Editorial Reviews

Review

"Let Billy Fingers take you on a journey to the world which awaits you when you leave this earthly shell. Through Billy's sister Annie, he takes YOU on a voyage between the realm of possibilities and gives you a glimpse of how life in the spirit world is lived. The time has come to familiarize yourself with the amazing world of Spirit and Billy is your perfect guide." ─James Van Praagh, author of Talking to Heaven and Ghosts Among Us

"Greek philosophers even had a name for the people who somehow suspended between this life and the next life, "walkers between the worlds." Dr. Kagan's thought-provoking account is an excellent example." -Raymond Moody, M.D., Ph.D., bestselling author of twelve books including Life After Life--which has sold over 13 million copies world wide

"Having read The Afterlife of Billy Fingers, death feels like an adventure to look forward to. In this conversation between an introspective, artistic woman and her dead, bad-boy brother, Annie Kagan and Billy Fingers manage to collaborate on a work of transcendent wisdom, irreverent humor and sublime beauty. This exquisitely written book makes me want to live my life with as much joy as possible, and lay fear to rest." -Mirabai Starr, author of God of Love and Dark Night of the Soul

"I read The Afterlife of Billy Fingers in 90 Minutes...I could not put it down … what a great book, really one of the best in this genre." -Arielle Ford, bestselling author of Wabi Sabi Love & The Soulmate Secret

"The Afterlife of Billy Fingers is one of the best books I've read on the subject of life after death. So much of what the author describes jibes with my experiences of both being with dying people at the moment of their deaths and in two long, extended Near Death Experiences I've had myself. The book strikes chords of truth again and again and again.

The excellent writing and the story itself hold the reader's attention beautifully. Skeptics will keep reading to "find out what happens next." And whether you're a skeptic or a true believer, the book will powerfully engage you. Part of the book's premise is Annie's questioning whether her communication with Billy is real or her own craziness, and that mystery keeps us reading and seeking answers. We want to find out for ourselves what the source of this communication really is. Along the way, what Billy tells Annie is inspiring, enlightening, and insightful. The book works. It's a good read with an appealing and controversial message." --Hal Zina Bennett, author of more than 30 published books including Write from the Heart and The Lens of Perception

"The Afterlife of Billy Fingers reaffirms the NDEs experiences of the light and love I encountered on the other side. It's an engaging account of the transformation of the spirit and I highly recommend." ─Dannion Brinkley, bestselling author of Saved by the Light

 "The Afterlife of Billy Fingers by Annie Kagan is a wholly believable story that never loses its grounding in the daily life we all know. The voices of the narrator and her deceased brother never strike a false note. This is not a story that asks you to believe anything, but simply to listen with an open mind and heart. I think you will find yourself transfixed." --Rev. Susan Varon, Ordained Interfaith Minister

"I am telling everyone I know about this book. And I LOVE the clever word play puzzles he gives you, like setting down pearls in an elaborate puzzle, that allow you (and us) to confirm his journey. Thanks to both of you for this thrilling book. I barely slept so I could pick it up again." ─Richard Martini, bestselling author of FlipSide: A Tourist's Guide on How to Navigate the Afterlife

"The Afterlife of Billy Fingers is an extraordinary example of extended after-death communication. It's one of the most powerful, liberating, and healing books on life after death I've ever read. In fact, you may have a spiritual experience while reading it that will transform your beliefs about life, death, and the afterlife. I cannot recommend this luminous book highly enough." -Bill Guggenheim, bestselling co-author of Hello From Heaven!, Publisher's Marketplace

More About the Author

Annie Kagan began writing songs at the age of fifteen and began performing in New York City cafes and clubs. After ten years as a songwriter and performer, Annie became a Doctor of Chiropractic and opened a successful private practice on Manhattan's Upper East Side. Attracted to Eastern spiritual traditions, Annie studied yoga and pursued an intense meditation practice. Following her inner voice, she left her career as a doctor and abandoned her hectic city life in search of serenity in a small house by the bay on the tip of Long Island. Soon, her brother Billy died unexpectedly and began speaking to her from the afterlife. She brings together her talents as a lyricist, performer and healer in order to touch the lives of others with Billy's communications from the other side. www.anniekagan.com.

It is very interesting and convincing.

It is a story of true love between siblings and I'm grateful to Billy and Annie for sharing their story so those of us who read it can learn from it if we choose to.

Billy Fingers takes us on a jaw-dropping journey through realms I couldn't have imagined and find it hard to believe anyone could make up. This is from a born skeptic. I don't know whether to credit Annie Kagan or Billy Fingers with the spectacular rendering of experiences that must have been very hard to put into words, let alone such consistently dazzling prose. Early on, I let go of whether I believed it and just floated along on the wild and moving ride. The message I took away is that life is an adventure we're meant to have no matter what twists and turns it takes. Thanks to Billy we can now imagine the spiritual universe beyond our spec of a planet and the confines of a mortal body. It's a book I recommend highly and will return to when I find myself thinking small.

First of all, I am a medium so I have an inside track on communication with those who have passed on. Yes, I deliver messages to the grieving all the time, in all kinds of circumstances, from those who passed 2 weeks ago to those who passed 40 years ago. I read all the afterlife communication books, looking for ones that I can recommend to clients - and I strongly recommend this one. This one is the real deal, and you will do yourself a favor by reading it. Those who pass on can and do communicate with us, and you are sensitive to their messages or you are not, that is the truth. No amount of begging heaven for a message will work for you if you are not sensitive. And no one author has it all about the next life, but this one has most of it. No, I don't have any financial interest in the book, nor do I know Ms. Kagan, but I know the truth when I read it, so my advice is: If you are genuinely interested in the afterlife, read this one. If on the other hand you want to believe only one story about the next life, then don't read it, because you will not find your fixed view here. But I have found that among my clients, once they get the proofs they need, including the "secret" words, songs or phrases that they asked their loved one for before they came to see me, then they wake up from the delusions of "religion" and learn to think for themselves. AMEN TO THAT!!!!

My spiritual journey has taken me to many houses of worship, to countless bookstores, to thousands of hours of reading, to purchases at new age shops, to expensive sessions with mediums, to meditation and of course to the worldwide web. I have struggled through Jane Roberts' 'Seth' books, studied 'A Course in Miracles' aligned my chakras and tried to be a sponge and soak up all I could learn.

Yesterday my friend Susan, posted on Facebook about the release of this book 'The Afterlife of Billy Fingers'. I immediately purchased and downloaded it on my Kindle. I followed Billy's journey, thanks to Annie and Billy. I cried and I laughed and I learned a lot, through their journey. This morning when the book ended, I needed MORE! I want to thank the powers that be for the permission they must have given to help Billy be able to tell his story, and also for Annie to be able to hear it.

I wish I had read this book years ago or something like it. The beauty and simplicity and wonder touched my soul unlike all the other books I have ever read before. Trust me when I tell you, I have been reading 2 to 3 books a week since 5th grade and I will be 59 years old this coming Friday.I guess you can say I know what I like when it comes to books. This one was a life changer. If your search brought you here, it was for a very good reason. READ THIS BOOK!

Format: Paperback
Author Annie Kagan and her "bad-boy brother" had been somewhat estranged their entire life, largely due to his lifelong addictions and sometimes shady lifestyle. A call from the police department announcing her brother's death may have been unexpected, but his death was not so surprising given that his was a life lived life on the edge. But when Billy suddenly began to communicate with his sister from the after-life, Annie was surprised, disbelieving, and reluctant to share this news with others.

Through a series of cryptic messages from Billy that materialize in Annie's life (and others), along with the support of a writing group, Billy convinces Annie that she must write this book. The result is this fascinating preview of what happens when we die, one that is both quirky and uplifting. In the genre of after-life communications this book stands out for many reasons. But in particular, the detailed descriptions Billy offers of his after-life experiences are `refreshing,' in that they transcend the culturally filtered images we have become somewhat accustomed to, and reveal glorious galaxies of universal awareness and experience. For example:

"After our last visit, I was drifting through the Universe, taking in the sights, when a cosmic wind began to circle me like a slow tornado...Then it was like someone pressed the start button on a cosmic projector and the ring became a circular movie that's still playing all around me. What I'm looking at is very different from any film I've seen in a theater, though. First of all, I'm suspended in the middle of the Universe, and second the entire move is playing all at once and the images are holographic...What's really great is that this hologram has a very special feature...My hologram is expandable.
