Arise by Tara Hudson Blog Tour

Please help me welcome Tara Hudson, author of Arise (Hereafter #2)! She’s stopping by today to share a character interview with Joshua, for the Arise Blog Tour hosted by Mundie Moms. As part of the tour Tara and HarperTeen are giving away a signed set of the Hereafter series, read on for more details!

Amelia—still caught between life and death—must fight for every moment of her relationship with the human boy Joshua. They can hardly even kiss without Amelia accidentally dematerializing. Looking for answers, they go to visit some of Joshua’s Seer relatives in New Orleans. But even in a city so famously steeped in the supernatural, Amelia ends up with more questions than answers…and becomes increasingly convinced that she and Joshua can never have a future together.

Wandering through the French Quarter, Amelia meets other in-between ghosts, and begins to seriously consider joining them. And then she meets Gabrielle. Somehow, against impossible odds, Gaby has found a way to live a sort of half-life…a half-life for which Amelia would pay any price. Torn between two worlds, Amelia must choose carefully, before the evil spirits of the netherworld choose for her. (Goodreads)

Character Interview with Joshua

There’s a lot that you and Amelia both have had to deal with over the course of this series, and we’ve come to admire the strength you both have. In what ways has Amelia changed you?

I’ve never really been afraid of what my friends thought of me, but I’m even less so, now. Amelia makes me braver, too – you’d have to be, to go through some of the things that come with dating a ghost

How would you describe your family in 3 words or less?

Stubborn, fierce, loving

Without giving too much away, what was one of your favorite moments with Amelia in ARISE?

I just have one word for you: etoufee.

What’s one of your favorite things to do when you have down time?

It’s a toss up between playing baseball and reading. I love both, so I hope that I can one day become a sports writer, maybe for ESPN. If I don’t get killed by sadistic demons before college, obviously

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

Out of college, figuring out my life…and hopefully still seeing Amelia. I always have hope for that.

Tara HudsonAuthor Bio (from Goodreads): Born and raised in Oklahoma, Tara Hudson graduated with a degree in law, mostly because she believed all the horror stories about English majors and their careers in the food-service industry. Luckily, she soon remembered how much she loved telling ghost stories, particularly to her girlfriends who liked visiting abandoned cemeteries as much as she did. Tara currently lives in Oklahoma with her husband, son, and a menagerie of ill-behaved pets.
