I was one of the lucky few to read Allison's story line before editing. It is a classic story of good versus evil. Young people on a mission to save the world. I can honestly say I loved it and it changed my outlook on life and my way of seeing our mission here on earth. I recommend it to anyone who wants a good read but also to anyone searching for answers. Perception changed my own perception of life here on this lovely planet.
FABULOUS READ, I'M ENJOYING
It was FANTASTIC! Can't wait for the next one!
Finished Book 1 Perception, The Two Yet One ...WOW! Allison Hopkins what an incredible read and I cannot wait to read Book 2 and 3. Incredible depth in your characters and I can see this turning into a movie! I loved how you brought in Spirit and the light and dark forces. I can feel your characters with me, which is exactly the makings of a great author!
Every book is a product of a writer's heart and spirit, as much as it is of her brain. In the case of Allison Hopkins' work, this is especially the case. She is not only this book's author but this story's conduit, so readers will find it important to know how thoughtful, careful, and loving she has been with each word over the years she's worked on this. As Allison's editor, I'm of course going to say nice things about the final draft of this book - it would be surprising if I didn't. So, instead, my blurb has the goal of expressing what a dedicated, worthy author Allison is. There is no separating the artist from the art, not in this case, at least. You can trust in this story - it is one that has been crafted from a listening soul.
Book 1 was an interesting read. Well written and narrated with a clear voice. The characters are incredibly relatable and naturally have you pulling for them from the beginning. I am excited to see where Sunny and Luna end up. Anxiously awaiting Book 2.
At the onset of my Path, I received a reading by a talented psychic who told me a great deal about my future, including that I would go back to school at a late age and that my schoolmate, David, would reappear in my life. She also told me that after he and I joined lives, I would write a series of books. That floored me because I couldn’t believe that I would have that much to say!
David found me after searching for twenty-three years. We fell in love and moved in together within a couple months. Around the same time, I had the opportunity to attend college and achieved an associate of arts degree in paralegal studies in 2012 at age forty. While seeking employment in my new field, I found that I was left with a lot of time on my hands.I had always had a knack for writing but, daunted by the thought of writing the predicted series, I decided to begin by writing out my life. That’s when it really hit me just how paranormal my life has been.
David’s life had been the same way. My new education helped me to brush up my writing skills and afforded me the new skill of researching. I really began to dig, researching paranormal phenomena, and the storyline for the Perception series began to unfold. That’s when I realized that my two main protagonists would be based on David and me.
The first manuscript had several major issues that needed to be fixed but, determined to share the awesome story with the world, I wrote the manuscript over the next four years, diligently moving forward with the assistance of David, my family, and my very patient and talented creative consultant, editor, and angel, Kristin Thiel.
David and I were finally married in 2016, and the first book in the Perception series is finally ready to be shared with the rest of the world. There are no coincidences.
Please note that I am the narrator of this story and, although the ever-complex workings of the Universe, Multiverse, and beyond are still very much a mystery to me, I have done my best to relate the whisperings and scenes that my mind has picked up on—the other-worldly reality that the Perception series is.
As far as I can tell, this is how it goes…
UPCOMING EVENTS- coming soon
I grew up in California as a happy Catholic girl whose heart was devoted to the One Spirit known by many, including myself at the time, as God. At around nine years old, I promised God that I would be his vessel; to devote my life to his work, no matter what that may be, and at twenty-three, I consciously began walking my Path to Enlightenment.
Over the span of my life, I have experienced several strange and powerful paranormal events, as well as a significant trauma, which ignited and left to burn in my mind deep questions about the reality of life. I was lucky enough to have been given forward-thinking parents who encouraged me to be myself–an artistic and free spirit, with a loving heart and a contemplative, questioning, ever-thinking mind. Everything about life on our planet continues to fascinate me.
