I had so much fun participating in this tour.  I love doing character interviews, because I get to learn a little more about them.

Title: Dazzle
Author: Amber Garza

Genre: Young Adult Paranormal Romance


Sixteen-year-old Delaney Scott possesses a special gift. Ever since she was a child she has known about her calling and the duty she’s expected to fulfill. However, all Delaney wants is to be normal. That’s why she is drawn to Sam. He can offer her the life she’s always desired. Only Sam has secrets of his own. Secrets that are deadly. Secrets that can change everything.

What The Characters Are Saying
I stay with Sam even though I know it's all wrong. No one else makes me feel the way he does. It's as if when I'm with him something dormant in me comes alive. -- Delaney

Falling for Delaney would completely ruin everything. But there's just something about her, you know? She's different than I expected. She has a way of getting under my skin, despite my best efforts to keep her at a distance. -- Sam

She can help him find redemption. He can give her the life she wants. But falling in love will change everything. -- Sam and Delaney

Interview with Delaney, Micah and Sam

1.  Can you three tell me a little about yourselves?
Delaney: I'm sixteen and I've lived in Edenly my entire life. I am an Ekloge Warrior, and that means that I have to a duty to protect my town. Only what I really want is to be a normal teenager.
Micah: I'm an Ekloge Warrior too, but I love my calling. My power is that I have superhuman strength, and --
Sam: Yeah, yeah, Superman, we get it. You're strong and powerful. Big deal. I'm sure the girl is really more interested in hearing about me. I'm Sam Peterson. I'm not a Warrior and I don't have any superpowers. But I do have one thing over Micah. I'm the one dating Delaney.

2.  Can you all explain your relationship with each other?
Delaney: Micah and I have been best friends since we were babies. Sam is the guy I'm kinda seeing. Well, I mean, I am seeing him. Just in secret since I'm not really allowed to go out with someone who isn't one of us.

3.  What are your hobbies?
Micah: Anything physical - running, hiking, working out.
Sam: I don't really have any hobbies. My old man owns an autoshop and when I'm not in school I'm usually working.
Delaney: I love to swim. Really I'm happy anytime I'm outside.

4.  If you can change one thing about yourself, what would it be and why?
Delaney: I'd give up my powers and duty, so I can do what I want with my life.
Micah: My temper, because it gets me in trouble.
Sam: I'd change my parents.

5.  If you could change one thing about each other what would it be and why?
Micah: I wish Delaney would embrace our calling.
Delaney: I wish Micah weren't so self-righteous all the time.
Sam: I wish Superman would get a life and leave Delaney and I alone.
6.  Can you all share a secret that no one knows?
Delaney: Well, before this interview most people didn't know Sam and I were seeing eachother.
Micah: I thought it was a secret that I'm in love with Delaney, but it seems that I'm more transparent than I realize.
Sam: I'm not sharing my secret with anyone.
7.  Favorite food?
Delaney: I love junk food - chips mainly.
Micah: I love comfort food that my mom cooks.
Sam: Pizza or a big greasy hamburger.
8.  If you could give us one piece of advice what would it be and why?
Micah: Embrace who you are. Don't try to be someone you're not.
Delaney: I get so tired of you saying that, Micah.
Sam: Seriously, Superman, can't you lay off for one day? You're not perfect, you know.
9.  If you could have any super power what would it be?
Micah: I'm happy with mine.
Delaney: I would want Micah's. Seeing into the future is cool, except that I'm not strong enough to do anything to prevent it.
Sam: Invisibility would be cool.
10. With what has happened in your lives, is there anything you would change?
Sam: Everything. My life sucks.
Micah: I would want Delaney to fall in love with me instead of that loser, Sam.
Sam: Gee, thanks a lot.
Delaney: I'd want these two to quit fighting all the time. Actually, I just wish I had the freedom to make my own choices.
11. Favorite quote?
Micah: Be yourself.
Delaney: Wow, what a surprise.
Sam: (chuckles)

12. Favorite book to read?
Delaney: I love any paranormal teen reads.
Micah: I don't have time to read.
Sam: Me neither.

13. Can you give us a little insight on the tattoos?
Delaney: Every follower of Zerach has them. They appear magically and depict a life even that is significant. We have them on our arms.

14. Is it easy for you three to work together?
Delaney: Micah and I work together really well.
Micah: Until Sam came into the picture. Now it's more difficult.

15. How have you all changed with the current events happening?
Micah: I haven't changed at all. It's Delaney who's changed.
