Guess what, as an early birthday gift, Kes from The Traveling Duet agreed to let me interview him…
A warning though, if you haven’tread them, this interview contain some spoilers, specially of book 2, The Traveling Woman!!
I hope you enjoy it!!!
Hi Kes! Welcome to Beauty and the Beastly Books!!
Hey! It’s great to be here. Yeah, books. More Aimee’s thing, but whatever – go with the flow.
BBB: First of all thank you for being here, this is a wonderful birthday gift!!
Yeah? Happy birthday. Aimee bakes a bitchin’ cake. Just sayin’.
BBB: Tell us, would you trade not having the accident for a life outside the Carnival?
No. I’ve tried life outside the carnival, and that’s not living – not for me. Even if I’d fucked up my back permanently, I’d have strapped myself on a motorcycle and still done stunts. I know that’s all kinds of fucked up – I guess my brain is wired differently. That’s what Aimee says!
BBB: We readers could all feel the magic in your story, it felt so alive! How is it for you and Aimee, especially now that you live in love instead of fight for it?
Jesus, you’ll make me sound like a sap! It’s cool, yeah? We travel 8 or 9 months of the year. Aimee does her teaching online, and some of the carnie kids are coming to her now. It means families can stay together. That’s important. I want my kids to have that. One day.
BBB: Do you think you will have a relationship with the Senator? How did you really feel about his presence and help during your hospital time?
Asshole fuckwit. Next question.
BBB: I know this is a touchy subject for you and please don’t be offended (*or hit me*), but what in the hell did you see in Sorcha??? She was evil since the beginning!!
Fuck, really? Okay, I’m just going to say this once. It was easy. I didn’t care about her, so she couldn’t hurt me. Next question.
BBB: from your POV how was your first kiss on the top of the Ferris wheel with Aimee?
That’s a bit freakin’ personal! It was … magic.
BBB: You know, my family do that motorcross stuff, one of them actually had an accident like yours (but jumping on a paraglider) and he chose not having the surgery like you…what was the worst thing about it? (*besides the no sex issue* oops did I say that out loud?? LOL)
Oh, man. I’m really sorry to hear that. I wouldn’t wish that shit on my worst enemy. Yeah, not having sex was pretty shitty, but the worst thing was the look on Aimee’s face. That just about slayed me. My girl – staying strong for both of us. She pretended she was okay, but she didn’t fool me. I knew she was going up to our room at night and breaking down. And there was fuck all I could do about it. That was the worst.
How’s your family doing? Did he recover okay? I hope so. Maybe I know the dude?
BBB: I don’t think you do, but yeah, he had a full recover! 🙂
And it’s my tradition to make this quick fire Q&A’s where you’ll answer the first thing that comes to your mind:
Coke or Pepsi? Water
Day or Night? Dawn.
(Hum, seems like our Kes actually can’t go with the flow…lol)
The Beach or the Country? Country.
Favorite color? Auburn – like Aimee’s hair. Yeah, yeah, I know. Next.
Favorite ride on the carnival? Ferris wheel.
(I have a Ferris wheel charm on my Pandora bracelet for you…seems like I made the right choice!)
Favorite hobby? Fucking.
*fans herself* God, it’s HOT in here!!!
Favorite animal? Capuchin monkey.
Beer or Wine? Water.
Salt or sweet? Sweet, like my girl.
And finally…Boxers or Briefs? Fuck me! Neither. [smirks]
Oh no wait…KEEEES…I forgot one last thing…what’s your number?
LMAO – Ask Aimee!
(Yeah, like I would, I’ve seen what she did to Sorcha…)
Jane thank you so much forallowing me to interview Kes!!! This was super fun!!!
