Where are the Maine Crime Writers at Bouchercon 2017?

by Barb, who is already in Toronto happily awaiting her fellow Maine Crime Writers

Four of the Maine Crime Writers, Brenda Buchanan, Dick Cass, Bruce Robert Coffin, and Barbara Ross, will be in Toronto this week for Bouchercon, the World Mystery conference. We’d love to talk to you anytime you run into us at the conference. That’s a big part of the fun of these cons. But you can also find some of us in particular places at particular times. Here they are:

Wednesday, October 11, 1:00 to 6:00, Barb will be attending the SinC into Great Writing, Alex Sokoloff’s workshop, Screenwriting Tricks for Authors, sponsored by Sisters in Crime National. (Pre-registration required.)

Thursday, October 12,

  • 8:00 am to 10:00 am, Bruce Robert Coffin will be Author Speed Dating–that is taking 2 minutes to describe his work to each of 22 tables filled with readers, in Grand Ballroom East.
  • Noon to 4:30 pm, Barbara Ross will be at the autographing free books at the Kensington Hospitality Suite in the Grand Ballroom Foyer along with many other Kensington authors. They’ll be passing out cool glasses cases and micro-cleaning clothes (see below).
  • 8:00 to 9:00 pm, (or immediately after the opening ceremonies) Bruce Robert Coffin will be signing at the HarperCollins book signing eventin the Grand Ballroom West.

Kensington giveaways: glasses cases and microfiber cleaning clothes.

    Barb, Bruce and all, Have a great time! I know you’ll represent Maine very well. Any way Jon-attendees can purchase the cleaning cloths and glasses cases? They’re so cool.
