Welcome to a very special date in Two Dudes, Brews & Books history. When my business partner Jeremy and I talked about goals for our company this year, we talked about getting our brand name out there in multiple ways. One of the things we discussed was a podcast between the two of us.

And so it begins, because today we will record our first podcast. We are both very excited and hope that you the reader will join us. A lot of podcasts take a lot of your time during the day. Ours will not. We plan on making it short and sweet. Hopefully you will enjoy it and pass the word on. I will give you an update when you can hear it.

And if you haven’t all ready, check out the new home of Two Dudes, Brews and Books website! http://ucfgk04.wix.com/twodudesbrewsbooks

As far as Paranormal Contact, I’m making good progress. I’m on page 59 of the story. I have said it before and I will say it again. It’s a lot darker than the first book and quite honestly better written, I think. I have learned a lot since writing “Everything Comes Full Circle”. I hope it will show!

New Banner & New Website

A lot has been happening over at my company Two Dudes, Brews and Books. We have an awesome new website that you should check out to find out more about myself and my business partner Jeremy Croston. Check it out at http://ucfgk04.wix.com/twodudesbrewsbooks

If that wasn’t enough, we have updated our banner as well. I think it looks pretty awesome. I hope you like it too.

Banner Let us know what you think!

I did some writing this past weekend and I think you will like the direction that I am heading the story. We are getting into the action of the story. There’s some trouble a-brewing for a few of the characters. I’m up to page 55 right now. I think you will like it! At least I hope so!

I am a Paranormal Investigator

Remember the final scene of Iron Man where Tony Stark had a press conference. And his final words were “I am Iron Man”. Well if I had a presser (as they say in the business) I would declare myself not as a super hero, but as a paranormal investigator.

It’s something that has always interested me, ever since I was a young boy. I hope that people will be able to read my passion about the paranormal through this book. In fact, the anecdotes that the characters tell are based partially on events that have occurred in my life.

As a young boy, my godfather (RIP) would tell me stories about the paranormal. I never asked for them. But he told me anyway. He was my first exposure to things like Bigfoot and the Loch Ness monster. Every time I left his house, I was scared. But I couldn’t wait to go back and learn more.

As I grew up, my interest grew. I have been on a few ghost hunts myself. I have experienced a few things that I can’t quite explain. And I’m proud of my experiences as a paranormal investigator. I plan on doing more of in my future.

What makes this book more exciting (and this is breaking news) is that I intend it to be a series. There will at least be a second Paranormal Contact book, with more personal stories included. Everything Comes Full Circle is a stand alone book with no need for a sequel. But Paranormal Contact will have at least one sequel, if not more.

Another half-chapter in “Paranormal Contact”

What you are about to read is actually the set up for the entire book “Paranormal Contact”. Earlier in the book the characters of Jason, Shawn and Brad were sharing their experiences they have had with the paranormal. They involve everything from ghosts to demons. This is what actually gets the action going for the novel.

____________________________________________________________________

“We don’t have a good alien story!” Shawn momentarily glared at Brad, who just laughed it off.

“Actually, I have a story about a possible UFO sighting,” Jason said.

“It’s probably just as scary as your window knocking story,” Shawn said as he shook his head.

“Let him tell the story!” Brad snapped.

“It was about fifteen years or so ago. It was probably around eight o’clock at night when I went out to collect some wood for the wood burning stove. The wood piles were on the side of the house. As I stepped out of the garage. As I did and I know this sounds really stupid, I looked up to the skies and said something like ‘I know you guys are out there somewhere’. Give me a break. I was watching a show about aliens when my dad told me to get the wood.” Shawn rolled his eyes in disgust. “I turned the corner from the garage and that’s when I saw it….”

“What did you see?” Greg asked. His eyes opened wide as he listened. Brad listened intently as well. Shawn, however, sat in his chair zoning out a little bit.

“As I came around the corner I saw three lights hovering above the trees behind my house. They were in a triangle shape with two lights on top and a third light on the bottom.” As he spoke he held up his hands to illustrate it. “I felt like I was out there for like five minutes. All of a sudden the lights zoomed off to the right. I ran inside to tell my father what I saw. He asked me why I was gone for twenty minutes and didn’t bring back any wood with me. I told him what happened. He didn’t believe me,”

Greg sat there with his mouth slightly open in shock. “That was just out in the back yard here?” Jason nodded his head.

“It was probably a plane or a helicopter. I am sure it wasn’t anything extraterrestrial,” Shawn said. Brad turned to him with a scowl on his face. “What? Am I not allowed to have my opinion on something? Whatever.” Shawn turned to Jason. “Good story, man” he said sarcastically. “So anyway, back to what I was saying before Jason’s story. I think we should make this trip just a little more interesting.”

“What did you have in mind?” Jason asked.

“ Very simple. We turn this into a little competition. We find a place that is a bit of a hot spot for aliens as well as ghosts. And we break up into two teams. First team to get undeniable evidence wins.”

“What constitutes undeniable evidence? What do the winning teams win?” asked Greg.

Shawn’s forehead crinkled as he thought for a second. “I don’t know. Why do I have to think of everything? We can think of that on the way. The question is are you in?” Shawn looked at Brad.

“I don’t think you need to ask me that. I’m in,” he said confidently. Shawn turned his attention to Jason.

“Sounds like fun. You can come me in as well.” Everyone looked at Greg.

He took a deep breath. Greg could feel all the eyes in the room on him. He looked down at the ground nervously before standing up, allowing his eyes to look everyone. “You only live once. What’s the worse that could happen?”

“Well then it’s settled, gentlemen. Brad and I will take on aliens. Jason and Greg will take on ghosts. First team to have undeniable proof wins. But I will leave it up to you as to what the prize is and what is undeniable evidence.”

Welcome to JefftrelBooks, this is where I write about my progress of writing my novels.
