Events:

August 13th
Suffolk Va Mystery Authors Festival

A one day small book festival devoted to the mystery and admittance is free. Lots of panels and presentations, lots of authors to meet, and lots of books available for purchase.
I will be there, with Purebred Dead and Curtains for Miss Plym, and will do a workshop with my agent, Dawn Dowdle of Blue Ridge literary Agency entitled, I Don’t Really Need An Agent. Do I ?
Join us. Visit Suffolk Mystery Writers Festival

Decatur Book Festival
Labor day weekend
Sept 2-4th.

This one is huge, even larger than the LA Times Festival in Calif.  I will be in the Sisters in Crime booth several times during the three days, and the books will be in the SinC bookstore. Don’t have times yet, will post them when they are available. Come say ‘hey’ .
Decatur Book Festival

Oct. 7-9
Altoona, Ga Book Festival

There is no web site yet, and will post when it goes live. In the meantime, mark your calenders. I will be there giving a workshop entitled The Torturous Path from Idea to Story.
This is a ‘for fun’ workshop where we will explore how a mystery writer gets an idea and builds a plot. Only this time, the audience will build it. Sharpen you pencils and bring your ideas, but be careful. You’ll have fun and, along the way, you just might learn something about what it takes to write a mystery novel.
