I had not expected what was to come. I researched what I should envision as a first book by an Indie Author. The numbers ranged between 100 copies and typically 250 copies sold to friends and family — most claimed that is what I should expect in the first month!
My first published book, Piercing the Veils of Death:A Paranormal Exploration, now available in paperback and on Kindle eBook format on Amazon.com, has sailed past all sales predictions in its opening weekend. Is this attributed to the hard work and dedication of an authors relentless pursuit of success or is the reception a fluke? Perhaps the answer could be found in the reception and response of my peers.

Piercing the Veils of Death: A Paranormal Exploration, is much more than I had ever imagined. It delves into the supernatural, the superstitious and the religious implications and quandaries, which we have struggled with for centuries. How do Native American Indians relate to the Spirit world? Do pets go to heaven? What is the difference between an “angry sprit” and a demon? These and many more questions are answered.
There are three parts to Piercing the Veils of Death. The first is the Apologue, in this chapter follow Stephen Allendale as he takes us through a journey into the hereafter. Only his love for his life-long friend and wife Tracy can help Stephen accept the truth — his death.
The second portion are several true accounts of apparitional visits and psychic interventions as related by a Native American Indian, a clairvoyant, and research by the author in such historical places as Salem, MA. Lexington, MA. and New Orleans, LA. Do you know the difference between The City of the Dead in Cairo, Egypt and The City of the Dead in New Orleans, LA? The interesting answers are in Piercing the Veils of Death.
