What Supernatural Birthday Power Would You Wish For? | Farsighted by Emlyn Chand

Today I am absolutely delighted to bring you news of debut author Emlyn Chand’s new paranormal YA, Farsighted. As well as being a completely original and awesome debut novel, what makes things even cooler is that yesterday (the release of the print version) was also Emlyn’s 27th Birthday.

This got me thinking about how we can celebrate both Emlyn’s birthday AND the release of her debut novel..

& I’d love for you to join in!

Farsighted‘s main character is Alex Kosmitoras, who might be blind, but he can “see” things that others can’t. In other words, he has visions of the future…

**If you could grant Emlyn one birthday wish for a supernatural power that comes to life only on her birthday each year, what would it be and why?**


The coolest thing about granting this power is that it automatically comes true for yourself on your birthday too.

Neat huh?

Here is what I wish for Emlyn (& myself!!)

“Happy Birthday Emlyn! For your birthday I grant you the power to “THINK EMAILWhat does this entail? Well no more typing out emails, or even opening up your computer. Simply think up an email in your mind, think about pressing the send button, et voila! (I know you’ll love this one!)

  1. Ooo, teleportation is a good one. I’d love it if I could get by without requiring sleep but never get tired either. Marianne, one of the characters in Farsighted can read minds, but it’s also a very troubling gift. This was a fun idea Laura, thank you. PS I totally commented with my mind, just as you have granted 😉

  2. Happy Birthday Emlyn. I hope your day is full of sunshine and joy.

    I would wish for the ability to read minds, not for profit or get secret tips from executives, but to see which people are criminals. Especially to find those who commit crimes against children and be able to have them taken off the streets. It would be a wonderful thing to help keep everyone safe.
