This year's Killer Nashville mystery writers' conference in Nashville, Tennessee closed yesterday. It was another great conference.
My conference highlights:
* Dr. Bill Bass (founder of the University of Tennessee's "Body Farm") presenting the opening session.
* Agent/Editor Round tables - 2 page (kind) critiques with feedback from publishing professionals & a chance to submit a manuscript.
*The Killer Nashville Crime Scene - a mock crime scene attendees try to solve. The winner gets a free registration to next year's conference.
*Presenting the workshop "Using Archetypes to Create YA Characters: Heroes, Villains, and Sidekicks" with my friend, Cate Hart. Nervewracking, but fun!
*Seeing writer friends.
I look forward to next year. Until then, the Killer Nashville community meets year-round on the conference blog.
