Guest Post: Kirsten Miller (Plus Giveaway!*)

Hi Everyone,

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.) ouroborossociety 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.

youngmozart 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!

    You had me at ‘sinister tale of true love, reincarnation and

    one for me, for sure.
    I like the idea of talent at a really young age as well. Fab post!

  4. Great guest post! I am a true believer in reincarnation and…Wow! This is a book that I definitely have to add to my TBR pile! (A signed one would look oh-so-much better!)

  5. Ooh, past lives. Holy intrigue! I’ve often wondered if I’m drowning in excess karma left over from a past life. Brilliant post. Can’t wait to read this darkling gem.

  6. I’ve been hearing so many good things about this book. It’s an intriguing concept. I LOVE the cover and can’t wait to get my hands on a copy.

  7. Congrats on your very first guest post it was very insightful, the concept of your book is very intriguing, i agree, its amazing what the human mind can accomplish regardless of age, i haven’t read the replacement but i love that its chilling right up my ally, and of course the eternal ones, is already on my TBR list and it sounds amazing, thank you so much for the lovely contest! :)

  8. I just got a, “Picked Just For You,” email from Amazon about this book. And I plan to add it to my ever growing TBR list. I love weird! (Shucks, I’ve been told I am weird.)

  9. Weird plus reincarnation sounds like a good read! I’m looking forward to reading this, either as the freebie you’re offering (fingers crossed) or when it comes out on shelves.

  10. The book sounds interesting. So far I’ve read the seven chapters of the eternal ones that are on internet and I can’t get my mind off it. Pick me up, please! :D
    Thank you for doing the giveaway. :)

  11. awesome Read
    Hey Kristen!
    this novel sounds great!! I am very interested to read your novel, and escape reality for a few hours. from what you mention it sinus awesome and provides different genre outlets. I can,t wait to read this. I would love to be considered for a copy. you rock, and keep writing because your words deserve to be read.

  12. Ah!
    I’ve heard soooo much about this book and I can’t wait to read it!
    I also cannot believe that The Eternal Ones, The Replacement and
    Nightshade are all going to be in one package!

  13. I’ve been waiting for this book for months. What sucks about books that are released from August on is that summer has to end to finally get those books. However, this one sounds like it’s worth the school year starting to get to.

  14. Past lives and reincarnation! This book sounds awesome! I’ve been wondering if a piece of my ferret that passed away is in my new baby ferret. He was my best friend. The baby was born 10 days after Tootles went to the rainbow bridge.
    Thanks for the contest!

  15. I bet it’s a great book!
    I hope I get a chance to win one of the giveaways :D

  16. Huh. That does sound interesting. It’s really the first I’m hearing of this book, but I’ll look for it when it comes out… Although I really would love an arc…

  17. Sweet!
    I’ve always been fascinated by the idea of reincarnation/eternal life the whole shibang. What’s even cooler if you think about it is that reincarnation is scientifically plausible. Think about it. We’re always taught that energy cannot be destroyed, it’s constant. So what happens to our energy when we die? Okay so maybe I’m a bit of a science nerd but I thought it was a sweet idea. ^.^ I cannot wait to read The Eternal Ones and the Replacement for that matter. XD They’re both at the top of my TBR list. Great guest post! And thanks for sharing in the ARC love! ^.^

  18. Wow!
    This post has totally piqued my interested! Sounds like quite a different kind of story than what I am used to! Would love to be entered!

  19. Secret societies and past lives sounds highly intriguing (in addition to the love element to the story I’m naturally attracted to). Any book that makes you think while they search for answers usually keeps me entertained. I’m really looking forward to reading this now!
