Welcome Guest Author Rachel Carrington

It’s a pleasure to have Rachel Carrington here today sharing about imagination. Waking Up Immortal is her latest release. This book is the first chance I've had to read one of Rachel's books. It definitely won’t be the last. I enjoyed reading about Chloe and the world she lives in. Waking Up Immortal is the first book in the Universal Security series.

Without further ado, here is Rachel.


I interview authors on my blog every Monday, and I usually ask them all the same question. If you could step into any world you wanted, which one would it be and why? I’ve asked myself that same question, and my answer changes depending upon the day or my mood.

Though it’s an impossibility to simply change worlds, the idea is what matters. The thought of choosing which paranormal or fantasy world to exist in is tempting. Would you cross over into the world of the undead? Run with werewolves? Or perhaps you’d prefer a magical world where wizards and witches reigned.

It doesn't matter that we can’t hop-scotch into a fictional reality. The question opens up the imagination, and, for a brief moment, a reader gets to see what journey a writer they enjoy would choose to take if he/she could.

So today, I’ll ask you the same question. If you could step into any world you want, which one would it be? What journey would you take?

Do you imagine yourself at Hogwarts? Or maybe you’d like to rent a room in Mystic Falls, Virginia where all the vampires hang out. Can you see yourself in a parallel universe? How about living a fairytale like the residents of Storybrooke, Maine do on Once Upon a Time? 

You’re only limited by your imagination…and imagination, by its very definition, is limitless.  I hope you see now why I ask the question. 

Book One in the Universal Security Series

I could die today, and it wouldn’t matter. I’d still wake up tomorrow. Some people might consider that a good thing, and the time I took my first bullet, well, I can’t say I complained when I woke up, but that’s the middle of the story. 

At first I didn't want this "gift" which led me to a long search for my father. I thought he could help me. Turns out my father was in prison, and I just happened to get on the bad side of his warden—a huge, cyborg type of guy who could body double for Sylvester Stallone. He didn't want me to see my father, and he was a pretty big obstacle for me to overcome.

So here I am trying to convince this guy, Kier, to let me see my father when all hell breaks loose. Then I suddenly learn I really don't want to see dear old Dad after all. My life isn't in danger, but how I spend the rest of my immortal existence is. The only thing standing between me and certain torture is Kier. 

I don't doubt he'll protect me, but being so close to him makes me forget about things like safety.  And the first time he kisses me turns into heat up the windows type of scene in the front seat of my car.

My immortal existence is safe with Kier. My heart is on shaky ground. Only I could fall in love with a cyborg while my life is going to hell in a handbasket.
