Our cup of tea
Another brief report from Malice Domestic. I've been home all of 12 hours, so there's no excuse!
As always it's such fun to meet readers, and even other authors with whom I've had only a cyber relationship. Our Killer Hobbies panel yesterday morning was a lot of fun, like a great crafts fest, in person with Monica, Terri, and Betty at the table, and a smiling Joanna in the audience. She'd made her own wonderful appearance already.
Maybe we'll have Linda, also, at the next one. We thought of you, L!
One of my favorite parts was "Malice Go 'Round" where pairs of authors made the rounds of 20 tables of readers, giving a 60- to 90-second "pitch" at each one! I was amazed at how much we could say in such a short time, and also give away cards and pens. My partner, with a bowl of candy, was the wonderful, energetic Deb Sharp, whom I hope to entice to be our guest here soon!
If you did not go to Malice and wish you had gone, and would like a small souvenir, please send a request to me at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday and I'll draw a name and ship you a surprise over the weekend! Please use MALICE SOUVENIR or something similar in the subject line.
