Guest Post and Giveaway *ENDED* of Afterlife: The Academy by T.P. Boje

Have you ever wondered where you go when you die?
Meghan is 16 when it happens to her.
She wakes up on a flying steamboat on her way to a school run by Angels in a
white marble castle.
It is a school everybody has to go to before they are let into Heaven.
On the boat she meets Mick who has been dead for more than a hundred years
but still looks like a teenager. He helps her past the difficult beginning
at the new school in a new world filled with heavenly magic.
One day some of Meghan’s roommates find a mirror in the cellar of the school
and they persuade her to go through it with them – well knowing it is
strictly against the rules of the school. Meghan ends up back on earth where
she meets Jason. But Jason is in danger and Meghan knows something
important. Something that is a matter of life and death. Soon she is forced
to choose between the two worlds. The one she belongs to now and the one she
left.


Have you ever wondered where you go when you die?

Haven’t we all at some point? I used to do it a lot as a kid. Is heaven for real and what is it going to be like once I get there? What kind of a body will I have? What will I look like? Will all of my family come with me? Will I meet my grandmother there?

When I was a child I remember reading Astrid Lindgren’s “The Brothers Lionheart”. To those who don’t know it, it is a book about two brothers that both die and goes to the countryNangijalaa land in “the campfires and storytelling days”. Here the brothers experience great adventures. Together with a resistance group they lead the struggle against the evil Tengil, who rules with the aid of the fearsome fire-breathing dragon Katla. It is really a very beautiful book and I remember how it made me look upon death in a totally different way. Like it could actually be a new adventure.
As I grew up I never thought much about life after death and if there really was one or not. I was busy living my life and thinking about my life here on earth. But then one day not many months ago a thought just popped into my head. What if we have to go to school when we die?
As it so often happens, the thought wouldn’t go away again once it had come into my head, and I started playing with the idea. If it is true that we leave our bodies here on earth, then we must have some new body on the other side, right? And it would probably take some time to get used to that new body. And how about going through walls and doors and stuff? I mean if we become spirits then we would have to learn how to do all those things, right? And what about flying? That is not something that comes to us easily. We would have to practice first, right? And someone would have to teach us. So eventually I started imagining this school that we all had to graduate from in order to be let into heaven, and soon Meghan popped into my head and started walking around on that school that just had to be run by angels. She soon made some friends and fell in love (as it often happens when you are sixteen). And that was when the problems began. Because the boy was still human, living on earth, so howcould they ever be together?
That was when I realized that a book-series was born. And just like the book “The Brothers Lionheart from my childhood, it was about how dying is only the beginning of the next greatadventure.
