I don't do resolutions, however. Anything important shouldn't be put off until the first of the year, and frankly, if I'm not committed to trying something in September, for instance, I can be pretty sure I won't be any more committed in January.
But that notion of starting over? Oh yeah. Maybe it's a holdover from when I was a child and do-overs were so popular. It's another reason why I'm so fond of reunion stories. People get a second chance, the opportunity to do it over and fix what went wrong the first time. I've written a fair few of them, and there are more on my horizon.
A Soul Remembered is about Adam Silver, a young man who's on the hunt for the love of his life. The thing is, it's not the love of his current life. Adam is looking for the soul of the husband he lost over a hundred years ago, the man he hoped to save by developing a chip technology that preserves all the brain activity of its host. When he manages to find him again, in the burly form of Dr. David Bogart, he has two different obstacles to overcome.
First, there's the fact that Bogart doesn't remember anything, a design of the chip technology Adam planned for. The second is how everybody connected to Bogart ends up dead, so much so that he's earned the nickname of "Dr. Death" with the media. Can he trust the man his love has become?
More importantly, can he survive the curse that seems to follow Bogart around?
