We’ve been getting questions on how to buy the Chet and Bernie e-short stories – A Cat Was Involved, The Iggy Chronicles, Tail of Vengeance, Santa 365. Here’s the answer: If you have an iPhone, Android, or any other smartphone — download the Kindle, Kobo, Nook or Apple iBooks apps and you can buy them through the app. You can also download Adobe Digital Editions (for free). You can then even print them from your computer.

In answer to some questions that have come up, there are 4 Chet and Bernie short stories, available from all the usual places. They are:

A CAT WAS INVOLVED – the C&B origin story.

THE IGGY CHRONICLES, VOLUME 1 – Iggy!

TAIL OF VENGEANCE – The story of the Teitelbaum Divorce, a nightmarish case Chet often refers to.

SANTA 365 – a Christmas mystery.

Anyone with change under a seat cushion can afford these! (Comment from Mrs. Publicist)

What’s In A Name?

Mrs. Publicist: Fifteenth of the month, when we discuss names. You’ve mentioned, Pete (aka Spence), how important names are to you, and that you actually can’t write the character until you have the right name. How about this month we talk about Iggy, Chet’s best pal, especially since his name was suggested by readers yesterday?

Pete: I’m not the first artist (for want of a better word) to fall for the appeal of the name Iggy. In that I stand on the shoulders of Jim Osterberg, Jr. And may I recommend in passing Jim’s duet with Francoise Hardy of I’ll Be Seeing You.

Mrs. P: And what is the appeal of the name Iggy?

Pete: For me, the appeal was that the character came fully formed as soon as the name popped into my mind. Iggy’s all about id, lack of restraint, totally unselfconscious goofiness and yearning.

Mrs. P: And then to have him pretty much shut inside the Parsons’s house for the whole series so far, watching Chet through the window?

Pete: Makes the odd moment when they do get together –

Mrs. P: Like the bathroom scene in The Dog Who Knew Too Much?

Pete: – all the more explosive.

Mrs. P: Thanks, Pete. Iggy appears by the way in HEART OF BARKNESS, now available for preorder. In the meantime, there’s always the e-short story pictured here.
