First of all, big hugs to everyone I met in Dallas last weekend! I had an amazing time talking books with people (and a whole list of books to recommend once I finally get around to writing a post about it). I adore conferences where people give me books, have silent auctions for books, and raffle off books. The airport security people must have thought I was some sort of crazy book rustler as I hauled my way through the scanner machines with two bags, which contained, in aggregate, one change of clothes, one bottle of contact lens solution, one computer, and twenty-two books (yes, I counted). What can I say? I like to have plenty of reading material on board.
This weekend, I’m off to Illinois, for Warren-Newport Public Library’s Cozy Library Extravaganza, a celebration of cozy mystery novels. Festivities commence at one o’clock and carry on till four. Other authors appearing include Libby Fischer Hellmann, Robert Dalby, Cordelia Frances Biddle, Helen Osterman, Deb Baker, Charles Dickinson and Julie Hyzy. And the best part is, it’s free! Did I mention that it’s free?
So if you’re in the area, please do stop by and join us for the panel discussion (and the tea and cookies) or pop by later in the afternoon to have a book signed.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
