Bouchercon Bound, But Barry?

I'm days away from heading off to Bouchercon 2008 in Baltimore where I'll get to visit with readers and other authors, participate in some panels, spend time with my sisters and await that moment to see whether or not I'll win the coveted 2008 Barry Award for "Best Original Paperback" for THE BLACK WIDOW AGENCY.

Can't wait! Win or lose, it's bound to be a great trip and there are many folks going that I know "virtually" but can't wait to meet in "reality" including my fellow Midnight Ink Authors and my terrific agent, Jill Grosjean.

I'll be sure to give a full report upon my return.
