Intuition by C.M. Omololu Blog Tour and Guest Post


As Cole begins to accept her new life as Akhet, someone who can remember flashes of her past lives, every new vision from her past lives helps explain who she is in this life. As her passion for Griffon grows, she learns to identify other Akhet around her, including Drew, the young self-made millionaire who reveals his startling connection to Cole-he was her husband in Elizabethan England and gave her the ankh necklace that has been returned to her after centuries in hiding. Drew's attentions are overwhelming as he insists that their connection in the past signals their future destiny together, but before she can decide who she truly loves, Cole must learn to harness her unique Akhet abilities if she is to ever understand her role in this strange new world.

Interview for Books Are Sanity
Where did your inspiration come for the series? Did you intend for it to be a series?

I started thinking about reincarnation when a friend’s son died unexpectedly. I wondered what his 13 years were all about, if this is all there was and started thinking that it would be better if this time was just too short for him, that he’d get another chance to do it again. This lead to the beginnings of my philosophy of the Akhet – that everyone has lived many lives, but only a small group of people remember them.  The people that do remember their past lives use that knowledge and the skills they’ve gained over many lifetimes– hopefully for good things, righting the wrongs that humans have done in the past. But of course, there are going to be rogue Akhet who use their skills and knowledge for evil, and that was where my story really began.
I always knew that there would be more than one book – I just didn’t know how many. Once I got to know the characters of Cole and Griffon (and Drew in INTUITION), it was fairly easy to imagine a big-world scenario that their past lives could influence. I like to think that there are a number of stories in the book – the one about Cole as she discovers who she was in the past and who she should be in the present, the story of her relationship with Griffon and how that develops and changes over time and the bigger, overarching  story of trying to prevent some evil  Akhet from doing real damage to our world.  INTUITION has a satisfying ending – no cliff hangers,  but there is definitely room for more from Cole and Griffon. More books in the series will depend on readership and how many people want their story to continue. Because I do have ideas….

Thank you to author C.M. Omololu for taking the time to write this post!!!

Happy Reading!!!
