Hello Cleveland!

Despite the fact that my novel CHOKE HOLD is nominated for an Anthony Award, I was pretty sure I was not going to be able to make it to Bouchercon. This last year has been a tough one for everyone I know, and I'm no exception. I just couldn't afford the trip.

You guys all know that Pop Faust has been having a lot of health problems recently, and that I had to take on a tremendous amount of care-taking, shopping, driving and other responsibilities in order to help him out.

Well, as a thank you for taking care of him, my awesome family has gotten together and chipped in to pay for my airfare and hotel at B-con! So a zillion thanks to the far-flung Faust clan. Couldn't have done it without you guys.

Anyway, I won't be on any panels but I'll be in the bar, so feel free to come on over and say hello.

On an interesting side note, I'm on a skin-tight deadline for my current tie-in project (soon to be announced) so I'll be working in the mornings and doing the B-con thing in the afternoon and evenings. This will be my first time trying to rack up a serious word count while traveling, and I'm very curious to see how it goes. I don't have a laptop, so I'll be using Pages on my iPad with a keyboard dock. Wish me luck.

Writers: Have you ever be able to write on the road? Any tips or tricks to share?

It will be good to see you there.
I like writing on the road. Pages works great. Something about being away from the comforts of home makes the words flow better.

Writing on the road tips...? A bottle of wine! That's my tip and my trick, helps you write on a wall with crayons in the middle of nowhere I say.

Oh, I'm not a writer, per say, I just write, so tip and trick idea may be null and void here.

But seriously, good luck with your project and best wishes for a speedy recovery for your Pop Faust. :)

Cleavland is a great place to visit. You must know how much would be the Airfare when going there and all you have to do is to find more cheaper one.
