What better way to get the know the characters of Forever Blue, (other than reading the book which you can do by purchasing here) than by asking those characters a set of completely random questions that have nothing to do with the book .

So here is a list of 10 questions as answered by Judah.

What is your favourite time of the day?

It’s got to be night time. Motly people leave you alone at night.

What sound do you love?

The purr of an engine.

What is something you’ve always wanted to try but have been too scared to?

Skydiving.

What is your favourite thing you’ve watched on Netflix?

Narcos. It was brilliant.

Shark diving, bungee jumping, or sky diving?

All of the above.

Where would your dream holiday be?

Gold coast for Bathhurst, or Isle of Man. Or if I could take my car, I’d love to drive Route 66.

If you were a super hero or super villain, what powers would you have?

Superhuman strength.

What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten?

I guess it would have to be a few worms from when I was younger. Either that, or cat food as a dare.

Are you a dog person or a cat person?

I’ve always considered myself a dog person, but lately I’m coming around to cats. They don’t put up with any shit.

What is a song you know by heart?

Glycerine by Bush and Nothing Else Matters by Metallica. The 90’s ruled.

Meet Lennon in Forever Blue

I thought I could write a little description about each character and what they get up in the book, but then I realised all those things are better if you actually read the book. (You can do that by purchasing Forever Blue here.)

So what would be a better way to get the know the characters in addition to reading the book . . . by asking those characters a set of completely random questions that have nothing to do with the book, whatsoever.

So here is a list of 10 questions as answered by Lennon who is the main character.

What is your favourite time of the day?

Evening. When the sun is setting and casting that pale glow over the ground. Definitely my favourite time of the day.

What sound do you love?

Rain falling on a tin roof.

What is something you’ve always wanted to try but have been too scared to?

A raw chili.

What is your favourite thing you’ve watched on Netflix?

I loved Marco Polo.

Shark diving, bungee jumping, or sky diving?

None, but if I had to choose, bungee jumping.

Where would your dream holiday be?

I’ve love to go to Scotland.

If you were a super hero or super villain, what powers would you have?

Well that’s easy, as I’ve pretty much already got one. Invisibility.

What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten?

Too many to count, thanks to Mum. Most recently though, a chicken, carrot, gherkin and raisin sandwich.

Are you a dog person or a cat person?

Cats. Dogs are too yappy.

What is a song you know by heart?

Breathe by Anna Narlick.

All things Forever Blue

In the lead up to the release of Forever Blue, I thought it would be fun to post some links on Facebook of all things Forever Blue. And by that, I mean some of the things that turned up on a google search titled Forever Blue. I came across some gorgeous songs, some artwork and some photography which I thought I would share on here as well.

Forever Blue – Song by Chris Isaak

I started off with this song by Chris Isaak. Even though it was released back in 1995, I had never heard it. It’s a song of heartbreak and sadness. And one which I could imagine Ruben listening too, not so much before, but definitely after.
The lyrics below were sourced from www.azlyrics.com.

Nobody ever warns you, or tells you what to do.
She walks away, you’re left to stay.
Alone forever blue.

The stars have all stopped shining, the sun just won’t break through.
Each days the same, more clouds more rain.
you’re left forever blue.

Forever blue ’cause you love her, but she dosen’t love you.
You did your best, life did the rest.
you’re left forever blue.

No reason left for living, still there’s a lot to do.
New tears to cry, old songs to sing.
And feel forever blue.
And be forever…. Blue

Forever Blue – Art by Isabelle Vobmann

The artwork below is an acrylic painting by Isabelle Vobmann. It is something I imagine that Lennon’s mother, Shelley would adore.

Forever Blue – Gif search

So I’m not too sure who the original poster of this gif was, but it seemed to fit the theme.
I found the image here.
Thanks val. I’m pretty sure Cara would love it.

Forever Blue – Photography by Ian Middleton

For day four I found this stunning image by photographer Ian Middleton. I’m pretty sure the Deacons’ would have this in their lounge.
Check it out over on Redbubble.

Forever Blue – Song by Kina Grannis

I came across this while searching within Facebook. The song is amazing. So sad and sweet. I had to follow her immediately! Here’s what Kina had to say about the song.

“Forever Blue” is a song I wrote about loss–about fearing it, coping with it, knowing it is inevitable. It is also a song about love, as I don’t think you can really have one without the other. While I wish we could all float through life devoid of all the hurt and sadness that comes with loss, in a way it’s beautiful because it’s proof that we have allowed ourselves to really feel and really love.”

Again, I grabbed the lyrics from www.azlyrics.com.

When I was a child
I was heavy hearted
Knowing all that started to an end
I dreamt of a day
No one ever left here
Cried out to the night to find a way

And it broke my heart
When I felt the truth
My father has a father too
Don’t understand how we’ll make it through
Will I be forever blue?

Everyday I’ve known
It grows only deeper
Why can’t I not keep her here for good
So I’ll take the waves
Floating when I’m weaker
Waiting through the water missing you

And it broke my heart
When I felt the truth
My father has a father too
Don’t understand how we’ll make it through
Will I be forever blue?

Play to mother
We’re still fighting
We’re all trying to make it home for you

All my love is yours forever
Take it with you
Take it with you

All my love is yours forever
Take it with you
Say you’ll never go

When I was a child
I was heavy hearted

Well that’s my round up of all things Forever Blue. Well, really it was five things Forever Blue, but all things Forever Blue sounds more appealing.
