MWA Hot Ticket Event at Bouchercon

MWA/Bouchercon versus Comic Con on Charlaine Harris

At Comic Con, 800 fans showed up in hopes of scoring one of 150 tickets to Charlaine Harris’ afternoon book signing session.

At Bouchercon, 10 lucky fans will get the chance to spend about an hour with Charlaine in a small group setting. (How much time do you think those 150 fans shared with her?) We’re talking ten fans, one hour. And you can win one of those tickets now.

In fact, thanks to the Mystery Writers of America (MWA) and especially its Midwest chapter, 10 fans of Lee Child, Michael Connelly, Joseph Finder, Sue Grafton, Carolyn Hart, David Morrell, Sara Paretsky, PJ Parrish, SJ Rozan, and Wendelin Van Draanen will also get an hour with their favorite author. It’s called the HOT TICKET event.

YOU CAN WIN ONE OF THE FIRST FIVE TICKETS BEFORE BOUCHERCON EVEN STARTS! Go to the MWA Midwest Chapter website ( and click on the HOT TICKET event. It will take you to a webpage that explains how the contest works and how to complete an online entry form. We’re asking you why YOU should be the one to win a ticket to spend time with your favorite MWA author. Entries will be judged on their creativity. Winners will be announced mid-September.

But if you don’t win one of the first five, don’t despair.

THE SECOND FIVE TICKETS WILL BE AWARDED IN A DRAWING AT BOUCHERCON. Visit the MWA booth at Bouchercon for an entry form into the drawing for the second set of five tickets for each author. It’s that easy! Fans can win only one ticket to any event, so 110 people at Bouchercon will get this amazing opportunity to meet a favorite MWA author.

Check out the MWA Midwest website and enter now. And spread the word about the HOT TICKET event!

I entered...and I'll blog about it, I guess, but that means I'll have more people to compete against! ;) The hardest part was picking just one to enter for. What a fabulous list of authors to choose from!
