Literary Friday, ya’ll…

Well, after the fun of Bouchercon (did you follow my adventures on Instagram?) and the November elections (and yes, folks- looks like there will be a run-off in less than 3 weeks!) I am a wee bit tired this week. And then yesterday, I found out my niece swallowed a penny. I need a Hallmark movie and a large drink. 😉

ALSO… we’re under a freeze warning tonight and the temperatures are looking pretty chilly for part of next week. Brrrrrrrrrr….

  1. I hadn’t heard of Bouchercon before, but it sounds like a fun event! I’ve only been to more general bookish cons and a more genre-focused one would be interesting. It also looks like this is happening pretty close to the me next year, so I’ve signed up for their newsletter and am at least thinking about going 🙂

    • It is really interesting. And fun. It’s kinda hard to explain- because you have such a mix of ppl attending- fans, people who are trying to be authors and authors. I think the host hotel fills up fast once you can register- in fact we were supposed to stay at a different hotel- but they had some last minute cancellations and we were able to get a room in the hotel Bouchercon was being held at.

      I doubt I’ll make Sacramento- between Book Expo and just other things- Sacramento will prob be out of the budget unless I win the lottery (which MS FINALLY FREAKING GOT!!!!!)
