|The table for our anthology publisher, Wildside Press|
|A fun dinner a few blocks away at Guapo's|
|Some Guppy friends pre-banquet|
(I wish I could figure out how to wrap text around these!)
Elizabeth Zelvin, second from the left in the pre-banquet picture took that one, but I've lost track of who took the other two.
I took the ones below, hence the lesser quality.
The Best First panel: Avery Aames (who won!), Laura Alden, Amanda Flower, Sasscer Hill, and honorary Guppy Alan Orloff (the Guppies swept this category--after we added Alan)
The Best Novel panel: Nancy Pickard, Louise Penney (winner), moderator Harriet Sackler, Hank Phillippi ryan, Heather Webber, and Donna Andrews.
The California group, Men of Mystery, with Guppy Tammy Kaehler co-presenter, on the right.
Maggie Toussaint and me on our panel about family in mysteries.
The rest of the panel, Kris Neri, Kay Finch, and moderator Joan Boswell. The lights weren't working the the floor lamps that the hotel crew brought in added an air of, well, hominess? Pretty funny.
Sandra Parshall moderating Tales with Tails.
Verena Rose moderating the guests of honor, Sue Grafton, Carole Nelson Douglas, and Donna Andrews.
After Malice, I spend a few days with my daughter's family and their baby ran a little temp, his first (he's eight months old). I got to go to the doctor with them, and brought home a souvenir cold. Totally worth it, though!
