Bouchercon Recap

The whirlwind that is Bouchercon is over. I have mixed feelings about it this year because the first half I spent sick from food poisoning in my hotel room and the second half I felt like I needed to catch up to where everyone else was.  Then I went home early to be with my dog.

So was it worthwhile? Absolutely. I met people I only knew online. I love that feeling like you’re old friends yet you’ve never officially met face to face before. I saw folks I hadn’t seen since last year’s Bouchercon. I talked to a woman who said she was a big fan of my work. That alone was awesome. I never get tired of hearing that (not that I hear it that often).  I sold some books and I signed books. That I will never get tired of either. And of course, I came home with some new books to read.

I didn’t win the Anthony but that’s OK by me. I was in great company and the memory of being an Anthony nominee will stay forever with me.

    • Thanks, Michael! I actually got food poisoning from a chicken sandwich I ate at LAX. So it hit me mid-flight. The longest flight of my life! Luckily I only ate 1/2 of it but still. I missed the author speed-dating event which is unfortunate but at least I was well enough to moderate the Best Anthology panel and make it to the Best Novella panel. An eventful B’con for sure!
