Thanks so much for the review of my novel Aloha, Lady Blue. [“Hardbitten Hawaii,” Nov. 7] The release date is Jan. 22, 2013 . . . with the sequel in 2014. It already is online at [Amazon.com] and other book sites and, curiously, at [Overstock.com], which is weird since it’s not even out yet. It’s all good!
