Surviving Bouchercon

Here I am after my Bouchercon panel, hurling zoo animal cookies to the audience in my best herring-to-seals feeding style. Tom Schreck (TKO) moderated "I could have lied--Real life experiences". Julie Kramer (Stalking Susan) is on the left, Kit Ehrman (Triple Cross) is standing beside me. Andy Harp (Northern Thunder) is down in the audience out of sight. We put our heads together beforehand and agreed we wanted a fun, high-energy panel. Not hard with a a social worker/boxing judge (Tom), a TV journalist (Julie), a race horse expert (Kit), a Marine colonel (Andy), and a zookeeper (that would be me). The result was many truly terrible jokes, some interruptions, ancecdotes, and a lot of laughter. And then flying animal cookies. Oh, and I got back home to Portland to find that Night Kill made the September best-seller list from Independent Mystery Booksellers!

What fun, Ann. But I was dismayed to read the title of Julie's latest book. Hadn't seen it before, but my second book in a series is called Stalking Season. Since she beat me to publication, I guess I'm going to have to change it. :-(

Hi Ann
It would have been fun to meet you at Bouchercon. Are you on Facebook or Crimespace?

Yes, LJ, it would have been fun to meet up at Bouchercon. It's lonely being a new author among 400 writers! And yes, I'm on both Facebook and Crimespace. See you there?
