"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

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!
Do I believe Annie took dictation from her deceased brother, and managed to document the events that occurred to his soul in the Afterlife? Yes - why not? History is littered with people claiming to have heard the word of God or Spirit that they have then been inspired to document. And yet, somehow, this book is different. Imagine: real time documentation of what occurs to Billy after his sudden death in his own words. Not a channelled interpretation, not a transcript from hypnotic regression, and not a theory about what might have happened to him. It doesn't matter whether you believe it or not, because in the end, it makes for fascinating reading.
We started having conversations after my father's passing about my out-of-body experiences. She wanted me to read the book along with her, so I did. The experience gave me the opportunity to discuss other topics with her, such as: (1) why I am no longer a religious person, and (2) some of my more overt non-physical experiences (including several with my father which occurred after his physical death). Mom liked the book, but still clings to her traditional religious beliefs. However, the experience helped her understand how dad might have visited her in her home (in spirit).
Overall, the book is an easy read. It is loaded with dozens of brief wisdom statements from "a non-physical perspective". If you let them, these statements can really soak in and remind the reader (once again) more of "who we really are". Billy's story is moving and dramatic, and Annie Kagan (Billy's sister) shares an honest narrative about her relationship with her brother. I found the book an easy way to introduce spirituality to a traditionally religious person. I know a lot of people who have read this book, and I have not met one who did not like the book and/or appreciate the bits of wisdom that seem to flow from its pages.
