It's almost time for Bloody Words!

If you haven’t already registered for next week’s Bloody Words Convention in Toronto you had better rush over and do so. I am on the organizing committee this year, and I can tell you it is going to be just great. The dates are May 28 to 30th.

There is a whole line up of experts from agents to a forensic dentist to a specialist in art fraud to a detective with the Toronto police’s Forensic Identification Services Unit. The police officer who taught me some moves in Close Quarters Combat for my book will be there discussing what police are taught about fighting. That talk might even include a demonstration on yours truly.

The guest of honour is Giles Blunt and the International GoH is Deon Meyer. The toastmaster at the Saturday night banquet will be Linwood Barclay. If you love Linwood’s books but haven’t met him in person, you are in for a treat. I hope he tells us about his vasectomy. I never tire of hearing that story.

Plus there will be author panels featuring your favourite Canadian authors, and some who might just become your favourites. Authors, everyone from Mary Jane Maffini to Peter Robinson, will be taking and reading in the Mystery Café, and three workshops are going to be presented on Sunday morning, including Maureen Jennings’ discussion of how the Murdock books were translated to TV.

And a Friday night party to celebrate the tenth anniversiary of Bloody Words.

So it’s going to be a great weekend in Toronto. I hope to see you there.
