These works are impressive and it’s going to be an interesting sprint to the finish! Here’s a recap of the finalists:
When Greg Benson took a job as a morgue technician, he was told on his first day, “You can’t make this stuff up.” What an understatement that turned out to be…From his first autopsy (a teenage girl), deaths by accident and homicide, dumpster removals, subway electrocutions, and ghostly activity, this job was anything but normal. Just when Greg thought he had seen it all, something else would take place-and it wasn’t only the cases being brought in… Take a rare peek into the life of a morgue technician in this fascinating foray into Life in the Morgue.

Death is never final—and you are never alone …From a young age, Gina knew she was different. She could never safely share her reality with her family—the reality that she could see and communicate with Spirit. But as she matured, she realized her life’s calling as a Spirit Medium was to help people connect with deceased loved ones. With warm, witty honesty, Gina shares landmark moments in her own life—from embracing the gift that was so misunderstood in her early life, to the devastating death of her 27-year-old son. Whispers of Love will introduce you to the messages, signs, and specific ways that Spirit and loved ones share their language of love. Are you struggling with storms in your life that you can’t overcome or has the weight of unbearable grief brought your life to a halt? With understanding messages from Spirit and your loved ones always around, finally hope can arise from heartbreak. Truly inspired, Whispers of Love compassionately introduces you to a deep exploration of why we are here, how to connect with Spirit, and how we can find meaning in life’s hardest challenges. Gina teaches us the impressive lesson that remaining frozen in pain is not the path to freedom. We must embrace our lives with Spirit on board so that every step can unfold in Divine order, with less drama and perhaps even a new found perspective on grief.
About Author Gina Simone
Gina Simone is a Spirit Medium certified through the Forever Family Foundation. At the age of 11, she began to notice and feel Spirit and energy around her. Not knowing what these gifts were, she always felt different and isolated. A traumatic pool accident with her toddler son catapulted her into finding the meaning behind life, Spirit, lessons, and karma. She left a comfortable corporate finance career to answer her calling to connect you with your loved ones and with your own innate intuition and higher consciousness. She has been a featured medium on Gwyneth Paltrow’s GOOP.com, has been voted Long Island Best Medium several years in a row, and is also a featured medium on WBLI 106.1 morning show.
