Many thanks to everybody at The Tattered Cover in Aspen Grove last night. (Particular shout-outs to Portia and Cliff.) Tonight at 6 PM we’re at https://www.watermarkbooks.com. No one has thrown a single thing yet during the whole tour, so it must be going well. Meanwhile here’s an article that came out today that we find very interesting – and not just because we’re the subject.

Many thanks to the wonderful audience – a participant audience! – last night in Houston. Tonight at 7 we’re at https://poisonedpen.com in Arizona. C&B country!

Meanwhile here’s Debra, happy with something that just came in the mail. (Not the cat.)

And it was a special treat to see BooBear’s Mom there last night!

One more thing – anyone who should have received a copy of Upper Story but didn’t, please email toradvertising@tor.com and tell them. You should get the story quickly after that.

Tonight, 6:30 – Murder By The Book – one of the greatest crime fiction bookstores in the USA – talk, reading, Q&A, even possible fun. 2342 Bissonnet St, Houston TX 77005. Delighted that we’re partnering for this event with the Rescued Pets Movement – rescuedpetsmovement.org

Maybe someone at one of the signings will bring a guitar and sing Song For Chet!

Stompin’ at the Savoy

Many thanks to the Savoy Bookshop in Westerly RI for last night’s event. One of the most beautiful book stores we’ve ever been in. And no one threw anything – always the sign of a successful appearance. Plus it was very nice that we could be partnering with Stand Up For Animals, a wonderful organization. The Heart of Barkness tour continues next week, starting at Murder By The Book in Houston. (For tour info – click events at peterabrahams.com.) Meanwhile, Happy 4th, everybody! We just did a quick search for the word “American” in Chet and Bernie, and this brief excerpt from Scents and Sensibility popped up:

“But it wouldn’t be just!” said Mrs. Parsons. “Locking someone up for buying the wrong cactus? What country are we in?”

A tough question. The Valley was in Arizona, a fact I’d picked up fairly recently. Also we were Americans, me and Bernie. That was as far as I could take it. Maybe not far, but farther than Iggy. He wriggled around on the footstool, getting more comfortable, and began to snore.
