At the end of this month I’ll be attending my first Malice Domestic mystery conference in Arlington, Virginia. I’ve heard about the Malice conference for years and I’m very excited to be going with my first book out and available. There’s a speed-dating-type event where authors switch from table to table to meet readers, and I’ll also be sitting on a panel called “I Hear Voices.” I’ll see my agent and also meet my editor for the first time so there will be a bit of business going on. And Saturday is the Agatha Awards ceremony so there should be some dressing up. I’ll be sure to report back on everything that happened!

What are you on the verge of doing? Have you ever been to a mystery conference? Yes? How about sharing some mystery conference tips? 🙂

Meanwhile, I want to jump on Maureen Child’s bandwagon and shout out the news about the very fun new Silhouette Desire blog on eharlequin.com. I’m the newest author in the group and so far, we’re having a blast! Come by and comment if you have a minute. We’re giving away prizes every day this month!

Kate Carlisle is the author of Homicide in Hardcover, the Independent Mystery Booksellers Association’s No. 1 paperback bestseller for February 2009.

    Aww, thanks Jen! I’ll let you know how it goes. I went to Left Coast Crime, too, years ago–as a reader and aspiring author. I think this will be a very different experience. 🙂

    Ooh, I just remembered Left Coast Crime will be in L.A. next year. Should be fun!

    Ohh, I want to hear too! I went to Left Coast Crime about six years ago, it was a blast. You’re going to have a great time. And your editor and agent are going to love meeting you in person!
