Mystery-Thriller Saturday: An Afternoon of Chaos, Killing, Crime, and Kidnapping
Kepler's Books and Peninsula Arts & Letters presents:
Mystery-Thriller Saturday: An Afternoon of Chaos, Killing, Crime, and Kidnapping

Saturday, June 21, 1:00 - 5:30PM

Sponsored by Peninsula Arts & Letters, Kepler's Books, Mystery Writers of America (NorCal Chapter) and Sisters in Crime (NorCal Chapter)
 
1:00 p.m.: The "Rules" of the Publishing Game: The Times They Are A-Changin'
Barry Eisler in conversation with Keith Raffel: traditional publishing versus self-publishing and more.

2:30 p.m.: Face-off: Thriller versus Mysteries. (What's the Difference and Which Is Better?)
Mystery writers Catriona MacPherson and Cara Black will face off against thriller writers Alan Jacobson and Sheldon Siegel in crime fiction's version of the Ultimate Fighting Championship.  This panel will be refereed by Laurie R. King.

4:00 p.m.: Down and Dirty Reviews
Are you writing your first mystery or a thriller? Bring the first page and we'll throw them in a hat. We'll pluck out as many as we have time for, and you'll get expert commentary from Judy Greber (aka Gillian Roberts), John Billheimer, and Terry Shames.

5:00 p.m.: Socializing
All the authors will be around talking about writing and their books. They probably can even be convinced to sign a copy of one of their brilliant novels for you!
Special bonus: If you are an independently published author, contact us and (until space runs out) we will arrange for you to have a table where you can sell your books.

And finally, announcing the Kepler's Prize! If you are an unpublished crime fiction author, submit the first 25-pages of your manuscript. The winner will be featured in Kepler's window when published.
