Fun at Bouchercon 2012

Last week was Bouchercon, but it was also my fourth blogoversary. While everyone thought they were attending the world mystery convention, I knew it was really my blogoversary party, where I celebrated with some wonderful people I got to meet only after starting this site.

By now, you may have read many recaps already, so I’ll just post some photos that represent how much fun I had. I got some authors and friends to make silly faces for my photo-booth app. It gives me strips of four just like a real photo booth, but when I went to upload them here, it got really crowded because 20 strips = 80 pictures.

So I had to select one frame from each strip that’s my favorite, which was extremely hard to do because there were so many hilarious shots. Sometimes the winner came down to which one wasn’t blurry from us laughing so hard.

I hope you enjoy the gallery (click on each to see slightly larger image). And that last author? No, he wasn’t at B’con this year, but I included the photo because I needed even columns.

    “They’re moving in!”

    I’m glad you survived the B’con boobs. And thanks for including us all in your party. It was fantastic fun.

    Love these! Such a fun change from standard stand-up-straight-and-smile pix. Thanks for sharing with those of us who would rather have been there than moving! (although now that we’re settling in, the move was worth it)

    You never have to explain yourself to me about including gratuitous Robert Crais, PCN. Thank you. I love these fun and goofy photos, and that’s a very lovely photo of you and Christine. What smiles!!

    Thanks, everyone! One of my favorite things about doing this is that all the participants jumped right in, no questions asked.

    Shell, thanks for being understanding about my Crais bombing. I knew you’d have my back.

    Excellent stuff top to bottom (or boob), though for my $ it’s you and Karin Slaughter for the win!
