The arrival of Beyond Faith, the third book in the Beyond mystery series is getting closer.
Dana Bowman here. And Sharon A. Crawford, the real author, always here.We have an update. Beyond Faith’s appearance is coming closer.
Dana: Sharon has negotiated for Beyond Faith and Beyond Blood to get into the Dealers’ Room for Bouchercon 2017. New business cards are in the works.
Sharon: And sorry, Dana, you aren’t on them – like my editor would say – no space.
Dana: That’s okay…at least for now for this serial story which could be called Beyond Reason features me . Part 6 follows.
Dana: Fielding, what do you mean some of the characters here don’t exist. David certainly does and so does Ms. Dugan.
Fielding: Look on the floor and tell me what you see.
Dana (looking down): The floor.
Fielding: But what is there on the floor?
Dana: Nothing. Hey, who stole the hooded guy? Oh wait. Sharon made him disappear.
Fielding: Sharon? I don’t see any Sharon. . .
Dana: Sharon A. Crawford, the author of the Beyond books.
Voice of Sharon: Ah, hah. You are finally admitting it.
Dana: Yes. No. What the hell?
Dana, turning around and looking at Ms. Dugan and David sitting on the office couch: Well, you two are still here. So you must have seen Sharon make it disappear and then disappear herself?
David: Mommy, Mommy what do you mean? Sharon. She just disappeared. Maybe she took the dead guy?
Ms. Dugan: What dead guy? There is just us here.
Dana, looking around: Where’s Bast? He was just here too.
Ms. Dugan: Never saw him. Just you, David and me, and of course, Sharon.
Dana, scratching her head: What the heck. And I suppose you didn’t see Detective Sergeant Donald Fielding either?
Ms. Dugan: Who?
Dana: The detective who was investigating your brother.
Ms. Dugan: I don’t have a brother.
Dana: Yes, you do. He was banging on the door here and he was caught coming out of a hardware store carrying a screwdriver which he is alleged to have used in some break and enters. And he was living with you for now.
Ms. Dugan: I live alone.
Dana: Well, if all this is true, then tell me what the hell you are doing here and what have you done with my brother? I… oh my head hurts.
Dana falls to the floor.
