Authors Guild of Tennessee is a group of about fifty published authors who live in East Tennessee. Many of our stories are set in this area, reflecting either its present-day culture or its history.
Click on any book to link to the Amazon listing for description, price, and reviews. Click on the author names for brief biographies and other information.
Mission Statement: To celebrate Tennessee’s rich literary tradition through opportunities for people to get to know authors more personally, discover details about their books, and find inspiration through their challenges and successes, which ultimately strengthens a desire to read while also serving as a vital catalyst for our authors to continue writing and selling their books.
Coronavirus Effects on Authors Guild Activities
Due to the recommendations of the CDC regarding social distancing, the Authors Guild of Tennessee will not meet in April. A May meeting has not been scheduled at this time.
Although we planned to participate in the outdoor markets for the Knoxville Dogwood Festival and the Oak Ridge Lavender Festival, both events have been canceled.
We will resume meetings and our participation in festivals as soon as the CDC revises its protocols to allow for group activities.
