There is nothing better than Maine in the Fall... unless it's those two weeks of summer we get in August!
Kiss of Death PresentsIts Annual Weekend Retreat
“THINGS THAT GO BUMP IN THE NIGHT"
Friday, October 3 to Sunday, October 5, 2008
Portland Regency HotelPortland, Maine
Sugar maples dressed in vibrant red, oak leaves turning yellow and shading to bronze. The nip in the evening air that warns winter isn’t too far off. A hint of wood smoke, kids back in school, all alone in the house ... hmmm, there’s a strange noise down in the basement. Hmmm, there it is again, sounds like someone’s ... digging? Maybe staying up late to read “Salem’s Lot” wasn’t such a good idea.
Whatever your interest - romantic suspense, mystery or thriller - share your passion for the written word and a great plot with fellow enthusiasts. Whether you’re a new writer or polishing your sixth manuscript, there’s no better event than Kiss of Death’s annual retreat - and no better place than New England in the fall.
Come join us for thrills, chills and spills with:
Special Guest and Bestselling Author LISA GARDNER presenting “Writing Romantic Suspense and Developing Villains”
Homicide Lieutenant Danny Agan Need help fleshing out that crime scene? Here’s the man to ask. A favorite COFFIN workshop presenter, Danny will answer all your questions and some you never thought to ask! And you’ll marvel at his arsenal of weapons.
