- BOOK STORES: Curran will solicit bookstores throughout Alabama to encourage them to carry the book.
- ON-LINE: Amazon.Com and BarnesandNoble.Com.
"However, until the book becomes, in the publishing parlance, 'live,' it won't be available anywhere or even possible to order, since it won't yet show in booksellers computers as even existing," Curran wrote. "I will announce on the site as soon as it does go 'live.'"
Excerpts from the book are included on Curran's website.
Siegelman had no comment on the book's release.
Curran has been on sabbatical from the Press-Register while working on the book. He has not yet rejoined the newspaper.
