And now let’s hear more about The Memory Painter:

womack coverABOUT THE MEMORY PAINTER: Bryan Pierce is an internationally famous artist, whose paintings have dazzled the world. But there’s a secret to Bryan’s success: Every canvas is inspired by an unusually vivid dream. Bryan believes these dreams are really recollections―possibly even flashback from another life―and he has always hoped that his art will lead him to an answer. And when he meets Linz Jacobs, a neurogenticist who recognizes a recurring childhood nightmare in one Bryan’s paintings, he is convinced she holds the key. Their meeting triggers Bryan’s most powerful dream yet―visions of a team of scientists who, on the verge of discovering a cure for Alzheimer’s, died in a lab explosion decades ago. As his visions intensify, Bryan and Linz start to discern a pattern. But a deadly enemy watches their every move, and he will stop at nothing to ensure that the past stays buried.

A finalist for the RWA Prism Award for Best First Novel and Best Time Travel/ Steampunk Novel….“Well-drawn historical flashbacks, engaging characters, and a twisty ending make this thrilling blend of neuroscience, romance, and ancient worlds good bets for Da Vinci Code and Outlander fans.” ―Booklist…To find out more and read an excerpt visit www.GwendolynWomack.com.

Take A Pill & Find Your Soulmate

Gwendolyn Womack

Have you ever been somewhere for the first time and knew in your bones that you’d been there before? Have you ever met someone and felt so comfortable that you only could have known that person in the past? —What else but a shared past could explain such deep-rooted familiarity?

Reincarnation is a long-standing belief across the world for many people. With the idea comes the next question—if we do return life after life, then do souls find the same souls again and again? Is there one soul in particular that is a twin to ours? In a world ripe with polarity, the idea of a soul having two parts, its Ying and Yang, is a tantalizing one. In Greek mythology Zeus cut the soul in half, and according to the ancient Greeks, we will spend our lives searching for our other half. The act of love is that search to find our counterpart and feel whole again.

The birth of the idea for The Memory Painter was what if neuroscientists created a wonder drug that would enable anyone to remember his or her lifetimes? With that floodgate of past memories accessible in our minds, then we would be able to recognize our soulmate, who perhaps we have unknowingly traveled with through time. In fact, we would be able to recognize everyone who had ever played a part in our journey—for better or worse. What if we could see our karmic cycles? The mistakes we were making lifetime after lifetime?

That was the starting point for The Memory Painter. Take a pill and remember lifetimes, speak a multitude of languages, and have knowledge of every ability our soul has ever possessed. What if within ourselves we are superheroes, “Reincarnation Superheroes” with boundless talents that span thousands of years?

The book has been categorized as many things… a thriller, a love story, historical fiction, sci-fi, but at its heart, The Memory Painter is an adventure through history around the world and asks the question, what if we could remember it all?

To win a digital copy of The Memory Painter, leave a comment: If you could remember past lives and loves (should you believe in them), would you want to?

  1. I don’t think I’d want to remember a lot of past lives. I think all of those memories would be overwhelming.

  2. If you could remember past lives and loves (should you believe in them), would you want to? NO! But I need to add, I remember the 18 year old me, High School and all. Should that count??? LOL

  3. no, i already have too much in present live why trying to learn more when we couldn’t chaneg teh past anyway… too complicated

  4. I try to avoid remembering most of this life, so, no. But I would love to read about Brian’s. This sounds like a story I would enjoy.

  5. What a fascinating book! I would not want to remember all my past lives. It would be too overwhelming.

  6. I’ve had dreams in the past that were so vivid I could swear they were past life dreams. And to answer the question, no, I don’t want to remember..
