Introducing myself with Free Short Story

Post by mlouisalocke » Sun November 21st, 2010, 2:28 am


I published a historical mystery a year ago, Maids of Misfortune: A Victorian San Francisco Mystery, and have been so pleased that it has been #1 on Kindle's historical mystery list for the last four months. Its about a young widow, Annie Fuller, living in 1879 San Francisco who runs a boarding house and supplements her income as a Clairvoyant, Sibyl. In Maids of Misfortune she joins with a lawyer Nate Dawson to investigate the mysterious death of one of Madam Sibyl's clients.

I wasn't sure how to introduce myself to this group, when I saw an earlier post advertising a free short story and thought I would do the same. You can find Dandy Detects, a short story that features some of the people living in Annie Fuller's boarding house for free on Smashwords, or 99 cents on Kindle.

I would love for you to give it a try, or check out Maids of Misfortune itself, and let me know what you think of it.
