Well, not exactly. But I am now a Vice President. Sure, it’s only for the Midwest Chapter of the Mystery Writers of America, but that’s still pretty cool (I was the only candidate, and they had blackmail information to make me run BUT STILL…) In addition to the web duties, I’ll be working on scheduling meetings and on the MWA booth at the Printer’s Row book festival. Yay me! In other news, I’ve updated my EVENTS page with stuff for 2010. Check it out!
My book Cash & Carry and the Odd Jobs/David Diangelo series have been nominated for a couple of Lovies, the local mystery conference award. Stiff competition so I don’t have high hopes, but still an honor.
I’m late! But I’m on my way to the Westin North Shore for Love is Murder. I’ll be live-blogging the weekend at Midwest Mystery Writers website – talking to panelists, story-pitchers and publishers and any behind-the-scenes news (hitting the bar). Check back there all weekend!
In two weeks the premier mystery convention for the Midwest, Love is Murder, kicks off. If you’re interested in writing mysteries or, frankly, any other genre you should check this con out. Besides, what else are you going to do on a frigid February weekend?
