Please check out my blog, www.beatitudesinneworleans.blogspot.com and think about helping in the restoration of public libraries in New Orleans. If you wish, let me know and I will add you as a Beatitude.
My book is complete and I have been looking for a good agent. The proceeds of any profit will go toward New Orleans public libraries. Wish me luck. The title is The Beatitudes and it is book one in The New Orleans Trilogy, based on Dante's Divine Comedy. Book I is pre-Katrina, book II (The Book Burners) and book III (Paradise Possible) are post-Katrina. If anyone would like to read the book, let me know and I will forward some of it to you. Also, see the my blog as I am working on serializing it.
I am presently reading Ken Bruen's book The Dramatist. Great stuff!
