Killer Nashville 2012

What is your favorite season of the year? Spring? Fall? Mine is conference season. And it's here now.

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.
