Where are the Wickeds?
Next weekend, November 6-8, the Wickeds and the Wicked Accomplices are ALL at the New England Crime Bake. Many of us are on the committee. Julie is finishing up her two year term as co-chair, Edith is wrangling volunteers. Jessie honchoed both the advertising sales and the manuscript critiques and Barb was on the programming committee. Sherry and Kim are on their way up from the MD/VA/DC area. Liz and Jane are coming in from Connecticut and Sheila from Mass. The Crime Bake is our home conference and played a role in all of our mystery writing journeys. We can’t wait to see each other and to see some of you.
On Saturday, November 14, Barb and Liz will appear with a whole host of thriller and mystery writers at the Mission K-9 Rescue Tribute Gala in Wakefield, MA. The purpose of the Mission K9 Rescue Gala is to bring awareness and raise money to support the Hero Dogs who have served our country and communities so bravely. The foundation provides monetary, transportation, adoption and medical assistance for retired military and contract dogs. Tickets are still available.
