Featuring multi award-winning, bestselling authors Sophie Littlefield, Kelli Stanley and Juliet Blackwell. This will be a high-energy event designed to whip you and your writing into shape. Visit
www.DesertSleuths.com for more details and to register.
This is one of my favorite conferences and I never miss it. Always
conveniently located, as of late it's also had some classy venues. Last
years it was at the Wrigley mansion and this year's will be, as mentioned
above, at the gorgeous Botanical Gardens.
The speakers cover truly diverse topics from supernatural mystery to using
grammar correctly, and . . . a great editor to run your work by. Carol Test
is my colleague in the Creative Writing program at Phoenix College. If
you're ready to have a sample of your work evaluated, I highly recommend
that you take advantage of this wonderful opportunity.
Plus, did I mention that the conference price will be easy on your wallet -
-$75 in advance and $80 at the door. That includes lunch.
I hope to see you there. All good books contain suspense and learning how to
build a strong mystery can only improve your stories no matter what genre
you write in.
