Client Behavior


March 5th, 2021 Posted 7:27 am


She ran to the Kia, an unsteady kind of run, almost losing her balance. What was going on? Was she a client? This wasn’t normal client behavior – maybe later in a case, yes, but not at the very start. She got in her car and slammed the door.

“Wait!” Bernie called.

Mavis took off, pulling into the street and speeding down the block. Bernie! Let’s go! On the stick!

But Bernie just sat there. “What happened?” he said. He watched until Mavis was out of sight. “Any point in chasing after her?”

Any point in chasing after somebody? I didn’t understand the question.

Instead we wrap up the final revisions on It’s A Wonderful Woof, the Chet and Bernie Christmas/holiday novel coming after Tender Is The Bite. My part is just about done. Over to you, readers! (As for revision, the trick in getting it right is in plain sight in the word itself – seeing again.)

On Sundays we do beginnings – taking a look at the start of a Peter Abrahams novel, including those written under the Spencer Quinn moniker. How about today we do Tender Is The Bite, the next Chet and Bernie novel, coming July 6 (“and now available for preorder!” – Mrs. Publicist’s pushy mom)? Sometimes, starting a book, we like to hit the ground running.

“I think we’re being followed,” Bernie said.
