September 14: Featured guest Aaron Joncich will speak about forensic toxicology in the areas of blood and urine testing. He will also speak about investigating crime scenes where home-made drugs were involved, his years of court room testimony, and 'date rape drug' crimes.
October 12. Come together to celebrate the spookiest time of year, and get ideas for adding horror to your writing. We promise thrills and kills.
November 9. What are the delights of being a recently published author? What are the nasty surprises? Sisters (and Brothers) in Crime who were first published in 2018 or 2019 will share their experiences and journeys to publishing their first book.
December 14 Best-selling author Ellery Adams has written thirty-five mystery novels. She's a whiz at social media promotion and will share her expertise at Twitter pitches, promoting in conjunction with other authors, dos and don’t of websites, and engaging with readers (how much and how little). She will leave a large chunk of time for questions. Ellery will also speak about the querying process and the value of conferences.
