Crime Bake registration is open!

It’s hard to think about November in May. I know, I know. You don’t want me to make you.
But tear your eyes for a minute from those tulips sprouting out front and imagine the cold, dead trees, the wind blowing through their empty branches and — yes — Crime Bake!
It may be months away, but the best weekend of the year for those of us who write mysteries and people who are simply fans of the genre is open for registration.

The event, scheduled for Nov. 8, 9 & 10 in Dedham, Mass., is a great way to network with other mystery writers, meet agents and editors, eat and drink and talk mystery. It’s co-sponsored by the Mystery Writers of America and Sisters in Crime.

This year’s guest of honor is suspense novelist Meg Gardiner. Friday’s master classes will be taught by award-winning Hallie Ephron (Anatomy of a bestseller!),  Peter Abrahms, Elizabeth Benedict (on writing great sex scenes!), Linda Barnes, Stuart Horwitz, and Maine’s Paul Doiron.

We’ll have more info, thoughts and other neat stuff about this event in coming posts. But today the message is sign up. It fills up fast. Wicked fast. I know it’s hard to imagine that when spring has barely sprung (especially for those of us in the frozen north), but it will be here before you know it.

Go to for more details.

  1. Crime Bake is the carrot I hold in front of myself for the summer’s writing: get those pages piled up, then jump into a weekend of writerly empathy, enthusiasm, even exhilaration. And what I learn at each Crime Bake feeds the next season of writing and (effective!) promotion. I can hardly wait!
