Not long now until CRIMESCENE WA!

I’m so excited to attend this convention for a number of reasons. Linda and the Spiral Events crew are great to work with, the invited guests are all people I’m looking forward to meeting, the programme is FASCINATING, some of the attendees are friends, and Twelfth Planet Press are running a whole stream within the convention.

So much goodness, and I get to come and see my family in Perth afterwards!
Go to the CRIMESCENEWA website for a full download of the programme. And over to the Twelfth Planet Press site to see their stream, which includes an opportunity to pitch to the publisher.

If you’re in Perth please spread the word. This is going to be such an interesting and fun weekend!
