I placed my order for the book with Amazon.com. They are promising delivery by the last week of the month (March). We'll see.

Thanks for letting me know. I just talked with a rep. from Arcadia who told me that the chains don't always have the books on the shelves on the release date, that they go through their warehouses and often this takes several weeks (but if I remember correctly, the Lake Pontchartrain book was on shelves on the release date).


I'm sorry I haven't responded sooner. My computer is on the fritz and keeps shutting down.

2:00 pm at Barnes and Noble on Vets. Blvd. (the old Pelican Lanes, if I'm not mistaken).

I'm almost certain there will also be a signing/presentation at Octavia Books but I don't have a date for that yet.

is located at the site of the old Paradise Lanes.
The old Pelican Lanes was at the very end of Veterans and now has a big office building in its spot.
