Swag Bag Fun

Malice Domestic is a fan conference for mystery readers. This was the third year I’ve attended, and it just gets better and better.

I enjoy meeting readers, and I like to make swag bags to leave in the hospitality room.

Then I was selected to participate in Malice Go Round, and I wanted to make additional swag bags for the participants of that event. Malice Go Round is like speed dating between readers and authors.

So I took on a project that was about more than I could handle. I decided to make beachy ornaments because of my beach setting. I’ll be honest. Some turned out better than others, but like every shell is unique so is every ornament.

And I have to thank Tim for helping me find and clean the shells and for dying the string.

Tim also went to Maryland with me and helped me transport all my stuff.

It was good to see my agent, Dawn Dowdle, and many friends. I also got to meet many mystery readers. Kate Jackson, Heather Weidner, Korina Moss, Ruth Hartman, Chris Romeril, TJ Krieg (beachbumbookworm) and Desiree DiFabio were just a few friends I connected with.

If you have an opportunity to attend Malice, I urge you to go. You won’t be disappointed.
