Reader Mail

Here’s a very recent email:

“Love this series. Just starting Heart of Barkness. As a dog lover/guardian I wanted to express my hope that the series won’t end with Chet’s death. Please let them retire somewhere after a successful investment payout. I would be heartbroken if Chet dies and could never reread the series. Anyone who has ever loved and lost a dog would surely agree. Here’s hoping!”

We get similar messages quite often. How can a writer answer without giving too much away and thus undermining his own suspense? I’ll take a swing at it:

  1. I don’t mind eliciting tears from the reader, but I won’t do it in cheap and easy ways.
  2. Chet is the narrator and sole voice of an ongoing series I love writing.
  3. I myself have no intention of retiring.

Reader Jack Lessenberry sends in the following. (Thanks, Jack! Anyone else have a Chet of their own?)

“I have been a fan for years, and now proudly can say that my new Aussie puppy Chet just seized his first perp by the pants leg — me!”

“Chet, reading about you and your partner Bernie has made the stay-at-home order a bit more tolerable. On the last day the library was open I must have checked out 6 of your books. I am eagerly awaiting the release of the next one and really hope that it is on time and that the world is in a better place then. I am not one for writing fan letters, this is my first, but like I said reading your stories has kept me entertained and less anxious. I love your carefree attitude. Keep it up.”
