When your novel isn't set in some sort of fantasy world or even the world of the supernatural (vampires, werewolves, ghosts, etc), how hard is it for the reader to accept when something paranormal happens to a skeptical character? What kind of plot holes can arise here? I have my skeptical protagonists who eventually is convinced by a more spiritual character that he is being plagued by a past life. I'm just not sure how to work it so that it doesn't sound ridiculous. Keeping in mind there are many people and religions that believe in past lives. Does anyone have any tips? When my character finds out about his past life, I just don't know how to make him react to it.
