I plan on getting lots of rest this week, because next week I will be at an incredible event that I have been lucky to attend in the past: Murder and Mayhem in Muskego. And I won’t be alone. There are more than 25 authors who will be speaking with readers, chatting on panels and holding workshops throughout the day. They will also be ready, willing and able to sign books (which are available for purchase at the Muskego Library courtesy of Mystery One Bookstore) and basically answer any questions you might have.
Coffee will flow. Lunch is served and a celebration of books will be had.
Yeah…it’s pretty awesome. If you live anywhere in the area of Muskego, WI (which is not too far outside Milwaukee and a pretty quick ride from the Chicagoland area), this might be the event for you! It is fun, friendly and a wonderful way to meet authors you love and authors that you haven’t heard of.
Oh – and this year the fabulous Marcia Clark (yep…you know that name from the OJ Simpson trial and will want to check out her books) will be attending. I had the pleasure of meeting her about 2 months ago and she is well and truly fabulous.
If you are interested in attending – check out the website. The registration form is there along with the list of authors, panels and other fun facts. Honestly, it is a great event and I am incredibly honored to once again attend.
And in case you are wondering where else I’ll be in the upcoming months – here is a list of my shenanigans that I promise will be updated to my website soon!
