Pub Note

Pub schedule for 2023: Mrs. Plansky’s Revenge – July 25; Up On The Woof Top – October 17. Both are available for pre-order, although only the cover art for Mrs. P is showing right now, the cover art not yet done for Up On The Woof Top (the next Chet and Bernie).

In answer to many questions, Mrs. P is not a Chet and Bernie story. Occasionally a non-C&B idea pops up in my mind demanding my attention. For example, there was The Right Side a few years back. The tone and story of Mrs. Plansky’s Revenge are very different from The Right Side (the tone of which is certainly darker) and Mrs. P herself is very unlike LeAnne Hogan, the main character of The Right Side, although they have one thing in common: Under duress, they each find something strong and unexpected within.

But my main point is that I am very sure that readers who like the Chet and Bernie stories will also like Mrs. P. Secondary point: there’s lots more Chet and Bernie to come. Please feel free to share this post with friends who like to read.

    Spence makes a valid point. Indeed, I seem to recall an author from the not-too-distant past who wrote some truly excellent books that were not Chet and Bernie stories either. You may have heard of him, he goes by the name of Peter Abrahams.

    I can’t wait for Mrs. P’s book to come out and I am already hoping for it to be a series!

    After 50 years of being an Alaskan, I have broken down and bought a $2,000 snowblower. The 3+ feet of snow that fell in a two-week period in December has been too much for me. The city is still behind in plowing which is very unusual. Of course buying this expensive piece of equipment means that the next few winters will be ones with not very much snow.

    RIO! I’m sorry about your Yahtzees. :^) We have had a lot of rain in this neck of the woods for the past couple of weeks. We haven’t even had a lot of days below 40 degrees.

    Of course I will post your Friend’s quilling projects! I am looking at Laverne and Shirley as I type!

    Here is the quilling that lives in my spare bedroom. Dawson may have noticed it when she visited in December?

    I had to move it to Mr.Fireslippers messy desk to take the picture. It is dark in that room right now. Usually the little vase sits on the side table next to the bed and is very decorative!
