Release Day Launch: 18 Thoughts (My So-Called Afterlife #3) | Jamie Ayres

Introducing 18 Thoughts, the conclusion in Jamie Ayres My So-Called Afterlife series. 

18 Thoughts
(My So-Called Afterlife #3)
By: Jamie Ayres
Release Date: January 27th 2015 
by Curiosity Quills Press

Goodreads Summary:
Olga Gay Worontzoff left the Underworld for her final year of high school anxious for things to return to normal, but fate has other plans. 

The new hottie at school reads her thoughts but nobody else’s. Her best friend wakes up from his coma acting like a completely different person. Caught in a world that’s a mix of familiar and supernatural, she must confront what she will—or won’t—do to bring him back and stare down her own perceived inadequacies to face a couple of tenacious demons, figurative and literal.

Everything she thought she knew about reality will change as she walks the line between past and present, fear and faith, love and loyalty. 

And by the end of a heartbreaking year, she might be forced to realize “normal” in the conventional sense of the word is the one thing she may never achieve.

About the Author:
Jamie Ayres writes young adult paranormal love stories by night and teaches young adults as a Language Arts middle school teacher by day. When not at home on her laptop or at school, she can often be found at a local book store grabbing random children and reading to them. So far, she has not been arrested for this. Although she spent her youthful summers around Lake Michigan, she now lives in Florida with her prince charming, two children (sometimes three based on how Mr. Ayres is acting), and a basset hound. She really does have grandmothers named Olga and Gay but unlike her heroine, she's thankfully not named after either one of them. She loves lazy pajama days, the first page of a good book, stupid funny movies, and sharing stories with fantastic people like you. Her books include the three installments of her My So-Called Afterlife trilogy, 18 Things, 18 Truths, and 18 Thoughts. Visit her online via Twitter, Facebook, or at

To celebrate her book birthday, Jamie is offering one lucky winner a huge 
swag bag valued at $115!
