Love Crafts and Mysteries? Malice is for YOU!

If you love mysteries and crafts, you won’t want to miss Malice Domestic, Saturday, May 1, 2010 at the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Arlington, VA. Mystery authors from all over the world will gather to meet their fans and talk about their books. Plus, there’s a live auction with cool stuff. Here’s a sampling--

* A collection of Peel & Stick stamps, a certificate for a free personalized stamp, and 7 colorful ink cartridges---a $400 retail value!

* A customized, one-of-a-kind scrapbook page by Joanna Campbell Slan, author of the Kiki Lowenstein Mystery Series. (Priceless. One like it sold last year for $140.)

* A basket from the Killer Hobbies blog sisters. There are 16 great books in this basket, and all sorts of crafting supplies. You’ll have tons of fun keeping busy with the KH Blog Sisters’ loot! Valued at $200.

(I'll post a photo of the customized page and the KH Blog Sisters' loot soon!)

A day pass is only $125. The Saturday pass includes the chance to bid in the live auction and the Agatha Banquet (only a few seats are left). The Sunday pass includes the Agatha Tea. Go to to sign up.

Authors attending will include Dorothy Cannell, Katherine Hall Page, JoAnna Carl, Elaine Viets, Rhys Bowen, and Mary Higgins Clark. For a full list of the authors go to

Hi, Joanna. Thanks so much for promoting Malice Domestic! And we're so glad you're returning this year. Our fans love to see you.

I did want to make a clarification to something above: Our live auction will be held Friday night, April 30th, beginning at 9 p.m. Our silent auction will run all day Friday and part of Saturday, with the last chance to make bids at (I think) 1:30 p.m. Saturday (but don't hold me to that time). I don't know which donated items will be in the live auction versus the silent auction. My best suggestion to interested folks is that they take Friday, April 30th off from work and come to the whole convention. It's going to be a blast. (Says the very modest program chair.) Our full schedule is available at

See you soon!
