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.

Welcome to another Sound Sample Saturday. This week’s offering is Chapter 5 from Forever’s Too Long. After last week’s tussle with Moose and company, you’d think the police would be happy to take up the case Clara is pursuing. But internal politics, pettiness, and prejudice still get in the way. 

CHAPTER FIVE – CLARA PROVED ME WRONG

NEXT WEEK – Chapter 6 “NOT JUST A SPARK”

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. 

*NEXT WEEK – Chapter 4 “MOOSE’S MEMORY”*

Starting today it’s Free (Sound) Sample Saturday over on Helen’s Blog “The Forever Detective”. What is Free (sound) Sample Saturday? Simple, it’s where she shares a chapter (or two in this case) from the Audible version of her 1st solo book “Forever’s Too Long”.  A mystery involving vampires in the noir setting of 1947 New York City. 


And since I’ve been posting for months about doing audiobook recordings, I felt it was only appropriate to share this with you since “Forever’s Too Long” is my first complete voiceover project. That’s right you’ll be hearing me narrating the story, and supplying the voices voices for the entire cast.


Furthermore, next week we will be sharing the 2nd chapter and so on in the following weeks.


Some come and take advantage to check out the Prologue and full 1st Chapter of this 5 star rated series and see what everyone is talking about, by clicking on the link below:

In 1947, former police officer Rafael Jones has just opened his own private investigation business, and he already has two cases. One has him helping Interpol locate some stolen Russian art from the time of the last czar. The other has him checking out a mysterious cult.
