It’s that exciting time of year when mystery writers come to town for the fabulous conference
Killer Nashville founder Clay Stafford has outdone himself this year with the lineup of talent.
The Guests of Honor are Janet Evanovich and Kevin O’Brien (seriously).
Some of the other well-known authors for this year’s three-day conference include Anne Perry, William Kent Krueger, Charles Todd, John Seigenthaler.
There will be 60 educational sessions in addition to 9 breakout sessions. I will sit on two panels: Fiction as an instrument for social change on Saturday (should be some good discussion here!) and Find your angle (point of view) Sunday morning. If you’re attending KN, I’d love to see you at one or both of these sessions.
Eight agents and editors will be looking for new talent among the attendees. Sign up for a “roundtable” or chat with them in the halls, over lunch or hanging around…(but not in the restrooms, please.)
Lots (and lots) of awards will be given, critiques are available, there’ll be a ‘Shine & Wine tasting’ and a Mock Crime Scene just waits to be solved. These are just some of the events and activities that make Killer Nashville the unique and wonderful conference it is.
Last, but not least, Parnassus Books will set up shop to sell books and host book signings. And, yes, I’ll be there with The New Frontier. My “official” book signing will be Sunday at 1.
Hope to see you at Killer Nashville August 19-21, 2016!
