The photo is from this year's Public Safety Writers Conference on the last day and some of the people had already gone home. The reason I'm writing about it now is because plans are already underway for the conference in June from the 17th to the 20th at the Orleans hotel in Las Vegas.
We already have an impressive lineup of speakers and presenters:
Simon Wood who is going to tell us how to create suspense.
Michael A. Wood who will show us how to create a plot in one hour.
Michael Orenduff who, along with his artist wife, is going to show us what makes a good cover and what doesn't.
Joyce Spizer Foy is going to ask, "Is your Hero to Good and your Villain too Bad?"
Sunny Frazier is going to tell us, "How Much Sex is too Much."
And, Forensic Expert Steve Scarborough will be back but hasn't quite decided what new topic he will present.
That's just the beginning. We'll have panels for authors who'd like to be on one.
And yes, you can bring your books for sale.
There is an early bird registration fee for anyone who signs up before October 31st. All the information should be appearing on the website this week:
