this was the place to be.
first let me just say that i spent two hours laughing my ass off. a lot of funny stories going around, none of which i can repeat here.
i was in the final wave of writers. wished i'd gotten there earlier. too late, i spotted a few writers heading out the door. i'd really hoped to say hi to anthony neil smith, who, i must say, looked pretty dapper.
here are a few of the people there during my shift:
robert alexander -- check out his very cool book video for rasputin's daughter.
David Housewright -- edgar winner and all-around nice guy. His new book, PRETTY GIRL GONE, comes out in May. He also has a story in the upcoming TWIN CITIES NOIR.
Pat Dennis -- one of the funniest women in the twin cities.
Erin Hart -- wrote lake of sorrows, which i hear is amazing.
gary bush and chris everheart both have stories in the upcoming twin cities noir .
owners pat and gary did another great job. i don't know how they juggle everything, but they do and it all goes smoothly. yes, the place was packed but it wasn't shoulder to shoulder. did i mention that i laughed my ass off?
