This summer, not only am I attending When Words Collide, I’m participating on two crime fiction panels:

Friday, August 12 at 5 p.m. Mountain time, I’ll be a panelist on Western Voices Hitting the Shelves.

Saturday, August 13 at 3 p.m. Mountain time, I’ll be chatting with other panelists about Running the Obstacle Course–all about the external and internal obstacles that keep us from writing.

Do join us. It’s free but you must register. Go to www.whenwordscollide.org/ for information on how to register, programming, merchants table, etc. It’s going to be a blast!

Here’s how the organizers describe WWC: “The festival is designed to bring readers and writers together in a celebration of the written word. Up to 10 tracks of programming, beginning at 1 PM on Friday and running through 5 PM Sunday, offer informational, educational, and social activities covering a wide spectrum of literature including Mystery, Science Fiction, Fantasy, Romance, Historical, Literary, Script-writing, Poetry, Comics, and Non-fiction.”
