Celebrating Indie Author Excellence – Caitlin Lynagh – Anomaly (The Soul Prophec

Carrying on the theme of INDIE EXCELLENCE, today, I’m immensely excited to highlight the debut young/adult, fantasy/paranormal novel of a young, Welsh Author called CAITLIN LYNAGH! Her debut novel Anomaly: The Soul Prophecies was published in January of 2016:Who is Caitlin Lynagh:CAITLIN LYNAGH was born in Cardiff and graduated from Keele University with a BSc in Biology and Geology in 2013. Since graduating, Caitlin has been writing and recently won a Young Writer’s Grant. In her spare time, she runs a book review blog (The Book Igloo), enjoys travelling and has recently spent six weeks in the Amazon rainforest. Caitlin has recently started her own Facebook group (/anomaly science) which is already attracting interest. She hopes this will become a discussion platform for the science in her book.Caitlin currently lives in Lytham and was educated at Arnold School in Blackpool.Caitlin draws on her science knowledge for Anomaly to create an emotional story which queries where the possibility of an afterlife lies in science, rather than faith.ANOMALY – THE SOUL PROPHECIES:In Caitlin Lynagh’s young adult fiction novel, Anomaly, Alice Lynam has been dead for two years. The afterlife is complicated, time behaves differently and the deceased souls have important information concerning humanity’s future. Certain individuals are set to change the world and Alice’s childhood sweetheart, Kyle, happens to be one of them.However, Kyle’s grief has set him on a path that can only bring frustration and unhappiness. On Kyle’s twenty-first birthday, he receives an unusual notebook which once belonged to Alice. Kyle discovers that two pages are missing, and after a freak accident followed by many strange occurrences, Kyle is forced to revisit his past and concludes that his life is not as coincidental as it seems. Alice needs to find a way to get through to Kyle and place him on the right path.If she gets it wrong, all could be lost… Anomaly is a young adult, paranormal fantasy that draws upon both science and religion. Anomaly’s moralisation is centered on the choices we make when young people move into adulthood. Interestingly, the science does not dismiss the principles of faith but neither does the moralisation disrespect the science, making it a fascinating read for both young male and female readers alike.Anomaly is the first release in a forthcoming series entitled “The Soul Prophecies” and is a young-adult paranormal fantasy. Caitlin (24) runs a popular book-review blog (The Book Igloo) and already has thousands of followers on Twitter and Tumblr. She graduated from Keele University in 2013 with a science degree but per passion lies in writing. Anomaly draws on her science knowledge to create an emotional story which queries whether the possibility of an afterlife lies in science rather than faith.REVIEWS:“Reading ‘Anomaly’ made me feel genuinely happy. There’s an inspirational message at its centre and the rich language, three-dimensional characters and stunningly unique ideas help to bring this message to the surface. The novel isn’t, however, a mere study in notions of Positive and Negative energy, relationships or the afterlife. It is a truly enjoyable read, tense in the right places, sad in others, but always warm, and always masterfully written.I would recommend this book to anyone who would like to try something new and genre-bending. It was the best book I’ve read in a long time.” – Georgia”Anomaly is a book that manages to avoid the dangerous trap of the paranormal genre and create a story that is engaging and entertaining, whilst still being more than a little unnerving at times.” – C.S. Woolley“I would recommend the book to anyone who enjoys a nerdy paranormal romance, it’s different because there’s a mature approach to the idea of an afterlife but without the clichés and no mention of angels or God or heaven, it’s cleverly appro
