#1 in its genre at Amazon - "Hot New Release" Backstage Pass to the Flipside


ALREADY #1 AT AUDIBLE IN ITS GENRE:




(Funny, audible recently switched the genre to "unexplained phenomena" - so it's just a hot new title rather than #1. They also had put up the wrong title - not "it's a wonderful afterlife" but "Backstage Pass to the Flipside" which is fixed below.) 

Here are links to BOOK ONE and BOOK TWO for "Backstage Pass to the Flipside: Talking to the Afterlife with Jennifer Shaffer."



 BACKSTAGE PASS TO THE FLIPSIDE: "Talking to the Afterlife with Jennifer Shaffer Part One" is now available here:




Book One explains the process of obtaining these "interviews from people on the Flipside." Jennifer Shaffer is a renowned medium/intuitive who works with law enforcement in the US to help find missing persons. Richard Martini is a best selling author who either knew the people they seek to interview, or their class moderator Luana Anders (on the flipside) helps moderate the discussions. 

Each chapter is an exploration of what is said, research is done to verify details that are heard, and observations of the process are made. The following are just a sampling of some of the people "accessed" via this process.

Mother of Exiles

My grandfather Valentino Martini rode on a ship in 1903 and came his mom and sisters to Ellis island. (His father had come 20 years earlier, his wife to be a few years later.) 

The first thing they saw was this statue; the "Mother of Exiles" as Emma Lazarus called her. I was toying with some recording equipment today, was inspired to put this together in honor of my relatives who left the beauty of Ireland and Italy to become immigrants in this country. 

Thankfully no one ripped their families apart, put them in cages or treated them like pests. The words of the poem are apt, and apply today more than ever. Apologies for sounding like other artists - didn't mean to do that, just having a bit of fun with keys and my new mic.
