Book Two has a new name - "Body on the Bayou." I turned in a draft early, but I haven't heard whether or not they're going to move up the publication date. "Plantation Shudders" was published in the book clubs (BOTMC, Literary Guild, etc.) in late April, and then its official pub date was 8/11, although Amazon started sending out pre-orders a couple of weeks prior. I'm meeting with my publisher at the Bouchercon conference and if I get any updates, I'll let you know. And thanks again. I so appreciate your support!(less)
