Just a quick note as I prepare for my research trip for the as-yet-unnamed next book. Maelstrom? Floodgates? Crevasses? Nothing's right.
Anyway, five days in New Orleans...what's not to like? And since I tend to eat the entire time I'm there, I'll be able to regale you with every detail of the caloric debauchery I commit while I'm gone. And five days in close proximity to all that history and all those gorgeous buildings would be enough to keep me very happy, even if it wasn't located in the land of crawfish and beignets. (I believe I've even had crawfish beignets. Yum.)
On the way home, I'll do a signing at my hometown library, which is always a fun thing, and some talks at a high school in the Florida Panhandle. Then I'll head home and crash for about 48 hours. And after that, I'll come here and blog about it, so you can all have a vicarious trip to the Big Easy.
L'aissez les bon temps roulez!
