I am very excited to be apart of the Impostor By Jill Hathway official Blog Tour. After reading Slide and loving it, I was so excited to hear about the sequel and it comes out so soon. Today I have a guest post from Jill about what she would do if she could Slide.
If I Could Slide...
It never fails. Whenever people interview me, they always ask what I would do if I could slide (enter someone else’s head and see the world through their eyes).
My standard answer was that I’d slide into Jared Leto’s girlfriend. I mean, obviously. That way I'd get him all to myself.
But maybe this question doesn’t deserve such a flippant answer. Sliding is… well, it’s intense. It’s basically empathy taken to an extreme level. So the question really is, who do I want to understand better?
As I sit here, thinking about this question, it occurs to me that I slide every day that I sit down to write. I become Vee. I become Rollins. I become them all. And that’s… kind of awesome.
Alternatively, you get to slide every time you open a book. You enter another world. You see through someone else’s eyes. You get to live more lives than your own. Isn’t that a wonderful benefit to reading?
If you’d like to slide into Vee again (okay, I really need to figure out a different way to say that), check out IMPOSTOR (SLIDE #2) on March 26.
Until then, slide (read) away!
About the Book:
Series: Slide #2
Release Date: 26th March 2013
Publisher: Balzer + Bray
Synopsis: What if a killer took control of you?
Vee Bell’s gift (or curse) of “sliding”—slipping into the mind of another person and experiencing life, briefly, through his or her eyes—has been somewhat under control since she unwillingly witnessed the horrific deaths of her classmates six months ago.
But just as things are getting back to normal, Vee has a very bizarre experience: she loses consciousness and finds herself in a deserted area, at the edge of a cliff, with the broken body of the boy who took advantage of her on the rocks below.
As Vee finds herself in stranger and stranger situations with no memory of getting there, she begins to suspect that someone she knows has the ability to slide—and that this “slider” is using Vee to exact revenge on his or her enemies.
