VIRTUAL BOOK TOUR [Interview + Giveaway!] Cursed by Trakena Prevost

by Trakena Prevost

Half-succubus Jazz Watkins spends her days navigating the halls of Moreland High and her nights knee deep in Chicago drug dens hunting Suecai – an evil kind of incubi and succubae who devour the souls of humans. But when a leader of the Suecai curses her, Jazz has to track him down. Either she kills him before the curse burns through her, or she’ll become a full-fledged, out of control, soul sucking monster.

She’s got a handful of weeks, absolutely no leads, and her sexy best guy-friend and team member, Khan, covering her back. But will the growing attraction she feels for Khan get in the way of her mission to save her own life?

What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?
Cookies and Cream. It’s the best when paired with rainbow sprinkles. I’m not sure when I decided to try it that way, but now that I have, I refuse to stop!

What is your favorite thing to eat for breakfast?
It depends on if I’m being healthy or not. If it’s a healthy then I’m going with whole wheat waffles with non-fat greek yogurt and blue berries. If not, I’m going with bacon, egg, and cheese tacos!

Night owl, or early bird?
Night owl all the way…but my years of working early hours is starting to change that.

One food you would never eat?
Guacamole. I can’t get over the color and the look of the texture.

Skittles or M&Ms?
If we’re talking peanut M&Ms, then M&Ms!

When you were little, what did you want to be when you "grew up"?

You have won one million dollars what is the first thing that you would buy?
I’d pay off my student loans. Loans in this country are a bear to wrestle with, and I’d love to have that done with. Then I can invest and buy some fun stuff.

Print or Ebook?
Ebooks. I love print books, but have a habit of liking to carry too many, so Ebooks it is!

What movie are you looking forward to this year?
Mockingjay! Definitely Mockingjay!

Finish the sentence! one book I wish I had written is....
Harry Potter.

What is next on your to read list?
I want to try the Delirium series by Lauren Oliver.

Any other books in the works?
I’m outlining the second book to the Guardian Chronicles in which Jazz is tempted beyond her imaginings. I’m also working on a NA that involves casters!

Trakena Prevost was born and raised in the great state of Texas, where everything IS bigger and the people are very friendly. She spends most of her time oscillating between being completely obsessed with reading and Korean dramas (to her wonderful boyfriends chagrin) and writing down the fantastic tales rumbling around in her head. When not reading and writing, Trakena spends her time working in HR for a major medical system in Houston, and hanging out with her family and friends.

Trakena has always loved the many worlds she's found in books, where everything was possible. As a child, you would often catch her enjoying a good story in the comfort of the AC, instead of wilting in the Houston heat (she showed great intelligence...even then). It didn't occur to Trakena that the fanciful stories she made up for fun could one day be out in the world, but now that they are she can't imagine it any other way!
