I want to tell you all about a type of mystery convention. This one is called Killer Nashville Conference. And, what a perfect time of year for a mystery convention: All Hallow’s Eve, Allhalloween, Day of the Dead, Halloween!
The Killer Nashville Conference is a convention that is held every year that draws some of the most thrilling authors. Their list of past guests of honors include authors like Donald Bain, Carol Higgins Clark, J.A. Jance, Anne Perry, Jeffery Deaver, Michael Connelly, and William Kent Krueger. That’s quite a who’s-who type of list! The 2015 Killer Nashville Conference will be taking place from October 29 to November 1, at the downtown Omni Hotel. What a perfect place to be on Halloween night!
As it is with all of these mystery conventions, lots of us cannot attend. The good news is that there will be an anthology that will include many mystery stories from some of the biggest mystery-writing names out there!
