My Los Angeles chapter of Sisters in Crime and my Southern California chapter of Mystery Writers of America are in their second year of sponsoring the California Crime Writers Conference. This is a very special event in Pasadena on the weekend of June 11 & 12 for writers of all stripes, for the newbie to the weathered veteran. That's because there is something for everyone. We're offering tracks about the craft of writing, the business end of it (contracts and advice about agents), matters of crime (talks from police detectives), the nuts and bolts of writing (e-publishing info, small press vs big press) along with a cocktail party with agents and authors.
I'll be teaching a workshop on Researching Historicals on Saturday and you should be in for a good time. The manuscript critiques are all filled but there's still plenty of info to glean and plenty of schmoozing opportunities. You can see more info as well as register here. I hope to see some of you there!
