Douglas R.: 5 Things Everyone Should Do Before They Die (character guest post)

Hi! I'm Ivey. From the story, Horizon. It is a pretty cool story as much as people say, but one fact a lot of them forget is how boring my life was before I decided to do some of the most craziest things I have ever done in my life. 

And you know what? It was such a relief. I've even made a list of the 5 top things I think everyone has got 
to do. At least once in their lives. 

So here goes:

1. Everyone should switch passports at the airport with a lookalike!

My mom and I were moving from place to place like clueless gypsies—actually, I was the clueless one and 
she knew exactly what the hell she was doing—and she wanted me to go to Chicago. But I had always wanted to travel back home to India. 

Luckily, I stumbled upon a friend who was stuck in the opposite situation. She wanted to go to Chicago to see her dad and her mother wanted to go to Delhi. We were lookalikes and the game was on. 

What a fun time we had at the airport in France, switching travel docs and iPods and caps!

2. Everyone should time travel—after a flight in a private jet—on the very same day. 

I didn't tell you this: when I got to India they abducted me. 

Buy Horizon at Amazon

Who's they? 

The secret agents living among you, making sure the world is safe from extraterrestrial disasters. 

They call themselves the Secret Circle. 

Anyway, they needed me to go back in time on a mission. Time machines can be sickening. I was in the 
hospital wing for hours. But the irony of remembering you ate breakfast yesterday in the future is kinda fun. 

3. Everyone should save the world.

That's the reason the Secret Circle abducted me and sent me back in time to Amazonia. I wasn't alone on 
the mission. There were four others just like me and an entire military base with soldiers from all over the 

I know it's very unlikely to get that kind of shot at saving the world but you can save the world in other 
ways too. For example, do stand-up comedy the next time you board a subway or a quiet bus. Or even at your school or workplace. The world could use some more humor, don't you think?

4. Everyone should fight a dinosaur.

I know, I know. They're extinct. Considering the fact you might be too freaked out to time travel and the 
Secret Circle will never show you the Time Machine anyway no matter what, your only best option is Play 

The pros? 

You don't have to scream for your life and you revive every time you lose. 

5. Everyone should Travel the world. 

It's safe as long as the pilot doesn't have a stroke. It's not sickening. It's not life threatening and anyone can 
do this. 

Except in my case. 

Ever since I was a kid my mom has taken me to China, Croatia, Spain, France, Germany and some places I 
don't even remember anymore. I later realized that she was a Chinese spy who was running away and hiding 
me from our enemies.

I always wondered where those sexy BMWs came from whenever we needed to make a quick one!

Well, I guess it's going to be super difficult to copy what I've done and paste it into your own life. Not everyone gets to have a super cool spy mom. 

That's why God has gifted us with novels. When your life feels pointless they are the perfect escape. Trust me, I know this stuff firsthand on an exaggerated scale. 

And speaking of stories, are you ready to take the journey with me into Amazonia? To face monsters and fight for survival? Are you brave enough to join me?

If you're crazy enough to answer YES then I've got a video for you about what goes down in Amazonia. Plus, you'll also receive a freebie for Horizon in PDF, mobi (Kindle) or ePub (iBooks) formats.

It's been great talking to you,


Ivey xoxo
