PSWA Conference

For all of you thinking about going to the Public Safety Writers Conference, do sign up before October 31 as that's when the early bird registration fee ends.

We had such a great time last year and I know it's going to be even better this year.

Joyce Spizer Foy has changed her topic idea to Putting Zing Into Your Screenplay but she's also going to cover screen play writing.

Steve Scarborough is coming back but hasn't told us what he's going to tell us about but it will be something to do with forensics.

Simon Wood is a multi-published author in mystery, thriller and horror and he's going to tell us how to rev up the suspense.

Michael A. Black (those who went this year met him, he's still an on-duty cop) is also a multi-published mystery and other genre author, and he's going to tell us how to develop a plot in one hour.

And of course OTP's own Michael Orenduff author of the wonderful Pot Thief will be showing and telling us all about what makes a good cover and what doesn't, along with the help of his wife.

Oh, and fun, fun, Sunny will let us know how much sex is too much.

We've already got some panel ideas and we'll figure out a way to use everyone who wants to be on a panel.

The registration form is up at http://www.publicsafetywriter.com

Let me clarify: my topic is "How Much Sex Is Too Much IN THE MYSTERY GENRE."

(because those who know me know that as a single, red-blooded woman, I believe there is no such thing as too much!)
