This really is a request for bright ideas, not a sneaky form of BSP. My new book is scheduled for publication on October 13, 2009, when many CrimeSpacers, including me, will be arriving in Indianapolis. I have a New York party scheduled for later in the month, but it would be great to celebrate with so many reader and writer friends while we're all in one place. My first move was to ask the con organizers, who would be delighted to help me do something at the hotel but told me the cost would be prohibitive. If your next thought is, "She should ask her publisher," I plan to do that, but I'm not at the level (second book, hardcover only so far) at which they are likely to spend promotion dollars. So I need some creative ideas, especially from Bouchercon veterans.
