Thanks, but I just don't think I'm going to get a chance to get down there. My schedule is pretty tight at this point. Maybe sometime on my next trip to Illinois though. I do like getting around to as many bookstores as possible.
Thanks for the reply. You will not belive this but I received an email from HIM - yes, James Lee Burke asking me to bring him a copy of his book when he gets back to New Iberia from Montana...yes, I'm sooooo nervous. And Alafair is a lovely young woman.
Thanks for inviting me. Yes, I understand about your daughter's situation for sure! My sister lives in Intracoastal City down by the wetlands and she lost her home. My bother is in NOLA and my parents in Lafayette. When Katrina struck of was up in the Applachian Mountains working on The Beatitudes. So, that's why I'm donating all royalties to the NOLA Library Foundation. The book became available this past Tuesay!!! At Amazon.com, search books , Lyn LeJeune, The Beatitudes. Best get the paperback if you are interested. And plaes do pass the word around.
Sorry about the delay with the book. I checked with the folks at Writers Digest Books again yesterday and they assured me that everything was on time on their end. There was a larger demand for the book than originally thought (that's a good thing I suppose) so it'll just a take a week or two to iron things out. Hopefully... Again, sorry for the delay.
I have thought about it, but I usually attend Left Coast Crime right around the same time and I can't usually manage to attend more than two or three a year - Bouchercon is also always on the list. I hope to get a chance one of these days. My sister lives in Chicago so I always enjoy visiting in any event.
I forgot to ask - Bleak House's publicist is currently hunting for venues for a couple of signings in Chicago. I can't recall which B&N you're at. Do you think your place would be good for a signing? Thanks.
Hi Maryann, Thanks. I'm really happy with the new book, and with Bleak House, the new publisher. I will be in Chicago on Wednesday and Thursday October 24-25. Welcome to this thing, it seems like its getting to be pretty useful - and fun.
