About

WHO IS THE AUTHOR? 

Dear Pet Lovers Everywhere:

My name is Nancy Alanis and I am the author of the book: When My Paws Depart My Spirit Will Heal Your Heart.

To pen the pages for this book, I was required to seriously reflect on my colorful and multifaceted career path that provided the important foundation to convey the messages and photos I share in this book.

With a bachelor’s degree in Accounting, I was able to maintain objectivity and collect and audit paranormal photographic evidence. Working with a brilliant lawyer as a paralegal helped me research material to accurately convey my thoughts. And running a commercial haunted house inside a true paranormal building would be important to understanding peaceful spirit activity from dearly departed loved ones. 

Of course, my most gratifying job includes caring for God's animal creation and in particular, being an avid dog lover similar to my mother and my grandfather. Like many people, I have rescued, loved and mourned the loss of special pets. 

While working as an accountant and paralegal, I spent close to fifteen years running a successful commercial haunted house attraction inside an old two story brick building located in San Antonio, Texas. While this building looks like a magnificent mansion, it is now a couple of years shy of 100 years old and embodies so much old architectural charm. 

During many Halloween seasons, my dearly departed sweet Siberian husky “Jene” was excited to sit outside and greet visitors with her gentle paw-shakes.  Through this haunted house attraction,  I raised over $100,000 to help support local school programs and various charities including the Boys & Girls Club.  Little did I know that this building was a true paranormal landmark that would one day, deliver amazing “photographic evidence” of peaceful spirit activity.  It would also provide the magical material for a future book.

Among the hundreds of paranormal photos I have taken inside this old mansion, the first and truly amazing paranormal photo I took was on May 17, 2011, the day my sweet Siberian husky “Jene” passed away.  While Jene was very weak and resting on her sofa, I took a photo of Jene and noticed a white "ORB" appearing above Jene.  (See Photo No.1).   

On May 18, 2011, the day after Jene passed away, I knelt down in front of Jene's sofa filled with heartache and abundant tears.  Between gasps for air, I pleaded with God to show me a "special sign" that Jene was with him. God responded to my request in a most unusual and magnificent way when delivering that special sign through an amazing photo containing a brilliant white and color splashed free falling ORB above Jene's sofa.   (See Photo No.2). 

The beautiful free falling ORB showed me there was not only a loving God who indeed hears and answers prayers, but this special photo provided important evidence of the eternal unconditional love communicated from my dearly departed sweet Siberian husky “Jene”.  Through this photo, I suddenly understood with clarity, that Jene was not gone and continued to provide signs of her unconditional love to me in “spirit”.  (Read the full story and view more photos beginning on pg. 24 of my book).

PHOTO No. 1

 PHOTO No. 2

After this beautiful experience,  naturally my curiosity peaked and my photo journalism journey began. While I spent many days, weeks, months and endless hours taking paranormal photos, I would eventually collect and closely review the paranormal details in hundreds of photos taken at my business and other locations. I also shared my stories and photo evidence with the local media and the public.

WHAT IS THIS BOOK ABOUT?  

This beautiful book is magical.  It will inspire people to reflect deeply on their core beliefs and will strengthen their faith when reviewing God’s loving blue print for mankind.

In May 2011, I lost my sweet Siberian husky “Jene” after many years of enjoying her hugs, kisses and unconditional love, particularly with her plastic ducks she doted on. Then in May 2017, I lost my adorable Beagle “Snoopy” after enjoying his years of digging, exploring and delivering more unconditional love.

After their passing, both Jene and Snoopy appeared to me in multiple photos and/or video. (Read stories and view photos in Chapters 4-8 of my book). While this special experience not only healed a painful void in my life, today I cherish these remarkable photos and consider them to be a gift from a very loving God reaching out to comfort me.

Upon reflection, I also discovered a greater purpose.  In 2017,  I embarked on a new journey and wrote the healing book When My Paws Depart My Spirit Will Heal Your Heart.  This book is designed to among other things, provide stories and photographic evidence of our pets “life after life” adventure that continues to provide unconditional love in "spirit".  This book will also heal the hearts of pet lovers who have loved and lost pets so they are reassured our pets are special souls that really do go to heaven.


THIS BOOK DELIVERS THE EVIDENCE  

This book is unlike any other book that has been written because I have collected hundreds of paranormal photos and provide authentic “photographic evidence” in my book to support my conclusion about our pets ability to remain connected to us long after they are gone.   And also, to show that our pets are God's special souls that indeed have a place in heaven.

This book contains true stories and photographic evidence chronicling my own "spirit" pet journey with my sweet Siberian husky "Jene" and adorable Beagle "Snoopy". The photographic evidence in this book is so magical and shows how our dearly departed pets are able to appear in photos and use other methods to communicate their unconditional love.  

While this book contains heart warming stories to help pet lovers experience a special healing when mourning the loss of their pet, the photographic evidence is certain to help strengthen the faith of pet owners. Like me, pet owners will believe that when our pets pass away, they are so thankful for our years of care giving that they remain connected and continue to deliver their unconditional love and protection to us in “spirit”.

PURCHASE THIS LIMITED FIRST EDITION BOOK ...FOR FAMILY AND FRIENDS




This book will inspire you as it did me. Writing When My Paws Depart My Spirit Will Heal Your Heart has been a labor of love and could not have been completed without a great team effort which included a very kind, talented and patient graphic designer, proof readers and also, the very compassionate veterinarian Dr. Dan Kirby who wrote the Forward for the book. 

My book delivers special messages to all pet owners and serves as a reminder that if our pets could verbally communicate with us, they would want us to know that When My Paws Depart My Spirit Will Heal Your Heart.

Review this heartfelt video.  If this book sounds interesting to you and/or you know a "Pet Lover" who has loved and lost a pet, please support my campaign and pre-order book(s) to share with your friends and family. Remember to share my book with your friends through blogs and on FACEBOOK.

FUNDING AND FUTURE GOALS

To ensure the delivery of the Rewards, quotes have been obtained from multiple competitive sources for every phase of this book promotion campaign from printing to shipping. These quotes provide a reasonable basis to determine the floor and ceiling of our funding request. Naturally, graphic designing personalized pet cards and the cost to print the book are the largest combined expense followed by advertising.

The Rewards include risk mitigation factors to account for other variables and unforeseen costs, including Kickstarter and other fees.

Currently, the risks and challenges to meeting the goals for selling and promoting my book are nominal. I have obtained from the US Copyright Office an approved copyright for my book and the written and photographic material for my book has already been compiled and completed.

Among other things, my rewards include the costs to print, mail and meet Kickstarter fees. While I would be thrilled to sell 5,000 books in 2018, to avoid financial shortfalls, I am going to begin with a more realistic goal of selling 1200 books. As demand grows and financial support increases, I will print more books to sell.
