Nashville and the Southern Festival of the Book

I am honored to have been invited to participate in Nashville on October 12th as an author at the Southern Festival of the Book to on a panel at the with Skip Tucker, author of Pale Blue Light about Stonewall Jackson. I had the pleasure of meeting Skip at Chautauqua. The Southern Festival of the Book has the reputation of being one of the best book festivals in the country. In 2004 200 authors were in attendance, in addition to nearly 100 publishing and book distributor booths and tranked as one of the US' premier book events. It has only grown since then to be even more highly regarded.

Several authors that I met at other festivals will also be in attendance and I look forward to seeing there including Elizabeth Cox and Michael Curtis, Jackie Cooper, Cassandra King, Maggie Schein, Karen Zacharias, Susan Boyer, Kim Boykin, Clif Graubart, Cynthia Graubart, Nathalie Dupree, artist Jonathan Green, Alison Law, Terra Elan McCoy, Michael Morris, Kathy Patrick, Jackie White, Ron Rash, and Lisa Wingate.

While in Nashville I plan to visit the Hermitage where it is said William Weatherford spent some time following the Creek Indian War after turning himself in to Andrew Jackson at Fort Jackson. It will be interesting to see how well received my novels are in Nashville considering the fact that they pretty much look at the history of that time through a Native American perspective.
