- Fizzy Thoughts: TLC Tour Stop - The Memorist

TLC Tour Stop - The Memorist

Friday, November 07, 2008

Today I'm pleased to be a TLC tour stop for M.J. Rose and her new book The Memorist. Check out the rest of the tour stops here.

Yesterday, I posted my review of The Memorist. After finishing the book, I was curious about where Ms. Rose was planning to go with the series, or if she's even planning to go anywhere at all.

So I asked:

I swear I read somewhere that you had planned three books in the series. Am I totally off-base (I can't be...there are still unanswered questions about Malachai!)? Will there be a final book (or multiple books?) in the Reincarnationist/Memorist series?

And Ms. Rose answered:

There are a possible 12 books in the series. 12 memory tools - each book about another memory tool. I'm contracted for three - which means there is definitely one more coming after The Memorist. Ideally I'd like to write something else after #3 and take a little break and then go back to more in the Reincarnationist series.

I also asked:

Is there any chance you'd like to offer my blog readers a quick teaser as to what the next book will be about? I know I'd sure like to be given a hint as to what's up next.

And Ms. Rose kindly obliged:

As far as the next book after The Memorist... here's a little bit... it's about one of the minor characters in The Memorist... FBI Special Agent Lucien Glass.... and it takes place in NYC and Malachai is in Book #3 also. In Book #3 no one has any spontaneous reincarnation memories. How's that for a tease?

Hah! It's a wonderful tease, because Lucien was my favorite character, even though he had a bit part. I initially thought he'd end up with Meer, although where I came up with that idea, I have no...well, idea.

So, thanks to M.J. Rose for answering my questions and sparking my interest about Book #3. I just love knowing what I have to look forward to (which is probably why I like to read the end of a book first).

Also, a big, BIG thanks for sending extra books. Because now I get to give away books (it's one of my favorite things, you know).


The Giveaway

You want? I have 2 sets of both books to give away. And yes, you get both The Reincarnationist and The Memorist...all for the low, low price of one comment.

Let's engage our imaginations and say we all believe in reincarnation. Leave a comment telling me who or what you would like to come back as. Or even whose life you would like to have lived. Be creative! Entertain me!


I will pick two winners from the comments on Sunday. And I'll be postponing the weekly book closet giveaway until tomorrow morning, so there's still time to get in on that action, too.

Now I'm off to think about what I want to be reincarnated as.

I swore to myself that I would not participate in any more giveaways until I've made a dent in my current pile but you just HAD to post this giveaway.. didn't you? LOL.

If I had my pick, I would probably be a maple tree overlooking a babbling brook somewhere. Longevity, peace.. being at one with nature all that crap.

You are going to laugh, and you CANNOT hold this against me, but I think I used to be a Medici in renaissance Florence. Why? because I have always been obsessed with that era, that city and that family for no apparent reason and why else would I be able to speak Italian fluently in my dreams? Hmmmmm

dawn said...

First, I love the Q&A ... and what a tease about what is to come in the third book.

I'd come back as someone who can sing (more than the one always-off-key that I'm capable of). Hmmm, how 'bout Sheryl Crow or Natalie Merchant?

Chris said...

This was great! I don't know what I'd like to come back as, but I think I'd take something not human. Perhaps a bird or some kind of exotic monkey :p Just as long as it has a decent life span. I just put these books on my wishlist yesterday! Maybe I'll win them now!

If I had to live any person's life I would have to say Audrey Hepburn. Or maybe Shirley Temple. Both lived such wonderful lives even after they got out of Hollywood (which alone would be part of the reason I'd like to have lived their life).

I'd like to be a much-loved house cat. Such a charmed life my little gal leads. Although, I say that and she did get her tail stepped on, today.

bethany said...

Sure I would love them!!! :) you are so sweet to offer.

Great interview by the way, this sounds like an excellent read!

bethany said...

oh, and I would like to live the life of a lone cowboy. I would say cowgirl, but the wild west was too dangerous for a lone girl. I guess If I had a nice cowboy...

Dar said...

Maybe this lucky Canadian can be lucky again. lol. I'd love to read these. What would I come back as-hell my dog for sure!!! He is the biggest, most spoiled baby there is. What I wouldn't give to be him even for a day. lol. Great giveaway and interview.

Chele by the Sea said...

OK. I'm very competitive so I took this real serious. :) (even to the point of research!)
Here it is. I would like to come back as a deer that live in the mountains. I have always heard of the deer (a hart or a hind m/f) and they are capable of climbing very steep hill sides and are known for their beauty and sure footedness. I wish to be a Hind one day so I can experience climbing to amazing heights with strength and agility. These are all the things that I wish (metaphorically) for my life now, but if I could come back as a Hind, it would be quite fulfilling.

OK. I would so totally come back as a house cat. Every single day, my kitties must decide to either a. sleep, b. eat, c. lounge around and do nothing in particular, or d. play. What a life!!
Also, great contest. I've been meaning to pick up the Reincarnationist. :)

Care said...

I can't think of a thing/person - or rather can think of too many! can't decide... Maybe a dolphin off the coast of Costa Rica. I am particularly fond of the 1880s and 90s in the ritzy glitzy hey days of NYC, Newport or in the salons of Paris or Venice.

Fyrefly said...

Great giveaway! My answer always used to be that I'd like to come back as a dolphin, since they always seem to be having so much fun. If I could have lived someone else's life, I think I'd have liked to be an explorer/naturalist - getting to see places and animals that no one in your culture had ever seen before.

In a real sense, people who have read good literature have lived more than people who cannot or will not read. It is not true that we have only one life to live; if we can read, we can live as many more lives and as many kinds of lives as we wish. ~S.I. Hayakawa

The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.
~St. Augustine

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.
~Mark Twain
