Football season starts in less than two weeks, so in case I don't get a chance to say goodbye to everyone, I hope you have a great winter, and I'll see you in February. ...

Do a football Andy carpenter book enjoy

please, use the half time to write another Andy Carpenter!!!

Miss youπŸ‰πŸ‰πŸ‰

Just finished Collared and loved it.

Go Patriots. Just picked up Collared. πŸˆπŸ˜€

Can't wait for high school and college football 🏈 to start!!

Does that mean no writing for you.

No way! Get started on your next book! We will keep you up to date on the football scores.

Write while you watch!!!

Enjoy !

Football's not every day, I think you could squeeze in some writing don't you? Sure you do. Go Buckeyes! Go Cleveland Browns!

I am right along side of you! I love my football! Happy holidays!

It's bad enough I become a football widow, but do I have to suffer not being able to read a thrilling new book because one of my favorite authors is hiding under the guise of a football fan(atic)?

You should write during the beer and Viagra commercials.

Love the comments❀️

Go Patriots!!!🏈🏈🏈🏈🏈😁😁😁

You will be missed!

Go Big Blue !!!!!!

2 weeks to write non stop...get on it

Write during half time and commercials!!!!.....please....

Me too. I am getting my couch ready and alerting my friends so they won't think I've died. Also, I am almost finished with Collared, so won't need to do any reading til your next book comes out. Enjoy the games and that frozen pizza! πŸ˜„πŸ•πŸ•πŸˆ

You and Andy have a lot in common, don't you?😊

I hope you're a Pats fan now that you live in Maine🏈

I will be reading.

I love everything about summer, except for the heat, the bugs, the traffic, the ticks, the thunderstorms and fireworks that torture the dogs, the humidity, the killer turtles, and the lack of football. But today, I will grudgingly admit from the vantage point of our deck, was a nice day. Having said that, 20 days and counting until college football... ...

Sounds like summer I Texas, with emphasis on THE HEAT!

You poor thing! I feel your pain.

Florida! Ugh. God Bless Mr. Carrier! πŸ˜€

Hey, shouldn't you be working today? Books don't write themselves, you know! Just kiddingβ€”I LOVE your work!

It WAS a gorgeous Maine day to be out and about.

I say this with great affection. Your wife is a saint. And Collared is right here on my nightstand.

You must love the change of seasons on this coast. Fall is the best. Love your housemates.

Reading you book Collared. U r the best

Living on a mountain in North GA gives up a nice view, but heat, humidity, ticks, skeeters from hell, high power bills has us looking forward to Football, not because we are big fans but because it means cooler weather. We have a stock tub as a pool for the dogs. My aussie puppy loves it even gets in in winter.

I'm sitting on my front porch in PG, CA reading "Collared" while enjoying a beer. Oh - and my half dachshund/half Labrador is on my lap.

man up dude....I miss the summer fog of Pacific Grove, a lot. and you can keep ticks. I do not miss termites (every time I see wood stacked against a house here I think termites!!!)

Is this a picture of where the turtle is lurking? You do know they climb trees and then drop on you, don't you?

Sitting on my deck in central VT. Loving the cool temps. How do you keep your property protected from bear. Or do the dogs do the trick?

Which college team do you root for?

We like summer for the camping... With central air and a fireplace... Ya never know what you'll get in Western New York.

Went to Redskins training camp yesterday.

I have Collared reserved at my local library. Worth waiting my turn! Enjoy your family, doggies & view! If you're ever in Ft. Lauderdale, stop by the Humane Society of Broward County. Ask for me, I work there. πŸ™‚

Wow. That looks like my parents front yard in Maine

You're a fragile little flower aren't you! That's OK, me too. PS Go Buckeyes!

Nice πŸ‘

Could not agree more! I spent this beautiful day sitting on the patio reading Open and Shut! Have u heard of it? πŸ™‚

A chilly, windy August day in Western Maine!

not a bad view at all

You do know killer turtles are airborne qualified...

I agree with you 100% except down here we have to worry about copperheads also. It's a beautiful view that you have.

To those of you showering me with well-deserved praise for my heroism during what historians will come to call The Great Turtle Invasion of 2017...there comes a time when you have to stare danger in the face and say, "Not today, turtle. Not on my watch." ...

Comment on Facebook

You crack me up!

Not my circus..not my turtles

Tortoise.... not turtle. Different beast

You scared her away

Well done!

Well done!

Thank you, thank you, thank you for the laughs.

Good for you. By the way if you have still decided to sell I offer two turtles!

I'm just so proud of you!

Your property is probably in her path to where she needs to go to lay her eggs.πŸ’πŸ’•

I knew you could do it!

Wonder where she laid her eggs. This is not over. Cue the scary music.

Marcus came to the rescue without you knowing.

And when the eggs hatch, there will be hundreds of scratching noises made around the outside of the house demanding revenge for the demise of their mother.....

Just pretend it's a dog in a shell costume. πŸ•πŸ’

We really appreciate your bravery.

He shall not pass....

Truly a life changing experience!

Didja have your hat on??

Oh-oh. I think I saw the movie "Revenge of the Killer Turtles." Beware!

You make us all proud! πŸ˜‰

True hero πŸ™‚

And, uh, did you?

Punky here: can I come walk with Tara & Sebastian & Ricky? Mama stayed up late last night reading & she's been reading almost all day & I didn't get a walk - she says the book's about Tara & Sebastian & they get lotsa walks - and she says you wrote it & it's called 'Collared' & it's even better than the last one - so don't write another book for a few weeks so Mama will walk with me - okay? thanks - love, Punky

Lost in the horror of the turtle invasion yesterday was the incredible courage I displayed in meeting the threat head on. If not for my standing twenty feet away from it with a broomstick, using my most menacing glare, the loss of life and property could have been tremendous. It was reminiscent of another David...David Crockett...at the Alamo. ...

Comment on Facebook

I know someone who has rescued several dogs. And several turtles. And other animals. (She has numbered the turtles in order to keep track of them )One of her rescue dogs like to pick them up and carry it around ( gently). I think it's hilarious! I love turtles, btw.

Your fans are in awe!

And dogs, cats and etc, of course...

Oh David, what would we all do without your sense of humor😜

You da MAN !!

there's the content of your next book - the mystery of the snapping turtle - πŸ™‚

I stand in awe.

I hope said turtle at least makes an appearance in your next book...

As I recall, things didn't end well at the Alamo.

I bow to you, fierce warrior.

Should we expect to see a coon skin hat any time soon, Davey?

You did good!

Or the infamous Chicken Rosenfelt.

Just like Andy. Very impressive!

David, we love your sense of humor!

My daughter responded to a 911 call. You guessed it, a snapping turtle. She doesn't live in Maine!

I imagine all your puppies lined up to kiss you goodbye on your way to combat. So brave

I stand here, speechless, at your courage.

My dogs will go nowhere near a snapper. Actually, I won't either. Let them glare at me all they want, I just keep my distance and go on with my business.

πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

Wow, your strength of will and fortitude in facing this crisis are to be admired by all.

Ha!

I learned my lesson. Them things is fierce…

MY HERO.....swoon.....sigh....

yeah, and look what happened to ole Davy, of the coonskin hat.....just sayin....

Our landscaper couldn't find the turtle...so we obviously have to put our house up for sale. We'll accept any offer. ...

Comment on Facebook

It's there.....waiting.....waiting.....waiting.....

Does this mean another Winnebago road trip?

$5.oo

Does it come with dogs?

It probably went back from whence it came. πŸ™‚

My Jack Russells visited a friend who has dozens of small turtles in his backyard..they love to run around flipping them over. Maybe you can organize your pack of 25? to surround it & do the same.

I'll pay anything if the house includes all the dogs. 😊

Oh for heaven's sake, pick up the damned turtle!

Mr. Rosenfelt. I'll take your house off of you for a price you wouldn't believe. You give me your house and I will give you a copy of "Collared" by David Rosenfelt. I assume it's a done deal?

Send Marcus in!

I can send you my father's recipe for turtle soup if you wish.

Probably out laying eggs and will be back in force.

check under the bed

The turtle will go on its way. We've had one meandering around for years. My theory is that it lays its eggs in our little pond. That's probably what your turtle is doing.

They need water.

I mentioned to my husband a snapping turtle was one thing he didn't have to deal with when we had country property. He said he would have preferred the turtle to rattle snakes. Do you feel better now πŸ˜‰

I'll take it!

I'd take that turtle over all the skunk here. LOL

How do you lose a huge turtle?

Calling Marcus...........

Too bad Marcus is a fictional character! Stay strong!

Inc. dogs? Priceless

Run for the hills! Sounds like this could be a great chapter in a book!

be afraid, be very afraid

We have a snapping turtle the size of a small dinosaur trying to get on to the property, and the dogs are going absolutely nuts. Since I am scared to death of it, our landscaper is coming at 6 PM to deal with it.

He has now walked away a bit, so I've constructed a fence to try and keep him from being in the area close to the house. I am inside, getting ready to hide under the bed.

Pray for us.

They are nasty buggers - stay clear!

I will send Willow over...

Prayers!!!

That's a big turtle.

He's just lost, poor guy. Time to relocate!

Dont let the landscaper kill him! Please be sure he gets relocated.

Now in the hour of your death??? That aside...LOL, you don't want your dogs to mess with that guy.

Use your inside time to write another book!!

On top of the bed would be better. He could get you under it!

That snapper could put a major hurt on a dog's nose or mouth. Hopefully it can be relocated to a more remote area.

consider it done

He is looking for friends to help him! Don't be afraid - they are very docile and no doubt older than you so show some respect. 😍🐒

An idea for the next book?

He is probably hungry and lost. You should call animal control.

Here's a little video a friend of mine took of her tortoise climbing a fence. Just to make you feel a little less safe. www.facebook.com/100008227662851/videos/1448188098798765/

We occassionally get a snaper in Wisconsin. We live on a sandy island in the Mississippi River. They come up to lay their eggs. One guy had a huge spiked tail! Yikes!

Fearless guy trying to go on your property with all of your dogs. You are smart to be afraid πŸ™‚

Just have the landscaper relocate.

DO NOT dangle anything over the edge of the bed.

You should just run, take the dogs and run for your life.

Wow, thank God for brave landscapers. Maybe arm yourself with a rolled up newspaper. Not to defend yourself from the turtle, but to wave frantically around your head as you run away screaming when it gives you the evil eye. Good luck. I hope to see a new post soon to let us know you've survived your traumatic incident.

You don't want to mess with it. I grew up in central Wisconsin and they could easily snap a finger. Maybe how they got their name.

That is a big one!

It's most likely a female trying to lay he eggs.She will leave when done .In most states they are protected.They are not looking to cause a problem.She will be gone later and all will be ok.

We have small friendly turtles here in Charleston, SC. My Golden's just stand there at the fence and watch them....

Every afternoon I do a short reading at home…mostly the classics…Tolstoy, Dostoevsky, Rosenfelt, Faulkner. Today I chose a section from β€˜Collared’, by David Rosenfelt. It was a poignant chapter, which is why Cody, the golden in the center, has an anguished expression. By the time I finished, there wasn’t a dry eye in the room. ...

could they have been thinking "cookie"? By the way, Collared was great!

It's really feeding time, isn't it? 😊

It was the delivery that did it.

Do I see a Chessie?πŸ’Ÿ

That's what I was reading to ours too. You know it's good when even the beagles are paying attention!

I needed that chuckle...

my mama used to read to my big bro Morgan before he crossed the rainbow bridge - he loved to hear about Tara - love, Punky

Raven wants to be included for the next reading.

Such a hoot!!!πŸ˜‚

I love the way you write.

My girl Jasmine says she wants me to read to her too. Look what you started.

Probably wasn't a dry nose in the house either.

I am about half way through Collared. I really enjoy your books David.

You crack me up! πŸ™‚ <3

There were also refreshments served.

Just Finished YOUR NEW BOOK....and again tough book to put down...!

Love your books.

Yes Rosenfelt think I read him in my great works of American Liturature class

That is a book club I would love to join! So sweet!

They started it last night. In a huge storm!

Listening to "Collared" right now!

Mine have it as their bedtime read!!

Finished Collared damn !! Why can't I make a book of yours last at least 3 days πŸ™„

Just finished the book...once again I was not disappointed...a good read!!!

Just in time for "les vacances" !! πŸ˜€

you're kidding me! hadn't heard πŸ˜‰

I have it in my paws right now! Yay!

My local library system has 7 copies in processing. I have a hold on one of those copies. I hope to get it this evening. I love public libraries.

thank you for mentioning it....I might have missed it!

I love the cover and I have the book on order. Everybody loves Andy Carpenter.

I'll be downloading from Audible on the 29th when I get my credits!

Just picked mine up at my library!!

I don't even have to read it (but I will) to know I'll love it...each Andy Carpenter is better than the last..

Can't wait! 🐢

I do wish you'd mentioned it sooner.

I'm sure the written pages will be as good as the front cover.

Got it today! I'm embarrassed to admit I'm excited.

Cannot wait!!!!!!!!!!!!

Started reading it last night. Can't wait to get back to it!

Loved it - and posted a review on Amazon today for #ReviewsDay

I am a cataloger in a library and made sure my favorite patron, Ms Margaret, got her copy. She was waiting outside the door when we opened. I get to read it next because my copy should be at my house when I get home!

OH YAY!!

I already started reading it and lovin it!

Mine hasn't arrived yet, but I know it's awesome! Possibly the BEST Andy Carpenter mystery to date!!

I started it this morning. So far it is very good.

Now if only I could get the excellent audio of it here in NZ! Drives me crazy that I can't and now I need to somehow find a way to get it! *cry* Not fair!

Loving it!!

Your posts are sooo funny. Love your books. (:

Good Afternoon! I logged on here for the first time just to let you know how much I have enjoyed the first fifteen books in the Andy Carpenter series and to let you know that I agree with the opinion or Laurie Collins Carpenter in "The Twelve Dogs of Christmas" that David Rosenfelt is one of the great writers of our time. Imagine my delight at seeing that the next book in the series is being released today! Yippee and Thank You.

Well, I warned you. Here are typical lines forming at bookstores for the release tomorrow of "Collared". My suggestion would be that you buy multiple copies...you don't want to have to stand on these lines more than once. ...

Well on the bright side it'd be fun to talk to fellow fans of yours! However I pre-ordered for my Nook. Will you be making any appearances in FL to promote your new book?

Nah. That's fake news. All your fans would have their dogs with them. 😁

That's me in the blue shirt

Funny. Your postings are as great as your books!

that's me in the jeans

I think those pics were taken by a Trump photog with an "ebullient" lens.

How many ( geographically) say 'on line' 'in line' or ' in a line' or even 'in a queue'? Is this like pop/ soda , hoagie/sub/hero? However do non native English speakers manage?

Damn ! I should've listened πŸ™ƒ

LOL

Thankfully, I pre-ordered it!

I'm glad I ordered mine online πŸ˜‰

Can't wait until tomorrow!

Yay! Something fun to read very soon!!

More people need your sense of humour. I'm still wading through your old books, it all started with, " Lessons from Tara".

Thx for keeping me entertained lol

Visual study of demographic profile of your fans is fascinating.

Mine,s preordered

Will water and cookies be server to all of us in line? πŸ™‚

More than attended Trump' s inauguration!!!

Discounts for a case?

Thank goodness I pre ordered it about 4 years ago, so I can sit at home and wait for it to appear on my porch! 🀣

From the looks of those people they have been waiting for a long time considering they have their coats on.

Just ordered my today! However, I went Audible since I spend a lot of time in the car. Love Grover Gardner. Been a fan of your books and rescue for many years! FOR THE STREET DOGS!!

I am certainly thankful that I had the foresight to preorder a copy! Standing in long lines is not my ideal way to spend an afternoon or three...

Glad I preordered.

NIGHTMARE WARNING: That moment when you realize that you are the only person at the cocktail party who has not read "Collared". After ten minutes of ridicule and humiliation, you slink off like the pathetic loser that you are. YOU CAN PREVENT THIS...ORDER THE DAMN BOOK. ...

Comment on Facebook

Done and done. πŸ‘

Ordered

I'm getting to where I almost enjoy your pre-release "encouragement" as much as I do your books!

I'm more of a bookstore kind of girl.. but fear not-- it will be purchased as soon as it arrives at my local Barnes and Noble! πŸ™‚

I can't believe there is someone like that out there!

You should be writing your next book. By the time I finish this one, I want to see the next one "ready to go." I can't wait this long between books.

I would take it to the party with me. If it's not available yet I would take any previous Andy Carpenter book. Thank you for your terrific stories.

I have my audible pre ordered! πŸ’—

I did! Thank you Amazon!

You are so subtle...

This horribly embarrassing scenario will NEVER happen to MEEEE!!

I don't go to cocktail parties

OK, I'll preorder. πŸ˜€ Thanks for caring for your dog army!

Don't worry, Andy is always on the list...

Love your books. Write faster.

I pre-ordered it months ago. I don't want to risk ridicule and humiliation. (Besides, I ❀️ Andy Carpenter

Ordered!!! Wouldn't miss it!!!

I never go to cocktail parties but I'm sure if I did, if they still exist, I would read my copy first.

Reading on lunch so I can catch up to "Collard".

Pre ordered a while back. Can't wait !!!!

I just ordered the damn book David Rosenfelt.

I'm safe

I will but I prefer the audible version with Grover Gardner narrating.

Do you get numbers of pre sales?

With all that is going on in the world, I've decided not to do a post today about the upcoming July 18th release of the new Andy Carpenter book, "Collared". In these perilous times, the last thing you need to be focused on is the fact that it can be pre-ordered now, with operators on call 24 hours a day. ...

Comment on Facebook

Great day for a release--my mom's birthday!

Looking forward to it thanks

Looking forward to it. ❀️

You're right, Mr. Rosenfelt. With all that is going on in the world, I've decided not to obsess about next Tuesday's release of the new Andy Carpenter book, "Collared". In these perilous times, the last thing I need to be thinking about is the fact that since I got paid today, I could pre-order it...hmmm.

Maybe it is exactly what we need.

Ok that is very patriotic of you!

LOL I'm loving these posts!

I love sensitive men. πŸ˜‰

But...... If we were not focusing on the upcoming July 18th release of the new Andy Carpenter book, "Collared" and the fact that it can be pre-ordered now, with operators on call 24 hours a day, we would have to focus on the real world issues that NO one wants to focus on. I would much rather focus on the fact that the upcoming July 18th release of the new Andy Carpenter book, "Collared" can be pre-ordered now, with operators on call 24 hours a day. πŸ˜‰

Love your shameless non-plugs! Can't wait for 7/18!

SHAMELESS!! But so funny! πŸ˜‰

Just discovered you. Reading a "non-dog" book at the moment.

I just love you!

So thoughtful, David. You are the best. lol

You are so considerate!

Alice: Look into my eyes and watch me fall asleep.

So relieved I already have my copy on order. Now I can focus on how man-days are left til it arrives instead.

You are too cute!

Toven cannot wait to read it!!

You are way too modest πŸ™‚

So true! Thank you for that gesture. Ha ha. Love your books and have read them all.

Very kind of you to think of the rest of us

You are a good man Mr. Rosenfelt! 😁

Love reading your Andy Carpenter books, just finished reading The Twelve Dogs of Christmas, excellent. Looking forward to reading Collared.
