Character Interview with the men of the Uruwashi series
Hello, I’m Christina Moore, the author of the Uruwashi series and on today’s tour stop I have a special treat for you readers. I managed to track down our reluctant hero and two of his companions for a special interview. (Edit: Tristan wanted to make sure that I stated clearly that Yukihime IS NOT HIS COMPANION, just some crazy little shit that he can’t get rid of. So there you go.)
Christina: Welcome Tristan, Ash and Yukihime. Do you want to take a moment to tell us a little about yourselves?
Tristan: Do I have to?
Ash nudges him with her foot.
Tristan: *sighs* Fine. Uh, hey, everyone. I’m Tristan Blum but lately I’ve been called Uruwashi, mostly by vampires. I still don’t know what the fuck Uruwashi means outside of Beautiful Death, but it’s what I am. So yeah, I guess I don’t know what I am. That good enough?
Christina: Um, Ash, how about you?
Ash: Yes, hello. My name is Ash. However that is not my real name and I prefer not to share it. I am… different. I am Tristan’s companion, always at his side. I suppose I can be a little cold at times but I always mean well, I assure you.
Yukihime: Oh, me, me, me! I’m Yukihime, the Snow Princess, and I well, I don’t remember my birthday but I celebrate every day like it’s my day and thoroughly enjoy life. Mostly by teasing these other two who only just tolerate me.
Christina: Er, right. So let’s just start with a few simple questions, yes? How about… what’s your favorite movie?
Tristan: Oh Christ, “The Fifth Element” without a doubt. MUL-TI-PASSSS! Love it.
Christina: Me too!
Ash: Um… as in motion pictures on the television? I have never seen one, can I chose a book instead?
Ash: The Adventures of Alice in Wonderland.
Christina: Nice, and Yuki?
Yukihime: Any that have excessive violence. Yes, bloody films about Japanese or Chinese culture are the best. I was a real ninja once, you know.
Yukihime makes cutting motions with her hands.
Christina: M-kay… moving along. Favorite food?
Tristan: Hmm, tough one. I don’t look it, but I love to eat. I guess it’s a tie up between corned beef and cabbage, and tacos. I mean, everyone loves tacos, right?
Ash: I do not love tacos. Is this really a serious question?
Christina: Well, I can get on board with the tacos things, but my favorite just might have to be tuna sashimi. Spicy crunchy tuna, oh yeah. Oh, or a juicy burger. Okay, any Hobbies?
Tristan: Well… um, right now with my life the way it is, uh, no. Does staying alive count?
Ash: I like to read and play the piano. I also have an extensive collection of swords and knifes I like to practice with often.
Yukihime: Oh dear, there’s so many things I love: tea, opium, my koi garden, teasing Desmond, oh and origami… Ice sculpting. Yes, many things. There’s more, I’m sure of it but I just forget sometimes.
Christina: Okay how about one thing you can’t leave the house without?
Tristan: A gun.
Ash: Murasaki Kaeru.
Yukihime: Malik’s head.
Everyone shifts away from Yukihime.
Christina: How about your favorite Shinwa?
Tristan: Isn’t it obvious? Any that don’t try to kill me.
Ash: Are we even supposed to be talking about this?
Yukihime: All of them!
Christina: Okay, last question we have time for today. Anything you’d like to tell the humans following your tale(s)?
Tristan: *sighs* Sorry? I don’t know. I know I suck at this, but I’m doing my best… bear with me, I guess. I’m too stubborn for the secrets to remain secret for long. I will figure all this bullshit out, no doubt.
Ash: Be mindful of the dark. And pythias. Never trust a witch. Or a vampire. Do not trust anyone. Especially Yukihime.
Yukihime: Beware, here there be monsters, arg!
Christina: There you have it folks. Beautiful Death for Kindle is (was) on sale from November 24-30, Bête Noire from December 1-8 and Moon Child from December 9-16, all for $.99 each.

The only thing about Tristan’s typical American life that’d been even slightly atypical was that he was adopted. The Blum’s raised him, loved him as if he was their own. But they never knew who Tristan really was, about the stigma his birth surname carried. Everything changed after their untimely death. Suddenly monsters are after Tristan and all because of a few words spoken by a remarkable stranger.
After carelessly stumbling into the arms of the enemy’s servant, a rotting jikininki, the one silently watching over Tristan is forced to intercede. Ash claims to be a hunter, but that’s not the whole truth. Whatever Ash is or isn’t, it’s neither good nor evil. And Ash is the only one who can save Tristan now. But can someone who can’t even accept the unwavering truth that maybe they never were really human to start with be saved?
