I just returned from a trip to the Mexican Caribbean. It was a cruise saluting Veterans, very patriotic (I am a Vietnam Era vet). I was on a panel of authors talking to the vets about writing their memoirs. The cruise was terrific! We got together later with the travel agent who pulled together the trip and pitched the idea of a mystery cruise. I came up with the title: Murder On the High Seas: A Cruise To Die For.

I heard today that the travel agent can pull it together by next fall. 7 days sailing the Mexican Riviera, leaving from Los Angeles, Carnival Splendour seems the probable choice, rates are approx. $350 inside cabin, $550 balcony.
You can see what we're talking about at

I'm suppose to get together with my cohorts in crime and come up with panels and programs so we know how many meeting rooms to reserve. Any ideas?

Is this too soon for anyone to plan? There wouldn't be any extra fees for the conference but we're going to try to negotiate with the ship to sell books. And there wouldn't be any silly rule about who's an author. In fact, I'd love to see small press publishers show up and show their wares!

Hey Dan! Looks like we have Austin Camacho in common (I met him at Malice Domestic a few years back).
I'm not planning the cruise, I just get to announce as it formulates. Putting together panels and speakers is going to be my contribution. I get to do the fun stuff!
FOOLS RUSH IN is set in my part of the world, the San Joaquin Valley. We are the raisin capitol of the world (think Fresno dancing raisins) and the mystery entails a bit of that in setting. Glad you liked the cover!
