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 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.

Got it!

Need an Andy book with a pug...very smart, manipulative. Actually you need a pug to manage your pack at home.

LOL

Thank you David! I trust everything you say!!!!!

Funny!

Very funny

But make sure you do accept his friend request. Just get the book.

WARNING. A good friend who is a former sheriff warns about accepting messages from a Hayden Smith.

Hoax

πŸ˜…

He's everywhere!

I already did!

you got it David Rosenfelt

Jane Douglas ha!

As you wish!

Lol

Is that your alias?

This FB hoax currently being passed around could be a plot point for Andy. It shows how people are willy nilly posting without checking for...wait for it...facts. it would cause gulibiliy, loss of pensions, kidnapping, and murder. You can dedicate the book to me. 🀣

Cheryl Hyland McElroy

Rosenfelt's so smart.

He ahh contacted my dogs on Sunday. They ordered for me!

David Rosenfelt you are shameless!! One of the things that makes you so interesting! LOL

Hillary Clinton called me about it! Only robo call I've not hung up on.

Knew there had to be a legitimate reason. πŸ˜€πŸΆ

Comment on Facebook

Love your books! I'm a huge fan of Andy Carpenter.

Bear has a pink collar on, is Bear a girl?

Bear looks very happy and comfortable with the bed! What a gorgeous Bear! I am going to Barnes and Noble today to order! I love your books!

This post may require a follow-up once Bear has a new Collar, just to clear up any misunderstandings that this current post has anything to do with a book called Collared.

🐾🐾❀️

Such a gentle albeit drooling, breed. Get out the cloths to wipe down the Walls after he shakes his head!

Such a lucky boy! And he has his own tablet- is he writing your next book?

Does your Pyr have a hot spot going n his right leg? The humidity this summer in Maine is bothering my Inga

Already pre-ordered.

Who is Bear's bed mate looking so lovely?

I want your life!

Good looking group ~ already pre-ordered the book.....:)

A shameless plug.. Bear, I think you hit the jackpot!

Gotta tell you, David, not only are your books as delightful as a 32-scoop sundae with whipped cream, nuts, sprinkles, AND nice big cherry on top, but your FB posts are the best possible examples of how to self-promote without making your readers question your skills as a writer...classy work, sir!

Ever need a sitter...I would gladly drive to Maine to do the job...I am in CT...pretty close...and have a rescue from Angela Meek whose rescue you did a book signing at...3 Girls Rescue...great references...just saying...

I pre-ordered mine this morning. πŸ™‚

Already preordered! Love the family photographs!

What? No Newfoundlands? They would make a great story!!

I also have a rescue Bear who loves to collar the center of the bed. He has a purple collar not to be confused with your Bear's pink collar which has nothing to do with any collar on the market of any colored collar ....or anything to do with the release of any collared book that perhaps will be collaring the market for book releases on the 18th. So, Mr. Rosenfelt, have I sufficiently collared thIs page with any unofficial mentions of your new book..is it named Collared? How many times can you reference Collared without shamelessly promoting your new book release? I Dont Think You Can Do It! I Challenge You To Do It.

Aww love your compassion

David Rosenfelt I <3 reading all of your books, just finished reading the "12 dogs of Christmas" πŸ™‚

He's got the best spot, bum on a pillow. BTW are any new Andy Carpenters coming out soon? I'd love to pre-order one. lol.

Do you still have Wanda?

Is it about "collard greens" ? Love Andy Carpenter, looking forward to all of your books.

I think you and Debbie are going to need a bigger bed πŸ˜‰

Can't wait!

One of life's great disappointments is finding a new author.....and getting to his/her last book, then having to wait 8 months for the next one! I'm really looking forward to the next chapter in the series!

Preordered!!!

Anxiously awaiting publication

Feel free to carry on, love things to look forward to!

You go David!!!

Requested our library order it so it has been ordered and I am first on the list. Keep writing David and hug all your fur babies.

Can't wait.

Love your book covers. Dog faces have great expression.

I'll be counting down the days

Anne Morrissey Watson

Ready!!!

Greens? With smoked ham? πŸ˜‰

I just discovered Andy Carpenter,and I am way excited! Promote away and I will put it on my FB page.

Ordered the audiobook.

c.o.u.n.t.d.o.w.n. - mama says my doggy pal Tara's gonna be in a new story - yay! - love, punky (the spunky senior cocker rescue)

Your self promotion is shameless. Keep it up.

Love this cover, David. Can't wait to meet these two pups ❀🐢🐾

I wish you could write 'em as fast as I can read 'em!

I can't wait TOO!

Preordered ages ago. Anxious for the arrival. Love your books.

Also looking forward to it, since I'm all caught up.

Please do, for I am one of your older readers & I need reminders! Won't remember by July 18th! LOL

Thanks, David! I don't want to get in that mob again.

So thoughtful!!

Just got out after serving nine months due to that riot. Glad I had my copy while I was inβ€”definitively gave me some cred.

I was killed in the rush last time so will be unable to read the next one.

The Declaration of Independence was written 241 years ago today. The first Andy Carpenter book was published exactly 226 years, 10 months and 5 days later. Coincidence? I think not. ...

Comment on Facebook

Happy Independence day ! May the weather be lovely and the fireworks silent.

May the 4th be with you!

Ahhh yes, I noticed the similarities immediately.

Some of us don't believe in coincidences so of course we noticed.

Lol!

Yea but one talks of dogs! The other maybe like...oh bankers?

πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

That makes you very old!

You are so nutty!πŸ’™πŸ’šπŸ’›πŸ’œπŸ’–β€

You are one funny guy.

Oh my gosh, I never realized that! That is unbelievable!

Enjoy your 4th of July πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

Patiently waiting for the next one. Happy 4th!!

Just love the books

Actually, it wasn't. It was written on July 2 and approved by Congress on the fourth. Not sure if that helps or hinders your coincidence.

You've aged well.

Happy Fourth. When is your new book out?

You brighten my fourth of July.

LOVE IT! Just finishing your book Dogtripping~~enjoy the pics of the trip (esp. the dogs) but why was there no pic of sweet Debby? WAs she kept that busy that no time to pose? Also enjoy your Andy Carpenter mysteries~~was glad to know that the fictional Tara will never die! Hope everyone in Maine is in good health & prosperity! Happy 4th!

Dogtripping - One of my most favorite books!

I adore your humor ❀️

Lol, your posts make my day!

I love those books. Keep them coming.

OMG!

You are so funny! And what you do for dogs - OMG - fantastic!

Awwww please give Bear a big hug and a kiss from me and my golden and wishing all the best in his new home with his new.buddies <3 xoxo!

What a bunch of lucky dogs 😊

All dogs are perfect!

Thank you David & Debbie!!! Still wish you were in OC so I could visit!!!

That's one lucky Bear! Welcome to your new home!

Thanks for sharing!

I'm surprised there's still room for people!

Happy dogπŸ™‚ How many brothers and sisters does he have now?

Do the first few minutes always go well???

I love how you and your wife take in these rescues and make them family. I really enjoyed your book about the trip across the country with the gang. It takes special people to be so committed πŸ’œ

wow you have a lot of doggies!

what a great looking group! thanks for helping them <3

I want to live at your house.

They are such good dogs, so laid-back! You hit the jackpot Bear, you are a lucky dog! Thank you David and Debbie! You are awesome people!

With so many rescues, have you ever had some of the dogs with the same name?

You are wonderful!!!

Oh Bear!!!! We miss you and know you just found the best home we could have ever asked for. Be happy Bear, you deserve it. You've earned it! We will love you forever! ❀

Is that Ralph laying on the floor?!?

What do you do if one doesn't get along?

All dogs are perfect, right? LOL. You guys rock bringing dogs in need into your home! Thank you.

how many dogs do you have now? p.s. thank you for your books and for everything you do for dogs.

He must be wondering when he will get his shaggy fur coat that obviously was issued to all the others.

Maggie (my golden) and I would love to come work and help you and your wife with your truly special family. Lots of admiration coming your way!!!

He is certainly being checked out and, I hope, accepted.

My question, too, is what is your current count of furry family members?

I totally understand why so many people love fireworks. Sure, there are slight negatives…they petrify poor animals, they open emotional wounds in vets suffering from PTSD, and they maim and even kill many people every year. But all of that pales next to the incredible joy of hearing very loud noise. ...

Comment on Facebook

Sounds like a rough next few days at your place😞

I know. Don't quite get it.

Pets are hiding already.

My question is: Why are you guys up so early on Sunday morning sitting at your computer? I thought I was the only one.

If other countries can look at silent fireworks, we should be too.

Totally agree! Even as a kid, I hated fireworks! Now I live with pets and a Vietnam vet, hate them more!

Waste of money.

I. hate. fire. works.

more dogs go missing on July 4 than any other day

I completely agree! Nothing like having them just a few houses away from your house, either. So glad they are illegal in my state. Haha.

I am so with you! I admit, when I was young, I loved them. That was before awareness set in that animals and some humans do not love them. We didn't have pets in our house when we were children. It was also before they became available to anyone. There have been years when our neighborhood was thundering and exploding for hours. The next day meant picking up debris from my yard, and looking for damage. My last dog had Addison's disease, and the stress from ongoing, days or weeks long explosions was very hard on him, and for me. He's at the bridge now, waiting for me. I miss him every day. I stay home with my dog and kitties, and we hunker down in my bedroom with the tv and ample treats.

I know what I'm going through with my one dog. I can't imagine what it's like at your house!

U have to bring my golden to my mother's condo and hide down in the basement in the bathtub till Thurs/Friday wen it's safe to come out. Getting ready to play some nice soothing, relaxing Stevie Nicks, Adele, Bonnie Raitt and of course my Allman Brothers which my Bella enjoys...Wishing all our 4-legged fur babies a safe 4th of July. I know this is the WORST day in the entire year for my Golden Retriever. Please be safe and comfort your dog, they need us during the 4th

*I have

Love your wit Mr. Rosenfeld

My Molly during the fireworks that started near my house at 5:30 am!

I agree. Last year I know of a senior dog who died of fright in her owner's arms, days AFTER the Fourth of July because neighbors continued to set off firecrackers for hours on end.

Don't like them, don't want them, won't go.

Hate them. The problem is the fws happen days before and after the 4th. Neighbors banging away. And it seems like every holiday must have fws now.

Not a fan of fireworks at all

Not a fan too damgerous

Amen.

And add to air pollution...

So agree. My sweet Breezy needs to be driven up and down major highway . I do this since he shakes badly and since i love him, why not!
