Chapter Ten of Entitled to Murder: A Cozy Mystery Short Story

The end of act one has arrived. And, I’m excited to share this next chapter of my cozy mystery short story with you. Partly because I’m excited about writing this story and the series, and the story changes after this point. But, more on that later. One of the exciting things about writing within the murder mystery and cozy mystery genres is the research. Although, I suspect I might be on some time of watch list, thanks to my internet search history after the various research sessions I conducted.  You’ll see what I mean when you get to the end of the chapter. Don’t worry, this story is still gore-free.

Chapter Eight of Entitled to Murder: A Cozy Mystery Short Story

I’m tearing myself away from writing my cozy mystery short story, Entitled to Murder to share chapter eight, straight off the presses. Well technically, there are no presses. But, you get it, I’ve just finished revising and editing the chapter, and I’m a little over-excited. In other news, I made a minor addition to the ebook’s cover art because I’ve decided to make Tiberius, the grey English Shorthair cat a regular character in the series.

Chapter Seven of Entitled to Murder: A Cozy Mystery Short Story

Here it is the seventh chapter of my cozy mystery short story titled, Entitled to Murder. Originally, this chapter contained two scenes, but I realised as I reached the end of the scene that you’re about to read, this needed to be it’s own chapter. At the moment, there are three chapters until I reach the end of act one. I am hoping to keep sharing chapters regularly on this blog. Hopefully, I won’t hit a writing snag that requires substantial research. Fingers crossed.

Chapter Six of Entitled to Murder: A Cozy Mystery Short Story

Here it is the sixth chapter of my cozy mystery short story titled, Entitled to Murder. Yes, I’m still calling it a short story, even though I suspect the story will be the length of a novella. At the moment, I’ve reached the twenty percent mark of the story, and I’m about to start writing chapters seven, eight, and nine. I am hoping to keep sharing chapters every day on this blog. Hopefully, I won’t hit a writing snag that requires substantial research. Fingers crossed. Every few days, I will release a chapter from Entitled to Murder on this blog throughout the next few weeks. Keep your eyes peeled for the next chapter.
