Julesfest: Day 7

Yet another competitor for the Hot Jules Shot-of-the-day: Adam Brody.

Pensive Jules

Shy Jules

I-dropped-my-contact Jules

We’re on DAY 7 already!!! Which means only 2 days left until your eReader downloads DIE FOR HER!!! What? You haven’t ordered yet? Jules is very very disappointed in you. Just kidding. He loves you no matter what. But if you do want Jules’s story here’s where to click to buy the eNovella which I wrote from his point of view:

click to pre-order DIE FOR HER

Today I have an interview that Jules did last year. I can’t remember which blog it was for (sorry!), but he gives some tantalizing responses! :)

So you’re, like, an artist, right? Can I be your muse?

You have the beauty of a muse. If you can sit still for a few hours at a time, I’ll even invite you to be my model. Clothing is optional.

What’s your most favorite piece you’ve ever created? And why?

Well, my favorite paintings are those with women in them, funnily enough. And since you mentioned muses, there’s this American girl one of my friends is dating who has kind of been my muse lately. Although I’ve done several full-length oil paintings of her, my favorite is a little pencil sketch I did when we were in café once. This girl’s face shines with the purity and innocence of Botticelli’s Venus, so that’s how I depicted her. I wonder if she kept it.

(Amy’s note: it’s framed in Kate’s bedroom.)

If you knew that saving the woman you love would cause you to lose her, would you still do it?

Yes. That’s a bit of a trick question, because if I didn’t save her I would lose her anyway. (She’s be dead.) But if you are asking the question “which comes first for a bardia: love or sacrifice?” sacrifice is unquestionably what we would choose. Saving human lives is the reason we’re here. Those of us who find lasting love are rare enough. I don’t even aspire to it. Loving a human is usually forbidden by my clan leader, Jean-Baptiste, and I haven’t yet met a bardia who has swept me off my feet.

What other artists are your greatest inspirations?

Those who I knew during my human life: Modigliani, Soutine, Brancusi, and of course the father of us all, Edouard Manet,

Always, sometimes, never?
– Brush your teeth everyday? Always. (Three times a day to stay minty fresh.)
– Kiss on the first date? Sometimes. If I can tell she wants to.
– Bros before hos? Never. Kindred before outsiders.
– Read a book? Sometimes. Most of my free time is spent making or seeing art. So maybe just a book or two a week.
– Call back within 24 hours of the first date? Always. Even if it isn’t someone I’m going to see again I would always thank her for her time.

Describe your perfect Parisian date.
Go to an art exhibition opening party (they’re called “vernissages”), then on to cocktails at a bar-peniche (one of the boats floating in the Seine), and then on to dinner at an intimate restaurant. After that, a walk in the moonlight—nothing’s so magical or romantic as Paris at night. And then maybe, if I’m lucky, a kiss.

Since it’s Day 7, we have 7 prizes!! The winner gets their choice of one of the following books:

Plus the 2 bookmarks, 2 bookplates, rubber Paris bracelet AND pink sparkly Eiffel Tower pin!

And to enter to win these prizes, all you have to do is leave a comment with your own question for Jules. I will draw randomly from all entries, but tomorrow Jules will answer a few of your questions for you! Ask away!!!

    Jules, will you marry me? lol, I’m kidding. =))

  2. by Tamara - On March 31, 2013

    Okay, a question for Jules: If you had to live somewhere other than Paris, where would you go, and why?

    P.S. Happy Easter! :)

  3. by Ellie Fetzer - On March 31, 2013

    Between Vincent and Kate, you could only save 1 of them from a final death, which one would you save? The girl that captivated your heart or the best friend you have had over a century?

  4. by Kelly Fine - On March 31, 2013

    Jules…have you been to the United States and if not would you like to visit?

  5. by JK17 - On March 31, 2013

    If you were given a chance to be a human again and have a normal life, would you take it?

    :)

    P.S. Can’t wait for your e-novella!

  6. by Lindsey - On March 31, 2013

    Jules… Will you marry me?

  7. by Marilyn Snezek - On March 31, 2013

    Jules- What do you think of Charlie Russell’s technique for capturing the light in sky over Montana??

  8. by airhead - On March 31, 2013

    My brain can’t think of a serious question (it’s pretty late where I am), so…

    Would you rather fight 100 duck-sized horses, or 1 horse-sized duck?

  9. by Krystal David - On March 31, 2013

    What made you fall head over heals for Kate? And how are you going to continue to hide it from Kate and Vincent?

  10. by Jacqueline - On March 31, 2013

    Did you ever do something that you still regret? And if so, what was it?

  11. by Stephanie Ehmann - On March 31, 2013

    Does Kate and Vincents’ relationship have you wanting one of your own?

  12. by Chloe Smith - On March 31, 2013

    Jules – if you were stuck on a desert island, what one item would you most like to have with you? Thanks! :)

  13. by Tessa Lawler - On March 31, 2013

    If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be, and why?

  14. by Lorelai - On March 31, 2013

    Hey Jules, what are your favorite TV shows?

  15. by Doris - On March 31, 2013

    Would you become mortal for the chance to be with Kate?

  16. by Ree - On March 31, 2013

    Hey Jules, if I wanted some inspiration for a piece of art I was working on where would you take me?

  17. by Ems - On March 31, 2013

    Hey Jules, how would you describe your perfect lady? Do you have a preference as far as looks go, or are you more concerned with her character?

    Ems

  18. by Shanny S. - On March 31, 2013

    What would you say/do if Vincent asked you if you love Kate?

  19. by Carla - On March 31, 2013

    Is there a piece of art by another artist that you wish you were the creater of?

  20. by Kristalyn Thornock - On March 31, 2013

    Jules would you like more books written about you? Perhaps an entire series even? I know I would enjoy reading them! ;)

  21. by Katherine - On March 31, 2013

    If Jules could have Kate and Vincent didn’t love Kate and her him, what would he do to win her heart?

  22. by Geraldine Frost - On March 31, 2013

    Hi Jules,
    You have been revenant for a very long time and I am sure it has not been an easy life. Apart from your painting and art, what do you do when things get too much for you?

    Only two more sleeps till April 2nd :)

  23. by Enna Penglin - On March 31, 2013

    What’s the best and worst dream you have ever had?

  24. by Nora - On March 31, 2013

    Jules, can you show me your favorite places in Paris and maybe we can go to a cafè with the Eiffel Tower? :)

  25. by Kelly V - On March 31, 2013

    Jules you said that you have loved many women over the years and now Kate is the women you love. It just seems that you choose women who are unavailable to you, or to whom you don’t get attached so you can’t get too close. Why, who hurt you so bad?

  26. by Vivianna - On March 31, 2013

    Jules, have you read the Harry Potter series, and did you like it?

  27. by Daisy R - On March 31, 2013

    Jules, what is your favorite flavor of Ice Cream?

  28. by Lexi B - On March 31, 2013

    Jules, do you believe in true love/love at first sight?

  29. by Annika Huhtala - On March 31, 2013

    Jules, hey. I’ve understood you have seen many mistakes humans have done over the years, but also sacrifices people have done for their loved ones. Do you think that if Kate would put herself in great danger while saving the man she loves, you would still sacrifice yourself and Die for her?

  30. by Lea Krnjeta - On March 31, 2013

    Besides painting what do you do to relax and what type of music is your favorite? :)

  31. by Ashlie Baire - On March 31, 2013

    If Vincent had really died and Kate couldn’t do anything about it…what would you do to help/console her…would you slowly form the romance that you want?

  32. by Shelby vonWahl - On March 31, 2013

    I really like Ellie Fetzer’s question and would like that one answered. but my question for Jules would be….
    ‘What is your favorite childhood memory(before becoming a Bardia)? and why?’

  33. by CD - On March 31, 2013

    Jules, what would be your dream dinner ? And I want to know everything, where, what to eat and with who (except Kate) !

  38. by Isabel - On March 31, 2013

    Jules, what do you consider to be the best part of being a bardia? And/or, where would you take Kate on a date if you could.

  41. by Jennifer K - On March 31, 2013

    Favorite color?

  42. by Loan - On March 31, 2013

    What is it about Kate that made you fall in love with her? What set her apart from every other beautiful girl you have met and been with in the past and present that you would fall for your best friend’s girl?

  43. by Fiona - On March 31, 2013

    What is your favorite restaurant to take a girl go on a date to?

  44. by samantha - On March 31, 2013

    Jules, what would you do for Kate’s birthday if you were in Vincent’s place?

  45. by Jenny M - On March 31, 2013

    Hmmm… trying to think of a question that hasn’t already been asked… What personality trait do you consider to be the most important?? :)

  46. by Amarleen - On March 31, 2013

    Do you believe that there’s someone out there for everyone and if there is is there just one person that could be your soulmate or is there a possibility that there is more than one person out there made just for you?

  47. by Jenny M - On March 31, 2013

    Sorry, I didn’t mean to add a website to my last comment — no idea what happened there ;)

  48. by Lauren M - On March 31, 2013

    If something happens to Vincent would you step in for him and tell Kate your in love with her?

  49. by Joelene - On April 1, 2013

    Jules – Do you believe that maybe Kate isn’t your true love & that your soul mate is still out there, undiscovered yet?

  50. by Karis Cole - On April 1, 2013

    Jules, How are you coping with Kates’ recent lack of physical boyfriend and your loyalty to said boyfriend? How are you coping with the lacking presence of a great friend luv?

  51. by Lydia L. - On April 1, 2013

    Jules (what an awesome name!), why Kate? I mean, you could have any girl and not just because of your dashing good looks, your artistic abilities, etc… but your kind, your sweet and your not just some guy that dates a girl one time and after that never calls or gives a reason for never wanting to see her again (yes I actually read most of the questions that you answered earlier). What sparked your interest in Kate or should I say, what in Kate sparked your interest that the other girls you dated didn’t have in them, and what would you do if Kate found out that you loved her?!?!?! Would you deny her and say you don’t love her or would you tell her that you do love her??? If you do tell her would you have her keep it a secret from Vincent?? Why or why not?? If Vincent found out WHAT IN THE WORLD WOULD YOU DO?!?!?!?!…..your friendship would probably get awkward…..or will it???
    Thanks Jules and I will always be a fan!,
    Lydia L. ;D

  52. by Amina - On April 1, 2013

    You probably noticed how you came across Kate “by chance” whenever you were with Vincent before she even entered your world. Did she catch your attention, then?

  53. by Grace - On April 1, 2013

    did you have any brothers and sisters before you became a reverent?

  54. by Parker - On April 1, 2013

    If you could combine 3 animals into 1 what 3 animal would you choose?

  55. by Madison - On April 1, 2013

    What is your favorite place in paris to hang out?

  56. by Tink - On April 1, 2013

    If you could have all the power in the world but have to sacrifice one person you love, would you do it?

  57. by Aleisha judge - On April 1, 2013

  58. by Aleisha judge - On April 1, 2013

  59. by Amy - On April 1, 2013

    Jules, who is your favorite artist of all time?

  60. by Baileigh - On April 1, 2013

    Jules, if you had the power to make Kate choose you instead of Vincent, would you? Event if it meant breaking his heart.

    P.S. Happy Easter!

  61. by Princess - On April 1, 2013

    What is that one food that you can eat everyday for the rest of your life?

  62. by Alyana - On April 1, 2013

    Jules, if you had met Kate first rather than Vincent, do you think that things may have turned out differently for you and her?

  63. by Mary H - On April 1, 2013

    Boxers or briefs….or nothing at all? ;D

  64. by hiba008 - On April 1, 2013

  65. by Maddi - On April 1, 2013

    What would you do if Vincent and Kate broke up?

  66. by Maddi - On April 1, 2013

    What season or holiday (christmas, etc.) do you enjoy painting most?

  67. by Kelly - On April 1, 2013

    Jules, do you miss being human? Or do you enjoy being a revenant too much to reminisce being a mortal?

  68. by MaríaT - On April 1, 2013
