Bouchercon, Mon Amour
Bouchercon 2010 in San Francisco just wrapped up. I am already pining for Bouchercon 2011 in St. Louis. Do yourself a favor and register now. Why? Because you’ll get to spend four days with a crowd of people who love books as much as you do. Because you’ll get to meet friends you only know online (in my case, that included Chuck Wendig and Dan O’Shea, pictured with me and the lovely Michelle Wendig). Because you’ll attend panels and parties and dinners. Because you’ll meet writers who make your heart beat like a tom-tom (in my case, Denise Mina). And because you’ll end up hanging out with a group of wonderful friends late into the night and beyond.
