10 Things You Don’t Know about Jack Ashdown: from Interred by Marilyn Almodover plus giveaway

10 Things You Don’t Know about Jack Ashdown:

1.       When Jack was five years old, he managed to get stuck between the washing machine and the dryer.

2.       Jack and his twin sister, Jessica, used to be extremely close until he was forced to go to the States for his own safety.

3.       Jack’s known about his father’s philandering ways since he was quite small, and was asked to keep them secret.

4.       Teasing people and pretending to be a happy-go-lucky sort of guy is the perfect way for Jack to deal with his parents’ problems.

5.       Eleonor used to scare the pants off Jack.

6.       Jack’s never had a pet of his own.

7.       Before the Interment to help him concentrate, his father made him take music lessons. He plays the violin, piano, and trombone.

8.       Jack has one other tattoo, a dagger on his right hip.

9.       Though everyone thinks he’s dated a lot, Jack’s training prevented him from doing normal things like having a girlfriend. Even if he never admits to it, Baxter’s the first girl he’s ever kissed.

10.   Jack’s favorite band is The Libertines.

The Blurb

Time has never been an issue for Baxter Jacobs, but then she never knew she had the ability to Bend it.

As her sixteenth birthday approaches, Baxter inherits a pendant that will change her life. Connected to the pendant is a dark and mysterious young man named Declan Ashdown. Trapped in a Time loop for the past 122 years, Declan needs Baxter’s help to escape. The only problem is, she has no idea how to do it.

To acquire the power she needs to free him, she’ll become one of the Interred, those whose Magical abilities emerge as they come of age. When she does, she’ll discover that Declan isn’t the only one interested in the fact that she’s a Time Bender.

As the Interment arrives, Baxter knows this will be no Sweet Sixteen. A vengeful relative and ruthless Council are determined to control her. Declan’s powerful and charming descendant, Jack Ashdown, claims he can save her. She’ll soon have to decide who she can trust, and how to master her new abilities before Time runs out
