If You're Near Austin

I’m SO proud of the writing group I belonged to when I lived in Austin, Texas! They’re still writing, turning out priceless prose, some with publishing success, some are still breaking in. But all of them are out there swinging. The event they’re putting on, Anatomy of a Mystery, is just an example. On November 9th, at Book People, the free sessions will run from 9:30 to 2:00, with presentations by Reavis Z. Wortham, Karen MacInerney, and Janice Hamrick, all successful local writers. After the last presentations, the audience has a chance for discussion with the authors. There is also special swag available for the first 25 attendees.

They’re called Austin Mystery Writers. Check out the flyer:

Here’s the facebook page also:

I’m loving living in Tennessee, but wish I were back in Texas for November 9th!


  1. We wish you could be here too! Thanks for letting the world know about the workshop. I think it's going to be great.

  2. Thank you so much for getting the word out. Guess you couldn't jet in just for the weekend, huh? (We'd cut you in on the swag.) It ain't the same without you.

  3. It's always nice to get publicity!
    It would be nice if you could be here. When are you swinging by for your next Austin visit? We would have to do lunch and write blogs about it all over again.

  4. I shared a book signing/presentation with Reavis at Murder By The Book in Houston back in July. He's a great author and great guy.

  5. Alas, I'm too far away. Sounds like a wonderful event.

  6. Alas, me too, LD! I'm sure it's going to be a huge success.
