We’re talking about a conference, here, a convention, so don’t get the wrong idea! Although there is a certain amount of sleight of hand involved, mostly it’s work, details, budgets, like that. But it’s also a lot of fun, a kind of creative effort quite different from writing a novel. The kind of fun stuff you usually don’t get a chance to do
We know you love Bloody Words. If you have attended at least one, that’s a given. But think about having one exactly the way you want it: the guests you love to read and would love to meet in person; the amusing event you’d love to attend but haven’t seen done yet; the panel topics like the kind of subjects you and your mystery loving friends talk about some times but never really get into and anyway, what do the pros have to say about it?
Or maybe you’ve been admiring our program books. Everybody does. And maybe you have a secret hankering to try your hand designing one, or doing the cover, or writing a rollicking article about the Bony Blithe.
You can. You can do it all! All it takes is stepping up, raising your hand, holding your breath and jumping in! Especially if you live n the maritimes! We invite you. We entreat you! We dare you!
And you won’t be alone. The Board is with you. Wr ‘re sort of like Yodda but with better syntax and our ears aren’t hairy.
Join us in Toronto at the Hilton for the Oak Island Gangster breakfast! It’s on us.
Remember this. If no one steps forward, there will be no Bloody Words next year. And whose fault willthat be, eh?
