When chocolate and flowers aren't enough...Love Is Murder!

I hope you're planning to attend Love Is Murder, the fabulous mystery conference!

The conference begins THIS FRIDAY, February 3rd and runs through Sunday, February 5th. Yes, it's Superbowl Sunday, but Love Is Murder laid claim to that weekend first, years ago!

Anyway, take a look at the headliners and at all the wonderful events planned by visiting the website here: LOVE IS MURDER 

Because this mystery conference is being held in Chicago (okay, Rosemont. Close enough), and the organizers are lovely, kind-hearted people, they've named me Local Guest of Honor for this year's festivities. I'm very excited.

If you're in the area Thursday evening (checking in early, perhaps, or you simply live nearby) please stop by the book signing event from 5:30 - 7:00 at the Intercontinental Chicago O'Hare (beautiful hotel!). I'd love to see you!!
