clear skies - etc...

OK I know you know the weather - because it's only been a couple of hours since my last post - but there was something I'd wanted to tell you in the last post - and forgot! So I decided to post twice today. I go days without being able to write anything, but today - after doing 100 pages on the next book - I find myself blogging twice.

Go figure.

But I wanted to tell you about an event I'll be at later this week. On Friday (after the Ikea kitchen is delivered) I'll hop in the car and drive to Quebec City...one of my favorite places on earth. Because of this amazing crime writers/readers festival that's going on. The first annual (we hope) QuebeCrime! Most of it, over the weekend, will be held at the Literary and Historical Society, in the Morrin Centre, in Old Quebec. The setting for BURY YOUR DEAD.

I can't tell you how thrilling it is to know that magnificent anglo library will be the scene of this great celebration of crime writing.

And QuebeCrime has the most wonderful line-up. For instance, my event at 7pm on Friday night (at the nearby St Andrew's Presbyterian Church) will also feature Ian Rankin, Denise Mina, Anne Emery and John Brady. Lawrence Block will also be at the festival, for an event on Saturday, at the Lit and His - and some of the other crime writers are Andrew Pyper, Hilary Davidson, Ian Hamilton, John Farrow and others. Very exciting!

It's a great excuse to come to Quebec City! If you'd like tickets you can call: 418-654-9523 or email: tickets@quebecrime.com

It's going to be wonderful. So looking forward to it. Hope to see you there.

Oh, when I read the title of your post I thought it was about the investigation into the Quebec construction "mafia" or the threats apparently made about the construction hiring practices. Truth is stranger than fiction, or at least an inspiration for it, I guess. Glad it was about something else that sounds like a lot of fun! Wish I could be there!

Love your blog. I am hoping to have a "Three Pines" vacation next summer. Read your comment about coffee in Sutton, and have explored Bed and Breakfasts in the area. It looks really good. Appears we could drive from St. Johns, MI in 2 days easily, and stop in Toronto and Monteal, as well.
Great news on the Goodreads choice. I am subscribed to Goodreads, and couldn't agree more.
