I know it's August (I can tell by how hard the summer doldrums have hit me), but I've started thinking about my conference schedule for next year. DIAMONDS doesn't come out until April, so I'm concentrating on events after that (except for some local happenings).
Here's what I'm considering, so far:
- MWA Mid-Atlantic Chapter's Spies, PIs, and CSIs Conference, in Bethesda, MD, September 12, 2009 (already registered)
- Virginia Festival of the Book in Charlottesville, VA, March 20, 2010
- Malice Domestic in D.C., April 30 - May 2, 2010
- Thrillerfest in N.Y., July 8 – 11 (I believe), 2010
- Bouchercon in San Francisco, October 14 - 17, 2010
Other possible conferences on my radar include:
(Unfortunately, Sleuthfest and Left Coast Crime are being held before April 1. They'll go on the 2011 list.)
I'm sure there are other great conferences I'm missing. Any recommendations?
