Love is Murder by Margot Justes

A conference not to be missed – Love is Murder (LIM). I have attended said conference for three years now. It gets better every year.

The likes of Lee Child, Barry Eisler, Tess Gerritsen, Carolyn Haines, William Kent Krueger and Joe Konrath – that was the star line up this year. Pretty impressive.

Along with many authors were the publishers and agents ready to hear pitches. Truly a well organized intimate conference that packs a punch.

The panels were informative and well attended. Todd Stone’s Whiskey tasting was packed with eager participants, anxiously awaiting the brew.

The bag piper was awesome. I have said before, keep the Whiskey; just give me the piper.

I wish I could name all the other authors that participated, but I would be here all day. Echelon authors Luisa Buehler and Silvia Foti won the Lovey awards. I am partial to Echelon, since if you look at the bottom of this blog, you’ll see Echelon listed right under the title of my book.

In fact I pitched my first year at the conference. The second year I signed a contract. This year I actually got to hold my book; for a very brief period of time. Between the conference and a book signing, I sold the fifty copies I had. I am eagerly awaiting another shipment.

Till next Saturday,

I'm going to comment on my own blog-after reading Norm's-shame on me for neglecting to mention the ACME troops-we were all there and did incredibly well.
I even bought Norm's second book-my daughter loves his writing...but I digress. ACME was represented in full at LIM.
