Spanners - volume 3 cover final

Clara, Moran, Espe, Epifanio and the alien Band of holos are back in This Is /Is Not The Way I Want Things to Change of The Spanners Series. Psi-Defiers launch increasingly violent protests during this five-year Transition, attempting to block Earth’s membership into the Many Worlds Collective. To join, Earth’s nations and borders must dissolve and Psi-Warriors must strengthen in their battle against the rebels.

Clara, continuing as Earth’s first Chief Communicator, also juggles family conflicts and danger while creating psi skills training centers to help Earth through the Psi Wars. Clara timults alternate versions of their futures as the leaders’ duties and consciences force them each to make difficult choices across multiple timelines while continuing to train and fight.

Are the Psi-Warriors’ and other leaders’ increasing psi skills, interspecies collaborations and budding alien alliances enough for Earth to make it through The Transition intact? If there is no clear path for Clara’s and Epifanio’s love, does she partner with Steve or go it alone? Stories from older Spanners about the first five years of The Transition fill Volume III.

What do you do with wanted/unwanted changes?

BLURB for Volume I, This Changes Everything
Dr. Clara Ackerman Branon, 58, begins having secret visits from holographic representations of beings from the Many Worlds Collective, a consortium of planet and star systems in the multiverse. When Earth is invited to join the Collective, the holos choose Clara as liaison between Earth and the Many Worlds Collective to make the secret visits public and guide Earth’s new leaders.

While Earthers adjust their beliefs and ideas about life, religion, culture, identity and everything they think and are, rebellions and conflicts arise. The Collective works with Clara and her reluctant hero nephew, Rabbi Moran Ackerman, to create the Psi-Warriors who fight the leaders of the resistance, the Psi-Defiers.

With multiple re-sets needed to revise the past and future to save lives, in which of the timelines in the multiverse does her love, Epifanio Dang, get to be with Clara? Over Clara’s thirty-year term as Chief Communicator, Earthers must undergo challenging transformations.

Volume I Book Trailer

BLURB for Volume II, This Changes My Family and My Life Forever
Intrigued by multiple timelines, aliens, psi skills, romance and planetary change? Clara and the alien “Band” are back in Volume II, This Changes My Family and My Life Forever, of The Spanners Series. The Many Worlds Collective makes its presence officially known in 2012 to Dr. Clara Ackerman Branon, their chosen first liaison, in Volume I, This Changes Everything.

Now as Chief Communicator, Clara leads the way for interspecies communication on- and off-planet via the fish, which brings an end to Earth’s disparate governments and nations. Fighting these changes are the Psi-Defiers, led by one of the oldest friends of the Chief of the Psi-Warriors, its reluctant leader, Rabbi Moran Ackerman, one of Clara’s nephews. At the newly created psi Excellent Skills Program school on The Campus, an ever-expanding, multi-species community and training camp, Clara, Moran, Esperanza Enlaces (Espe, the Chief Media Contact), and Clara’s on-again, off-again lover/friend, Epifanio Dang make their homes.

“Snapshots” of Clara’s life from age 9 through the Transition show how she develops to be Earth’s first Chief Communicator. Stories from younger Spanners about the first five years of The Transition fill Volume II.

How would you do with the changes?
