THE ANATHEMAS, A NOVEL ABOUT REINCARNATION AND RESTITUTION
by Victor E. Smith
My first novel, THE ANATHEMAS, A NOVEL ABOUT REINCARNATION AND RESTITUTION was published by Outskirts Press in 2010 and is available in hardcopy and ebook on Amazon.com. I created a personal website- victorsmith.com- that features a blog on all things-writing. I am an active member of and contributor of the Visionary Fiction Alliance at http://visionaryfictionalliance.wordpress.com.
How great to be enjoying the “ultimate luxury” of writing full time (too bad some us have to get so old before that happens). I am well into my next novel, THE PERFECT, with publication projected for the end of this year, and material enough beyond that to keep me going for decades.

Having been diagnosed with cancer, Cass Goldman decides to opt out of any futile medical care and end her life. While she has some thoughts on afterlife, she never expects to reincarnate into the body of a seventeen-year-old girl named Casey Davidson.
When she awakens in a hospital, Cass discovers two disturbing facts: One, she is now inside the body of a troubled teenager, and two, the former owner of this body committed suicide, but only Cass knows that. Everyone else believes Casey has survived, but suffered a complete memory loss. Cass has two choices: take on Casey’s life and turn it around, or to confess the truth about her reincarnation and end up in a mental asylum. Given this second chance to life, Cass decides to take on the future life of Casey … the frightening ghoul-faced teen with short, black, spiky hair.
Every person around Cass has an ulterior motive and discovering the truth of Old Casey’s life is more complicated than the “new math” she is forced to learn in school. In addition, Cass has to contend with raging teenage hormones and the prior crimes of Old Casey, which she might not remember, but everyone else certainly does.
