Blog Tour: Stacey Jay Interview

I'm thrilled to welcome STACEY JAY, author of so many fabulous books, to my blog today as part of her blog tour! Read on to find out about her reaction to The Locket's cover and to read a summary of her upcoming release, Juliet Immortal! Sounds awesome!

1. If Katie and Megan ever spent the day together what would they do?

I have no idea. Lol! Megan and Katie are from two entirely different worlds in my mind. I can’t imagine them doing much except sitting, staring at each other uncomfortably, and wondering what to do next.

2. What was your reaction to seeing your cover for the first time?

At first it wasn’t my favorite. I imagined Katie to be a lot less glamorous and the locket itself to be waaaaayyyy more scary looking (and not gold because I have a deep hatred of gold jewelry). But over the past few months, I’ve really come to like this cover. I had a mug made with the image and sip my tea from it every afternoon and look down and nod approvingly. I hope my readers find it intriguing.

3. Of all your novels is there a specific line or scene that really stands out to you?

The scene in THE LOCKET where Katie fails to save the boy in the tree (and the chapter after) was a very intense write for me. Very gut twisting. I’m also rather fond of the zombies on ice scene in UNDEAD MUCH? Zombies on ice are both terrifying and hysterical and I enjoy that mixture.

4. Is there an event in history you would like to be able to go back in time to and witness?

I’d love to observe a day in ancient Rome or Greece. It’s fascinating to think of such a developed society being around so long ago.

5. How do you come up with your character names?

I Google the year the character was born and search for something I like. (So lame. I know. I think if I wrote a fantasy I’d be more into the meanings behind the names and such.)

6. Can you share anything about your upcoming release, Juliet Immortal?

Yes! Here’s the flap copy (not yet final):

"These violent delights have violent ends

And in their triumph die like fire and powder,

Which as they kiss consume."

-Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare

The most tragic love story in history...

Juliet Capulet didn't take her own life. She was murdered by the person she trusted most, her new husband, Romeo Montague, a sacrifice made to ensure his own immortality. But what Romeo didn't anticipate was that Juliet would be granted eternity, as well, and become an agent for the Ambassadors of Light.

For seven hundred years, she's fought Romeo for the souls of true lovers, struggling to preserve the lives of the innocent, while Romeo fights to destroy true love. Juliet is resigned to her role on the fringes of human emotion…until the night she meets someone she's forbidden to love, and who Romeo, oh Romeo, will do everything in his power to destroy.


Thanks so much for stopping by Stacey! Be sure to visit her website for more exciting info about her and her books! I've read and loved three of Stacey's novels: You Are So Undead to Me , Undead Much? , and of course, her newest release, The Locket !


  1. That's an interesting way to find names.
    The Locket sounds interesting too - I've read Undead Much and loved it.

  2. I too must admit to using the census data.

    Although I mostly write fantasy. Which is actually much easier after a while. I can come up with an awesome name in seconds.

  3. That's interesting about the character names.

  4. I'm such a big fan of her books, so I'm pretty excited to read this book. Loving the description of Juliet Immortal!! Way too cool.


I love getting comments, so feel free to leave your thoughts :)
