What message would you give to your past self?

In just two weeks, the ingenious novel THE FIRST FIFTEEN LIVES OF HARRY AUGUST will be hitting shelves internationally, published in the UK by Orbit and in the US by our good friends at Redhook. This extraordinary journey of one unforgettable character has already captured the hearts and minds of many early readers.

No matter what Harry August does or the decisions he makes, when death comes, he always returns to where he began, a child with all the knowledge of a life he has already lived a dozen times before.

Inspired by Harry and his astonishing tale, we’ve been asking people what they would do differently the next time around if they could live their life all over again. What advice would you give to your younger self?

We’ve had so many fantastic responses, from the heartfelt – to the very practical – to the downright cryptic. Now it’s your turn.

If you could go back and give yourself one piece of advice from a life already lived, what would it be?

Leave your past self a message at www.harryaugust.net, and read the advice others have already given.

    Dispense with guilt. Make more love. Treat others better. Respect myself more. Work harder.
