Jubilee Jumbalaya

The Fifth Annual Jubilee Jumbalaya Writers Conference is this weekend, Saturday, April 5th, from 8am to 6pm. Held by Nicholls State University in Houma, Louisiana, the Jubilee has a reputation for being both fun and informative, and for serving a great lunch!

This year, I'll be giving two presentations. The first, from 10:30 to 11:20, is "Writing with a Partner," which I'll be presenting with my C.S. Graham writing partner, Steve Harris. Then, from 3:00 to 3:50, I'll be exploring the differences between "Mysteries, Suspense, and Thrillers."

There are many other speakers lined up, including Heather Graham, Laura Joh Rowland, Bobbi Smith, and a host of others. So if you're in the area, hope to see you there!

Wish I could attend. I went the first two years of the conference and loved it, but had to miss it last year...and can't make it this year, either. That conference has great information, warm and friendly people--not only the hosts, but also the speakers and attendees--plus a wonderful venue. (The Terrebonne Parish Main Library is fabulous.) And so far it's been beautiful spring weather every year.

Hope you and Steve have a great time. Think of me while you eat that jambalaya. (Okay, okay, I know because of your food allergies you won't eat the jambalaya, so think of me while you watch other people eating the jambalaya--because I'd sure like to taste it!)

I had hopes to make it to this conference but after my research conference marathon yesterday I ended up sleeping 11 straight hours and didn't have it in me for another conference.

Good luck and hope you enjoy.

Charles, Charles, if you'd only known what you were missing! We had dinner with F. Paul Wilson. Not being a horror or sci fi reader myself, I said, "And what do you write?"

Sounds good. Wish I lived close enough to make it.

I'm sure you'll all give riveting talks. Wish I could be there. Best to y'all! Have fun. :)
