Want to mingle with New York Times best-selling authors? How about lectures from crime fiction writers who have been nominated for some of the highest awards in the field – the Edgar, the Macavity, and the Bruce Alexander Award for historical fiction?
Yes, of course, you do! Register for Sisters in Crime Desert Sleuths WriteNow! 2014 Conference, titled “Mastering Crime Fiction: A Whodunnit How-To.”
If you want to find out about the Conference’s best-selling and award-winning authors, two of whom collaborate with James Patterson and Clive Cussler, check out Desert Sleuths Facebook page, where you will find extended biographies posted in the last week.
Our presenters – Catriona McPherson, Timothy Hallinan, Mark Sullivan and Graham Brown – will speak to you about characterization, plot, making the best use of your writing time, and finishing your projects.
The cost is $100 for Desert Sleuths members and $125 for non-members. The event will be held Friday, August 15, from 6-9 p.m., and Saturday, August 16, from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. at Embassy Suites North, 2577 West Greenway, Phoenix.
The price includes appetizers Friday night with a no-host bar, and a continental breakfast and plated lunch on Saturday. There will be book sales and signings throughout the day Saturday, along with raffle prizes.
