Upper Story (More)

Here’s a little excerpt from UPPER STORY, the new Chet and Bernie short story, free to all pre-orderers of HEART OF BARKNESS, the next C&B novel (see link below).

“So you’re implying … ?” Rick said.

Dr. Bethea nodded. “This would be the time to say goodbye.”

Saying goodbye? But we’d only just gotten here! I wanted to stick around, watch Bernie sleep, take in his smell, which … which had actually changed since our last visit. And changed for the better, in a way that’s hard to describe, especially to someone with a nose like yours. No offense. For someone with a nose like mine no description was necessary.




Happy Patriots’ Day!

To the rest of the country – from one of the places that celebrates it (the 2 being Mass. and Maine). Lots of rain right now, so the Red Sox traditional 11 AM game may be delayed, but the Marathon will be up and running – heh heh – on time. As for what it’s about, here, from Emerson’s Concord Hymn:

By the rude bridge that arched the flood,
Their flag to April’s breeze unfurled,
Here once the embattled farmers stood,
And fired the shot heard round the world.

Instead we’ll be on a long(ish) bike ride on our new Trek FX2. Day-Glo green – can’t miss me.

5.0 out of 5 stars – Great book! – April 10, 2019.

My daughter and I really enjoyed reading this book together. Suspense, comedy and a dog and cat. Purrfect! Can’t wait for the next one.
