Have I mentioned that Of Mutts And Men, the most recent Chet and Bernie (a-series-that-can-be-read-in-any-order™), is now available in paperback? A convenient format for beach reading. Also hammock reading. Meanwhile Kim H.M. sends the following photo and this note:

“So, I’m a high school teacher , guess what one of my students wore to school today?!? HAWAIIAN PANTS!”

As C&B readers know, of course, Hawaiian pants spell financial ruin.


More on Buddy

This is a post we always like to do – when the human companion tells us a little about Chet’s new friend of the month. Thanks to Kelsy Allan for this on Buddy:

“Yay! Thanks so much! Buddy is (in my very biased opinion) one of the coolest (besides Chet of course), cutest, and craziest dogs around (almost as crazy as Iggy). He was a street pup and then a shelter pup for about 7 years until he came home with me for another 7 years (and counting) of adventures all around New England! Super happy to represent Chets friend of the month!”

On Sunday we do beginnings, taking a look at the start of a Peter Abrahams novel, including those written under the Spencer Quinn moniker™. Is there a rule that it has to be a book that’s already published? Let’s ignore it! Here’s the beginning of Tender Is The Bite, coming July 7. (And please don’t forget – all who preorder will get for free the digital short story The Numbers After Two; it will just pop into your inbox on  pub date.)

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

That had to be one of Bernie’s jokes. Have I mentioned that he can be quite the jokester? Probably not, since we’re just getting started, but who else except Bernie would even think of saying that? We were creeping along at walking speed on the East Canyon Freeway at rush hour, stuck in an endless river of traffic – of course we were being followed, followed by too many cars to count! Not only too many for me to count – I don’t go past two – but also for Bernie. And Bernie’s always the smartest human in the room, one of the reasons the Little Detective Agency is so successful, leaving out the finances part. It’s called that on account of Bernie’s last name being Little. I’m Chet, pure and simple, not the smartest human in the room, in fact, not human. I bring other things to the table.

The random number generator speaks: “Buddy!” That makes Buddy Chet’s FB May Friend. Buddy will be the profile pic for the month and Buddy’s human companion gets a signed copy of Of Mutts And Men, the latest Chet and Bernie novel. Since the month is well underway, the human companion will also get a copy of The Numbers After Two, the special digital-only short story written to accompany all preorders of Tender Is The Bite, the next Chet and Bernie. (I’ll print the story right off my computer, and of course the human companion won’t be sharing it!) Next month this could be you – just post a pic to the FB page at any time.
