5 - Stars

Good plot with smart characters. Nice to have a story that isn't based on the inattention or inability of the protagonists.

Please continue releasing the series!

What a Year...

 I haven't blogged much in a while. Sorry about that. This year has just been so rough. 

I'm writing my novels-- Forever Festive is up past 41,000 words, but there's still a lot to do. I might not have it out in time for Christmas, and it is very much a holiday book. If it isn't ready, what I will do is spend some time working on some short stories about the W.I.T.C.H. Hunters group and Rafael Jones for an anthology... and I hope to have one to post on my blog as a present to you and a teaser of things to come. 

I've had bronchitis, a warning of layoffs in my job category at work, smoke layering over my city. There's just a lot of anxiety and fatigue that makes major creativity hard. I keep sane partly through little acts of creativity like this Halloween tree. But as long as I'm alive, there will be more tales of Rafael Jones and his friends.

Close one door; open another



So, the rules with Audible say that if we have an audiobook with them, we can't have it available elsewhere. No one has nibbled on buying it direct from us through our store.

I do know there are people who just use Audible, because they want to get their subscription's worth. And there are book clubs who only choose books where their members can get it in audiobook form. It seems better to put it on a site where it will be easily found and used. So the book is now available through Audible and Amazon. So now "Forever's Too Long" is available exclusively through Audible and Amazon.

In the meantime I'm removing the downloadable audiobook option (which I was supplying personally) of "Forever's Too Long" from my online store. I'm going to put the links for both Audible and Amazon there instead, so you can get your own audiobook through either of those sites. 

I will be adding and I-Tunes Link as well once it is available there. 

Here's the link to my online store:

The Future of the Forever Detective Series

With 3 books done, you may wonder if I have plans for further novels in the series. Yes, I do.

Right now I have 12 more novel concepts planned already just for Rafael Jones. And while I have them in mind to be in the 40s-50s, I'm interested in doing more contemporary stories with him. I'd like to give him a Goth sidekick in the 80s, because of course that would happen. :)

One thing I want to know is: as a reader, do you want the books to be in chronological order? Or are you okay with the series jumping around a bit in time if the story warrants it? (And thanks to weird genius Eugene, time travel may even be part of some plots.)

Also: would you love a spin-off? While getting the stories direct from Rafael has its appeal, you know that Clara, Medium Brown, Sir Lynn Fox, and other members of W.I.T.C.H. Hunters have stories of their own. I want to get to work on those soon, starting with an anthology. Are you intrigued?

"Forever In Deep" Just Got Its 1st Review


Marian Diane
5.0 out of 5 stars
Loved this 3rd in a series
Reviewed in the United States on May 29, 2020
 
"Helen has done it again. Her characters are engaging and somewhat quirky. The story line had me guessing until the end. :Loved the supernatural aspects. While this is 3rd in a series it also stands alone. The story is complete on it's one but the interaction and history of the characters is enhanced if you read the other books."
 
Interested in checking it out or reading a sample for yourself? Just click on one of the links below and start reading. You'll also find links to books 1 and 2 for this 5-Star series as well.

****RELEASE DAY - "Forever In Deep****



Book 3 of the Forever Detective Series
is now available


Rafael Jones is always a little out of his depth in rural settings, but he's not just a detective, he's also undead. He can't ignore the call from the Saratoga County coroner when she mentions the bite marks found on several drowning victims during the spring and summer of 1947.


However, he knows his weaknesses (sunlight, running water, and a woeful lack of country manners), so he isn't working alone. His slowly developing powers and quick wits may not be a match for something old, strong in magic, and completely cursed.


Available now in all e-book formats for $3.99 at:







*Also available in Trade Paperback for $12.99 at Amazon OR "Signed" copies available by contacting/e-mailing the author at: helenkrummenacker@gmail.com
