Fifty Shades of YA Boys continues today with Joshua from Tara Hudson’s Hereafter series. He is currently the main squeeze in Hereafter, Arise and next year’s Elegy. Joshua sounds like a really fun guy.
Thanks to Tara, you guys have a chance to win a signed paperback copy of HEREAFTER and hardcover copy of ARISE. As always, please see details at the end of the post.
Born and raised in Oklahoma, Tara Hudson graduated with a degree in law, mostly because she believed all the horror stories about English majors and their careers in the food-service industry. Luckily, she soon remembered how much she loved telling ghost stories, particularly to her girlfriends who liked visiting abandoned cemeteries as much as she did. Tara currently lives in Oklahoma with her husband, son, and a menagerie of ill-behaved pets.

Fill in the Blanks:
NOBODY KNOWS I AM: Secretly a huge horror movie fan. I’ll watch anything – the Saw movies, The Shining – but anything bad, too. I stand by the fact that Piranaconda is one of the best TV movies of all time, hands down. I wish Amelia would watch them with me but, believe it or not, they creep her out too much.
I WISH I COULD STOP: My addiction to sunflower seeds. As salty and crunchy as possible- I eat them by the bagful. I guess it’s a baseball player thing. But this addiction is better than dip, right? Makes me much more make-out-able.
I’M A SUCKER FOR: The weird little noises Amelia makes when she sleeps, which isn’t often but…still. Dude, girl-sighs get me, every time.
A GOOD TIME FOR ME IS: Hanging out with my friends and my girlfriend on a Friday night. But that can’t happen, because none of them can see her but me. It’s the one time I really, really wish I could change about my life.
NOBODY WOULD BELIEVE ME IF THEY SAW ME: Get a foot rub. I love ‘em. It’s kind of my secret fantasy to go get a pedicure one day but I’d have to do it at night under cover of darkness. And maybe with a S.W.A.T. team guarding me to make sure that no one saw me. EVER.
I’D REALLY RATHER: Be fishing with my dad. We haven’t done that since I was a little kid, but I miss it. There are so many great ponds and creeks around Wilburton. Only know do I realize that we always avoided fishing in a certain river…
THE FIRST THING I DO IN THE MORNING IS: Stretch, and then smile. I’m one of those weird people that just loves the mornings. If I wasn’t such a dude, I’d probably be jumping around the house and singing like some cartoon character. Seriously, my morning attitude drives everyone around me crazy – but I love it.
KILL / FRAK / MARRY:
1. Carrie Underwood – Um, FRAK. Have you since the “Good Girl” video. Wow. Just…wow. But don’t tell Amelia, okay?
2. Leann Rimes – KILL. Ugh, man this girl just bothers me. I don’t dig cheaters, you know? But since I actually know what happens to some people after they die, I think “kill” might be too strong a word…
3. Reese Witherspoon – Beauty, brains, and a sense of humor? MARRY, any day of the week.

About this Book:
Amelia—still caught between life and death—must fight for every moment of her relationship with the human boy Joshua. They can hardly even kiss without Amelia accidentally dematerializing. Looking for answers, they go to visit some of Joshua’s Seer relatives in New Orleans. But even in a city so famously steeped in the supernatural, Amelia ends up with more questions than answers…and becomes increasingly convinced that she and Joshua can never have a future together.Wandering through the French Quarter, Amelia meets other in-between ghosts, and begins to seriously consider joining them. And then she meets Gabrielle. Somehow, against impossible odds, Gaby has found a way to live a sort of half-life…a half-life for which Amelia would pay any price. Torn between two worlds, Amelia must choose carefully, before the evil spirits of the netherworld choose for her.
