I must confess I've never been to a writers'conference - time and circumstances always seem to get in the way. However, now that I've read Autographs, Abductions, and A-List Authors by J.L. Wilson, I think I'm going to have to get myself to one just for the experience!
Of course, I'm sure that the murder, mayhem, jealousy, ambition and just plain fun that Ms. Wilson portrays so well in her book are not on the schedule at most conferences (except perhaps for the fun). Even so, the book is a witty and engrossing read with characters verging from the insane and paranoid to the plain weird and downright sexy. The plot is engaging and even plausible, offering a smorgasbord of methods to murder your competition.
And, most intriguing of all to myself as a seasoned murder mystery reader, I didn't guess who the villain was until the very end. Mind you, I'd have been happy to hang out with fictional author Bea Emerson and the very attractive Detective L.J. Remarchik as they raced to solve the puzzle before a murderer sent Bea to that Great Publishing House in the Sky....
And her interactions with the hero (who is a middle-aged cop) had me laughing out loud... especially the way the author handled the sex scene. (That's all I'll say so as not to ruin it for anyone!)
Of course, as a writer myself, I got even more chuckles out of the storyline, which involves not one but TWO author murders, all during one long weekend at a writers conference. I chuckled my way through this one!
