If you live in the NY metro area, have never attended a mystery conference, and wonder what one's like (and if you'll enjoy it), I heartily recommend trying Deadly Ink's conference as a great way to get your feet wet. It's pretty small (100 or so people, including many mystery authors) and extremely friendly, with a nice, compact schedule and special events. Check out their website for more info!
