Dissection of Saving Casey


Today we are going to dissect  

Young Adult Suspense Thriller 
Saving Casey
by Liza O'Connor

otherwise known as me

We'll evaluate a main pillar of my story and ask 
IS THIS REALLY POSSIBLE?

CASS REINCARNATES INTO THE BODY OF A 17 YEAR OLD.
She retains the memories of her 80 years, but none of the teen's.

Real or Utter Rubish?

REAL: I'll provide compelling proof and explanations to support my belief in reincarnation during my Blog Tour March 11-April 5.

However today, I feel silly, so you get the following as proof. 

Animals clearly doing things they shouldn't be doing unless they are humans reincarnated into pets.
Above, we've a swaggering sea captain, a gymnast,  a hedgehog writer, a singer, an alcoholic, and yet another writer. (That's not really surprising given there are millions of us writers.)

And here is a video of a world renowned musician tormented by his/her inability to sing and play the piano in its new life. However, I think he/she can still read music. 

And here's a Salsa dancer. I'm pretty sure if they'd find her a pair of heels, she could wear them just fine.


Clearly, reincarnation occurs and not always in the manner we wish.

Turns out a little over 20% of the population believes in reincarnation. 

I became a believer when once I experienced my soul and my consciousness leaving my body. There's nothing like personal experience to convince you something is possible. I am certain that our soul and our body are separable, because mine went on a short walkabout, got scared, and jumped back in my body.

Peep Rep: Were you by chance on drugs? 

Liza: No, and I can't believe you asked that. Now leave. I didn't invite you to comment today.

Peep Rep: You never invite me.

Liza: True, but normally I state a greeting which you claim means you were invited.

Peep Rep: What greeting is that?

Liza: Ha! I'm not falling for that trick.

Peep Rep: Darn! *Peep Rep hangs head and leaves*

Liza: Now, where was I? Ah Yes....

Why all people don't believe in reincarnation surprises me. 

Almost all religions make mention of it somewhere in their texts (including Christianity and Judaism). 

However, I would say the Asian religions are most in tune with the concept.

Oddly, my initial premise of reincarnation is not what people object to. They argue that other, darker events that occur later in the book, could not happen in real life.

Someday, when I wish to be serious, I may discuss the real events that support my story, but right now I'll just say I have true bits of life to support every key event that occurs in the story.

Except blowing up a cabin. However, I'm pretty sure someone, somewhere, has done that too. 



oh yeah...


Lot's of houses blowing up.

  1. Great post, Liza. Though I do think you were a little rough on peep rep. I had the strange experience of being taken back into past lives. That was quite a shock, as before it happened, I didn't believe in it. Tweeted.

    1. Oh, you know I want to know more about you returning to a past life. Why do you taunt me. Expect an email from me.

      And what about me? My character was impugned when Peep Rep asked me If I was on drugs. No, I'm not going to feel bad about sending him off for the day.

  2. Love the post, Liza. But I think the salsa dancer needs a red skirt not just heels. :)

  3. I agree tiny full skirt and a bra. Plus the high heels. Did you watch the whole thing? That song goes on forever and that dog probably stood long enough to win a world record for a dog dancing on his feet with no means of support.

  4. Definitely high heels! I totally believe in reincarnation! I better be coming back as someone wealthy. My friends and I used to pretend we were warrior princesses in a former life. Oh how the mighty have fallen!!

  5. Did you learn nothing from Saving Casey? Wealthy children struggle to find a purpose in life. Middle-class is so much better.

    1. Either that 20% stat is wrong, or the only people willing to read about reincarnation are those who believe it...hmmmmmm
