Love is Murder in Chicago by Julie Anne Lindsey
Nothing heats up an arctic vortex like a little love and murder. I had the amazing opportunity to grab a handful of both at the Love is Murder conference in Chicago last month. In fact, I bought a bagful of love and murder at the onsite bookstore!
This annual Midwestern conference brings crime fiction lovers together for a weekend of panels, workshops and parties. Love is Murder has endless opportunities to meet your favorite mystery authors, hone your craft and learn about the industry. Agents, editors and booksellers are on hand to take pitches, answer questions and mingle. I participated in panels, met some fellow Sisters in Crime and wholly enjoyed a weekend centered on murder.
If you’re an East Coast mystery lover looking for a break from the winter doldrums, check out the Love is Murder conference and spend a weekend with fellow crime fiction enthusiasts. It’s an event you won’t soon forget.
