Hi folks,

Well, got my Bouchercon panel assignment for this coming October in Raleigh, N.C., and in my humble opinion, it's the single best one for the conference. If you attend, please plan to check our gang out.

When: October 9     1 pm (50 minutes)

Where: Marriott Hotel, Stateroom C


Who: Eric Beetner (moderator); Panelists, Tom Young, Chris Pavone, Les Edgerton, Trey R. Barker.

Followed by a book signing from these participants at the Sheraton Hotel Hannover Ballroom

It's gonna get all crazy up in here! I really hope to see a lot of friends here. I'll be on another presentation with a group of writers who appeared in Tom Pluck's anthology, time and place still to be determined.

I'm rooming again with my buddy Jack Getze and he's the moderator for another panel a couple of days after mine. If you're looking for Jack and me, just look in the bar. What bar? Well, ALL the bars... Stay there long enough and we'll run into each other.

And in addition... I just received a singular honor. My book THE RAPIST was just officially licked by uber-reviewer Becky Franklin. This is an honor that ranks with winning the Pulitzer or National Book Award or the Oscar. Of course, that's just my opinion, but it's the only one I have...

(Hide your eyes if you're under 21...) You can read her developing review here.

This means I've now hit the trifecta! Here are the two previous "licks"...

And, here's me and Becky when we first met in Oklahoma City...

I'm sending her a gift bottle of water so she doesn't get dehydrated...

That's all, folks!

Blue skies,

It's going to get all insane up in here! I truly would like to see a great deal of companions here. I'll be on another presentation with a gathering of essayists who showed up in Tom Pluck's compilation, time place still to be resolved. term paper writing services
