The Jungle Red Writers had a great time, with Hallie moderating our panel on Do You Want to Know a Secret? What we all wish we'd known BEFORE we'd gotten into the mystery writing business.
This was Hank's idea and we attracted a packed crowd because everybody wants to know a secret.
We did our best to offer entertainment and encouragement, and had a lot of fun exchanging war stories.
Characters who won't behave, plots that won't work and writing ourselves into tight corners.
And of course, rejections, bad reviews, and the pros and cons of promotion.
At the Sisters In Crime luncheon earlier that day, Roberta said farewell as president of the national organization, where she'd wowed everyone with her hard work, cool hand and attention to detail.
We had a great weather in Baltimore, and lots of fun attending panels, auctions, and parties at this well-organized event.
Not to mention all the fun smoozing with other writers, editors, booksellers, reviewers and most of all READERS.
