Genre: YA, science fiction
Format: paperback, new cover paperback, kindle
Release Date: February 8, 2013
Before she was kidnapped, Jillian Marie Antel Blairington was just an average bright, brave, headstrong child. She was excited for life in a new house with her Momma and new Daddy. Afterward, she’s all that … and so much more.
Held in a scientific facility, Jillian discovers her past-a family she never knew and a power she doesn’t understand. With her ability now activated, she can enter and even shape a person’s dreams. Jillian’s been kidnapped, and her Gift has been triggered, so she can locate and save Benjamin Connelly, a brother she never even knew she had. She’d better master this strange ability quickly, though, because her life isn’t the only one at stake. Her babysitter, Danielle Matheson, is being held as a hostage to ensure Jillian’s full cooperation. Slowly, Jillian begins to learn more about her captor and the other genetically altered children held at the facility.
Join Jillian as she tries to survive the training being forced upon her, find her unknown brother, escape with Danielle, and work her way back to a normal life once more.

Q & A:
The best thing about writing this book?
I enjoyed getting to know the characters better. Jillian came to life years earlier in a series of short stories, but I got to see how she grew up in the intervening years. Danielle was a newcomer, so it was a joy to see her go from just a name to a character with her own likes, dislikes, and quirks.
Where did you get your idea for this story?
I wanted to write about a kidnapping, and I knew it would feature Jillian because I’d already fallen in love with her character voice.
What would you tell aspiring writers out there?
Read, write, watch movies, experience life, rinse and repeat.
What is your favorite book?
Oh, and here I was doing so good on those questions. That’s a tough question and it changes a lot. I’d say Stuart Hill’s Cry of the Icemark was a lot of fun, so I guess I’ll go with that.
Coffee, Tea, or Hot Chocolate?
Decaf coffee when there’s half and half around. Tea when I’m trying to review something. Hot chocolate when I’m watching snow fall.
I want to thank Julie C. Gilbert for allowing me to promote her book on my blog. I hope this post has inspired you to go out and read Ashlynn’s Dreams!
