Bloody Words and AIEP 2012 Date Changed

by 

Cheryl Freedman of the Bloody Words conference in Toronto reports a date change for the 2012 conference which will also host the 2012 AIEP congress. The dates are June 1 to June 3, not the previously announced dates. The conference will still be held at the Toronto Hilton and its overall theme is thrillers.

She also reports that they are looking for an international Guest of Honor, so if you have suggestions please contact her. Their Canadian Guest of honor will be Linwood Barclay.

Cheryl writes,

We'd prefer someone who writes macro-thrillers (i.e., the plot has an impact on a country or the world) because Linwood writes micro-thrillers (i.e., the plot has an impact on the family). No vampires, please (just in case there are vampire thrillers, heaven forfend).

For anyone interested, the 2011 Bloody Words will be held in Victoria, British Columbia, June 3 to June 5.
