Countdown to Bouchercon

In five weeks, I’ll be leaving on a jet plane for New Orleans and Bouchercon2016

I’ve never been to NOLA, so that alone is a big draw for me. However, Bouchercon is a mystery lover’s family reunion…if you had hundreds and hundreds of family members.

For example, click here for a list of some of my “family.”

This will be my fifth Bouchercon, although I’ve missed years in between. My first was in Baltimore in 2008. Then I drove to Cleveland for it in 2012. Followed by Long Beach and Raleigh in 2014 and 2015.

In the weeks leading up to “Blood on the Bayou,” I’ll be blogging here every Wednesday to share memories from those previous years.

Oh, and there’s a Bouchercon anthology: Blood on the Bayou containing some incredible short stories including several by good friends of mine. More on that in the coming weeks as well. In the meantime, go here to find links to pre-order it!

This will be my first time in NOLA too, so I am looking forward to great eats, music, sights, and of course, all the camaraderie and good times at Bouchercon!

Grace, be sure and look me up and introduce yourself! Bcon is ALWAYS a bit overwhelming, and I hear this is going to be the biggest one yet. It's good to hook up with someone you know, even if you only know them from online!

Hi Annette. This will be my 21st Bouchercon (!), but I agree that it is hard to see/meet familiar faces/friends. I really enjoy seeing authors on panels and to meet them in person. I really love reading your books, so will definitely try and find you to say "Hi".

Ah, now I've reread your initial post--first time in NOLA, not at Bcon! Duh. Anyhow, I look forward to seeing you there!
