As I can't begin to describe all the activities, I'm going to throw out a few of my pictorial highlights.
Here's the view from my hotel room before last night's event, a literary fundraising author's reception and dinner.
The Girls' Fab Four at the pre-dinner reception: Cara Black, yours truly, Libby Fischer Hellman, and our RED Rhys Bowen.
A fuzzy shot of Rebecca Eaton, producer of PBS's Masterpiece Theater, who was the keynote speaker. She was fabulous.
Today's Bloody Murder panel with me, moderator Patti O'Brien, G.M. Malliet, and Jenn McKinlay.
Our best audience, Kendall, our friend Reine Carter's assistance dog. You know we were fascinating!
Loaning my festival cap to author Brandon Sanderson during our afternoon signing. The sun was fierce!
Another panel and more signings tomorrow, and then I'll be sorry to say goodbye to Tucson.
I hope everyone had as great a weekend, and it was great to be warm!
A last but not least bit of JRW business--here are the 5 winners of Peter Swanson's The Girl with a Clock for a Heart. Winners, please email me your mailing addresses at deb at deborahcrombie dot com and I'll forward them to Peter.
And here I quote Peter:
Joan Emerson, for being first
James Montgomery Jackson, because he gets up at five AM
Kathy Reel, because she's posing with a statue
Denise Ann, because she was up front about wanting to win the book
Beverly Fontaine, because she says there is no such thing as reading too much
