Getting Ready for #Bouchercon

Bouchercon, the world's mystery convention, starts this Thursday in Raleigh, NC and many of the Mystery Playground team will be present - Deborah Lacy (that's me), Kerry Hammond, Sharon Long and Kim Hammond

We'll be reporting from the convention with plenty of photos and news. This year's guests of honor include Mystery Writer's of America Lifetime Achievement Edgar award winner, Margaret Maron, Bones creator and author, Dr. Kathy Reichs, and Tom Franklin. 

I'm looking forward to seeing all three authors at their spotlight events and the opening ceremonies where Harper Collins will be giving away copies of some of their books signed by the authors at the party. I'm also excited for the charity live and silent auctions. We will be giving away a set of our custom made Agatha Christie placemats

I'm moderating two panels this year, so if you're at Bouchercon, stop on by. The first is called, Tweet This, and it's about using social media in the mystery community. That's Thursday, October 8th at 2:30 pm in the Marriott, University Room, AB. 

The second is Friday at 10:00 am and it's called, Write What You Know: Day Job or Not. The panelists include Hank Phillipi Ryan, Joe Clifford, Susanna Calkins and Nancy West. Both are sure to be a fun time. 

You can see the entire Bouchercon schedule here. Hope to see you in Raleigh.
