I'm getting close to the end of the book tour for Hell's Bay. Seems like it's been going on for five years, not five weeks. But yesterday in Estero (which is south of Ft. Myers and north of Naples, in an area that is booming), I was the luncheon speaker for a library fund raiser. Another wonderful crowd. And I met some very interesting librarians and friends of the library.

One librarian was kind enough to let me know that she supplies large quantities of my books to local jails and prisons. Apparently I've got a sizable audience in the penal institutions. This is something I've known for a while, but I'm still trying to uncover the reason why. Any ideas?

Here's a short clip of the nice room where our luncheon was held. The Club at Grandeeza.

Dear James,
Great fiction = great escape. Look no further. They like you 'cause you're good.
