Thanks for adding me to your list of friends, but does it mean I'm one among two thousand or more? Is that better or worse than being one in a million?
Really like your writing style from what I've seen.
Hi, Morgan! Thanks for adding me to your line-up of friends. I look forward to finding out more about you and your work. I hope you’ll check out my new thriller, IM, about a serial killer preying on gay men using Internet hookup sites.
Hi Morgan! I spent a wonderful couple of days in Chicago loving your snow a few winters ago. You got 13 inches while I was visiting. I was originally from Atlanta so I never get enough real winter.. Thank you for your invite. :-)
Hi Morgan, SMFS is the Short Mystery Fiction Society, a yahoo group for writers. Cassell Network of Writers, CNW, is a writers organization for freelancers. Both groups are great sources of information.
Oh, no! I'd been looking forward to Carson's...sigh. Chicago isn't the great place to shop it used to be. We lost the Emporium and I. Magnin years ago in SF. MF and CPS were holdovers from a much more elegant era. I'll miss them both.
Thanks for letting me know, Morgan.
Hi, Morgan! The conference in January is called the APA/AIA annual--it's like the Bouchercon for classicists and archaeologists, and believe me, there's even more alcohol consumed at this than at writing conferences! ;)
I'm giving a presentation on comic books and classics, as part of an Outreach Panel--it'll be fun (plus, I love Chicago--it's my mom's hometown!) I'll be doing a lot of publicity for my book, too.
But I'm still really upset about Marshall Fields! :(
Hi Morgan, thought I'd stop by now that I have some clue how Crimespace works. Where do you live in Chicago? I was born in Evanston. Last time I was back was to go to Bouchercon 2 years ago and I gotta say the downtown area was so nice it was hardly recognizable. Congrats on your first novel Two Wrongs. Is it a mystery? Romance? Both? EPIC is not a bad place to get a start. I won an EPPI in 2003 and now Poisoned Pen Press is re-issuing Listen to the Mockingbird, my historical mystery/suspense next month. They say it never happens, but it does. Is Hard Shell still around? They had a good rep, but I thought I'd heard they had closed. Cheers and best of luck.
Hi, Morgan, and thanks for the invite! My mom's from Chicago originally--it's one of my favorite cities.
I'll be there in early January for a conference (yeah, it's gonna be cold!), but still--the hot dogs (complete with celery salt) and pizza are worth it! (Though I miss Marshall Field's. There's a reserved level in hell for Federated Department Stores).
