Thank you for warm welcome so soon after I became a member. I hope to make contact with writers who have had success in marketing and selling their books.  Have you have been very successful ?  I see to be stuck in limbo right now, selling very few of the six books I have available.  Any suggestion ?

4.0 out of 5 stars Unique...,
This review is from: The Bridge of Deaths (Paperback)

I was honestly slightly confused as I started this book as to whether it was fiction or non-fiction. Once I realized it was both I was pleasantly intrigued. What a clever concept. The authors' grandfather did not survive a plane crash in 1939 in Denmark. He was a very young man only in his 30's. The crash occurred the night before the start of WWII. Six people were on that plane. There were two Standard Oil employees from New Jersey, A German lawyer, a member, of Parliament, an airline employee and the pilot. The pilot was the only survivor. Active imaginations like mine, or any conspiracy theorists could easily peg any one of those passengers as an espionage pawn. I am in awe of the authors twenty -year- quest to unravel the mystery surrounding her grandfathers' death. Was it an accident or was it an act of espionage? Her research left not one stone unturned on any continent or in the world of afterlife. The world of past life regression is fascinating. Bill, one of the main characters does not smoke but after being hypnotized, he becomes a smoker because he was a smoker in his past life. I found this interesting because I quit smoking three years ago but still smoke in my dreams. Her passion for this project is evident on every page and in her detailed footnotes. Personally, I love history and every detail was impeccable but at the same time, I found the footnotes a bit distracting. I would have preferred them at the end of the book or in the center for easy reference. All I will say about the ending is Bravo. This book has everything, fiction, non-fiction, mystery; romance, past lives, psychics and history. As overwhelming as that sounds and it should be, the author does a brilliant job of tying it together rather nicely. If you are looking for something different, maybe burnt out on vampires give this book a try I think you will enjoy its uniqueness.

4.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding historical fiction Aug 16 2012
By Sara
Format:Hardcover
On August 15, 1939 on the brink of World War II a plane crashes off Copenhagen, Denmark that killed five of the six individuals on board. They were on their way to an international meeting. This is an actual event that occurred. Now you are probably wondering if this is going to be a history book with no story. This is not the case at all. Yes it is a historical book that follows an actual historical even but Egan takes the facts and adds the story. In a way I felt like I was reading an autobiography with a side of historical fiction. This book does take a little time to get into, there is a lot of information to process, but I read it slowly and soon I found myself completely engrossed in the story.
Bill and Maggie meet when Maggie sees Bill on the street on her way to her local bookstore; they instantly click and begin dating. Bill reveals he has been having dreams about a past life, so the couple decide to unravel the mystery behind these dreams. This is where Catalina, a middle aged woman living in Florida comes in. After she receives an email from Maggie they being to communicate through Skype and email about the plane crash that Maggie and Bill believe occurred to them in a past life. Catalina's grandfather was killed in the plane crash and she has been researching the crash in the hopes of solving the mystery.
The story of the plane crash was enthralling. There were so many unanswered questions that were completely frustrating. It's understandable why this accident would have been swept under the rug but the amount of inconclusive and conflicting facts still frustrated me as much as I feel it did for Catalina and Maggie. The author includes pictures and documents from the actual event which made the story really come alive and made the characters relatable.
This book takes a new approach to a historical mystery and incorporates the use of physics and past life regressions. I enjoyed this book a lot and I look forward to reading more of Egan's work in the future.

The Bridge of Deaths is a cross genre. It has a huge historical, documented background, But it is as a reviewer so aptly wrote not “regurgitated History” I dug personally through archives and file and went to sources and found mistakes in history books, as well as explored an event that had never been properly documented. Another reviewer called it Casablanca with a touch of the modern.

I also used several psychics, and they through the use of psychometry told me “what they saw”…and as impossible as it sounds all their stories matched.

I also used documented past life regressions from a source who wishes to remain anonymous.

To tie it all together and make it a read and not a tedious history/paranormal lesson I created character’s , one is a creative expression of myself she is lonely and obsessed, I am married, busy with a teenage son and this was a part of my life, but not the core of my existence.

So it has been called a Historical, Paranormal, Mystery, Romance. But it is first and foremost a “thinking” book.
