All Ion Jacobs ever wanted was to be normal. But when you’re capable of killing with your very thoughts, it’s hard to blend in with the crowd.
Running from his past and living in fear of being discovered, Ion knows he will never be an average college student. But when Hawk, the beautiful, mysterious girl next door unearths his darkest secret, Ion’s life is flipped upside-down. He’s shocked to discover a whole world of people just like him — a world in another dimension, where things like levitation, shape-shifting, and immortality are not only possible… they’re normal.
Forced to keep more secrets than ever before, Ion struggles to control his powers in the real world while commuting between realms — until his arch enemy starts a fight he can’t escape. Now he has sealed the fate of the Dimension, severing their connection to the real world, and locking himself inside forever. But a deadly threat hidden in plain sight may cost Ion more than just his freedom — it may cost him his life.

July 1: Author Interview with Jameson C Smith
If the characters of The Blood Race trilogy could jump into any other fictional world, where would they go?
Oh, hands down Narnia. Because that’s where I’m trying to “jump into” every day of the week, yo. I’m still checking those closets.

July 5: Q&A with Author at Unicorn Quester
You also mention on your website that you like to surf and hike. What are some of your favorite…hiking places?
For hiking, the desert is one of my favorites – polar opposite of surfing in every way, ironically! Particularly Badlands National park, and Moab, Utah. Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons also has my heart though. There’s so many incredible spots to hike in the western United States!

July 18: Author Interview at Writings From a God Girl
1. When did you start writing with the hope of becoming an author?
I’ve always written, ever since I was a little kid (even though that’s such a bleh response from cliche-ville, BUT it is a true reponse) I don’t think I thought much about being a published author back then though, I was too busy scribbling stories and getting ink on my fingers.
I started thinking about publishing as a young teenager, because by that point I knew 100% and beyond that writing and sharing stories was my joy and that I needed to do it forever.
