From Chet’s FB Page

This applies here at the blog as well:

A couple of days ago we asked for suggestions for some sort of contest where we could give away an advance reader copy of the next Chet and Bernie novel, Of Mutts and Men. (ARC’s are bound galleys sent to reviewers and bookstore people, the actual writer getting very few.) Amy Broughman suggested that the ARC go to someone named Amy Broughman, but perhaps that is topped by Tamara J. Mault who thought of a haiku contest on the subject of Chet. (Haikus are 17 syllable Japanese poems divided into lines of 5,7,5.) Should we give that a whirl? (Meanwhile Tamara, for her idea, wins an ARC – please message us a mailing address, Tamara.) We’ll keep this open for a few days. (I’ll sign the ARC, of course.)

“The ARCs of The Dog Who Knew Too Much arrived?” says Spence.

“Yup,” says Admin. “But the cover art isn’t the cover art that’ll be on the actual book.”

“Better explain ARCs.”

“Advance Reader Copies. Really just bound uncorrected galley proofs. In fact, weren’t there a number of changes after the first-pass galleys?”

“Mostly little ones,” says Spence. “Now our challenge is going to be getting a photo of it and sending it to Melanie by deadline time for the  auction.”

“Good luck.”
