Bloody Words Ottawa

Had an excellent time at Bloody Words in Ottawa this past weekend. The organizers did a good job. Great panels. I even got to sit on one about PI's and Police. A great dinner as well. sat with the prolific and funny Rick Mofina as well as Rhys Bowen and Kate Jamet. This conference has really become something great. Lousie Penny and Denise Mina were hilarious during their talks.

Looking forward to Bloody Words X in Toronto next year now.

astute man!
not surprised you're a professor.
What I was feebly trying to discern you hit on in one sentence.
thank you.

Hi, Jeff, are you by any chance a fellow Canadian? I LOVE Giles Blunt -- have read them all. Just met Sandra Ruttan on line yesterday, so I'm going to order her book as well, especially after your note on it. I also dig what you said about the crime not being the only key point in a novel, I like when the focus is on the real situation as well.
All the best in writing!

Hope you enjoy the book. I attended the print journalism program at Loyalist. Ended up going in a different direction, but a lot of those grads move on to Carleton.

Teaching scriptwriting must be quite interesting.

Hi Jeff, thanks for the invite. Do you teach at Carleton? I stayed there when I was on a field trip for grade 8 graduation, which feels like a lifetime ago! Always liked Ottawa.

Hi Jeff. I'm glad you're enjoying my blog. We must have been in North Carolina at the same time. The Outer Banks is a favorite spot of mine.

Hi Jeff
Michael Connelly has made many of the author lists on this site. He's an inspiration to the trade.
Good luck with your writing.

Jeff, if you get a chance, please look at the video trailer for Just North of Luck and let me know if you find it as compelling as the cover. All feedback is appreciated.

I agree, Jeff. The crime writers I've met have all been very helpful and supportive. I wouldn't say that about some of the editors and agents I've met, however.

Welcome aboard. Look forward to seeing you on the boards.

That is one casual Avatar, and a more ecclectic selection of writers than most in this community. Welcome.
