Calling writers afflicted with mystery book-lover addiction

If you love those hard-boiled heroes and cozy cat mysteries, then the Southwest Chapter of Mystery Writers of America may have just the right conference. The Hard-boiled Heroes and Cozy Cats 2004 Conference is aimed toward helping you write in any mystery sub-genre and will be held on Saturday, June 19, 2004 from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm at the Galleria Holiday Inn on the Katy Freeway in Houston, Texas. The day’s events include a luncheon and a contest. Mystery celebs include Erica Spindler, Bill Crider, Charlene Harris, and Jay Brandon. (Be sure and click on Brandon’s name to see his hot photo on his website.) Literary agent and novelist Evan Marshall and Linda Landrigan, editor of Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine, will also be on hand. The cost is $80member/$85nonmember through June 16, then $90 at the door. The local chapter is full of good people who love writing mysteries and enjoy getting together with other writers.

The only problem with this conference is that it falls on the same day as the SCBWI-Houston conference mentioned yesterday . . . decisions, decisions, decisions.

    I sincerely hope that was a tongue-in-cheek comment about Jay’s photo being “hot.” I about fell off my chair laughing. He appears to be quite the character. Pity I don’t have flight benefits anymore, or I would fly in for this conference, and not just to see Jay’s legs, either. I miss the Mystery Writers meetings & conferences. They were always fun & very informative.
