The Life After Blog Tour: Guest Post and Giveaway

Wednesday, February 26, 2014

Guys, I am absolutely thrilled today to welcome Katlyn Duncan to the blog, as part of her promotional tour for her fantastic series, The Life After. I love when an author gives an insider's perspective to the characters' minds through real-life events, circumstances and nuances. In this case, Ms. Duncan shows us who our characters are through their favourite films - clever and fun! Today, we're getting to know Jamie, one of the excellent supporting characters in this enticing series.


‘The Sixth Sense’ is at the top of her list, she feels a special connection with Cole Sear since they share similar abilities…

Jamie is a spunky girl who loves to laugh so it’s no surprise that she loves comedies. But ‘Mean Girls’ holds a special place in her heart since she is far from popular in high school.

‘Labyrinth’ is a special movie to Jamie. It was one of her mother’s favorites and she watched it all the time as a kid. Her mom always wanted her imagination to be open to all experiences that life presented to her.

Jamie is a closet romantic and since she spends a lot of time by herself when her dad is working, she loves to cheer herself up with a love that she hopes to one day experience on her own.


After-life just got a lot more complicated.

Maggie is a Soul Collector. It’s her job to transport souls from the Living Realm to the After – but during a mission to find a stolen soul, she ends up stuck in a teen mean girl’s body.

Trapped, Maggie’s soul is catapulted into Ally’s life – and the human world she hasn’t experienced for one hundred years. But, as a descendant of the most powerful beings in the After, Maggie must rescue Ally before the girl’s soul dies…

To survive, Maggie must uncover devastating secrets – because with one soul taken by a terrifying enemy, Maggie’s could be next!

Life after Life

Now Maggie has been given the chance of her after-life to become a Guard, nothing will stand in her way. Not even the undeniable attraction she feels for her trainer and past love—Jackson. But when the battle between Shadowed and Guard begins again which side will she choose?

When her boss, Felix, partners Jackson and Maggie up with Ally and Cooper to investigate terrifying Shadowed activity, she doesn’t think it could get any worse. Jackson and Cooper barely tolerate each other and this time, Maggie isn’t just proving her loyalty to the Guard during one mission...she has a side mission too. One so secret and so dangerous she can’t tell a soul…

A Life for a Life

The battle between Shadowed and Guard has brought destruction and terror to Gate Seven and now Maggie wants revenge. As the only after-life being who can save the souls from ultimate death Maggie comes face to face with her own human body, preserved for a century, waiting for just this moment to arrive.

Yet, how far will Maggie go to exact her revenge on the Shadowed? And when she comes face to face with her past, how will she survive the onslaught of memories she thought long gone?

For when the truth comes out all is not what it seems and Maggie has finally run out of time... She must choose her destiny or watch all she has perish in the fight for her life!
