Character Interview with Will Killian of The Ghost and the Goth + Giveaway

Ladies and gentlemen, I would freaking love to introduce to you our very, very special guest for tonight - and not to mention the first ever! Will Killian of Stacey Kade's The Ghost and the Goth is here to answer some of my random questions. So, everyone, let's give it up for Will!! *plays recorded audience applause*

Mithee: Hello, Will! How are you doing?
Will: Things are...interesting. How are you?

Me: Oh, I'm fine. Kind of nervous, is all. How about Alona? Is she bossing you around? She didn’t make you paint your room pink, did she? Wait… is she staying at your house?
Will: *sigh* Alona does what Alona does. I've figured out that trying to stop her should really only be reserved for emergencies. My room is not pink. Pink is apparently not in my color palette, whatever that means. Thank God.

Does she stay here? Uh...next question. :)

Me: Uh... okay. *clears her throat* What sort of things do you often do together?
Will: Honestly, we're pretty busy these days, not a lot of free time. We've got the list of ghosts that Alona is in charge of and we're trying to help them as best as we can. Plus, I'm picking up a few hours a week as a bus boy at the diner where my mom works. But when we have free time, it's not easy to go anywhere together. I can't exactly talk to her out in public and as I'm sure you can probably guess, Alona does not take kindly to being ignored. So sometimes we stay in and watch movies on my computer. She'd never seen The Matrix. Or the original Star Wars movies. Can you believe that?

Me: Actually, I can. Um, anyway, do you get offended when people mistake you as a goth?
Will: People are always going to see what they want to see, whatever makes the world fit into a neat box for them. It doesn't bother me except when people get upset that I'm not behaving the way they think I should, based on assumptions they've made about me.

Me: What do you like the most about Alona?
Will: Is she going to see this? Because if she's going to see this...well, let's just say she cannot EVER see this. It would just go to her head, and I seriously do not need my life to be more difficult.

Me: I think I see Alona peeking over your shoulder... kidding! :D
Will: I think Alona is brave. She assesses the situation, makes a decision, and charges forward. It might not always be the right decision. But she does what she thinks is best and she has the courage to follow through with it. She's been through a lot in her life. She may not have handled it all in the right way, but you can't fault her on the strength of her convictions.

Me: What do you don’t like the most about Alona?
Will: Where do I begin? Judgmental, shallow, selfish...take your pick.

Also? That answer is another one she probably shouldn't see. I would like to live through this, if at all possible.

Me: Hey, she's peeking again! Anyhow, here's a more serious question: How does it feel like being Will Killian?
Will: Well, I've never been anybody else, so I'm not sure how to answer that exactly. :) Sometimes all of this--being me--isn't easy, but other people have it worse.

Me: If you were a character from a book -a different one-, what book would it be and which character would you rather play? Why?
Will: Is there a book where the guy's life is perfect, to the point where it's almost boring because everything ends up going his way? That book. I want to be that guy...for a change.

Me: If you could star in a movie, what movie would it be?
Will: Indiana Jones and the Raiders of Lost Ark.

Me: What’s the most embarrassing thing you’ve ever done?
Will: I'm surrounded by ghosts who shout and shove at me. My whole life is pretty much a series of public humiliations. But if you're talking about something I've done willingly...there may have been a karaoke incident at my uncle's wedding. But there were extenuating circumstances: it was late, there may have been some stolen champagne (the ghost of a dead relative, some second cousin I'd never even met who'd died in a 4-wheeler accident, just would not leave me alone), and it was Journey. How can you not rock out to Journey?

Me: *Hums Don't Stop Believing* Describe your first kiss.
Will: Sarah Kingsley. Kindergarten. She used to live across the street. It was summer and we were eating red Otter Pops. Kissing seemed like a good idea at the time. I have no idea why. Frankly, it was really, really cold and kind of sticky, as I recall.

Me: Who’s your favorite cartoon character?
Will: The Roadrunner

Me: Do you think Robert Pattinson is hot?
Will: Who? Just kidding. That guy is everywhere. Do I think he's hot? Uh, he's not really my type. I prefer blondes. ;)

Me: What part of your body do you think is the most attractive? Why?
Will: I have no idea. :) Ask Alona. She seems to have fairly strong opinions about my teeth.

Me: Is that why you keep smiling? :D Anyway, here's my last question. The most serious one of all: If I were holding a marker right at this moment, would you sign my back? *hands him the marker* *grins*
Will: Um, sure. Just...uh..okay. Hold still. This is sort of awkward...And you're laughing. This is going to be a terrible example of my penmanship.

Me: What are you talking about? You have osum penmanship! And I wasn't laughing. It was just a bit.. ticklish. *hugs her back* I am never going to wash my back again. Ever.

Haha! Thanks so much Will for visiting our blog! *wipes sweat on forehead* That was intense! But, moving on. Since I love this book so much, I decided to spread its awesomeness and host a.... GIVEAWAY! Yep~ please CLICK HERE to head over the giveaway page.
