Kathie Bennett, my publicist, called today with the fantastic news that Swimming with Serpents has been selected as the March bonus book for the Pulpwood Queens Book Club which numbers over 500 clubs throughout the country. What an honor! Thanks to Kathy Patrick, the founder of the Pulpwood Queens (http://www.pulpwoodqueen.com/)!

I think everyone enjoyed themselves at the event. I know I did! I discovered quite a few folks who are related to the Creek Indians who were inside Fort Mims at the time of the battle as well as the Red Sticks. The battle at Fort Mims is the pivotal event of my novel. Swimming with Serpents is based on the lives of those people who actually lived during that turbulent time and is told from the Native American perspective of the Creek War.
Next weekend we go to the Florida Chatauqua Assembly in DeFuniak Springs where Rosalind Carter will be the keynote speaker. I will be speaking on Saturday at 1:00 in the Library and hope to see old friends and make new ones there. (http://www.florida-chautauqua-center.org/)
