When Duty Calls…

My apologies to anyone disappointed by my absence from the scheduled book reading on Friday night in Bristol. Below is the letter I dispatched with one of my associates.


Bare Bones
156 School Street
Bristol, CT 06010

May 17, 2013

Dear Sir or Madam:

My name is Kenneth Snipps and I need your help.

On May 7th, I made a commitment to appear at the Summer Open Mic Series at The American Clock & Watch Museum, to read from my upcoming book.

I regret to inform you I will be unable to attend the event because my friend Toby and I are currently tubing down the Pequabuck River in pursuit of the Forestville Sasquatch – unless it turns out to be Barbara Deavers’ sheep dog again.

At any rate, because I take my commitments seriously, I have asked someone to fill-in for me at the event. Please, if possible allow for him/her/them (I haven’t figured out who is covering for me yet, but you will know because he/she/they are currently standing in front of you).

I hope you will not be mad at me about this. I promise to make it up to you by bringing over cookies the next time I bake some.

Thank you for reading my letter.

Your friend,


Kenneth Snipps
