Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.

Guest Post and Giveaway Reap by Christina Channelle

Published October 11, 2013


Foreign, or rather unfamiliar, would be the word I would use to describe how I felt.

Faintly, I could hear the glimmer of voices surrounding me in this dark haze, caressing my ears like skin against silk. I felt like I was in a cocoon of sorts, protectively enveloped, quietly drifting in some far-off place. I wanted to stay that way forever. 

But we all know that what you want never really seems to happen in the real world.

Something’s not right in Mia’s head.

The first thing is that her name isn’t Mia. In fact, she has no clue what her name is—who she is. All that she knows is that she’s not like the ones who found her: Dante with his kind blue eyes, Amy with her child-like demeanor, James with his questioning gaze.

And Briggs.

The one she cannot decipher no matter how hard she tries.

As Mia tries to fit in with these people, a strange occurrence is amidst outside. And as she finally remembers who she is …

Well, let’s just say that things get a little more complicated.

Finding the subject, building the plot

This book is told in three parts, Forgetting, Remembering, and Knowing. Originally, it was supposed to be a contemporary story until another story came to mind and I thought it’d be a neat idea to try and combine the two into one unique adventure.

I wanted to write a paranormal book, but something atypical. Something that also brought a lot of human elements into it. What would you do if you woke up with no memories, surrounding by people you’ve never seen before?

Mia has to tackle this task, and with no voice of her own. 

I don’t want to talk too much about it because this story is mysterious in a way. I want the reader to become invested, question what is going on in this world. This story is about figuring out who you really are. It’s about love, but also loss. About not being willing to let go.
And about consequences.
