The Book Signing at Barnes & Noble

My first book signing event is slated for this coming Saturday, August 17th at Barnes & Noble in Austin, Texas. This happens to be the same Barnes & Noble (see directions below) that my late mother, author, and great granddaughter of the Old West outlaw Jesse James, Betty Dorsett Duke, had her first book signing at, which makes it all the more special to me. If you're in the area, please stop by and I will be more than happy to sign a copy of my book, 'Jesse James and the Lost Templar Treasure' for you.
