I would like to welcome JUS ACCARDO author of TOUCH , to Novels On The Run and thank her for taking the time to answer some questions for my interview.

Jus: Thanks so much for inviting me.

Michelle:  What song would you use to describe Kale and Dez’s relationship?

Jus: Buckcherry - Bliss

Michelle:  It was fun seeing a short description of your book in another author’s book I just recently read. Are you able to give me a non spoiler quote from Toxic, book 2 in this series?

Jus: If you mean a blurb, then I don’t have one to share just yet, but I can toss out a quote from the book.

Dez to Alex : I’d smack you stupid but someone obviously beat me to it…

Michelle: Are you bringing any new characters to Toxic? If so , are you able to describe one of these characters only in 5 words or less, we don’t need a name, necessarily. It could be fun for the readers to try to work this character out.

Jus: There are several new characters. One of the main ones…hmmm… Smart, mischievous, sneaky, mysterious, and gifted.

Michelle:  Casting! I have read that you liked Ben Barnes for Kale but were most happy with the guy on the front cover, who currently is nameless. Did you find out his name? Could you please give us any casting thoughts you had for the following characters:

Jus: I wish I knew who he was. Wherever he is though, he’s got a lot of fans now!

Kale – Ben Barnes (or of course, hot nameless cover dude ;) )

Deznee – Avril Lavigne

Brandt – Steven R McQueen (blond and grunged, of course!)

Misha Vaugn – Natalie Portman

Alex Mojourn – I really don’t know about this one. Anyone have any suggestions?

Sueshanna - Charlize Theron

Dez’s dad – Daniel Craig

Michelle:  Kale’s novella. Can you tell us when that may be available. I am rather keen to read his POV.

Jus: I believe it’s out in February

Michelle: Dez is an adrenaline junkie, what is one thing you would love to do but are too frightened to do it?

Jus: I would seriously love to sky dive, but I’m terrified to fly.

Michelle: Thankyou for taking the time to answer these questions we wish you all the best with Touch and look forward to Toxic.

Jus: Thank you! This was fun:D

Author Bio:

Jus Accardo is the 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, is due out in November 2011 from Entangled Publishing. She is represented by Kevan Lyon of Marsal Lyon Literary Agency.

Touch Blurb:

"When a strange boy tumbles down a river embankment and lands at her feet, seventeen-year-old adrenaline junkie Deznee Cross snatches the opportunity to piss off her father by bringing the mysterious hottie with ice blue eyes home.
 Except there's something off with Kale. He wears her shoes in the shower, is overly fascinated with things like DVDs and vases, and acts like she'll turn to dust if he touches her. It's not until Dez's father shows up, wielding a gun and knowing more about Kale than he should, that Dez realizes there's more to this boy - and her father's "law firm" - than she realized.

Kale has been a prisoner of Denazen Corporation - an organization devoted to collecting "special" kids known as Sixes and using them as weapons - his entire life. And, oh yeah, his touch? It kills. Dez and Kale team up with a group of rogue Sixes hellbent on taking down Denazen before they're caught and her father discovers the biggest secret of all. A secret Dez has spent her life keeping safe.

A secret Kale will kill to protect."
