Conventional Wisdom

I’m all registered for Thrillerfest and Bouchercon!

a4ec16b42fe76fc9b6cbe9ae7a21822fThese are two of the largest and grooviest conferences for writers of – and more importantly, readers of – mysteries and thrillers. Each year, these events draw hundreds of people who are passionate about their whodunits. There, they mix and chatter with their favorite writers.

(Deep secret: the writers enjoy it as much, or more, than the fans.)

Thillerest is July 10 to 13 in Midtown Manhattan. Bouchercon, or the World Mystery Convention, is Sept. 19 to 22 in Albany, N.Y.

If you’re a fan, or an aspiring novelist, you really cannot go wrong at these events.
