More B-Con Moments

Last night a tall man with a British accent joined our group at the bar while I was in the rest room. When I got back, I said, “I didn’t catch your name.” He shook my hand and said, “Lee Child.” I was surprised, delighted, and embarrassed that I didn’t recognize him. He gave us this great advice: “The most important thing you can do as a writer is to focus on the quality of the second book.”

The short story panel was excellent. Unfortunately, this picture cut out everyone but Sean Chercover. Simon Wood was a great moderator.  Other panelists: Dana Cameron, Jane K. Cleland, Toni LP Kelner, and Kristine Kathryn Rusch.

  1. There was some overlapping on the page I saw.
    My answer? No, the gender of the author or protag is not a factor my book reading/buying decision. I buy for protag profession (usually police or PI) and setting (international is my love). However, it does seem that my reading is biased towards male authors and male protags.

  2. Fun pictures, LJ. Keep posting. I’m living vicariously through you.

  3. It looks like a fabulous conference where everyone is having fun. I’d like to attend one of these years.

  4. Pages look fine to me, LJ. Could be lack of sleep. Or too much time hanging in the bar. I know, I know…there’s no such thing as too much time hanging in the bar at Bouchercon.

  5. L J Thanks for the posts, keep them coming so the rest of us can live vicariously through you this weekend.
    One day, I’d love to go to the Mauii writer’s conference, Bouchercon, and many more.

  6. I’m posting the first comment to see if I can figure out why these pages look so odd. My lack of sleep?

I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. The characters were compelling, the procedural work was dead-on, and the story was enthralling. Definitely recommended.”
~Michelle Gagnon, author of Boneyard
The author expertly intertwines multiple story lines, presents readers with fully realized characters that readers will feel they know, and keeps the action and suspense levels high. That’s a lot to expect from an author but L. J. Sellers delivers.” ~OverMyDeadBody
