Forever Detective

Welcome back to Sound Sample Saturday

“Don’t you just hate it when a plan comes together?” That’s the thought going through the mind of our hero Rafael Jones.

Last time we left him he’d landed up in the ‘frying pan’, when he’d tried to infiltrate the cult that was recruiting Eugene’s employees. The sickly, strange cultists had managed to capture him. Now Rafael’s about to come face-to-face with their spiritual leader, a man long believed dead, and is about to realize he’s gone from said frying pan and into the fire!

Chapter 8 – SURE TO GIVE OFFENSE

Alas, as the title of this entry (and its predecessors) have hinted, the ‘free samples’ of “Forever’s Too Long” is now at an end. The story however, still has a ways to go. Will Rafael survive? Can he save himself not only physically but spiritually? And can he keep his friend Eugene out…

The 4th book in Helen’s “Forever Detective Series”

There’s no place like home for the holidays– or for having you darkest secrets revealed!

Can Rafael Jones manage to find the missing girl, build on his romance with agent Clara Thomas, and still keep his parents thinking he’s living a normal life instead of being living dead? And will working for the forces of Heaven strengthen Rafael’s faith, or shake it?

Wizards, witches, angels, and Pixie Dust bring their own surprises for Rafael’s Christmas.

So get ready to order your copy, and maybe a few to put in stocking or under a tree. 

(Personally signed paperbacks will also be available)


Forever Detective

Welcome back to Sound Sample Saturday

It seemed like a simple job. Go in, get some evidence of wrongdoing– there’s always wrongdoing by cultleaders– and present it to Eugene’s former employees to get them to get their lives back on track.

But Rafael had no ideahowwrong things were done behind the facade of the visiting room. Or what a familiar beauty he would find there.

For some time Helen and I have been considering adding some new things to this blog. After I did the series of how to record audiobooks, I still got a number of requests for more details about creating Chain Commands, where do I find such-and-such function on my ACX, etc. And I realized that perhaps some more detailed visuals such as videos where I’m actually recording an audiobook, then sharing my computer screen so people could see exactly how I remove unwanted sounds, mistakes, and even adjust the recording to meet ACX approval requirements would prove more helpful.

At the same time, Helen started asking about doing some videos with us interviewing each other (as authors, and in my case a voiceover artist), as well as having other people guest on podcast-like videos for a question and answer session. She also brought up the topic of not just bringing authors on, but bloggers, artists and creative folks who would like to share their work and thought processes along with some demonstrations.

I thought this all made sense. After all the name of the blog is the Musings of 2 Creative Minds, talking and sharing with other creative minds seems like a good fit. So we’re asking all of you, our readers and followers, to please share your thoughts with us in the comments section below. If the overall response is a resounding “Yes”, we’ll see about getting things set up to begin in January. (I originally thought about sooner, but the holiday season is fast approaching and we have a lot planned out already, and so do most folks so beginning the new year off with a bang seems more appropriate).

We’re looking forward to hearing what you all have to say. So until next time take care, stay, safe and keep writing and recording everyone!


Forever Detective

Today we bring you the 3rd chapter in Rafael and Clara’s ongoing adventure, which takes us to the streets of New York where we’ll meet some of the friends Rafael has made during his days as a beat cop. I hope you enjoy this little stroll through 1940’s New York City.

CHAPTER THREE – THE ELLIS ISLAND TRAFFIC CONTROL BOARD

Sorry for the shortness of today’s offering but I’m certain you’ll enjoy next week’s longer offering where we get to meet yet another face from Rafael’s past. Mind you, this one won’t be quite so friendly.
