Malice Domestic Recap

Malice Domestic is an awesome conference filled with enthusiastic fans. If you haven't been, I highly recommend going whether you are a reader, writer or both. Since I don't have a book out yet, I got to enjoy the conference from both perspectives. I also got a chance to get to know my fellow Midnight Inkers. For those of you who couldn't make the trip this year, I thought I'd share some photos and fun facts about some of the fascinating personalities behind the blog.

 Cricket McCrae and Alan Orloff  (Cheese is definitely not the way to his heart!)
Jess Lourey (who can and will give your book a new, improved but X-rated title) and Vicki Doudera (who should definitely write for Cosmo.)
Lois Winston (the mop dolls are truly adorable. If only we could talk her into making one in each of our likenesses) and Vicki D.

Mary Holmes, Beth Groundwater and Darrell James. (Three authors who make it look so easy!)
Mary, Darrell and Jessie Chandler (who, I must say, just generally rocks!)

Need to pitch our fearless leader Terri Bischoff on a new series?  The bar is definitely the place to do it!

 Jess and yours truly. Add Vicki D. and stir!!

Mary, Kathleen Ernst (as sweet as she looks) Vicki  and Terri B.
The lovely, spunky Deborah Sharp.
Maggie Sefton doing her thing.

Midnight Inkers are AWESOME!!

Aww, man, sorry I missed it. Next year! Thanks for posting the wonderful pics & commentary!

Alan Orloff said...

It WAS an awesome convention! I had a blast hanging out with you and the other MInkers!

Kathleen Ernst said...

Great photos! It was so much fun to have such a MInker contingent.

Robin Allen said...

I'm glad so many MInkers could make it. Looks fun, but exhausting!

Vicki Doudera said...

Linda! Great write-up and photos. It was wonderful to meet you and add yet another Minker pal to my list. For those of you who weren't there -- we were an awesome FORCE -- and when the rest of you come we will just take over the place. Mwa ha ha !

Beth Groundwater said...

Great photos, Linda, and you got them up so fast! I hope to post some from the conference on my personal blog later this week.

Deborah Sharp said...

Great to meet you, and we had such fun!! (PS: the close up shot of me reminds me that I should indeed wear make-up, even on that first travel day arrival ;-)

I love Malice and I agree with Linda, if you get the chance to, go.

Thanks for letting me hang out with the Minkers at dinner.
