My Demonic Ghost - The Reapers Blog Tour Stop with Interview & Giveaway!


Hello Everyone and welcome to the start of the 'Staccato Publishing Autumn Family' book tour! Our first week we get to meet the lovely author Jacinta Maree and a look into her series 'My Demonic Ghost: The Reapers' book 2!! Check it out and make sure to enter the giveaway below! 

The Reapers by Jacinta Maree

Book Blurb:
The day you die is meant to be the end, but for 18 year old Jordon Hastings, his death was only the beginning.

In a dark and twisted world, lost spirits known as Reapers remain behind after death to help collect the spirits from the realm of the living. A new Reaper, Jordon struggles to accept his fate and lingers in the shadows of his mortal life. But when a demon wolf starts to live through his shadow, hunting his family and friends Jordon has no choice but to leave. As soon as he accepts his new role the truth behind the relationship between Reapers and Angelic Hunters is revealed. His loyalty is tested, making him choose between a corrupted God and a single Banished Spirit.


Could you tell potential readers about your book?
My current trilogy is a dark, YA paranormal about the lives of Demons and demonic spirits. From this point of view, the reader gets to stand side by side with a Banished Spirit by the name of Lock and his unfortunate host Rachael. The goal is to free the banished spirit from damnation by defeating the seven deadly sins and avoiding both mythical creatures such as Hunters and Reapers. The aim was to be different and get the audience to cheer on for the bad guy for once.

Is My Demonic Ghost part of a series?  If so, what do you foresee for the series?
It’s part of a trilogy and I have already completed both book two and book three (whoo hoo!). In each series we get to understand a different class of spirits (first book were the Banished, second book the Reapers, third book Hunters and Creators) and you grow to understand no one is purely good or purely bad, not even Angels and Demons.  Fed up with being locked in chains and denied freedom, the Reapers and Banished plan on taking down Heaven and snapping their restraints, allowing all spirits safety and freedom. I invite the reader to watch this world-changing war unfold through three different perspectives.

What do you like most about your characters, Rachael and Lock?
Rachael I admire her bravery and selfishness. You can bet your last dollar that if a demon spirit snatched me up in the middle of the night the last thing I would do is follow him into the depths of Hell. Rachael’s young, she’s fifteen years old but she is so self giving that it often gets her into trouble. Lock is enthusiastic, even though he makes silly mistakes he’s yearning to be accepted and a better person makes my heart melt. You get to watch him struggle, fall, climb back up and push to becoming someone worthy.

How does our world differ from the one you have created?
Demonic Ghost is set in urban times, so there’s all the common presences such as mobile phones and technology, public transport and normal social interactions. What’s so different about it is the interweaving of the spirit worlds. On the outside you would have no idea what’s really sitting just beyond the shadows. Once you’re experienced it for yourself, I promise you’ll be thinking twice before walking down a shadow infested hallway. I had a lot of fun creating domains where each of the Deadly Seven Sins would live. Each Sin is so completely different, that I had to create seven completely different environments and different experiences in each one.

How did the initial idea for My Demonic Ghost come about?
The philosopher Descartes had inspired me in one of his teachings. It was the theory of consciousness where he had question our perceptions and if there was a possibility we were being played a trick by a demon god. Originally the title of the book was My Demonic God, but I changed it to Ghost as ghosts were the main theme.
  
Where do you draw your inspiration from?
Pictures and music is my biggest inspiration. I’m always on deviant art where you can find my page: http://jacintamaree.deviantart.com/

Is there anything you are currently working on that you would like to share with us?
I have a few projects in the works. I’ve a fantasy novel that explores the story of giant Zodiac monsters living inside the bodies of children and the struggles of an infected girl tagging along with the Zodiac snake boy (Dusty Blood). I’m also in the middle of a Steam Punk paranormal novel that I’ve just recently signed with Literary Agent Eric Ruben, about the possibility of exchanging wishes for time (Time Weaver: Heart of Cogs).  I've got a Sci-Fi on hold for the time being till I figure out it's direction.

Favourite ice cream flavour?
RockyRoad! Best! *drools*
  
Who's your favourite book boyfriend?
I have to admit, I can’t help but fall the hardest for my own creations mainly because I spend so much time with them. My favourite is probably Sebastian from Dusty Blood the upcoming fantasy. He’s such a troubled soul that I automatically just want to reach out and help him. I mean com on, look at that face isn't he just so mysterious?

Where can you find the first book 'My Demonic Ghost'? Amazon / Smashwords / Kobo / B&N
