Karen (xkamx) | 341 comments Poisoned Pen is holding a multi-author cozy event on May 9, 2015. (PP is in Scottsdale, AZ -- part of the greater Phoenix area.) Some details are below. The link takes you to the event page on the PP web site.

For a couple of years I attended an event sponsored by The Poisoned Pen book store (and publishing) called CozyCon. The events gathered together a who's who of Cozy writers (Jenn McKinlay, Juliet Blackwell, Avery Ames/Daryl Wood Gerber, Carolyn Hart, Victoria Laurie, etc.) to discuss their latest books, cozies in general, writing, etc. The events were held at the public library and featured panel discussions along with Q&As. They were interesting and a lot of fun. The events included lunch and the authors joined attendees at their tables allowing for personal conversations. I was ready to make it an every year event.

According to an April newsletter I received, this event is replacing CozyCon this year.

*Death on Demand*: a cozy party with Carolyn G Hart, Jenn McKinlay, Kate Carlisle, and more…
