Confusion and Beginnings


September 18th, 2022 Posted 8:06 am

First, to clear up a bit of confusion. Here’s the pub schedule. The paperback of It’s A Wonderful Woof – Oct. 18. Mrs. Plansky’s Revenge – July 25, 2023. Still untitled Chet and Bernie Christmas/holiday novel – sometime in the fall of 2o23. Mrs. Plansky’s Revenge is not a C&B, so some readers were worried that there would be no more C&B. Worry not!

Meanwhile, Bark To The Future is the latest C&B, available now, like this very instant. Here’s how it starts:

“Let’s see what this baby can do,” Bernie said.

And there you have it. Bernie’s brilliance, lighting up the whole oil-stained yard at Nixon’s Championship Autobody. Let’s see what this baby can do. Can you imagine anyone else saying that? I sure can’t. I wouldn’t even try, and who knows Bernie better than me? Sometimes humans talk to themselves, as you may or may not know. Humans have a lot going on in their heads. Too much? I couldn’t tell you. But I wouldn’t trade places. Let’s leave it at that. The point is that when they’re talking to themselves they’re trying to dig down through all the too-muchness and get to what’s at the bottom, digging, as it happens, being one of my very best things. Maybe we’ll get to that later. For now, the takeaway is that Bernie talks to himself in front of me. So I know what’s at the bottom of Bernie, way down deep, case closed. Closing cases is what we do, by the way, me and Bernie. We’re partners in the Little Detective Agency – Little on account of that’s Bernie’s last name. Call me Chet, pure and simple. Our cases usually get closed by me grabbing the perp by the pant leg. Although there were no perps around right now and we weren’t even working a case, my teeth got a funny feeling.


Pub Schedule


January 7th, 2021 Posted 8:25 am

There will be two Chet and Bernie novels in 2021. First, Tender Is The Bite, coming July 6 or possibly in June, depending on Covid-related publishing issues. Second, a Christmas/holiday novel called It’s A Wonderful Woof, coming October 19. A team of writers – meaning me – is just getting to the climax of that one at this very moment! Both are now available for preorder. And now au boulot, as the French say, meaning back to work.


The Right Side


May 10th, 2016 Posted 9:38 am

Some speculation re the meaning of yesterday’s post in the comments, so: yes, THE RIGHT SIDE is the title of the next adult novel from this operation. It is not a Chet and Bernie novel (although there is a member of the nation within in it, in a non-narrating role). THE RIGHT SIDE pub date will be confirmed soon, but it will probably be a year from now. After that: more C&B! There will also be another Bowser and Birdie novel (middle-grade) next spring, and meanwhile, there’s this:
