Julesfest: Day 6

Today’s hot shot of Jules is American model and actor, Sean Faris, as suggested the other day by Shanny S. Why, you ask? Just let me show you.

Jules just after shirtless fight (because sometimes that just happens)

Serious Jules

Amused and slightly shaggy Jules

Need I explain any further than that? Good.

Today is Day 6 of Julesfest…only 3 days to go! Today I’m going to give you an interview that Jules did a year or so ago for Novels on the Run. Enjoy!

Amy knows that out of all her guys, for some reason you really stood out for me. I have my own 5 words that describe you *wink*

Q. 1 What 5 words would you use to describe yourself?

Smart. Talented. Handsome. Dashing. Humble. *smirks*

Q. 2 What 5 words do you think Ambrose and Vincent would use to describe you?

Ladies’ man. Jokester. Suave. Generous. Loyal.

Q. 3 Jules is pronounced ‘zhool’ kind of like jewel. Which is rather pretty and perfect, what type of jewel do you think you would be and why?

Tiger’s eye. Why? I don’t know, because it’s the most masculine gem I could think of. *laughs and runs his fingers through his hair, amused*

Q. 4
“’I look beautiful,’ I said in awe, looking up from the drawing to his serious face.

‘You are beautiful,’ he said, leaning over and kissing me softly on the forehead, before turning and striding out of the cafe.” ( Die For Me)

You seemed quite taken by Kate in ‘Die For Me’. Have you ever been in love? Or are you truly the guy you described yourself as , ‘I have several girlfriends that I see on rotation, just to make sure nothing gets too serious.’ Or is it just too hard to have a relationship with a human girl so this is a coping mechanism, quantity, not quality?

I’ve been in love a thousand times. I fall in love with every woman I meet. They’re like the air I breathe—I need their beauty to survive. Why would I limit myself to enjoying only one? But if forced, I would have to admit that…yeah, Kate is pretty special. *looks away* Next question?

Q. 4 What song would you think describes Kate and Vincent’s relationship in Die For Me?

Say Yes by Elliott Smith

Q. 5 What song best describes yourself?

Twenty Girls Ago by David Mead (plus it’s a good song to slow-dance to)

Q. 6 What song best describes Ambrose?

Zombie by the Cranberries. Just kidding. Ambrose loves jazz, so anytime I hear a Louis Armstrong song I think of him.

Q. 7 You are a wonderful artist. You have sketched Kate like a Botticelli Venus when you were chatting and errrr….flirting in the cafe. If you were to paint Kate the way you see her, what setting would you want paint her in?

Birth of Venus by Botticelli

Well, thank you. *smiles his most dashing smile* I think Kate standing on a seashell clothed only in her long hair is pretty much the perfect setting for her.

If you were to paint her the way Vincent sees her, what would the setting be?

Well, I know Vincent is a great admirer of Modigliani’s reclining nudes. *smiles mischievously*

But he’s so chivalrous with Kate, I could see him picturing her as the medieval lady to his valiant knight.

Although I’d probably put her on horseback…nude.

Just kidding.

For more Jules…in fact, for a whole novella full of Jules…you can pre-order my eNovella DIE FOR HER. In the DIE FOR ME timeline, it’s DIE FOR HER 2.5 and is completely from Jules’s POV.

Hope you enjoyed that little slice of Since this is Day 6 of JULESFEST, I have six prizes to give away! Like yesterday, the winner gets to choose 1 book from this selection

– and I’m adding a purple Paris bracelet to the bookmarks and bookplates

All you need to do to enter yourself in this random drawing is tell me what song reminds you of Jules, or what song you would add to the playlist that he uses when he’s in his studio painting.

    Songs for Jules…hmmm…I think I have a couple:

    1. Bittersweet, Mother Earth (I picked this one because, with Kate in the picture in any way, I’D be the one suffering unrequited love)

    2. It’s Enough Now, Mandalay (I chose this one because I get the feeling that Jules feels like he’s not enough. Well, for me he is MORE than enough.)


  2. by Doris - On March 30, 2013

    Jules would paint to Nina Simone music

  3. by Kelly Fine - On March 30, 2013


    Fight For You by Jason Derulo

    While he is painting another one of Kate… ;-)

  4. by airhead - On March 30, 2013

    Distance by Christina Perri ft Jason Mraz

  5. by Nicola Donoghue - On March 30, 2013

    Songs for Jules would be a Deaf Havana song for me I think. Either; Little White Lies, The World or Nothing, or Youth in Retrospect :)

  6. by JK17 - On March 30, 2013

    Falling Slowly by Glen Hansard.

    Yeah I can really picture it in my head right now.

  7. by JK17 - On March 30, 2013

    Falling Slowly by Glen Hansard.

    Yeah I can really picture it in my head right now.

  8. by Nasiba - On March 30, 2013

    1000 years by Christina Perri!! It just describes Jules’ silent love for Kate. here’s the link


  9. by Shelby von wahl - On March 30, 2013

    Id say
    Here without you- 3 doors down. Because the jules we know is shaped by his abject longing for kate.

    She will be loved- maroon 5. Because although we know jules will never try to take kate from vincent, he will never stop loving her; and should things change i imagine he will be right there, waiting

  10. by Tiffany - On March 30, 2013

    I Won’t Give Up. -Jason Mraz
    Mostly because I love how he doesn’t suppress his love for Kate. I mean, he does have restraint, but that isn’t enough to stop him from continuing to love the girl of his dreams. That takes courage. ;)

  11. by Kelly - On March 30, 2013

    I think the perfect song to describe Jules is :
    All I Need by Within Temptations
    It reflects how Jules felt when he many unserious date experiences but still what he wants and NEEDS is Kate. She’s special to him but he wouldn’t want to hurt his best friend <3

  12. by Geraldine Frost - On March 30, 2013

    The song that reminds me of Jules is ‘Just the way you are’ by Bruno Mars from a girl’s perspective!

    Only 3 more sleeps till April 2nd :)

  13. by Cyndi C - On March 30, 2013

    “BEAUTIFUL MESS” Jason Mraz.

  14. by Lea Krnjeta - On March 30, 2013

    While he is painting – Seven devils by Florence and The Machine. And the one for him Tighten up and Lonely boy by The Black keys

  15. by Nora - On March 30, 2013

    ”Let Her Go” by Passenger reminds me of Jules.
    I feel he have to let Kate go with Vincent.
    Let her go.

    Songs that Jules can have in his studio painting is
    ”Let Her Go” by Passenger, ”Patient Love” by Passenger and ”She Is Love” by Parachute.

  16. by Nora - On March 30, 2013

    ”I Won’t Give Up” by Jason Mraz.

  17. by Rhian - On March 30, 2013

    You are the only exception by Paramore

  18. by Theo - On March 30, 2013

    Troublemaker by olly Murs. I think it describes jules’s feelings forKate perfectly.

  19. by Jacqueline - On March 30, 2013


    Again from Scott Alan!

    “You look beautiful as always
    Never fail to take my breath away
    He’s a lucky guy to have you
    How’d I ever let you slip away?
    In our completely perfect world
    The two of you would not have met
    You wouldn’t look so radiant there
    In your wedding dress
    But this is not a perfect world
    And I know I should not be here
    Just I have to say one thing
    Before you disappear
    I love you still”

    (Just a small part of the lyrics) That song is just too perfect for Jules!

  20. by Mary H - On March 30, 2013

    1. I ADORE Sean Faris. He is totally beautiful.
    2. So help me, I’d have to go with One Direction’s entire sophomore album Take Me Home. There are songs like “Live Like We’re Young” and “Kiss You” that are about living it up and doing what you want while you can. Then there are the sweet songs like “Little Things” “Last First Kiss” “Change My Mind” and “They Don’t Know About Us” that talk about being so in love with someone and sometimes, not knowing what to do. And then, of course, there’s “I Would” where the boy singing is in love with another guy’s girlfriend and talks about how the boyfriend would beat him up if he knew about it. :)

  21. by Kaitlyn - On March 30, 2013

    Bautiful Disaster by Kelly Clarkson reminds me of Jules. :)

  22. by Carla - On March 30, 2013

    I think The Girl of My Best Friend by Elvis describes Jules situation perfectly.

  23. by Tess - On March 30, 2013

    I think 1000 years by Christina Perri is perfect for Jules and his love for Kate and I also think of Citizen Soldier by 3 doors down for his selflessness

  24. by Chau Giang - On March 30, 2013

    AHHHH Jules Je t’aimeeee :)
    I’d like to visit his studio someday ;)
    So, the song that reminds me of Jules is Missing You by John Waite (http://youtu.be/k9e157Ner90)
    It’s pretty old but so is Jules, if we look through his revenant dossier :D
    And I think that since he’s French (he is, right?) maybe he’d be listening to french love songs in his studio, here are some…
    Je t’aimais, je t’aime, je t’aimerais by Francis Cabrel
    or Ne me quitte pas by Jacques Brel
    Ohlala I can totally picture Jules in those songs.
    Bisous :)

  25. by Karis Cole - On March 30, 2013

    prbably Escape Artist by Our Lady Peace… <3 Jules is such a goof :3 <3

  26. by Tessa Lawler - On March 30, 2013

    Roslyn by Bon Iver and St. Vincent.
    its so artsy, it just reminds me of Jules

  27. by Annika Huhtala - On March 30, 2013

  28. by Caya - On March 30, 2013

    I imagine Jules listening https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qF8fyEDM49g
    “Elizabeth” from Ashram.

  29. by Shanny S. - On March 30, 2013

    I think Wherever You Will Go by Charlene Soraia is perfect especially since it’s a sweet sad song song. And another song that seemed perfect was the Call by Regina Spektor

    1. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DChHEf0lpEE
    2. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qgUL3ut4gyQ

  30. by hiba008 - On March 30, 2013

    you’re beautiful by James Blunt :)

  31. by Enna Penglin - On March 30, 2013

    For some reason Powerless by Lincoln Park comes to mind

  32. by Michelle M - On March 30, 2013

    You and me by lifehouse

  33. by Jennifer K - On March 30, 2013

    Not sure why but when i think of Jules i think of Taylor Swift’s We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.

  34. by Lauren - On March 30, 2013

    I think of Jules when I hear the song Fallin’ by Alicia Keys

  35. by Vivianna - On March 30, 2013

    The song that most reminds me of Jules is: Pretty Woman by Van Halen. Because I think this is what must play every time he passes a woman on the street. :) Well plus swooning. :P

  36. by Joelene - On March 30, 2013

    I know Kate & Jules were never officially together but the song When I Was Your Man by Bruno Mars reminds me of how he feels for her.

  37. by Sabrina - On March 30, 2013

    I feel like Bruno Mars’ song When I Was Your Man relates a lot to Jules when relating him to Kate.


  38. by Sammy G - On March 31, 2013

    If It Kills Me by Jason Mraz. I feel like this is what Jules is probably thinking half the time that he’s with Kate >.<

  39. by Romana - On March 31, 2013

    I think that You and Me from Lifehouse perfectly describes situation between Jules and Kate.


  40. by Aleisha judge - On March 31, 2013

    Every time I here all I need by within temptation I can’t help but thinking its about Jules life

  41. by Grace - On March 31, 2013

    i think Fight For You by Jason Derulo would be a good song for Jules.

  42. by Princess - On March 31, 2013

    Kiss Me by: Ed Sheeran comes to mind. The lyrics “I’ve fallen for your eyes but they don’t know me yet”. I think it’s heartbreaking to think of the song from Jules point of view.

  43. by MaríaT - On March 31, 2013

    I like to think in Jules as a romantic, so, To Whom It May Concern by The Civil Wars is perfec for him.


  44. by Lindsey W - On March 31, 2013

    Honestly, picking a song for Jules seems really tough. There are so many parts of songs that make me think of him, and picking one is difficult.

    Goodbye to the Girl by David Cook.

  45. by Stephanie Ehmann - On March 31, 2013

    For reminding me about Jules I picked:
    Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol.
    For Jules’ playlist I picked:
    Sweet Dreams (Are made of This) by Eurythmics
    This one reminds me of his studio, and how he has probably searched the seven seas looking for someone like Kate to love.

  46. by Krystal David - On March 31, 2013

    Kind of funky but the killers mr bright side. Not the kissing but how he’s feeling. It think it describes how Jules feels perfectly about Kate.

  47. by Stephanie - On March 31, 2013

    Between – Courrier

  48. by Amarleen - On March 31, 2013

    Let me love you by Ne-Yo I think that best describes Jules…it sounds like something he would sing :)

  49. by Ashlie Baire - On March 31, 2013

    Deff..Mr.Brightside by The Killers for Jules!!

    Also deff…Broken by Amy Lee and Seethed for a general Die for Me song lol Kuhn and God Gave Me You by Blake Shelton!! Lol
