We’ve had a number of questions re how the Tender Is The Bite promotion works. Answers:

It applies to preorders (meaning prior to July 6) of Tender Is The Bite, the next Chet and Bernie novel, in hardcover or digital form.
Once preordered, save receipt.
Go to the link below and fill in the blanks.
On July 6, the special short story written just for this will pop into your inbox. It’s called The Numbers After Two. (I kind of like it!)
And voila! Also, for those new to C&B, this series can read in any order! Don’t be afraid!


Hawaiian Pants (More)

The subject of Hawaiian pants (important plot element in the Chet and Bernie series) and male rompers came up yesterday. Many thanks to Hobbit for sending this image. She quotes the advertising: “Be the life of the party. Have the girls flock to you!”



Hawaiian Pants

As readers of the Chet and Bernie series know, Hawaiian pants play a highly negative role in the fortunes of C&B. Here’s a pertinent email from Ellen, a very entertaining reader. (If anyone has relevant photo evidence, please send.)

Hello. I’m a big fan of your Chet and Bernie books. As a sharp eyed reader, I just wanted to alert you to the fact that there is a fashion trend out there that is alarmingly like Bernie’s beloved Hawaiian pants. It is the male romper. I just saw a young man, seemingly normal, in a pink floral romper at a waterfront restaurant on the Chesapeake Bay. Every older woman dining on the deck followed him with their eyes. Men averted their eyes and mumbled things like, “Did he lose a bet to have to wear that?”. His party walked to a pavilion bar at the end of the pier. I didn’t get a great look at his outfit, not having my glasses on, so I walked down the pier to take a look at the bar & the onesie wearer. The romper wearer was with a group of 20-somethings, part of a pre wedding get together. His friend was leaning into him and I heard this snatch of a conversation. “…attention. You just had to wear that f***ing…..”. Very close to those Hawaiian pants, very close.

Road Dog Trucking is one of my favorite channels on SiriusXM Radio – 146. So I’m very happy  that I’ll be live today on Dave Nemo Weekends, with hosts Jimmy Mac and Clare Marie – great hosts! – to talk Chet and Bernie and TenderIs The Bite, trucking and, well, anything!

10 ET, 9 central, 8 mountain, 7 Pacific.
