I’ve gotten my two shots and it’s been two weeks since the last shot so I’m ready to go. I’m registered and definitely plan to be in New Orleans for Bouchercon. It is time for you to start planning in that direction also. It wouldn’t near as fun without the ol’ Bouchercon crowd (which always welcomes newcomers). For me, just seeing Ali Karim again will be well worth the trip. I can’t wait to have breakfast with him (and his entourage) at the Ruby Slipper. He’s this year’s Fan Guest of Honor. If you register and find that you cannot go, your registration fee will be refunded so there is no risk in registering now (see details on Bouchercon website). I hope to see you all there.
