Release Day – Fifteen by Jen Estes

So far, I’m keeping to my 2015 vow not to buy more books, but this one is definitely going on my TBR list (my fascination with dreams demands it). There’s also a giveaway at the end!

Book Title: Fifteen
Author: Jen Estes
Genre: YA Fantasy
Hosted by: Book Enthusiast Promotions


Legend has it if you die in your dreams, you die in real life. Fifteen-year-old Ashling Campbell knows that’s not true because when she closes her eyes each night, she doesn’t dream about public nudity or prom dates. Instead, she’s catapulted to the front row of her future self’s execution – fifteen years from now – where monsters have taken control of her hometown and she, or rather, her 30-year-old counterpart, is their public enemy number one.

For three months and counting, it’s been the same dream… until she hangs a dreamcatcher above her bed. Ash falls asleep to discover she’s no longer a mere spectator in these dreams – now she’s actually astral-projecting into the body of her future self. Each night, she goes on the run with a ragtag group of rebels – who have no idea she’s really a high school sophomore and not their noble warrior. With the help of her best friend and a mysterious somnologist, Ash learns to manipulate her sleep through lucid dreaming. She has to make it through each night so that she can wake up and find a way to change the future. For every action she does in the present day, she falls asleep to discover it had an equal impact fifteen years later. It’s up to her to manage her two worlds and make sure she’s still got a place in both.

Meet the Author

Born and raised in the Midwest, Jen had to choose between staring at corn or reading books. Corn husks just didn’t have the appeal of the Baby-Sitters Club, and so a bookworm was born. Reading later turned into writing and in 2011, Jen published her first novel with Camel Press. After releasing four books in the mystery genre, Jen finally gave in to the literary demands of her inner teenager with her YA debut, FIFTEEN (coming January 2015 from Curiosity Quills).

Jen is an active member of the National Writers Union. When she isn’t writing, Jen enjoys sci-fi in all its mediums, attempting yoga, using her passport, watching baseball, and reading a good book. She lives in Illinois with her husband Nathan under the tyranny of their three cats: Wrigley, Ivy and Captain Moo. To balance the feline:human ratio, they are expecting their first child in the early spring. You can find Jen on the web at, on Tumblr as AuthorJenEstes, and tweeting under @jenestesdotcom.

      I know, I know. It’s not your preferred type of read. What I want to know is when I’ll be spotlighting Jansen Schmidt’s world release…?

      1. Hopefully sometime this year. I need to find a good (cheap) editor to take a look before I present her to the world. I’m close though.

        How do you feel about cowboy books? Contemporary western romance? Native American mysteries? I got some lined up.


        1. CJ Burright says:

          Yay! Super-exciting! I don’t read a lot of cowboy books, although I did read Lonesome Dove years and years ago…at least, I’m pretty sure that was the name of it. Hey, I grew up in the country and have some Nebraska family roots, so I’m sure I can relate. Plus, I had a horse once upon a time. That makes me at least half-cowgirl right there. Somewhere down the ancestral line on my dad’s side there’s some Native American blood too and I always thought Tonto rocked, so yeah! Give me a mystery.
