Virginia mystery writers will introduce readers to the wealth of mystery around them, and how readers can benefit from this. The panel will overview “famous,” popular, and new Virginia mystery authors and major mystery novels set in Virginia, including the 50 Shades of Cabernet anthology featuring authors Rosemary Shomaker and Kristin Kisska, supported by novelist, historian, and winery owner Mary Miley who wrote the book’s foreword. They’ll be joined by Fred Shackelford, author of the novel The Ticket, about a lotto winner who hatches a devious scheme to protect his money. Panelists will also discuss the benefits to readers of connecting with mystery authors — from inclusion in book launch parties, social media and in-person conversations and relationships, and receipt of advance chapters, to a spot on an author’s “street team.”
