Sunny here.

The deadline for the conference rate for the Mystery Cruise is coming up fast! We're hoping now that tax season is over people who are interested, curious or just want a memorable sea experience will put down the $250 deposit for a berth, the other half not due until August--totally refundable if plans don't pan out. Beverly is the contact at

We sail from Los Angeles on Nov. 14-21. Ports-of-call are Puerto Vallarta, Mazetlan and Cabo San Lucas. Seven days of fun in the sun. The cost is less than most conferences--think about what a hotel and all you can eat costs at a regular conference. Add 3,000 potential book buyers, music and shows every night, and sunny MEXICO!

Billie Johnson, Marilyn Meredith and Dennis Griffin have signed up, plus several people from PSWA. We also have Hollywood agent Ken Sherman available for pitch sessions.

Although pitched as a "Mystery Cruise," this is a conference for all writers. We used "Mystery" because those of us planning the cruise are authors who write mystery and true crime. There will be panels on editing, marketing & promotion, setting, developing characters, dialog and pitch sessions.

If you have friends or relatives who aren't readers (heaven forbid!) they can still enjoy a cruise at this incredible price. The conference is free to all on board.

Do you really want to sit at home this November? Brrr!

Hubby and I will be celebrating our 60th anniversary on the cruise and my sis and her hubby are coming along. I think this will be a lot of fun! Why don't you join us?
