Virtual Mystery Conference, May 24 – 28

I’m back to babysitting this week, so things are a little slower on the writing front, however, I wanted to share info about the Maple Leaf Mystery Conference coming up next week.

It’s a virtual event and for a $25 fee you can attend interviews with Ian Rankin, Rick Mofina, Maureen Jennings and many others. There will also be several panel discussions over this four-day event on a variety of topics for mystery readers and writers. For more info about the program and registration, please check out the link HERE.

I’m not affiliated with the conference and won’t be able to participate this year, but a number of my colleagues are taking part, and I’m excited for them. I will be taking part in a conference in mid-August, but I’ll save that info for a later date.

Great Blogs to Follow This Year

love bloggingLate last year, I began promoting my blog on new platforms and following the blogs of others. It’s been great fun, but also time consuming, I have to admit. Still, just when I think I’ve followed as many people as I can, along comes a terrific Facebook post about the top 100 Canadian book bloggers.

I’m Canadian, so this is exciting stuff for me, but as I scrolled down the list it became clear that many of these blogs will appeal to bloggers everywhere. The list includes publishers, magazines, book reviewers, and writers that includes a wide array of angles and viewpoints.

Go ahead, give it a try. I know I’m going to follow a few, although I’m quite sure I won’t be able to manage all 100. You can find the list HERE

Happy blogging and reading!
