Two brothers, unalike in nearly every way,

In a small town in California, where we lay our scene,

Where brotherly blood must overcome all obstacles

Lest the show not go on.


Coming soon from Tuxedo Cat Press–the lighthearted story of two very different brothers who must find a way to work together on a community theater production of Romeo and Juliet.

A Word from Our Managing Editor

Dear Readers,

My name is Charlotte Antoinette Burgh. Once upon a time, I was a pregnant stray. Then, I was a shelter kitty, waiting to be adopted while my adorable little kittens easily found homes.

Today, I am the managing editor of Tuxedo Cat Press.

It’s Small Business Saturday!

Here in the US, it’s Small Business Saturday, a day when we encourage everybody to shop at their local small businesses. Thanks to the internet, it’s possible to shop at many small businesses from the comfort of your home, but we guarantee that they’d love to see you in person!

Reader Elizabeth Flynn sent this photo after she purchased State v. Claus at her local independent bookstore, River Bend Bookshop in Glastonbury, Connecticut. This means that she supported THREE local businesses: River Bend Bookshop, Tuxedo Cat Press, and author P. Jo Anne Burgh. Way to go, Elizabeth!

State v. Claus is available at local bookstores nationwide. If your store doesn’t have it in stock, just tell the person in charge of ordering that it’s available through Ingram. They’ll know what that means.

Thanks for supporting local businesses!
