KILLER NASHVILLE INTERNATIONAL WRITER’S CONFERENCE

badgeknI have had the immense pleasure of being chosen as one of the Top 20 Finalists for the Killer Nashville Claymore Award. This is an annual award for an unpublished novel that has elements of mystery, crime, suspense, or thriller. My entry was a novel entitled By the Book, and I am honored to have it in such wonderful company.

The conference is held from August 23rd to 26th in Franklin, Tennessee (near Nashville) and it will be the highlight of my career as a writer. I will (hopefully) meet the bestselling authors, Jeffrey Deaver, Anne Perry, Ellery Adams, and J.A. Konrath. Agents and editors will be present, and the decisions I’ll have to make about which panel or workshop to attend will be excruciating. But, I can’t wait!

APRIL 22, 2018 – L.A. TIMES FESTIVAL OF BOOKS – UNIVERSITY OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA

I attended this book festival that took place over two days – April 21st and 22nd – in beautiful southern California! I was very excited about this opportunity to meet other authors and book-lovers.

My signing slot was Sunday morning from 10:00 to 11:25 a.m. at the Black Rose Writing booth, but I dropped by the booth on Saturday to scope out the site, meet the other hard-working Black Rose authors, and enjoy the beautiful venue.

What an experience! It was my first time attending a book festival (I know. do you believe it?) and I couldn’t have asked for a better initiation. The weather, of course, was warm and beautiful (I had left behind lots of snow in Québec), and the USC campus was lovely. I was in book-lover’s paradise.

 

 

 

APRIL 28, 2018 – BAY AREA BOOK FESTIVAL – DOWNTOWN BERKELEY

What a week! We took in the sights in L.A., and drove up the coast, visiting Santa Barbara, Carmel, and Monterey along the way. San Francisco, of course, is a jewel to be enjoyed, and we even squeezed in a day of wine-tasting in the Napa Valley. A dream come true!

I spent all day Saturday, signing copies of Sins of the Fathers at the Black Rose Writing booth of the Bay Area Book Festival.  Having the entire day gave me a lot of time to network with fellow Black Rose authors Brad Chisholm and Claire Kim. Matthew Brockmeyer even dropped by a couple of times to chat. It was loads of fun meeting authors and book readers who passed by and stopped to exchange experiences and stories.

Unfortunately, I was too distracted to take pictures in Berkeley, except for this one of our table.

All in all, it was a great ten days in California, and it definitely gave me the taste to do it again.
