Sorry for the late answer. I missed the question somehow.

Conferences differ in what they offer, so it depends on your goal (and how much time and money you want to spend). If you want to talk to agents, then Sleuthfest (Florida) , Killer Nashville, Crime Bake (New England), and Love Is Murder (Chicago) are good possibilities. You have to look at the line-up to see if it includes two or three people you want to approach. To promote a book to fans, you want a conference that draws as many readers as writers. One of the biggest and longest is Bouchercon, which moves around the country. Next year it's in Raleigh in October. One of my favorites is Malice Domestic, which meets in Bethesda, MD, the first weekend of May. Magna cum Murder in Indianapolis also draws quite a few readers.

You'll find others scattered around the country. (less)

If I need to think, I may go for a walk, sit down with a pencil and paper, or let my subconscious guide me in my sleep. If I lack some essential information, I find it.

Why we needed Title IX before 1972

The fiftieth anniversary of Title IX, a landmark law requiring gender equality in schools receiving federal funds, reminded me of how little opportunity to play sports most females of my generation had. (Title IX changed much more than sports, but that’s another story.)

In my one-room school with roughly a dozen students in grades one through eight, we had no organized physical education progra

W.H. Auden
“You need not see what someone is doing to know if it is his vocation, you have only to watch his eyes: a cook mixing a sauce, as surgeon making a primary incision, a clerk completing a bill of lading, wear that same rapt expression, forgetting themselves in a function.

How beautiful it is, that eye-on-the-object look.”
W. H. Auden

Agatha Christie
“If one could order a crime as one does a dinner, what would you choose? . . . Let’s review the menu. Robbery? Frogery? No, I think not. Rather too vegetarian. It must be murder—red-blooded murder—with trimmings, of course.”
Agatha Christie, The A.B.C. Murders

W.H. Auden
“Murder is commoner among cooks than among members of any other profession.”
