A Mermaid's Curse Blog Tour

Today I’m interviewing Blake from Insatiable – A Mermaid’s Curse, by Daniele Lanzarotta. He’s quite the looker, don’t you think?

First here is the synopsis of the story:

Arianna always felt like she didn’t belong in the world where she was born.  Ever since she was little, she used to hide behind the rocks in the sea, and watch the human family who spent their summers on that island.  Over the years, there was nothing she wished more than to be like them, especially so she could get close to Blake, the human boy who she saw turn into a troubled teenager and then, an unhappy man.

Once her dad grew tired of her dreams and hopes for a reality that is not her own, Arianna is thrown into an arranged marriage, and her only way out of it is to make a deal with the power-hungry man who will give her everything that she has ever dreamed of.  Dreams that turn into nightmares as she watches Blake’s world fall apart, because of her and Blake’s inability to control their desires for one another.

So Blake, Daniele let me read your story, and you got a pretty bum deal, but we won’t talk about that right now. I don’t want to spoil it for others who haven’t read it yet. Just know I get where you’re coming from.
I feel I know you pretty well, but there are few things more I’d like to know about you. Is it all right if I ask you a few questions? And are there any limits to what I can ask?
Sure thing.  I don’t think there are any limits, but we’ll see…
Okay, I’ll be good I promise.

I just have to know, before Arianna, what kind of girl would’ve turned your head?
Honestly, any girl who could have carried on a conversation.  Unfortunately, I had always been surrounded by stuck up girls who thought they were the center of the universe.  You know… like Brooke.
Ah, yes quite the bitch.

From what I understand your father is an arrogant man, there’s got to be some good in him somewhere. Do you have a good memory of him from your childhood?
*Laughs* I don’t have one good memory of him.  Ever.
Sorry to hear that Blake.

Everyone has something they are afraid of, what’s your one worst fear?
I’m afraid of how far my father is willing to go to get what he wants, especially when it involves Arianna.

What would your ideal date with the love of your life be?
I’m easy to please.  Whatever she wants for her ideal date works for me.

What’s your idea of the perfect vacation?
Any drama free vacation is a perfect vacation. Unfortunately, drama seems to follow me around.

Chose one in each group:
Cat or dog? Dog
Tea or coffee? Neither
Vanilla or Chocolate? Chocolate
Hot or cold? Hot

Tell me three things about yourself that no one knows:  I wrote a book once then I turned around and shredded every page. I hate wearing suits. I thought about running away from home every day during my childhood, but I never did because I couldn’t leave my brother behind.

Thank you, Blake for taking the time to hang with me for a little while. It was fun, and I look forward to more of Daniele’s stories in your world. Any idea when the next will be released?
Knowing her, very soon!

I look forward to reading it!
