Nine books and eleven authors–including me!– will be featured for the first time at a special session of the Texas Archeological Society Annual Meeting, October 25, 2014, in San Marcos, Texas. As the only novel among the other non-fiction works, my book is a little different from the usual academic books found at the conference. I’m proud to be included in the group, and grateful for the opportunity. But I will have a bit of explaining to do.
Texas Archeological Society Book Festival Saturday, October 25, 2014 Embassy Suites San Marcos - Hotel, Spa & Conference Center 1001 E. McCarty Lane, San Marcos, Texas, 78666, USA TEL: +1-512-392-6450 FAX: 1-512-392-6451 Sponsored by “Support Texas Archeology and History Research” (S.T.A.H.R.)
Like how mine is FICTION. That means not everything that’s in it really happened in the way portrayed. And things didn’t happen as fast as the book implies. And I might have streteched a few things, even. Like the part about the bees. The hero of the book, Deer Cloud, steals honeycomb from wild bees in one scene, and gets stung. In reality, if there were bees along the Rio Grande 4,000 years ago, they were probably a mild stingless variety of Melliponi bee. But getting stung made a better story.
