Wednesday will bring the New Orleans unveiling of Katrina's Secrets, with a "morning press briefing" (time and place TBA) at which copies of the book will be distributed, as well as a signing that evening at the Ashe Cultural Arts Center from 6 to 9 pm.
The book, which is self-published by CreateSpace and sold by Amazon, is available for pre-purchase here for $17.99; a Kindle edition is reportedly on the way.
