Obsidian Blog Tour! Character interview with Daemon Black

I'm happy to welcome author Jennifer L. Armentrout to For What It's Worth for the OBSIDIAN Blog Tour.

Today Jennifer will be sharing her interview with Dameon Black. Daemon is the incredibly hot but sometimes rude and frustrating alien from Obsidian, the first book in Jennifer's new Lux series. I really enjoyed Obsidian - my review will be up this week!

Take it away Jennifer and Daemon......

Jennifer L. Armentrout: Why are you five hours late?
Daemon Black: I thought you said 8pm.

JLA: No, I’m pretty sure I said 3pm. I even sent you a text message and email.
DB: Oh.

JLA: Yeah, and I also called you five times. Like a total stalker.
DB: I was sleeping.

JLA: You were sleeping until 8pm?
DB: I need my beauty rest.

JLA: Oh, yeah, like that’s something you need.
DB: So you think I’m beautiful? Huh, you do? It’s okay. Totally natural reaction.

JLA: We are NOT talking about how you look. This room isn’t big enough for your head. Got that?
DB: Fine, if that makes you feel better about being undeniably attracted to me.

JLA: Back to the real reason we’re here. People want to know.
DB: Know what?

JLA: Why you’re such a poopey head?
DB: Poopey Head? How old are you, Jen?

JLA: Old enough to kick your butt. So, tell us. Why are you always such a jerk?
DB: I’m not a jerk.

JLA: The masses beg to differ.
DB: Okay, so maybe I’m not a people person.

JLA: Why?
DB: Uh, I have poor social skills?

JLA: That’s like a psycho saying they are a sociopath because they have poor social skills.
DB: I don’t get it.

JLA: Basically that’s not a good enough reason.
DB: Sorry you don’t like my answer. Oh. Well.

JLA: There’s that attitude again.
DB: I like to think I have a glowing attitude. A real go getter.

JLA: You’re ridiculous. Back to the meanie part. Why were you so tough on Katy?
DB: Katy knows my reasons. I’m not saying it’s justified, but she knows why and that’s all that matters.

JLA: I think you love her.
DB: I think you need to mind your own business.

JLA: Oh, touchy, touchy, Daemon.
DB: You want to touch me?

JLA: That’s not what I said. Anyway, you have a lot of responsibility on your shoulders. Is that tough?
DB: It’s not like I’m the only one who shoulders their family. There are many like me in the same position.

JLA: But it’s got to be hard right, especially after—
DB: I know where you’re going with that and just don’t.

JLA: Ooo-kay. What’s it like being an alien?
DB: Cooler than being a human.

JLA: Can you say one nice thing, right now? About anything. Just something nice.
DB: Damn. Put on the spot like that…

JLA: Waiting…
DB: The first snowfall of the year is always the most beautiful.

JLA: Wow. That was kind of unexpected.
DB: I live to surprise you and only you.

JLA: Yeah, okay. Do you have anything you want to share with the readers?
DB: I like ghost shows.

JLA: Something a little deeper than that.
DB: Okay. If I could take away some of the things I said to Kat, well, I would.
Karen: Awwww

JLA: Now that’s actually kind of nice. Sort of like an apology.
DB: Ha-Ha.

JLA: I’m being serious.
DB: And I’m still laughing.

JLA: You are a poopey head.
DB: Yeah, are we done? I think Kat’s going to try to film an IMM tonight and I so have to bust up in that.

JLA: Yes. We’re done. Try not to tick Kat off. I’m sort of tired of hearing her complain about you.
DB: No promises.

JLA: Oh, wait, I have one more—dangit! I hate when he does that super-speed alien crap.

Karen: That Daemon is a tough one to pin down on anything isn't he? I can't wait to see what kind of sparks he & Katy create in Onyx which is tentatively scheduled for release in May 2012. I know you have one!

Thank you to both Jennifer & Daemon for stopping by the blog today!

About the Book:

When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I’d pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring…. until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.

And then he opened his mouth.

Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something…unexpected happens.

The hot alien living next door marks me.

You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon’s touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I’m getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.

If I don’t kill him first, that is.

Buy the book! Obsidian - (A Lux novel book 1)
