If you’re as deep in the world of mysteries as we are, then you already know what Bouchercon is: a convention for crime fiction readers, writers, booksellers, publishers, and more. It’s basically a festival of thrillers and suspense novels, and it’s taking place in Albany from September 19-22.
For those of you planning on attending the convention, don’t forget to add our authors’ panels to your schedule! We also urge you to drop by our table in the Dealers’ Room for exclusive samplers from our authors’ books and advance reader editions of our forthcoming titles.
