You are a multi-faceted guy, Tony. I enjoy the short mysteries on Crime & Suspense. Thanks for being so generous to other writers.

Hi, Tony. Yes, the Citizens' Police Academy was a blast. Since we graduated last week, this will be the first Monday with no CPA and I'm already feeling the void.

Many conferences are genre-specific, and since you are here on Crimespace I'm making the assumption that you are talking about crime/mystery/suspense/thriller novels.

One thing to realize is that, in the world of Cons, there are two different types: CONferences and CONventions. Conventions are great for fans of the genre, but generally have less value to budding writers. So, I'd stick with conferences if possible.

Depending on how far you are willing to travel, here are a few that are coming up in the next four months:

Criminal Pursuits -

New England Crime Bake -

Forensic University of St. Louis -

Clues and Red Herrings -

Tony Hillerman Writers' Conference -

Great Manhattan Mystery Conclave (Manhattan, KANSAS) -

I know none of them are very close to us here in the Southeast, but if you take a look at their websites, you may find one that is of enough value to make it worth the trip.

Thanks for the tip on this site.

I'm working on my first real novel and its good to get insite from the many different levels of experienced writers.

Are there any other conferences that you would recommend?

We met at the HAW conference at the dinner on Saturday night. Thanks for the info about this site. I'm working on a project and want to stay in touch.

My card has e-mail and a new website that I just setup.

Thanks Again

There has been some discussion about the impending demise of the Crime and Suspense ezine. With apologies to Mark Twain, the reports of it's death have been greatly exaggerated.

The Crime and Suspense ezine is still alive and well. We are taking a brief hiatus as we shift gears, however, as we are changing our format. The August issue will be on the streets as planned, but the first issue after that will be the November/December issue.

The 'zine will be bimonthly now, still with reviews, interviews and stories. We'll have more stories per issue, though, as well as audio components to each issue.

We have also gone to a paying-market and subscription-support model. If you are interested in the new way of doing things, visit the Crime and Suspense website ( for the details.

Hi, Tony - it's good to 'see' you. I didn't realize you lived in Georgia. Champion napdog, eh? :) I've got a couple of cats like that.

Hi, Brian! If you mean the stories for the ezine, they're arriving pretty steadily. If you mean stories for the Christmas anthology this year, I have a few already! If you mean my own stories... who has time to write???

Hi Tony, thanks for the add. How are the stories coming?
At 11:17am on April 8, 2007, Tony Burton said…
Hey thanks, Larry! It's an unusual story, I guess, and not for everyone, so I'm glad you liked it. It's sort of my bow to Frank Peretti.

I just finshed reading "A Knife in the Devil's Hand," in the Spring *Great Mystery and Suspense,* and enjoyed it a great deal. Good read.

Hi, Tony. Thanks for suggesting that I come here. Haven't had a chance to do much yet, but I like what I see.

Hi Tony! I'm checking in with everyone I already know. It's great to see you here. Are we having fun yet?

Saw a couple more people from MMA at the Spring Book Show this weekend, which was very nice. Thanks for remembering my name, Lynette!

Hi Tony, it's really nice to be able to put a face with the names I'm used to on MMA. I'm glad you signed up here.
