Rememberers Is Not Really Religious – Sorry

I just wanted to clarify something about my new book Rememberers which is coming out this June.
Yes, I believe it’s 5-star stuff (lol) But, I’ll refrain from rating it. But I do want to address something as well as give the playlist of songs that inspired its creation. The major thing I want to address is the religious aspect of the novel. While I hate to disappoint anyone, Rememberers is NOT meant to be a religious book. It’s an urban fantasy thriller that has supernatural elements such as eternal return and demonic possessions, etc. To my mind, to write a book with such things and not address the religious overtones is to ignore the elephant in the room. So, I chose not to ignore religion, I decided to use it. So, yes, there are biblical figures in the book, but there’s also a goddess. And as the series moves forwards, there will be combinations of biblical figures and mythical creatures. The comparison to the Da Vinci Code is only in the sense that both books claim that religious info has been kept from the masses by a select few. But beyond that, Rememberers is its own thing. It combines science, philosophical, and religious themes in a fictional world. Publishers Weekly called it armchair philosophy; but I didn’t take offense as I was in my armchair most of the time while writing it. Anyway without further adieu…the playlist:
