This year’s conference for mystery writers and readers tackles everything you were afraid to ask about researching, writing, publishing, and promoting books across the genre.

Our Guest of Honor, Meg Gardiner, is the Edgar-winning author of two thriller series, the stand-alone novel, Ransom River, and The Shadow Tracer, due out June 27th. Meg has been dubbed “The Next Suspense Superstar” by Stephen King.

Meg won an Edgar Award for China Lake, the debut novel in her series on Evan Delaney and her hottest guy on wheels, Jesse Blackburn, plus an Amazon Top Ten Thriller Award and a Romantic Times Reviewers’ Choice Award for novels pairing forensic psychiatrist Jo Beckett with pararescueman Gabe Quintana.

PLUS: Top New England authors engage in stimulating discussions on today’s hot topics, including creating and sustaining a career, high concept novels, mixing a little death into your recipe for a cozy series, detecting the past, and modern heroes and heroines.

Forensic experts strip bare the facts on police procedure and traumatic injury, and you can get specific answers to your questions from “Ask the Experts” guests willing to reveal the underlying details of law enforcement, the legal process, medical procedures, the writing craft, and social media.

Agents and editors show you how to avoid the erroneous zones in pitching and submitting your manuscript and what you need to do to wrap up a publishing deal.

Master class instructors touch on all areas of the writing process, from the anatomy of a bestseller to maintaining suspense through to the climax of your novel. Published authors in your genre can help you massage your manuscript with a private one-on-one critique.

The night heats up on Saturday with our Trouble in Paradise banquet and costume party! Try to expose the identities of your fellow guests. We’ll dispense prizes for the best! Then join us on the dance floor for some bump and grind to wind up the evening.

We expect another SOLD OUT conference!
