  For my spot on the Christine Seifert's The Predicteds blog tour, hosted by The Teen Book Scene, I am hosting a Character This or That list with Daphne. Also be sure to check out my giveaway at the end of this blog post for your chance to win a copy of The Predicteds!

Popular or blends well in the crowd? 
Probably popular. Daphne likes to be different, so there’s no way she’d want to just blend in. She’s too bold for that.

Coffee or tea?
Coffee. Daphne stays up way too late. She needs the caffeine to keep going.

Morning or night person?
Night person. Probably because of all that coffee she drinks.

On a set schedule or go by the seat of her pants?
Seat of her pants. Daphne isn’t much of a planner. Frankly, she’d drive me nuts. I’m set schedule all the way.

North Dakota or Utah?
North Dakota. Daphne likes the Midwest. Utah would be too outsdoors-y for her. They kick you out of the state if you can’t climb, hike, or ski. (I’m sliding by under the radar).

What's more important to you as a writer: character or plot development?
Character. Good plot is a bonus. But I need an interesting character to propel that plot.

What's more important to you as a reader: character driven or plot driven books?
Character driven. A bad plot can be saved by characters that are super compelling.

Jersey Shore or Real Housewives (pick any state)?
Jersey Shore. That Situation is something else.

Blonde or brunette?
Daphne would pick brunette because she’s into Jesse. My husband’s blonde, though, so I’ll go with that one!

Classic novels or contemporary novels?
Classic. Daphne’s old-fashioned at heart, and she loves anything vintage. I pick contemporary novels.

Daphne is the new girl in town and is having trouble fitting in. At least she has Jesse... sort of. He wants to be more than "just friends," but there's something he's not telling her about his past. Something dangerous. When a female student is brutally attacked, police turn to PROFILE, a new program that can predict a student's capacity for drug use, pregnancy, and violent behavior, to solve the case. As the witch hunt ensues, Daphne is forced to question her feelings for Jesse-and what she will do if her first love turns out to be a killer.

    I'm a set schedule type of person too, I could never do the by seat of my pants thing! I live for lists and crossing things off them when they've been completed. I am a nerd:)

    Don't enter me, I have a copy of this one and can't wait to read it!

  6. I love that Daphne and her creator or such total opposites! I feel like a lot of authors write themselves into their characters -- either consciously or not. I'm definitely with Christine on the character-driven thing. Characters are what turn people into diehard fans, and members of this Team or that Team =)

  7. Haley G Says:

    I checked it out at the library, but would like to see if I can win a copy before I read it.

  8. Small Review Says:

    I agree about good characters. I can forgive a lot of plot flaws or a boring plot if the characters grab me.

    Thank you for the giveaway!
