October's Paranormal romance characterfest with Juliana Stone

Welcome to Characterfest

Characterfest is a month long event where you’ll find a different character interviews written by the author each day. Each interview has a giveaway(s) make sure the giveaway is open to you and if so add a comment or question along with your email. I will close all giveaways at the end of the week and add the winners to the winners post on that Tuesday. Odds are if you won you’ll be hearing from me.

One thing I will ask is if you could please twitter or hit the facebook likes button on the post so that others can see the interview. I want to get these authors out to as much as I can and you’re my go between in this event.

I hope you enjoy each interview and please try to make it here each day to find out whom or what’s next. If this goes as planned I will be hosting this next year. 

Character Interview: Julian Castille

1. Tell us a bit about who you are and more importantly, what you are.

The name’s Julian Castille. I’m the oldest of three brothers—the others being Jaxon and Jagger—and yes, I guess my mother liked the letter J. Up until recently I ran our families company, Blue Heaven Industries, but then a bunch of shit happened and well, let’s just say I’m not really cut out for civilian life anymore.

What am I? Good question because sometimes I have no clue. Technically I’m a shape shifting jaguar and can trace my family lineage back to the era of the Aztec’s. But ah, after spending six months in hell I’m definitely a new kind of animal.

2. Are you close with your brothers?

Blood means everything to a Castille. I would die for my brothers and I know they would do the same. But do we have tea and cookies together? No.

3. Your brothers are warriors and yet I’ve read that you’re not. Can you explain?

Jaguar Warriors are a certain breed of shifter. Clan tattoos choose us when we’re young men and, well, Jaxon and Jagger both developed them. I did not. Sure they might be a little stronger or faster than me, but as far as I’m concerned the tattoos don’t mean shit. Besides, my woman has them and one warrior in a relationship is more than enough.

4. Ah, yes Jaden DaCosta. Can you tell us a bit about her?

What’s to tell? She’s one hell of a woman, a jaguar warrior in her own right and I thank god every day that she’s in my life. Without her I’d go mad and I don’t mean that figuratively….I mean it in a literal sense.

5. I know you’ve both had to deal with a lot of crazy stuff lately and I’m not sure what happened with your friend Declan O’Hara. Is he all right?

I haven’t seen Declan since Vegas. He and I…well, we both survived hell but unfortunately, his demons are still following him. I just hope he finds what he needs to survive before it’s too late.

Q. Too late?

He’s headed down a dark road and ah, he’s lost hope. So yeah, I’m concerned for him.

Q. What do you and Jaden do for fun?

You really want me to answer that? We’re basically newlyweds so you know, I’m still trying to get to know her and don’t take this the wrong way but I’d rather keep the personal shit out of this interview.

Q. Sure, sorry. So, you didn’t go back to the family business. What do you do now?
I hunt and kill the crap that would hurt the ones I love. The ones I call family. Jaden and I live in Mexico but we’re very much aware of the fragility that hangs over the human realm. Something dark is coming and without us, you humans have no hope.

Q. That sounds ominous. Can you elaborate?

If I did, I’d have to kill you and on that note I need to run.

Q. All right. Thanks for the convo.
