My name is Kirsten Miller. I’m the author of The Eternal Ones, and this is the first time I’ve “guest-posted” on another author’s blog, so I’m feeling a little awkward right now.
Fortunately, I’m a big fan of Brenna’s latest novel, The Replacement. As many of you probably know, it’s an extremely weird and wonderful book. Which is great. I love weird books, heck I even like to write weird books. (I’m thinking my next project might be a nice, gruesome horror novel.) So I don’t feel I’m too out of line when I say that if you share my interest in all things bizarre, you might like my latest book.
The Eternal Ones is a sinister tale of true love, reincarnation, and secret societies. What kind of secret societies, you ask? (Or was that just in my head? Sometimes it’s hard to tell.) The Ouroboros Society (whose symbol is a silver snake swallowing its own tail) is an organization that claims to be devoted to the scientific study of reincarnation. As you might imagine, that’s only a very small part of the story.
I’ve always been fascinated by tales of people born with inexplicable talents. (Think of Mozart composing music at age five. Or kids who earn graduate degrees in physics before they’re old enough to drive.) What if such skills could only be built over multiple lifetimes? And what if the people who possessed them were gathered together and granted membership in an elite club?
These were the questions that inspired the Ouroboros Society, and the answers I offer in The Eternal Ones probably aren’t the ones you’d expect.
If all this piques your interest, check out the Ouroboros Society’s website or my website. And be sure to drop by my blog for your own “past life reading.” I’m offering them free of charge to all visitors brave enough to send me a picture.
(By the way . . . Brenna’s last life? Let’s just say that if I were her, I’d avoid the entire
state of Kentucky.)
Thanks for the invitation to post, Brenna. I’ll see you on my blog in September!
*Brenna here—I’ve been informed that I can have two signed copies of The Eternal Ones as prizes, so I’ll be giving away one copy to a random winner from today’s comments, and the other to someone who comments on my interview with Kirsten on Friday!
