Some, though not all of my friends here, will know that in addition to my writing, I'm also a dedicated dog lover, rescuer, and owner of a number of rescued dogs of varying breeds. I'm delighted that Sonar 4 Publications, the publisher of my forthcoming novel Behind Closed Doors, a Victorian Murder Mystery, have generously agreed to donate $1 from the sale of every paperback copy sold to The Mayflower Animal Sanctuary who do such wonderful work in rescuing and rehoming dogs, cats and various small animals.I have high hopes that the book will do well and help raise funds for the sanctuary, where 4 of our dogs came from.
The book will be released within the next two months or so, and the publisher has now made it available to pre order at Sonar 4 Publications
In case anyone is wondering what Behind Closed Doors is about...
Autumn, 1888. The population of London is transfixed and horrified by the atrocious and horrific murder spree being conducted by Jack the Ripper. The newspapers are full of the details of the mutilations perpetrated by the killer and the apparent inability of the police to apprehend the unknown assailant. As Metropolitan Police Commissioner, Sir Charles Warren throws the bulk of his investigative resources into the search for The Ripper, and the tabloid press scream of the crimes in banner headlines on a daily basis; on the new, ultra modern Underground Railway that has revolutionized travel around the great metropolis for the working man, another, less well publicized killer is at large.
