Find us at Bouchercon



The gang from Mystery Playground is going to Bouchercon, the world's largest mystery convention, next week. The convention is being held in Long Beach, California, November 13-16. Kim, Kerry and I will be together and we'll reporting as much as we can. 

This is an optimistic and ambitious group, and we always think we can get more done than we actually can, so I can promise you that there will be more posts after the convention is over. 

If you are at Bouchercon, come find us at a panel and introduce yourselves. 

Here's where you'll be able to find us...
