Just a quick reminder that our author Dennis Palumbo is not just signing books at Vromans this Sunday in Pasadena at 4:00, but he's also teaching a workshop on Writing Mysteries. Here's the description:
For those interested in writing whodunits, plotting is often the most daunting aspect of the narrative. Fear no more. This workshop will take the mystery out of writing mysteries. Moreover, you'll learn that the key to writing a good mystery or crime story is an understanding of how each of the characters' distinct wants and needs collide with those of the other characters. When done right, a good plot reveals character, and good characters make the plot compelling. Whether you're writing the coziest of British-style mystery or the edgiest of hard-boiled thriller, this informative, entertaining workshop is for you.
Dennis is the screenwriter of the film My Favorite Year and our new book, From Crime to Crime, which is getting great reviews. Dennis is a wonderful, funny guy. He's also a full-time psychotherapist, now, so you might get some free shrink-age. So, come out and meet him, learn some cool stuff and enjoy an afternoon in Pasadena.
See you there!
