I first attended Killer Nashville in 2014 when it was held in downtown Nashville. I shared a room with Janet Martinez, a fellow first-time author and online friend. It was great meeting her in person. We were both just getting started in self-publishing, so we shared stories of the misery and the fun when we weren’t attending the wide offering of author panels.
The panels and single-author talks offered by Killer Nashville 2014 spanned a variety of topics of interest to mystery writers and fans, including some great forensic presentations by professionals in the field. The guests of honor that year were Lisa Jackson and William Kent Krueger. Neither of us were able to attend last year, nor can Janet go this year thanks to starting a new teaching job.
The guests of honor this year are Janet Evanovich, Kevin O’Brien, and Robert Randisi. Other presenters include Anne Perry and William Kent Krueger. How’s THAT for an amazing lineup! My plan this year is to take pictures every day and post them each evening here along with a short description of the day’s events. It will almost be like having you all there with me! So—if you can’t go yourself, mark the dates on your calendar and attend vicariously through my pictures and posts. I'm sure we're going to have a great time!
