For those fiction novels that don't quite belong anywhere. Shelve away!

Reese Kessler is a man plagued by both his reality and his dreams. He plods his way through a life less than desirable but feels powerless to change it.

As his dreams become more vivid, a portion of each bleeds through into reality causing him to question himself, his mental state, and his life. As he loses his grip on reality, he travels to the place where he believes everything will be revealed to him, and he will find the answers he so desperately seeks.

Stefan Emunds (stefanemunds) | 1 comments The The Priest Whisperer is an inspirational, contemporary religious novelette series with a hunch of spirituality.

We're living in hectic times and inspirational/spiritual subjects are sometimes a bit heavy to digest. That's where teh Priest Whisperer comes in. Each sequel is now just nine to ten-thousand words long and can be read in one go. We also added end notes to ease the understanding of key words and phrases.

For a limited time (until the official publishing date, which hasn't been set yet), the first part of The Priest Whisperer, The Awakening will be available for free here on Goodreads: The Awakening. You may read it online, or download a free pdf copy, and even forward it to friends who are interested in reading it - no strings attached.

The Priest Whisperer describes the life of George Mykal Ferluci, who lives his life quietly in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. But this is about to change: one sunny afternoon George experiences an awe-inspiring vision of another dimension, causing him to doubt his common perception and world view. Two days later, he stumbles into a visionary meditation where he encounters something even more bizarre than his first vision: a voice that entangles him into an odd conversation. And so begins a life-changing, spiritual journey as the voice escorts George to meet his true self face-to-face and teaches him the secrets of spiritual wisdom. Often witty and with inspiring anecdotes, the voice slowly dilutes George’s common sense and opens his mind and heart to receive the lost arcana of other worlds, mankind's true identity, and divinity.
