This showcases a limited number of local authors of various genres, including children's books and inspirational work. In addition to my historical fiction novels, I'll have two folders of antebellum photos. It's a casual setting, like a family get-together.

There's a specific term for the above

structure, which was common in Colonial and Antebellum America, though this is an elaborate interpretation. This photo was taken at the Lexington County Museum, which features numerous early American buildings, including a one-room schoolhouse, cotton gin, and cane press.

Good luck!

If you’re a reader and love books, the 2017 Amelia Island Book Festival in Florida is a great way to spend a February weekend. I will be among a hundred other authors available to sign books and discuss writing. I'll be with the historical fiction writers, but other genres will be represented—action/thriller/mystery, historical fiction, sci-fi, fantasy, and romance.
