Nashville, TN (PressExposure) September 30, 2008 -- With Halloween capping off this month, Writers in the Sky is offering a series of podcasts for those who have curiosity concerning the mysteries of the spirit world. From new age practices to reconciling years later with perpetrators of abuse to dealing with the emotional impacts of a near-death experience, the discussions this month will explore a fascinating subject area. And, as a mid-month nod to the political season, we will take a break from our spirit exploration to talk with a new author who has some strong opinions concerning the direction of our country.
On October 3, Nashville author of The Sage Age--Blending Science with Intuitive Wisdom, MaAnna Stephenson, will be the podcast guest. Stephenson is a published composer with airplay in eleven countries. Her advanced education includes attending Jackson State Community College and Lambuth University concurrently, double majoring in music and acoustics with a special apprenticeship at a local recording studio as a sound engineer. She also has a degree in electronics. Both scientists and those embracing New Age thought will enjoy this book, as well as the wisdom and wit the author shares in our interview.

The next guest, featured on October 10, will be Irene Watson as she discusses her book in which she writes about growing up in a semi-abusive home and finally accepting that experience as a path to a spiritual understanding of life. Her moving and inspiring memoir begins at the end, in a recovery center, where she has gone to understand a childhood fraught with abuse, guilt, and uncertainty. Her powerful story is a testament that it's never too late to change your life, never too late to heal. The Sitting Swing gives hope and freedom to those who accept the past and move forward by rewriting life scripts that have been passed down for generations. Irene is the Managing Editor of Reader Views, where avid readers can find reviews of recently published books and interviews with authors. For more information, please visit http://irenewatson.com/
Writers in the Sky tackles a completely different topic on October 17 during an interview with Marc Boyajian. He will be discussing his new release, The Next Falling Empire. Mr. Boyajian is a Syrian-born author who was raised in Lebanon and moved to the United States as a young adult. As someone who always held a deep love for this country, even before having the opportunity to live here, Mr. Boyajian shares his thoughts on steps that must be taken to preserve the American way of life. Mr. Boyajian provides a road map of policy changes, ranging from issues of health care and education to the Iraq War and our global economy. He discusses each subject in straightforward language with specific solutions. Whether or not you agree with his proposals, you will appreciate the ability of Mr. Boyajian's writing to spark debate. Check out this interview to learn about his prescription for America. For more information about this book, please visit http://outskirtspress.com/thenextfallingempire.
The podcasts for the final two weeks of October will focus on the intriguing topic of near-death experiences. On October 24, Yvonne Perry will discuss her book, More Than Meets the Eye. This book covers many aspects of the dying and grieving process and sheds light on near-death experience, suicide, euthanasia, and spirit visits after the passing of a loved one. The host, Carol Denbow, has experience with South Coast Hospice & Palliative Care in Coos Bay, Oregon. "Hospice care is one of the topics in my book," says Perry, "and one that I believe is a concern for many people, who have aging loved ones they need to care for in their final days."
The exciting month of interviews ends on Halloween itself with an appropriate subject. Yvonne Perry will interview Reverend Juliet Nightingale. Because of her near-death experiences and her involvement with the International Association for Near-Death Studies (IANDS), Ms. Nightingale not only pioneered her own radio program, Toward The Light, but she also has been interviewed on other radio and television programs and has appeared in numerous print media as well. She conducts seminars covering a wide range of topics. From England, her accent immediately draws people in. And, although a bit shy and reserved, Nightingale holds her audiences spellbound with her 'tell-it-like-it-is' style, then engages the audience in a colorful discussion.
"I enjoy the opportunity to provide this series of interviews on the spirit world and our continuing relationship with those who have left us. The subject matter is controversial and fascinating," says Yvonne Perry, owner of Writers in the Sky Creative Writing Services, which produces the podcast. "And, what else produces more controversy than political opinion? Tune in for our mid-month podcast when we address that issue as well!"
