Robert McClure presents Deadly Lullaby to crime fiction fans at Bouchercon 2015
Robert McClure, author ofDeadly Lullaby, is on the return trip fromBouchercon 2015, the world’s largest crime fiction conference, held this year in Raleigh, North Carolina. McClure views this year’s Bouchercon conference as his most enjoyable yet. The highlights included special sessions that Bouchercon planners arranged for new authors to introduce themselves and their book to hundreds of crime fiction fans. One such session, called “Speed Dating”, allowed authors to personally interact with 90 crime fiction fans, six at a time over a 2-hour period. McClure was gratified to meet one of his new fans after that session, when the fan recognized him the next day in the conference hotel’s elevator. After telling McClure in the midst of others on the elevator how much she likedDeadly Lullaby, she whipped out a black Sharpie pen and asked him to autograph the back of her metallic eReader. This gal now has the very first in-person autograph by Robert McClure — we hope it’s worth something someday!
McClure also met up withRobert Pepin, the editor and French translator ofDeadly Lullaby, in preparation for publication byCalmann-Levy in France in hardback, paperback and digital in 2016. More to come about this and other highlights from McClure’s ventures at Bouchercon 2015 after he returns home. Stay tuned!
