In da apple

I will be in New York this week for the Edgars, and I will try, really I will, to write a blog-a-day. However, if I go silent the entire week, worry not, it will just mean that there was a technological glitch and I will return when I’m back in front of my Mac.

The Edgars, for those of you who haven’t been there, are to the mystery world what the Oscars are to the film industry. Of course, taking into account that we’re writers and publishers rather than actors and producers, the resemblance is more in our own minds than any objective eye would find, but we dress up and we have a good time bad-mouthing the banquet food and complaining about the format of the programming, and clap loudly and then go for drinks with friends.

But before that Thursday night gala, we have various parties and seminars, and those are what I will tell you about during the week.

If my laptop is amenable to such fripperies.

    As I finish my first mystery novel I dream of the year that I can get away to attend the Edgars, either as a nominee or as an attendee. Perhaps when that happens I can join you for a drink after the events. Have fun in the Big Apple.
