A novel for our times. A saga for the ages.

On the eve of passing landmark immigration legislation, the entire Texas Senate and its native Tejano leader, Diego Reyes, vanish suddenly from Austin. When news of the disappearance hits West Texas, cowboy Del Woodward isn't shocked. He knows exactly where the lawmakers are, but he's not telling. Woody's been down on his luck, and a shady bargain he's made puts him tight in the squeeze of Marcos Cepeda, north Mexico's ruthless drug lord. And Cepeda's furious with this new stall in the bill. It's got a loophole he can exploit to add another quarter million square miles of exclusive turf to his cartel—but that territory goes back up for grabs if leader Reyes can't pass the bill before the Senate session expires in mere days. The brutal kingpin wants what he's bought and compels Woody to step up. How the cowboy swings the vote isn't important to Cepeda, but this sure is: if Woody breathes so much as a word of reluctance, it'll be his last. The prize is Texas, nothing less. It's real, and it's on.

The Republic Series launches from true pages of the Lone Star frontera story into a hauntingly modern arena of trade, trafficking, and tradition on the Rio Grande in To the Republic: BOOK ONE.

An Amazon #1 New Release in History of U.S. Immigration

Sneak Peek & COVER REVEAL of

To the Republic: Book Two

 

THE REPUBLIC SERIES saga continues in Book Two:

 

Carmina Esquivel's workplace accident would surely have driven her deeper into the shadows, but with the remarkable new Texas law now kindling her hope of belonging, Carmina begins a wondrous journey to a place she's seen only in her dreams. Across the state, a world of darker consequences closes in on Del Woodward. The two kings on the Texas chessboard now are avowed enemies of each other, and somehow Woody's managed to owe them both his life. For longtime friend Governor Ben Block, he'd surrender it in a heartbeat—a far cry from cartel kingpin Marcos Cepeda, who'd take it without a second thought. Until a day ago, Cepeda sat peerless among the VIPs out to steer the high-stakes law to their favor, but now the President of the United States has weighed in, and a showdown looms. If the legal longshot succeeds, it will accomplish what no American state has undertaken in nearly two centuries and what only Texas has ever truly achieved.

Bruce Clavey of Round Rock, Texas writes with a passion for exploring the Latin heritage tucked in cultural corners throughout Texas, Mexico, and Central America. In 2017, Clavey's research into perspectives on state history led to his onsite rediscovery of the Mexico City dungeon where the colonial "Father of Texas" was imprisoned, documented in his book "The Inquisition of Stephen F. Austin." His interest to illuminate compelling historic junctures brought the creation of several feature dramatizations for state museum in-exhibit performance. Clavey's release of Book One of The Republic Series in 2020 begins the journey of Texas and Mexican characters who confront the pressure points at today's vibrant river border, a land that has functioned for centuries as both international gateway and barrier.
