Malice 30: A photo essay

So, my planning skills…aren’t always the best.

This post should have gone up the week after Malice Domestic 30, which was a phenomenal event (I got to meet another Mysterista – Becky Clark!). But I was busy. I had previously scheduled guest.

But I took lots of pictures and I wanted to share. Therefore, I present my photo essay of Malice 30, albeit a tad late.

We started off with a group dinner of old friends.
The lovely Alice Loweecey in great period garb, looking way to perky for this early on a Friday morning.
And you know it’s going to be a good conference when you’re greeted by Dru Ann Love’s awesome smile!
Malice-go-round is always fun – and Bruce Robert Coffin knows how to rock a fascinator!
Art Taylor can rock a fascinator, too.
My first panel – nominees for Best Short Story including Barb Goffman, Gretchen Archer, Deb Goldstein, Gigi Pandian (winner), and Art Taylor
And then the nominees for Best Contemporary Novel: Louise Penny (winner), Margaret Aaron, Shawn Reilly Simmons, Annette Dashofy, Allison Brook, Ellen Byron
Toastmaster Catriona MacPherson welcomed us Friday night (side note: I’m hiring Catriona the next time I need a Master of Ceremonies for anything).
Bloggers extraordinaire – Kristopher Zgorski (BOLO Books) and Dru Ann Love (Dru’s Book Musings)
I got to see my name in the program ad (and check out Keenan Powell’s cover top right)!
All my Pittsburgh peeps dressed up and ready for the banquet.
Obligatory photo of the decadent dessert.
We wrapped things up with the New Author Breakfast.
I had a great time in Bethesda, but there’s no place like home!

  1. Great commentary, Liz! I didn’t get to attend this year so I especially loved the photos (also, the elapsed time made them easier to view without FOMO pangs).
