Friend of the Month Reminder


September 30th, 2023 Posted 7:54 am

30 days hath … whoa! Last day of the month already! Time for the friend of the month reminder. Basically just send in a pic to the FB page. The random number generator (below) does the choosing. Chet’s friend of the month is the profile pic for the month – where Sugar is now – and the winner’s human companion gets a signed copy of the latest Chet and Bernie novel – Bark To The Future (or this month only, you can choose Mrs. Plansky’s Revenge.)

There seems to be a lot of politics happening! Chet defines it (sort of) in Tender Is The Bite, which is on sale digitally – $2.99! $2.99! – for two more days. With inflation the seller may end up owing you!



The Writing Game (As My Grandmother Called It)

He gestured with his chin, one of the best human moves there is – I’d like to see more of it – at the blank sheet of paper on the table.
“Thought I’d take a swing at writing, big guy. Writing a story. Made up. You know. Fiction.”
I did not know but whatever this was had that non-starter feeling about it. For some reason I thought right away about Hawaiian pants and tin futures.
(Chet and Bernie in Up On The Woof Top, coming Oct. 17. Preorderable. Is it too early to be buying holiday presents?)

The Book Show


September 27th, 2023 Posted 7:06 am

This morning at 9AM ET I’ll be on Cape and Islands NPR’s book show, discussing books on painters and painting with my friend librarian emerita Jill Erickson and the host of The Point, Mindy Todd. I better think of something to say pretty quick.

RIP Brooks Robinson
