Hi, everybody! Pete is off on a bike ride, followed by last minute shopping, so I’m taking over today. And here’s my message re holiday shopping: “Two for the price of two!” I’m talking about It’s A Wonderful Woof, the new holiday Chet and Bernie novel, plus the digital short story Santa 365. No need to have already read any C&B – your giftee can start with these since the series can be read in any order, thanks to Pete’s secret (and patent-pending) process. Does this post seem a little pushy to you? Hello? I’m a publicist! Shy strikes out in my business.

Beginnings

On Sunday we do beginnings, taking a look at the start of a Peter Abrahams novel including those written under the Spencer Quinn moniker™. Since some might be in need of a digital stocking stuffer, how about Santa 365, an e-short story? (And for those who want more of holiday time Chet and Bernie, there’s the brand new novel It’s A Wonderful Woof.) Here’s the beginning of Santa 365:

“There’s no Santa Claus,” Charlie said.

“Who told you that?” said Bernie.

“Esmé.”

“Who’s Esmé?”

“At school.”

“Well,” said Bernie, “everyone has their own opinion.”

“It’s not an opinion, Dad,” said Charlie. “It’s a scientific fact.”

“Oh?”

“From a scientist.”

“Any scientist in particular?”

“Groucho Marx.”

“Esmé told you that?”

“Uh-huh.”

“Know much about Groucho Marx?”

Charlie shrugged his skinny little shoulders. “He was a scientist and he said there ain’t no Santa Claus.”

“What do Esmé’s parents do?”

“Drive her to school. Pick her up.”

“I meant for a living.”

“Like you’re a private eye?”

“Yeah. Like that.”

“I don’t think they’re private eyes,” Charlie said.

“Why not?”

“They’re rich.”

Word is holiday shopping is underway. Here’s an idea for anyone who might be interested in the Chet and Bernie series. How about It’s A Wonderful Woof, the new holiday novel, plus for a digital stocking the digital short story Santa 365? An elf figures in both, but the two elves are rather different. No need to have already read any C&B – your giftee can start with these since the series can be read in any order, thanks to … well, a miracle of some kind!

Perhaps you’ve already read It’s A Wonderful Woof, the brand new Chet and Bernie novel (and thanks, if you have), but would still be up for another little taste of Chet and Bernie at holiday time. If so, there’s this digital short story, available at all the usual places. A little something for your digital stocking.
