Greetings from historic Williamsburg Virginia!
EPICON has been great...lots of informative panels and excellent networking. The conference hotel's setting is in a woodland, lots of evergreen trees and others that still need a little warm weather to leaf out...still a breathtaking scene.
Mary Montague Sikes lives in this neighborhood, so she joined the event today, and even took me on a personal tour of the historic area. Huzzah!
And, as the headline says, Mike Orenduff's THE POT THIEF WHO STUDIED PTOLEMY took top honors in the Mystery Novel category.
So, tomorrow I head for home...very tired, but also very happy. What a thrill that three OTP books were finalists! And amid some formidable competition.
Seems as though the EPIC board is cooking up something special for next years meeting...details are TBA.
