Thanks, all and especially Kristen because I'm pretty introverted and the thought of four days in a mob is daunting.  However I have decided to attend and I very much look forward to meeting you all.

I did post on both thank you for the head's up.

Re: Bouchercon 2019

 

I'm going to Bouchercon this year. Last time I went was in Raleigh and I moderated a panel. Lots happening and crowds of people -- can be difficult for introverts, but I try to hang out with an extrovert.

As Jeff suggested, a QCW meetup would be fun.

Due to a scheduling conflict I won't be at B'con this year, but know those of you in attendance will have a blast and do the QCW community proud.

Hi Michael:   It seems somehow our replies to you are coming from both the queercrimewriters group and the crimewritersofcolor group.  I know you posted a Bouchercon message to both groups. Maybe only those of us in both groups are seeing the intermingled messages.  Just wanted you to be aware.

I'll be there. I agree with what Jeff and Catherine said--it's huge, and can be overwhelming, but is a good chance to meet other writers and introduce yourself to new fans. If you're an introvert like me, definitely plan on scheduling breaks where you can go back to your room and sit quietly for a while. 

We should all meet up for sure--when is everyone planning to arrive? I think I'll be getting there on Wednesday.

Hi Michael,

Bouchercon is huge - 1500 - 2000 readers and writers.  There are so many big name mystery authors there it’s easy to get lost in the crowd and feel out of it, at least for me.  It works best for me when I arrange to meet up with  people I know. If you’re sociable, it’s a great way to meet readers and other authors.

If you can, get on a panel and, if they’re doing an author-go-round (each author gets two minutes to pitch to 20 or so tables of interested readers), try to do that.

I’d planned to go but I may have to cancel since my wife just scheduled to have knee replacement surgery two weeks before. If her surgeon gets a cancellation and it gets done in September then I should be able to leave her.
