes pretty. She’s fearless and stubborn. Oh lord, she’s even more stubborn than I am (shakes head). She truly cares about people. And she’s way smart. Sometimes that gets her in trouble, but she doesn’t hide it like some girls do. Is that five? I lost count.

Michelle :  Errrr, yup, I think so...but too busy looking at Beck, he is sooo purrrttty.

Michelle:   What goes through your head when you are killing a grade 3 or 5 demon?

Beck:  Mostly I think about not gettin’ dead. If I have to kill ‘em, I just try to do it quick. Killin’ a Five is real dangerous. Trappin’ one is nearly impossible. The best ya can do is ground the damned thing and hope it goes away.

Michelle:   Jana has made you work hard to keep up with Riley and her stubborn personality. You’ve got a couple more books at this stage with Riley, what do you do to keep fit?

Beck:  I exercise every mornin’ and I don’t drink as much beer as I used to. Sometimes, if I can’t sleep, I’ll load up my backpack and go for a run. I got used to doin’ that in the Army and it helps me get my head straight. Sure gets some notice from the cops though.

Michelle:  I'm sure I would be noticing too.

Michelle:   What does a bachelor guy like yourself, do for down time?

Beck:  I go to the Armageddon Lounge to shoot some pool. It’s usually pretty quiet and nobody hassles me there. Sometimes Lenny the necro drops by and we play a game or two. He’s not as good as me, but for a guy who summons the dead and dresses so weird, he’s okay. Sometimes I meet a girl at one of the bars and well... yeah, ya know.

Michelle :  Errr...I know...* fans oneself*

Michelle:   If somebody was to buy you a birthday present, what would be the best gift they could buy you?

Beck:  That’s a hard one. I have all Taylor Swift’s albums. I got a nice house, a pickup and decent job, so I don’t need much. Not that it could happen, but havin’ Paul back among the livin’ would be the best present I could ever get.

Michelle:  Yes,  that would be a wonderful present for Riley too.

Thank you Beck for spending the time chatting with me today, according to my countdown widget, it is 3 days until 'Forbidden'  is released in the UK , I hope Jana takes you out to celebrate the release.... if not...I could always ...well...*blushes*...take you for a champas.... clinkies:D

Thanks again and I‘ll be looking for you in 'Forbidden'...wink..wink.

  1. Thank you very much for this giveaway! :) These bookmarks are really awesome!
    I haven´t read books by Jana Oliver yet so I can´t picture character so I can´t decide who would I cast. But I have it on my to-be-read pile so I am gonna read it soon. :)
    I am your old GFC follower. Thanks for making it international too.

  2. I have yet to read the book but I can honestly say that you are right when you say that Lucas Black has a beautiful Southern drawl. I think he'd be awesome in the role! He's also an amazing actor. I love him! Awesome contest and equally awesome interview!

  3. I haven´t read the book yet so I can´t imagine characters...

    Thank you for the chance to win!

  4. I have read the first book--"The Demon Trapper's Daughter" and have "Soul Thief" on pre-order (I'm from the US).

    I love Riley and Beck but who I envision them as aren't real people--they are just pictures that my mind created from the descriptions in the book.

    Plus, I don't know of any actors in the right age I thought of Josh Lucas, Reese Witherspoon, etc. but they aren't in the correct age category.


  5. Wow, ladies that haven't read Jana's book really need to. The interview was great. My Denver would have to be Channing gorgeous! Riley is a little harder. I will have to say maybe Selena Gomez or Vanessa Hudgens. Maybe even Chloe Moretz. I would love a movie version!!

  6. I LOVED The Demon Trapper's Daughter (US) and at the time, I couldn't really cast Beck. He was hard to cast in my head but that guy you have....OH, MY. So, I guess I'll go with him. :) As for Riley....Emma Roberts.

  8. Thanks for the giveaway! :) I haven't read the book yet, so I can't decide who to cast. I'd probably go with an unknown. I like seeing new faces. Gorgeous bookmarks.

  9. haha what a great interview! i LOVED it! and is it me or did Beck get even more hotter in Forbidden?

    I'd pick Matt Bar(Plays Dan Patch in Hellcats) to play Beck and i'm not sure about Riley . . that's a hard one!

  10. Hi everyone:D

    @Tasnim nice choice but I could see him as Simon too..ha!..he is very beautiful too.

    @kristina#39;sBooks&;more : You must read Forsaken...just loved it..there's also a sexy mysterious Ori.

    @janhvi Forsaken is so worth a read.

    @pearl Emma Roberts sounds cool for Riley..she can play the part. Now I have seen Jennifer Lawrence given the makeover for The Hunger Games..I think she could bve Riley too.

    @Darella Yes Channing is one of my fave yummy actors and he can really act too...he is a candidate for sure!!

    @Sapphyria.. It is hard to think who would look right in a movie adaptation..this is why I am having so much trouble with Riley. I just got hooked on Lucas Black the minute I started getting a feel for Beck...just gorgeous!

    @Jeanne, Great Minds Think Aloud Book Club, Nikita...when you do have a read , I hope you can find a fave face to hold onto when reading. I loved thinking of Lucas as Beck, made the read even more yummy:D

    Thanks for your currently all have a very high chance of winning with probability and all that maths stuff....In less than one day Forbidden is released in UK...lucky peeps...sigh....OZ and USA 1st loooonnngggg!!!

    Have a great day everyone!!


  11. I'm reading the 2nd book right now so I keep picturing Beck as someone like Jensen Ackles (from Supernatural) but I suck at imagining characters as actors
