Blog Tour: Covert Youth Agency: The Case of Tangled Love - Jason Ancona, Interview and Giveaway.

I'd like to welcome author Jason Ancona to the blog today. He is here answering some off the wall questions today, all in the name of his new book, Covert Youth Agency: The Case of Tangled Love. This interview kicks off the blog tour, hosted by The Teen Book Scene. You can find all of the tour details here. You can learn more about the Covert Youth Agency on Jason's website located here. Be sure to look for the giveaway at the bottom of the post! 

What did you enjoy the most about creating a team of students who investigate cheating?

The C.Y.A. wasn't created just to investigate cheating, it just happened to be the case that they were currently working on. The thing I love most about the team is that they are trying to help out other students, even though they all have issues of their own.

The sleuths of the Covert Youth Agency notice that their school is being invaded by a paranormal creature, what kind of creature is it, and how would the team react to the invasion?

The creature is E.T., who's planning to seize all of the Reese's Pieces at school. Instead of thwarting him, the C.Y.A. joins forces with E.T. to rule the universe as intergalactic spies.


Does the Covert Youth Agency have a theme song? If so, what is it?

It would be, “I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For,” by U2. The three members of the C.Y.A. all have a void in their lives, and they yearn to fill it.


What would the front page headline of a newspaper say about you?

I don't think I'm front page material. It would have to be something shocking, or tabloid fodder. “Jennifer Aniston caught sneaking out of Taco Bell with Jason Ancona.” He says, “They're just friends.”
Honestly, it would be cool if the headline read, “Jason Ancona, author of the Covert Youth Agency series, has just sold movie rights to X,Y,Z studio for a three picture deal.” And even cooler if I'd actually get to write the screenplay. That's what I first started writing. You may have noticed my novel is very dialogue heavy. Working on getting better at writing books.

What kind of tree would you describe yourself as, and why?


If I were a tree, I'd like to be an apple tree so people could bake pies from my droppings. Cinnamon apple pies for everyone.


Thank you Jason for answering these questions, and being here today!
