Bouchercon 2012 – Cleveland Rocks – Wanna Come?

Bouchercon is the World Mystery Convention.

“is a nonprofit, all-volunteer organization which holds an annual convention in honor of Anthony Boucher, the distinguished mystery fiction critic, editor and author. It is the world’s premier event bringing together all parts of the mystery and crime fiction community, and is commonly referred to as Bouchercon. [bough’·chur·con]

Boucercon 2012 is in Cleveland!  It’s October 4-7 with the opening night event held at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.  I admit that I didn’t even know about this convention before I saw that it was here but now I am psyched!

Here’s the list of authors that will be attending and handling the panels (although that info isn’t available yet).  Here are just a few of those I’m most excited about…

Linwood Barclay, Chelsea Cain, Lee Child, Mary Higgins Clark, John Connolly, Gillian Flynn, Heather Graham, Charlaine Harris, the list goes on and on.

It’s pricey at $175 BUT if you can get yourself here I can hook you up with a place to stay.  As long as you’re willing to give Gage a few hugs, put up with our furry kids, and be willing to carpool with me 25 minutes twice a day.  We have room for more than one 🙂

If you are going ot attend let me know so that we can meet up at some point.  I’m sure you’ll hear me talking more about this later.
