Melanie may be a dead teenager but she’s also an outrageously funny bad-mouthing bitch who doesn’t care what you once thought about the life after death as she’s gonna give you the straight goods. No bullshit, no church crap, no science dogma, no goody-two-shoes-gets-you-in crap. Yeah, it’s the unvarnished truth as she sees it every hour of her deadlife – no denial, no whitewash, and no dumbing-down. Only the best, snippy sassy chic truth cutting through that men-in-suits society shit.
Be who you want. Think what you like. Do who you fancy. It’s all free. Every door is open. All you have to do is die to get there. Or read this.
Will the afterlife ever be the same? Was it ever like they said? Check it out.
Although this is a fictional account it is based on numerous out of body and lucid dream experiences of the author. The characters may be composites but they are also very real. These astral plane college towns do exist and are set up for those who have been snatched from life unexpectedly young and are designed as comfort zones for that stage of life. Full tilt fun with the education option at the ready. My other nonfiction accounts of travels ‘there’ tend to the serious and philosophic, so American In Heaven tries on the lighter side of eternal life. And guess what, it’s a good fit.
This second edition has been slightly revised by the author and designed and edited by our resident design intelligence Cynthia Phinn.
Fast moving, deliciously wicked, subtly redemptive, curiously wise and entirely possible.
– Timothy Wylie, co-author of Ask Your Angels
A deliciously irreverent account of after-death occurrences, channeled through, well, of course, a dead person.
– Joann Turner, editor, The Messenger
A multi-layered novel and a page-turner to boot.
– VS Main, author, A Woman With No Clothes On
Makes the whole paradise thing entirely plausible. I wouldn’t mind being there right now actually.
– David W. McFadden, author, Why Are You So Sad?
