Brigadoon Once More

Another Crime Bake has come and gone, another sighting of Brigadoon, now gone in the mists of time. As usual, it was a lovely time with good friends in the mystery writing community, as well as fans. Jointly sponsored by the New England chapters of Sisters in Crime and Mystery Writers of America, Crime Bake is a learning experience, a networking opportunity, and a wonderful time.

We kicked off Friday night with our panel on publishing (self/Indie/other), which was well-attended (about 75 people). 

Many folks came by in the next couple of days to say how much they'd learned from it. Judging by that, I guess we were a hit!

As usual, Tom Lyons was there with the New England Mobile Book Fair to sell the books of all the attending authors on panels.

Here's our Guest of Honor, Ann Cleves, with Ang Pompano

And with Coralie Jensen
