Blog Tour Guest Post with Megan Miranda, Author of Soulprint (and GIVEAWAY!)

Welcome to the Soulprint blog tour! I enjoyed this book - read my review HERE - and I hope you all will give it a chance! In this post, read about Megan Miranda's thoughts on reincarnation in the Soulprint world!

Meet Megan!

If you lived in a world with Soulprint technology, what would you want your soul to be reincarnated as?

So many possibilities! But seeing as I’m writing this in the lobby of a building where my daughter is taking gymnastics lessons, I’m going to say… In my next life, I would love for my soul to belong to a professional athlete. 

A little backstory: I grew up with two very athletic parents. They met and bonded over their mutual love for sports. I, in turn, grew up loving sports. As a child, I have memories of sitting on the bleachers at a softball game, watching my mom sliding into home plate after hitting an inside-the-park-homerun (she broke her wrist (but she was called safe)). On Sundays, I’d drive with my dad to his soccer games, where occasionally I’d fill in as a linesman if the refs were short a person.
But in an unexpected twist of fate (unexpected to my parents, anyway), despite all the potential genetics working in my favor, I have zero hand-eye coordination. I’m also pretty klutzy. I will also throw my hands up over my head and screech if anything is thrown in my general direction. So, you know. Not so much athleticism going on over here.

A brief story that best summarizes my attempts at athletic pursuits: My mom tries to teach me to catch a ball. “Put the glove in front of your face,” she says. I don’t. My brain says, There’s a baseball flying at your face. Put your hand up. My hand does not move. I get a black eye.

But man, do I love watching sports. And I can’t help but think how awesome that would be to do as a job. So, next life: Professional athlete, please and thank you.

Ah, but here’s another unexpected twist of fate: that athletic gene I’m missing? Apparently it skipped me and went straight to my daughter. I’m constantly amazed by how easily she picks up new things. At least I can live a little vicariously now. 

But if my soul gets a Round 2, I wouldn’t mind experiencing a little of that myself.

A new literary, sci-fi thriller from acclaimed author Megan Miranda.

With the science of soul-fingerprinting a reality, Alina Chase has spent her entire life imprisoned for the crimes her past-self committed.

As she gets to know one of the boys, sparks fly, and Alina believes she may finally be able to trust someone. But when she uncovers clues left behind from her past life that only she can decipher, secrets begin to unravel.
