Bouchercon 2014 final wrap-up

My Bouchercon posts have been updated with some panel pics and a Friday panel that got left off the original post.  All my Bouchercon and Long Beach pics are here on Flickr.

I had such a great time at Bouchercon, in downtown Long Beach and at the beautiful Renaissance Hotel, it's kind of hard to believe it was over three weeks ago that it was over and done with and I was back home. Right now I'm debating next year, which is in Raleigh, North Carolina, because I need to coordinate it with Writers' Police Academy, which has just announced they're not going to be in NC next year, but have yet to announce when and where they will be.  But I would like to go. I wish it could be in Long Beach every year. Such a great location.

Since Bouchercon relocates every year, they plan waaaaaaay in advance, so much so that they've already set the next four events:

Raleigh, NC (October 8-11, 2015)
New Orleans, LA (September 15-18, 2016)
Toronto, Ontario, Canada (October 12-15, 2017)
St. Petersburg, FL (September 13-16, 2018)

I can't recommend this convention enough. If you're a fan of mystery and thrillers - anything from whimsical cozies to hard boiled crime, from amateur sleuths to jaded PI's and detectives - Bouchercon has you covered.
