Status of Projects

Just wanted to give a basic update as to where things are. 

Forever Festive is available in audiobook form now. I know, it's after the holidays, but if you prefer listening to reading because you are stuck in traffic or working with your hands, maybe extend the spirit of the season longer-- or put it on your wishlist so you get it in time for next year's Yuletide cheer. 

W.I.T.C.H. Hunters Forever, the spin off anthology, will be out in time for summer reading. Doing some last edits and getting cover art. This one has a mere glimpse of Rafael, but Clara Thomas, Sir Lynn, Eugene Marshall,  and Medium Brown provide other familiar faces. The collection also introduces new characters, one of whom will be an important player in the next Forever Detective book. 

The next Forever Detective book is in the writing process. It's called Forever Chosen and brings back Yekaterina and Rasputin. It's likely to run a little longer than the others so far.

Sound Sample Saturday - Forever In Deep Chapter 1

 What is going on under the waters of Lake Saratoga? Why are young women drowning at an alarming rate? The coroner thinks something fishy is happening and hires Rafael to dive into it. 
Metaphorically, of course. Running water is one of his weaknesses and he would never go in... willingly.

An Early Christmas Gift...

Christmas is only a week away, and Santa told me you've all been very good so as promised, here are the 1st and 2nd chapters of "Forever Festive", the 4th book in the Forever Detective Series, which is available now for Kindle, Kobo, Apple, Nook, and Trade Paperback. 

Unfortunately, due to time and work constraints, Allan is still editing the last few chapters of the full audiobook itself, which means that version will not be available until early next month. In the meantime, we both wanted to give you these chapters as a sample of what you can expect in Rafael's first holiday adventure. Enjoy...

Sound Sample Saturday - Forever Haunted Chapters 5 and 6

Today's offerings are both very short, so it only feels right to give you a 2-fer enjoy!



With the names of not only the victim and the culprit, you'd think finding a killer would be easy. Well, a lot can happen in 20 years. Just as a lot can happen in just a few months, like running up against a vampire cult and being turned into one of the undead yourself, and keeping your friends in the dark about it. Or, if you were connected to the mob, doing a little vanishing act is another option.

Chapter 5 - They Can Make People Disappear


Chapter 6 - A Man Who Disappeared"
