Bony Blithe 2020

It’s Time to Arrange Your Affairs

Early registration prize draw!
New book dealer

For those of you who’ve already broken your New Year’s resolutions, here’s one that’s easy – and fun – to keep. Resolve to come to the 2020 Bloody Words Mini-con/Bony Blithe Award Gala on Friday, May 22, 2020. We’re back at the High Park Club in Toronto. Space is limited, so register now. We have panels on a wide range of topics, a book dealer, lunch, the BB award dinner, and lots of opportunity to schmooze with old and new criminous friends. Note to authors: The sooner you register, the more likely you are to be on a panel plus, if you’re published by a traditional publisher, the easier it will be for our book dealer to get your books.

The registration fee of $75 gives you a whole day of criminous fun plus lunch and the award dinner. Visit our Registration page to join us.

LAGNIAPPE (updated!): n honour of everything St. Valentine’s Day (interpret that how you will, my criminous friends), we are extending the draw for the fun prize to anyone who registers for the BW 2020 mini-con to February 14, 2020. If you’ve already registered, your name has been entered.
