Love is Murder News

The Chicago Area Love is Murder Conference is a mere month away! (February 2-4, Rosemont, Illinois).

I'm thrilled to be a part of the conference, and looking forward to meeting many people that I've only met in the gray halls of cyber.

Here is some fresh exciting news from the LIM newsletter:

"Love is Murder is happy to feature
something new this year!

On Saturday we will be featuring different demonstrations of interest to both fans and writers of the mystery genre.

Chicago Swordplay Guild will kick things off with an encore demonstration of the history and use of blades and armor, featuring swords, daggers, spears, and other weapons of Western hand-to-hand combat.

And look for Dr. Bill Ernoehazy to expound on the damage these blades could inflict to the human body. This will be of interest to anyone writing or reading historical fiction, or simply interested in the trauma caused by blades.

There will be a demonstration of a polygraph machine, how it works, how it is used, and what kind of information can be obtained by it. An expert will present a detailed program about this machine and hopefully will have time to include a demonstration of it.

Our third slated demonstration is on grapho-analysis. Find out from an expert how penmanship is analyzed and learn what kind of information can be gleaned from such an analysis. Find out what can be used in an investigation or a court of law."

Just some of many reasons why people should visit this terrific conference. Click on the link ( and check out all of the writers on the event schedule! It's going to be a very fun time.

I'll be there all day Saturday, and I hope to see many people!

Me, too, Deb! Let's do lunch and dinner together, if you're not already obligated. :)
