Since I’m a huge supernatural fiction reader, I constantly find myself toying with the idea that there may be other types of beings out there, or at the very least, that supernatural things can manifest from great magic or powerful beliefs. So, I’m thrilled to have author K.L. Glanville to share her views on this way of thinking. Check it out, and don’t forget the awesome giveaway at the end of the post.
I will openly admit it: my favorite genre for reading and writing is supernatural fiction. I enjoy looking for the fantastical in the real world and putting it into fiction. My latest book, 2108: Eyes Open, definitely has some supernatural elements in it. At first glance, it doesn’t seem to have as much as my previous book…or does it?
Jewel, the main character of 2108: Eyes Open, is pretty pragmatic. Practical. A naturalist, or as they’re called in my book, a Natural. She values the natural word and the purity of being as nature intended. She hasn’t altered herself genetically or had any technology implanted in her body, as others in her time have. As for the supernatural, Jewel believes there may be something supernatural in the world or universe at large, but it doesn’t really seem to have much to do with her and her life. She’s fine leaving well enough alone.
However…when strange things start to happen around and to her, she gets quite surprised, and in some cases, doesn’t even realize it might just be something supernatural going on. Like when a person gets transported from one place in the world to another. Is that supernatural or some other kind of phenomena? Another time, she has some kind of vision of someone speaking to her. Or was it her imagination? How often are we caught like this, drifting through life looking at the normal and natural until, bam, something hits us like a bucket of ice water—something we don’t understand or doesn’t fit in our present frame of reference. Sometimes we’re able to ignore it, but if we let it, these instances can make us stop and think, and look differently at what’s going on around us. They can make us question. Sometimes we find new answers and perspectives. Sometimes we’re left with only more questions yet to be answered.
I hope you’ll enjoy journeying with Jewel in 2108: Eyes Open as her eyes get opened in new and exciting ways!
It’s the year 2108. I just turned 16. That means I can access the autopilot on my Aerokopa. So now, I can both fly and scope the Dat-X at the same time. But what good is that when I don’t even have a date to my best friend’s party of the century? Okay, well, one of the Holdouts offered to go with me . . . but there’s NO WAY I’m going with one of them! And then there are the Trollers docked at the quay. They’re most likely spies working with the Aliens, bringing nothing but trouble. But with this visit, they may even bring war. It would be treason to talk to them, let alone . . . befriend one. But what’s a curious girl to do? Did I tell you I have a propensity for trouble?
