The Case of the Tom Cat
A couple years ago, I wrote a short story titled The Case of the Tom Cat. At the end of March 2009, I submitted it to Mystic Moon Press, which is primarily an e-book publisher. On April 4, 2009, Mystic Moon Press contracted the story. Originally, it involved Sherlock Holmes, but because of copy right, I had to change the names of certain people. It is a teaser mystery story. It is over 3,000 words long.
On May 28, 2009, it was supposed to be released to the public, so they could buy it. Because of terrible thunderstorms off and on at Kris's home, she was unable to update the website. Today, The Case of the Tom Cat should be available for sale. It is the first story that I have ever submitted anywhere, and I'm so excited that people will be able to read my work.
Here is what The Case of the Tom Cat is about:
Charlotte Parker is a brilliant journalist who writes under the pen name Charles P. Barker for the Pall Mall Gazette. After finding a bloody message to stop writing or else is left on her bedroom wall, she seeks Detective Liam O’Hare’s assistance in solving the case. He immediately takes the case, and along with his trusty sidekick Dr. Johnson, they are led to the back alleys of the brothel known as the Tom Cat, where Charlotte is working on an unofficial story. Liam O’Hare must solve this case soon before the fiend’s threat is carried out.
