Deadly Ink is well under way in New Brunswick, New Jersey. Somewhere between 60 and 100 people - readers and authors - are enjoying each other's company.
Our good friend Mr. Holmes was present in spirit - also in cardboard - at a panel featuring authors Carole Bugge, Roberta Rogow and Marvin Kaye, discussing "Sherlock Holmes, Past, Present and Future."
Another highlight of the day: Toastmistress Hilary Davidson interviewing Guest of Honor Reed Farrel Coleman.
Lots of opportunities to talk together, eat together, drink together - and, still to come, a banquet and the winner of the David Award for best mystery published in 2015. Tomorrow morning, Leslie and I will be part of a panel of fans discussing favorite books, authors and genres.
Wish you were here? I'll let you know when information is available about next year's conference.
