Character Sketch: A Guest Post by Inara Scott plus Giveaway

I would like to welcome Inara Scott to Good Books & Good Wine. Inara Scott is the author of upcoming series Delacroix Academy. The first book, The Candidates was released August 24. Here’s the synopsis straight from goodreads:

Dancia Lewis is far from popular. And that’s not just because of her average grades or her less-than-glamorous wardrobe. In fact, Dancia’s mediocrity is a welcome cover for her secret: whenever she sees a person threatening someone she cares about, things just…happen. Cars skid. Structures collapse. Usually someone gets hurt.  So Dancia does everything possible to avoid getting close to anyone, belieiving this way she can supress her powers and keep them hidden. But when recruiters from the prestigious Delcroix Academy show up in her living room to offer her a full scholarship, Dancia’s days of living under the radar may be over. Only, Delcroix is a school for diplomats’ kids and child geniuses–not B students with uncontrollable telekinetic tendencies.  So why are they treating Dancia like she’s special? Even the hottest guy on campus seems to be going out of his way to make Dancia feel welcome. And then there’s her mysterious new friend Jack, who can’t stay out of trouble. He suspects something dangerous is going on at the Academy and wants Dancia to help him figure out what.  But Dancia isn’t convinced. She hopes that maybe the recruiters know more about her “gift” than they’re letting on. Maybe they can help her understand how to use it…But not even Dancia could have imagined what awaits her behind the gates of Delcroix Academy. “

Sounds awesome right? Well, without further ado, here is Inara Scott with an awesome character sketch:

Character Sketch: Jack v. Cam


Jack: Dark and dangerous, tattoo, silvery-grey eyes, moves like a wolf
Cam: Pure hearthrob from square jaw to dark brown hair, body of a Greek god


Jack: Freshman, but he seems older – maybe failed a grade along the way?
Cam: Junior, but seems older – maybe just those big broad shoulders?


Jack: Sport? Are you kidding?
Cam: X-Country, Soccer (team captain)


Jack: Likes it quiet.
Cam: Seattle indie music

Jack: Needs privacy; wishes he could room alone.
Cam: Rooms with best friend Trevor


Jack: Mother’s whereabouts unknown; he claims to crash with a friend
Cam: Lives with workaholic dad; mom moved away when he was young

Best boyfriend characteristic
Jack: A true loner, he will put his complete focus on you
Cam: Will do anything to protect the people he loves
