Bloody Scotland / Bouchercon

bloodyscotI’m going to be on the road a lot the next few weeks. Saturday I head off to Bloody Scotland — alas, only for the day — and then Tuesday I’m Stateside bound, back to NY for a few weeks to see my pals and enjoy Bouchercon. I’ll apologize in advance because I know I won’t see everybody while I’m in NY (sorry!) but I hope to see as many of you as I can. Maybe I can talk Bertie into us giving a housewarming party…!

As much for myself (so I can find it later) as for anyone who wants to catch up, here’s my planned activities at the cons so far:

Picture This: Denise Mina
2:00 PM – Academy Suite

Keeping Secrets: Charles Cumming & Chris Morgan Jones
3:30PM – McLaren Suite

This is just the *I have to be there* events. I haven’t looked through the schedule and I know a lot of pals are on panels, so I will sort that. In general I’ll probably be found at most panels labeled “noir” or ones featuring my fave writers. Please let me know where you’ll be or if you see something I won’t want to miss, point it out to me! There’s so much going on. When in doubt, look for Chastity Flame!
