Allison: You should call the Library in Slidell, I am sure you can get a Library card there. I live in N.O. but got my Library card in Metaire, Jefferson Parish. I also, have a N.O. Library card, but the Jefferson Parish Libraries seem to have a much larger selection of eBooks. It's worth it because you get the books free, can keep books for 21 days, and you only enter your Library card number to download books. I have borrowed several, and they appear in your Kindle Library on Amazon and you just click "Return to Library" when you are finished with the book. I can borrow 10 books at a time. You can also subscribe to and and receive daily email list of FREE books.

This is probably a stupid question, but here goes : I too am NOLA born & raised, but living in the Picayune, MS area. I have a newish Kindle Fire.Can you get a library card via the Internet? It doesn't appear my local library has Kindle borrowing ability, so I'm just wondering if I can belong to and borrow from another library? I appreciate the local talent/ writer's info! Thanks posters!

CCH: Thanks for asking. I have two short stories available on Kindle for $.99 each; both stories feature the protagonist from BARONNE STRRET.

The first is ASH WEDNESDAY, which is a re-telling of Cinderella. Two versions are bundled together. One version appeared in the anthology "Erotic New Orleans" and is rated NC-7. The other version appeared in Thrilling Detective magazine and is safe enough to use as a bedtime story.

The other is PRICE TAG ATTACHED; it is a collaboration between O.Neil De Noux and I; it originally appeared in in Alfred Hitchcock Mystery magazine.

Thanks Ava. I did a Google search and found very similar instructions. I don't have any books that I am willing to destroy right now, so I will stick with the 2 covers and neoprene sleeve that I have. It is very original though. May be a future project for me. Thanks again for the info.

It turned out okay. I just put in kindle case diy in the search engine and came up with a bunch of options. I ended up using an old book from my office (1969), hollowed it out and followed the instructions (glue and water to the pages to make it hard). Then I took some fabric and glued it to a book (btw, I used a hard cover book), and put a piece of elastic on it to make sure it stays shut. It works for me and people are impressed with it. There are instructions for sewing a cover and making a faux leather one which will be my next option. If I am allowed to put the links on here I will. It was fun and very easy to do. I like what I have.

Ava: That sounds pretty neat. Where did you find the instructions? How did it turn out?

In reply to an earlier post on Apr 7, 2012 10:05:10 AM PDT
Kent thank you, I will find the book and buy it. CCH, no offense but I have been set off buy the price of the case, so I made my own with a real book and instructions on the internet.

Kate: I recently purchased Bloody Murder, have it in my Kindle Library. Plan to read it next. I enjoy reading books that take place in New Orleans or surrounding Parishes, specifically Mystery/Thriller, Suspense, and Legal Thrillers.

My novel BARONNE STREET is set in New Orleans. The Kindle edition is only $2.99.

When an ex-girlfriend is bludgeoned to death, New Orleans fixer Burleigh Drummond must rely on his Machiavellian skills to solve and avenge her murder.

Kate: Actually Hot Blooded is the 1st one and Cold Blooded is the 2nd book of the Series. Both are good, I borrowed them from the Library. Also, check out
Darkness on the Edge of Town (Laura Cardinal Series, Book 1) by J. Carson Black.

CCH, I did read Last Car to Elysian Fields. It was riveting! I'll give Lisa Jackson a try.

Thanks Kate, I love James Lee Burke and I will add this one to my Wish List. Have you read Last Car To Elysian Fields by James Lee Burke?
Also, check out Cold Bloodied by Lisa Jackson another very good New Orleans Mystery/Thriller.

Last Car to Elysian Fields (Dave Robicheaux Mysteries)
