In this final post, following my little monkey’s theme of “Hear no evil, speak no evil, see no evil,” (hey it was a Murder Convention…get it???) I’ll share some of the pictures I took for the “SEEN AT BOUCHERCON.” I didn’t take a ton because I already felt a bit gauche, and “touristy” what with the photo snapping I was doing to begin with. Doing that is not conducive for trying to blend in. Matter of fact, I’m thinking it looked SO uncool because I wasn’t doing all those quick, snappy selfies with cell phone – remember, I remain for the most part, technology “untethered.”
I think that might have to change in the near future.
Anywho, here we go!
Who else was “SEEN” by me, but not pictured? Janet Reid, Loretta Ross (DEATH OF THE RED HEADED WOMAN), Colin Smith (a regular REIDER), an editor from GRAND CENTRAL (whoop! I just wish I could remember her name) who sat with THE Barbara Poelle at our table in the bar, and talked “business.” Also seen Donna Andrews, Wendy Corsi Straub, Susan Spann, and someone with a hat and sunglasses on coming through the lobby, who looked so “in,” I just figured he had to be a BIG deal. Except I have no idea who he was, but he had “the look.”
As well, and no offense intended, I saw a LOT of folks who looked on in their years. I think I understand why the publishing industry gets SO excited about young authors. You know, that Five Under Thirty Five. I don’t know. Maybe writing suspense, thriller, crime makes you grow old fast.
