Blog Tour: Glamour by Andrea Janes – Interview and Giveaway


Welcome to our Tour Stop for

Glamour by Andrea Janes

presented by World Weaver Press!

Be sure to enter the giveaway found at the end of the post.


Stealing the life she’s always wanted is as easy as casting a spell.

Townie. That’s what eighteen-year-old Christina Sundy is. All year round she lives in a one-stoplight town on Cape Cod, and when summer comes, she spends her days scooping ice cream for the rich tourists she hates. So when one of them takes a job in the ice cream shop alongside her, she’s pissed. Why does a blonde and perky Harvard-bound rich girl like Reese Manning want to scoop ice cream anyway?

Something else weird is happening to Christina: tiny blue sparks seem to be shooting off her fingers. It isn’t long before she realizes the truth about herself — she’s actually a powerful hereditary witch. But her newfound powers are too intense for her to handle and, in a moment of rage, she accidentally zaps Reese into another dimension.

So that no one will notice that the rich girl has disappeared, Christina casts a disguising spell, or “glamour,” and lives Reese’s life while she tries to find a retrieval spell.But as the retrieval spell proves harder than anticipated, and as she goes about living Reese’s life without anyone on the outside noticing the switch, Christina realizes that there’s nothing to stop her from making the glamour permanent… except, of course, her fellow witches, a 16th century demon, and, just maybe, her own conscience.

Top Favs with Andrea Janes

You’re home alone, there’s a fire! Top 3 things you’d grab and save from the fire.

Lighter, matches, and oily rags, so I can keep starting fires outside. I mean, presume I started this fire, right? You did just say I was home alone. Why else would you say that, home alone… what are you implying? How much do you know about this fire?

Top 3 Favorite authors (dead or alive) and why

Herman Melville, Shirley Jackson, and Gary Larson. Because: epic, frightening, absurd.

Top 3 Favorite snacks while writing and why

I will literally eat anything I can find in the pantry. I often forget to or don’t have time to shop, so sometimes it’s slim pickin’s. Right now I am eating walnuts because they are available. If you could please bring me some food that would be great; I am starving.

Top 3 Favorite books that inspired you to write and why

Crikey! I can’t remember that far back! We’d have to go back to kid’s lit here… Wilde’s Happy Prince and Other Tales, Wilder’s Little House series, and I wish there were an author named Wildest to complete this trilogy but actually it was probably Robert Bloch if you can believe it. When I was a kid I loved “That Hell-Bound Train.”

Top 3 favorite songs to listen to while writing and why

Just one: the Canadian national anthem, on repeat.

Top 3 favorite techniques to overcome writers block and why

1)    Do something else.

2)    Read something intimidatingly good.

3)    Take a walk in a graveyard – lots of names and stories there you can plunder. Note: do not literally plunder the graveyard.

Top 3 musicians/bands/groups and why

Blondie, Velvet Underground, the Ramones. I only listen to music that was popular in 1979, the year I was born.

Top 3 favorite movies of all time and why

Anything by Hitchcock or Hawks.

Top 3 favorite animated movies and why

Specially animated? I like the Disney Alice in Wonderland. All the background are very inky black. I like the Phantom Tollbooth, even if it’s a tad preachy. Can’t think of a third.

Top 3 favorite movie moments and why

Why so many movie questions? Do you secretly work for Big Movie? I can think of one: the opening sequences of Bell, Book and Candle.

Top 3 favorite actors/actresses and why

Barbara Stanwyck, Jimmy Cagney, Phil Hartman.

Top 3 favorite gadgets and why

Does a bottle opener count as a gadget? Then, three of those.

Top 3 favorite dream destinations and why

East Flanders, for beer (and because I’ve already been to West Flanders).

Portugal, for the sea.

Scotland, for ghost tours.
