Listening to the Other Side by Justin Woolley

A blog about talking to the dead 

I never intended this story to be written, let alone shared on the internet. It was my friend Wally Sharpe who eventually convinced me otherwise. Relentless as always in pursuit of an idea, he argued that not only should I set the record straight about the events of twelve years ago, but that what happened to me was of deep spiritual significance and should be shared with the world.

The purpose of this blog then is to tell the truth about what happened during the early part of 2003. I was a television psychic, a liar, habitually, professionally, destructively, but I intend for the text of this blog to be the most honest I have ever been. Everything I write will be based on my own recollections and I assure you that, however unbelievable you may find them, they are accurate.

My name is James Eriksson and I can talk to the dead.

Note: Listening to the Other Side contains some graphic sexual content, graphic violence, and harsh language.

Excellent Storytelling… and Successfully Creepy

By Scott Scherr, author of Don't Feed The Dark

Jan 20, 2016: Listening to the Other Side begins behind the scenes at a live show with psychic medium, James Erik, as he shows us from his perspective what it’s like to ‘bamboozle’ a sold-out crowd into believing that he is communing with their dead loved ones.

From the very first chapter, the author grabs and entices this reader, with an exceptional first-person narrative, and makes me feel like I was right there at the show as he educates me on how ‘hot and [more . . .]

Excellent story, does everything right

By TanaNari, author of Price

Oct 21, 2015: Note that "right" doesn’t mean "perfect", but there are no glaring flaws for me to tear into like the cruel loveless bastard I suspect people think I am from my other reviews.

I was hooked from the first chapter. I devoured it, then remembered I was supposed to be doing a review and went back to read it again critically.

It was just as pleasurable to read the second time as the [more . . .]
