“I hear there were a lot of great title suggestions,” Admin says.

“It was really impressive,” Spence says. “And the Plunderers were responsible for many of the best. But we fell head over heels for George Scott’s (he’s from Peerless Book Store in Alpharetta GA) entry. Here’s George and Buddy Thor looking at poster art of the new cover.”

Welcome beautiful dude from the recent past, Mrs. Murphy.



Chet and Bernie # 6

“We may have some news on this soon,” Admin says. “Title-wise. Meanwhile here’s a photo of bayou country. I snuck into your office over Thanksgiving, by the way.”

“What?” says Spence.

“Yeah. And just leafed through some pages, including that scene where Chet has an encounter with – “

Ridiculously Early Sneak Peek


October 12th, 2012 Posted 10:32 am

At Book 6 in the Chet and Bernie series – the one that maybe you can give a title to! Here, from Chapter One:

We rounded a curve and spotted some dudes in orange jump suits picking up trash by the road side, a sheriff’s van idling behind them, yellow light flashing. Bernie eased off the gas. We’d put a lot of perps in orange jump suits and you never knew when you’d bump into an old pal.

“Hey,” Bernie said. “Isn’t that Frenchie Boutette?”

The little round dude at the end, poking at a scrap of paper, missing, taking a short break? He glanced our way, recognized the car, easy to tell from how his eyebrows shot up. Yes, Frenchie for sure. We pulled over.

“Frenchie! How’s it going?”

Frenchie looked at Bernie, then at me, and backed away.

“Don’t be shy,” Bernie said. “We’re not going to bite you.”

“Think I’m fallin’ for that line again?” Frenchie said.

Titles Reminder


October 10th, 2012 Posted 8:53 am

“Any titles coming in?” says Spence.

“Yes,” says Admin, “but I’m sworn to secrecy.”

“Should we remind everyone what this is all about?”

“How can it hurt?” Admin says. “The point is you out there have a chance to name the next Chet and Bernie mystery. All I know about it is it takes place mostly in the Big Easy and nearby bayou country. Please email with your title ideas in the subject line. That way we’ll have them all in one place – always the goal of the small-time bureaucrat!”

Welcome Dirty Harry from Tasmania, Flyn (good to see you again!), Riley, Murphy.
