Of Mutts and Men Preorder Info


February 25th, 2020 Posted 7:31 am

All who preorder Of Mutts And Men, the new Chet and Bernie novel (July) will receive a bonus short story for free. Just save your receipt. Starting April 1 the publisher will have a preorder site set up where you’ll be able to send the receipt. Here are some answers to questions that are coming up.

1. Please don’t send receipts here. The publisher will provide a place starting April 1.
2. The name of the story is: The Iggy Chronicles, Volume 2.
3. For those interested in getting signed copies at this year’s tour – the tour is not set up yet. But when it is, all appearances will be posted here. (I now have a Hawaiian shirt I may sport at one of them.)
4. If you’ve already preordered and can’t find your receipt – please look again. But if you still can’t, I’ll see what the publisher has to say. Bottom line: don’t worry.
5. Publishers are fond of preorders. Writers and fond publishers get along well.

This story reminded reader Linda Brayton of Chet in The Sound and the Furry. Thanks, Linda, for sending it in!

On Sundays we do beginnings, taking a look at the start of a Peter Abrahams novel, including those written under the Spencer Quinn moniker. How about Reality Check, my first young adult novel and winner of the Edgar Award in that category? (I heard from a school librarian this week who hands it out to boys who hate reading.)

[“The best writer of psychological suspense around.”

Except for football Fridays, Cody Laredo’s favorite day of the school year was always the last. Now, May 30, final day of his sophomore year at County High, he sat in the back row of homeroom, waiting for the teacher – a sub he’d never seen before – to hand out the report cards. As long as there were no Fs – even one would make him ineligible for football in the fall, meaning summer school, an impossibility since he had to work – Cody didn’t care what was in the report card. He just wanted out.
