Kari's Kave: Road Trip.....

I am so excited I can barely sit still!

Tomorrow morning I hit the road with my favorite CP's Barbie Jo Mahoney and Danielle LaBue.

Where are we headed you ask....

To the Crime Bake in Boston!

This will be our very first mystery conference ever. We've been to plenty of romance conference, but never mystery ones. I figured it's about time we met the people in our world. There will be plenty of workshops and guest speakers and even a fun banquet Saturday night.

You KNOW I'll be taking lots of pictures to share on Kari's Kave next Wednesday....

I still have so much to do today.

Get hair cut and colored.....check!
Clean house.....check!
Do everyone's laundry.....check!
Pack.....check!
Run to grocery store....check!
Make homemade sauce and meatballs....check!
Lose my mind.....already there :-)

Still.....Thelma and Louisies are hitting the road come sunup...no matter what!

Anyone else going to Crime Bake?

What are you favorite mystery conferences and why?

I want to go to Malice Domestic this April. I've heard that is a great conference for people who write Cozy Mysteries. I will do that for sure if I don't win Best Amateur Sleuth of 2011. If I DO happen to win that amazing award, then I will go to the RT Convention in Chicago in April instead. I'm just still so thrilled and stunned to have even been nominated with all the awesome cozy mysteries that came out this year.

Okay, so much to do and NO time.....stay tuned for next week when I come back with all the mystery scoop and plenty of pics to share :-)

My favorite mystery conference-New England Crime Bake. This will be my second year attending.

Kari Lee Townsend said...

Good to know, Lindsay! I'm sure it will be a blast. I can't wait.

Lindsay said...

Don't forget you promised to do a tea leaf reading

Anita Clenney said...

Hey, I'm so jealous of you guys. I want to go. Seriously, I hope you guys will have a blast. I KNOW you guys will have a blast. Maybe I'll join you next year. If someone thinks about it, grab me one of the programs with the ad we all did. I would love to see it.

Lindsay said...

And we, at least, I will take pictures

Kari Lee Townsend said...

LOL trust me, Lindsay, after the reading Barbie and I did....you won't WANT me to do a reading.

And Anita, I will grab and program and mail it to you. Just email me your snail mail.

Wish you were going!!!

Just wait for the pics. Trust me, Lindsay, I am a picture maniac.

Kari: I can't say how jealous I am. I love Crime Bake. Not going this year has me totally bummed. I was going to be there as you know. Plans just get in the way. I want to see LOTS of pictures and hear the tales. Beware, Liz has been known to dance ON the tables- that's without a drink egging her on.

Sorry, I am late for this party. I had to babysit all day. Notice the HAD to!! I got to spend all day with my adorable granddaughters.

I,too, will be a packing fool tomorrow. And CB is the only mystery conference I have ever attended, but buddy, it was a doozy.

Can't wait to see you guys.
