Backyard Volcano and Other Mysteries of the Heart won the “Best Short Story” category at the conference. Exciting for us!
Killer Nashville is a conference for international mystery writers. In addition to U.S. authors you’d expect at an event such as this one, writers from Australia, Canada, England, Iceland, Ireland, and Japan made the trek to Nashville.
Keynote speakers and guests of honor included Jeffrey Deaver, Otto Penzler, Ellery Adams, Anne Perry, and J.A. Konrath. Writers who entered the contests ran the gamut from best sellers for New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and USA Today to traditionally published authors, indie authors and new writers.
My second Nikki Garcia Thriller, Coyote Zone, was a finalist in the “Thriller” category. So it was a fantastic year for Alamo Bay Press, Bob and me at Killer Nashville!
