Halfway There!

Now that the first two installments of the Alexa Silven novels are on Audible.com, I am recording the final novel in that trilogy. Bulletproof Wedding: An Alexa Silven Finale is more than half-way completed. I’m thinking about continuing the series with a Young Adult version of how her kids become super sleuths… thinking about it, that is. Better think about it some more! Stay tuned!

Back in the Groove!

We spent three weeks in New Jersey with Dan and Emille, helping replace their laminate flooring. Hey! Now we’ve got a few new job set skills. It was great being with them and to tell the truth, I enjoyed the time off from recording the books. So far, the first and second books in the Alexa Silven Trilogy are now available on Audible.com. This week I want to complete recording of the final book of the trilogy, Bulletproof Wedding: An Alexa Silven Finale. Then I plan to start the Young Adult comedy novellas about the quadruplets who turn a high school athletics program upside down and established relationships inside out.  You don’t want to miss Too Many Choices I & II, coming soon to Audible.com!

The Consuming Fire sequel is live!!!

Got contacted that Murder by Design: Alexa Silven Returns is live and available on Audible.com! I am especially thrilled because I think this middle book of the Alexa Silven trilogy readily shows my development as a writer. It was fun to read it again as I recorded it. Hope you’ll try it and like it. If you do, don’t forget to post a review for me.  And if you get the chance, contact me at cbhoffmann.com and give me some personal feedback. I’m pretty certain you’re going to like this book!

Silence Your Cell Phones, Please!

I realized this bedroom that is isolated from the rest of the house by a pocket door is nearly sound proof. In fact, it is now doing double duty – the back bedroom has become my recording studio.  My partner and son, Dan, had 10×12″ prints of our book covers made into wall plaques so we could decorate the walls and personalize it – give it that homey studio look and feel.  Interesting how that works! The minute I enter that room I’m all business. And recording the Alexa Silven trilogy is an exciting new direction for me. This all works… and works well! Dan also had a sign made that lights up and says recording. Think maybe he’s sending me the message that this is serious business? Well, I’m getting it! Can’t wait to post the pictures. Stay tuned!

Positive Impact

I finally finished your book today! Wow the ending was so unexpected for me. I am still in shock about Alexa! The book was fabulous.   I would love to read the second book! Your book really sparked my interest in reading again. Krista This was sent to me by a reader in Orlando. She’s most encouraging and makes me want to keep writing for those who appreciate the murder mysteries, especially the Alexa Silven trilogy.  But if you prefer high school drama/comedy, try Too Many Choices 1 & 2.  And please, keep the comments coming in!

Getting There!

OK!! Just finished recording the first 1/3 of the middle book of the Alexa Silven trilogy, Murder by Design: Alexa Silven Returns. I think it’s great now that I’ve learned how to record in my studio and how to edit, too. I’ve got to look into doing voice-overs! This is actually teaching me some patience…. got to go! In a hurry!! (LOL)

Brilliant Creative!

Dan has created some of the most engaging, artful ads for our website, cbhoffmann.com, that I’ve ever seen! Check them out on youtube (especially the one that’s on fire!) and on our interactive website (which he also created). Just had to brag! He’s really good, you know? You’ve got to see this!! Here’s the link! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2-jbFWKYUws

Murder by Design Underway!

Now that the first novel of the trilogy, Consuming Fire: An Alexa Silven Novel, is available on Audible.com, I am actively recording the second book, Murder by Design: Alexa Silven Returns.  What’s interesting is that I get caught up in the storyline and characters all over again, as a reader rather than the writer. Strange but fun experience!

Finding a direction

If you’re trying to decide whether or not to attend college or tech school, or which major or career interests you, consider taking one of the many personality or career inventories that are online. This would help you see your strengths and personal preferences.  An Academic Advisor could help analyze your results and connect you to a proper course of study or if you would benefit more from a certification program. But these inventories are not hard to analyze and do offer a sense of direction.
