About the Author
K. J. Draeghan was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia, in 1991. Soon after this she moved to the United States, where she grew up. Due to her tempestuous home environment she became very familiar with stories, taking particular interest in ones that drew her into a different world. Finding solace in writing shaped her into a wordsmith, her ability to write coming naturally to her. Later in life she was often credited by her professors as having a “gift” for writing. Her results of the English aptitude test she took for college were quite nearly flawless – surpassing even university-level graduates.
Draeghan now lives in Japan and teaches English to children. She is currently working on the second book in the Beyond Oblivion Trilogy.

About the Book
Futureless (Beyond Oblivion Trilogy, #1)
by K.J. Draeghan
ebook, 496 pages
Published July 28th 2014 by K. J. Draeghan
In a world far, far away, there exists a giant mass of land that five unique races call their home – Ilreya.
Long ago, Ilreya was torn asunder by the gnashing jaws of a vicious war: The Blood War. The five nations of this land had never known true peace, their racism and distrust creating great rifts between them. With this war, the rifts grew wider still. When all the continent seemed about to perish at the hands of its inhabitants, a treaty was struck. This treaty, despite ending the bloodshed, did not mend the hate the races felt for each other and soon all contact ceased between them.
Now, many centuries later, war threatens to rear its hideous head yet again. The barbarous William Blaise, current ruler of the weredragon nation, has grown mad with his desire for power. With his awesome might he plans to bring the other races of Ilreya to their knees and claim the entire continent as his own.
There is only one way he can be stopped: A group of youths from the Ilreyan nation of Coruka must band together and bring an end to the monster’s rule before war begins anew. Though they will face incredulous peril and devastating trials, success is their only option. If they fail, if they cannot find it within themselves to defeat such a formidable foe, the only world they’ve ever known will languish under the weight of the chains Blaise will bind it in.
Although Futureless can be classified as an Epic Fantasy Adventure, it also has intrigue, action, magic, therianthropy, and a bit of romance.
As it is an Epic Fantasy it is set in a different world; meaning all new places, currency, languages, etc. Although there are some familiar species, like the werewolf, there are also brand new creatures – including what is called a Kuljian. Kuljians are evil humanoid creatures that have traits resembling both vampires and zombies, but also unique qualities not seen in anything else.

Chatting with the Author
I was very happy to be able to chat with K.J with a few really fun questions to help people get to know her better.
1. What’s something that amazes you?
2. When do you find yourself singing?
I sing almost all of the time. I love to sing; I find it helps me to relax and lift my spirits simultaneously.
3. Who is the most famous person you ever met?
I met the Trailer Park Boys cast backstage after one of their shows on their Santa Claus tour. I had the good fortune to meet Mike Smith, Robb Wells, John Paul Tremblay, John Dunsworth, and Patrick Roach. They were incredible.
4. What is your favorite snack food?
Spicy chips (usually Jalapeno flavored)
5.How do you like to relax?
I often relax by singing or reading.
6. What is the scariest scene you remember from a movie as a kid?
Gmork from The NeverEnding Story. Terrified me for weeks.
7. Which animal scares you the most? Why?
Centipedes. They’re really fast, they bite (only arthropods with poisonous claws), they live for YEARS, they regenerate lost limbs, and above all they just really creep me out.
8. If you could change your first name, what would you change it to?
Jacqueline so people would call me Jack.
9. What season do you prefer? Why?
I love Autumn. It has the most days with perfect temperatures and I find it very beautiful when around deciduous trees (though winter is a very close second).
