Killer Nashville International Conference 2015

cj Sez:  This weekend mystery/suspense/crime writers from “everywhere” converge on Nashville, Tennessee, for Killer Nashville International -- http://www.killernashville.com/   And I will be one of them. It’ll be my first “big” conference in a very long time.

Guests of honor for the 2015 conference are

John Gilstrap … the New York Times bestselling author of Against All Enemies, End Game, High Treason, Damage Control, Threat Warning, Hostage Zero, No Mercy, Nathan’s Run, At All Costs, Even Steven, Scott Free and Six Minutes to Freedom.

M. William Phelps … the New York Times best-selling author of 30 books and winner of the 2013 Excellence in (Investigative) Journalism Award.

Robert K. Tanenbaum … a New York Times bestselling author of three nonfiction books, including Echoes of My Soul, The Piano Teacher: The True Story of a Psychotic Killer and Badge of the Assassin

By the by, on Saturday a.m., Oct 31, I’ll be a member of the panel on Writing Romantic Suspense … woo hoo. That’ll be a kick. Since I want people to think I knew what I was doing when I wrote Deadly Star and Choosing Carter, I’m studying up on the genre.

There’s an upcoming new anthology from the conference as well. Killer Nashville Noir: Cold-Blooded is a collection of stories from bestselling authors that include Jeffery Deaver and Anne Perry.  Look for it on its October 27 release date.

Killer Nashville will be chockfull of writers, readers, agents, editors, publishers, old friends, and hopefully, some new friends. I am so looking forward to having a wonderful meet, greet, and learn experience. Fun and work at the same time (part of the job of being a writer). 


I’m thinking about what I need to pack, so I guess I’d better get to it. If you’re at Killer Nashville this weekend, I hope we have a chance to say hi.

You-all guys keep on keeping on, and I’ll try to do the same.

PS: My books will be available at the Killer Nashville Barnes and Noble bookstore.
