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…

Chapter 1 – “Harold T Angel”

Chapter 2 – “Appropriate Decor

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.

Sound Sample Saturday– Forever Haunted, Chapter 1

 Sorry to cut Forever’s Too Long Short, but we’re skipping to Forever Haunted. 

Ghost stories take many forms. I’ve always preferred the stories where they are tragic figures, and I’ve often been interested in cold cases and the struggle to investigate them. 

So Rafael meets a lovey ghost of a flapper who is compelled to keep reliving her murder, and he’ll do what it takes to help free her. The first chapter does contain spoilers of a sort from Forever’s Too Long, so if you haven’t read it and don’t want to know how the detective is around in this one, you might want to wait until you’ve finished it.

On the other hand, if you just want to find out how attention-grabbing a first chapter can be, press play

Soon he finds himself coming face to face with a historic figure who was supposedly strangled, shot and finally drowned back in 1916. Is it really the same man? And if so, how can he still be walking the Earth? And is he involved both the cult and the art smugglers?

Rafael is about to find out, but the answer could leave him a changed man forever…

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:
