A Touch Morbid by Leah Clifford comes out tomorrow! A Touch Morbid is the sequel to A Touch Mortal, which is fantastic. If you haven’t read it yet, you totally should! I recently had the chance to interview a character from the book, Az. I hope you enjoy the interview!
1. What did you think the first time you saw Eden?
She was on the beach. She had this long hair and was kind of curled into herself, like she was hiding. I remember thinking there was something different about her even then. You know how sometimes you just kind of know? I tried to hit her up with this corny pickup line, joking around and she just decimated me. *smiles* That’s about when I knew she was for me.
2. What's your favorite book?
I don’t really get a lot of time to read these days. Every few decades there’ll be a few months of relative quiet and I’ll catch up on some of the better classics. Jekyll and Hyde. Dracula. Those types.
3. What do you think of your life being published?
I wish it wasn’t. Everyone makes bad choices, or says something they regret. Mine are there forever. People remember them and don’t understand that it’s different when you’re in the situation. There are so many things I would change if I could.
4. Who can you most relate to?
It’s gonna sound weird, but Eden’s roommate, Jarrod. At first I thought he was just this hardass kid, but I think we’re more the same than either of us wants to admit. We both want what’s best for the Siders. I think we both try to do what’s best, me for Eden and him for the group, and sometimes things go wrong.
5. What is your biggest fear?
I’d say losing Eden, but honestly, it’s becoming one of the Fallen. If I become one of them, I’d never be able to be with her. I wouldn’t only lose her though. I’d lose myself.
6. What is your biggest vice?
*glances away* Lying. I try to make things easier and it always starts out so small… I’m working on it. The truth is harder.
7. Where have you always wanted to travel to?
I’ve travelled a lot over time. If anything, I’m more for finding a place and settling down a bit. I don’t usually get the chance to get to know a city, have a favorite coffee shop before the place moves on. Little things like that. It’s just nice to feel comfortable somewhere.
