THE ROOKIE Rambling the Rounds and Ranks of BOUCHERCON

R O O K I E  at  B O U C H E R C O N ?

~ Absolutely*Kate

Oh yeah, first time, virgin appearance, musing and schmoozing rough and tough elbows with crime-time greats. Noir Stars and killer-thrillers of our shadows' days.

All cliches come real in the zeal of this rookie ramblin' rounds of the ranks at
Bouchercon, this year in Albany's state of NY crime-mind: 

What? You've seen these guys around?

    Lookin' mighty forward to meeting up (again and first times) with Authorfolk we all know 'round our reading pleasures and the wiles of WebTowne:

Oh yeah.

Those who gut-know how the words should do more than snap, crackle and pop in serial tales . . .


'Best Bud' Kevin Michaels ~ 'Hero' Matt Hilton ~ Robert J 'Pally' Randisi ~ slinky lady Kate Laity ~ Noir-at-the-Bar star Eric Beetner ~ Moonlighter Vince Zandri ~ big lug o' tough Les Edgerton ~ secretly a Berlin, CT boy (shhh), now big West-coaster Joe Clifford ~ 'Uncle' Raymond Chandler ~ sharpest shooter of 'em all, who taught me and Nelle Callahan swell, Dorothy Parker ~ showman RapSheet schmoozer Ali Karim ~ new pal about New England'ville, ShotGun Honey's editor Chris Irvin ... and now me, Absolutely*Kate.   Uncle Ray Chandler and Miss Dorothy Parker will be there ... in how I shadow my spirit of intrigue. 

Yeah. Who hasn't read or read of these loaded luminaries?  

Watch for my 
hot commentary in the COMMENTARY, as this Lucky'13 BOUCHERCON rolls its dice at what comes out naughty or nice from these luminaries I know I'll be hangin' with.

Will Rogers out-genre'd his genre, but I'm thinkin' he'd have plenty to say about this hot shot time up in Bouchercon as September slings herself. 

" If you want to be successful, it's just this simple. Know what you are doing. Love what you are doing. And believe in what you are doing." -- 

Me?  Them?

Gonna post some quips and quotes, cool shit and hot stuff at the end of each day at the bar -- er, a few panels -- where insider insights may prevail . . . swell.
