Vol I, This Changes Everything

(Blurb): Dr. Clara Ackerman Branon, Ph.D., 58, is having the first of many home visits from holographic representations of five beings from the Many Worlds Collective (MWC), a consortium of planet and star systems all around the multiverse, over a thirty-year, increasingly Utopian period. Earth is being invited to join, formally, and the December, 2012, visit is the first one allowed to be made public. Making the existence of the MWC public means many Earthers have to adjust our beliefs and ideas about life, religion, culture, identity and, well, everything we think and are. Clara becomes the liaison for Earth, the Chief Communicator, between Earth and the MWC. This Changes Everything relates the events partly from her point of view, partly from records of meetings of varying groups of the MWC governing bodies, and partly from her Media Contact, Esperanza Enlaces, employing humor, poignancy, a love story, family issues, MWC’s mistakes and blunders, history, politics, paranormalcy and hope.

Vol II, This Changes My Family and My Life Forever (release date 6/9/14)


(Blurb): This Changes My Family and My Life Forever is the story of the first five years After Public Contact with the Many Worlds Collective (2013-2018), "The Transition" to full membership for Earth. Many of the changes, reactions, struggles and circumstances accompanying these years are related from the points of view of the main character, Dr. Clara Branon's, adult son and his cousins as well as some of those cousins' children. One of Clara's nephews in particular, Moran Ackerman, who becomes Chief of the Psi-Warriors and all OverSeers, tells of his experiences and training in assuming those roles for Earth after having been a Rabbi and teacher of middle school. TCMF&MLF's content is edited/curated and also partly narrated by Esperanza Enlaces, Clara's Chief Media Contact, a contemporary of her son's, so some of her story and many parts of Clara's are included as well.


Pre-order period for Vol. II, 4/18 - 6/8/14, offers the special discounted price of $1.99 for Volume II on all sites. Starting 6/9/14, Volume II will sell for $3.99. Releases June 9 on Amazon and all Smashwords affiliate sites

    Thanks for the Spotlight! Great website!
    I didn't know this was made LIVE a few weeks ago. Appreciate the shout-out.
    Please fix one thing: my name is "Sally" not "Salley" and you have it right in most places, but not all.
    Best to you!
    Sally
