Uploads and Updates

If you haven’t been checking out the St. Louis Bouchercon blog, you’ve missed out on some fine interviews with first-time Anthony Award nominees. The conversations are being conducted by author Julia Spencer-Fleming, who has so far buttonholed Graham Moore (The Sherlockian), Bruce De Silva (Rogue Island), James Thompson (Snow Angels), and others.

The full run of those interviews should be found here.

Meanwhile, Bouchercon organizer (and Crimespree Magazine co-editor) Jon Jordan sent out a message yesterday to people who’ve signed up for the September 15-18 convention. In it, he reminded everybody that tickets (at $25 apiece) are now available for the Sunday Anthony Awards brunch. Send cash or checks, along with your name, to:

Bouchercon 2011
536 South 5th Street
Milwaukee, WI 53204

Also, he writes, “If you plan to be on a panel, please please please get ... your 100-word-or-ess bio and a (small) photo to us by Friday; anything arriving after that may not make it into the program book.” Send those materials to Jordan at registration@bouchercon2011.com

Check the Bouchercon blog here for further updates.
