Coffee, Tea, and a Smoking Gun is the name of a Sisters in Crime open-to-all event at the Schaumburg Township District Library for this coming Saturday, 10am-4:45pm
At 1:30, I'll be doing a workshop called Promo Primer: On and Offline Marketing Tools and Tips for Writers. Maybe there's some ideas about promoting you're not aware of, or you'd like to share your ideas.
At 2:30, I'll be on a panel about Romantic Suspense, along with Patricia Rosemoor and Sherrill Bodine. As you may know, my new release, Killer Career, falls into that category.
Other workshops and panels include Five Tips to Get Your Book Written, Interviewing your Characters, Adding Suspense, Write What You Know or Write What You Want to Know.
Other authors on panels and workshops include J.A. Konrath, Libby Fischer Hellmann, Laura Caldwell, Gail Lukasik, Michael Allen Dymmoch, Luisa Buehler, J.D.Webb, Frances McNamara, Henry Perez, Jamie Freveletti and Jennie Spallone.
It'll be a fun, learning experience, with raffles, book signings, and a cop speak/crime scene put on by author/police officers, Michael Black and Dave Case.
If you're in the Schaumburg, Illinois area, come join us.
