In September my friend Pam and I flew to Minneapolis to attend Bouchercon World Mystery Convention’s first on-site event in three years. I sat on a panel and handed out my author cards, but the main purpose of our trip was to present Calgary’s bid to host Bouchercon 2026. Tourism Calgary recruited Pam and me to co-chair the venture.
The fall book promotion season is almost here. Will events be largely online, as they’ve been for the past two and half years of this pandemic? Or are people eager to return to in-person festivals and conventions? My guess is both.
