Remastered, aka re-edited and recompressed, episode 1: It's still a "first episode", but it's cleaned up, and the transitions are smoother. Enjoy.   In which Carla explains why eccentric doesn’t equal crazy, that horror poetry is a thing, and cupcakes are linked to better mental health. And books. So many books.

In which Carla reads to you from her novel, Watching the Detectives, which is based upon a missing-person true crime case.   And they were all rich. Rich in looks, rich in opportunity, rich in already wasted opportunities, rich in network, and rich in funds. And rich in frustrations, many of which they could not even name. --Carla Hufstedler, Watching the Detectives   Website: theremightbecupcakes.com Facebook Page: theremightbecupcakes Facebook Group: There Might Be Cupcakes Twitter: mightbecupcakes Instagram: theremightbecupcakes Host: theremightbecupcakes.podbean Sponsor: Audible Patreon: Cupcakes  
In which Carla reads from her own novel-in-progress, continuing from Episode 14: Watching the Detectives, Part 1   In this investigative vacuum, the public and the press are left to fill in the space with theories, and that is exactly what is occurring. On the Tyler College campus, factions continue to escalate via old-fashioned flyers and digital back-and-forth, and the fevered undercurrents of classism and sexism, in the face of no information, continue to swell. Parents of Tyler College students are clogging the college’s switchboards and email accounts, demanding to know if they should withdraw their children for their own safety. Whisper campaigns are rampant in both Rockingham and Loudon Counties about the possible fate of Beatrice Burchett. Public morale and confidence in the police are threatened at this time, due to silence and perceived lack of investigation. And still, a 21-year-old woman is not in class with her peers, where she belongs.   Website: theremightbecupcakes.com Facebook Page: theremightbecupcakes Facebook Group: There Might Be Cupcakes Twitter: mightbecupcakes Instagram: theremightbecupcakes Host: theremightbecupcakes.podbean Sponsor: Audible Patreon: Cupcakes
