Where to Find Me at Boucheron Toronto

Bouchercon is always a high point of the year for me, but this year it’s going to be extra-special, because my hometown is hosting it. Toronto is an amazing place, and I’m glad so many of my friends and fellow crime-fiction fans will get to see it up close. It hit me today that we’re just a week out, so it’s high time I tell you where to find me at the convention:

Wednesday, October 11th, 9pm: Noir at the Bar, Bouchercon Edition. I’ll be reading with a terrific crew that includes Owen Laukkanen, David Swinson, Eric Beetner, Jamie Mason, Zoë Sharp, Thomas Pluck, MH Callaway, Sheena Kamal, and Scott Adlerberg. The fabulous Tanis Mallow and Rob Brunet will co-host. You don’t need to be registered for Bouchercon to attend — Noir at the Bar is free and open to anyone who can make it to the Rivoli (334 Queen Street West, about a 10-minute walk from the Sheraton). More details here.

Friday, October 13th, 1:30pm-2pm: Signing at the Tor/Forge Hospitality Suite. Do you like free books? Tor/Forge will be giving away some paperback copies of BLOOD ALWAYS TELLS and I’ll be on hand to sign them. If you’ve already read it, just come by to say hello. There are also snacks, prizes, and author bingo, in case you need further inducements…

Friday, October 13th, 3:30pm-4:30pm: “The Canadian Panel.” The topic seems a little random — the convention’s in Toronto, so there will be plenty of Canucks on panels — but with a crew that includes Jennifer Hillier, David Morrell, Ausma Zehanat Khan, Paul E. Hardisty, and moderator Kevin Burton Smith, you know you’re in for a good time. (Sheraton, Grand West room.)

Saturday, October 14th, 7pm-8pm: Passport to Murder Signing. Yes, you’ll be hungry and want to go out to dinner, but come see us first! I’m honored to be part of this year’s Bouchercon anthology, Passport to Murder, which just got a starred review from Publishers Weekly. (My story “Jerusalem Syndrome” got special notice in the review. Can murder be miraculous? You’ll need to read it to find out.) All proceeds go to Frontier College, a national literary organization. (Sheraton, Grand Foyer.)

Here’s hoping I get to see you next week!
