The O'Brady's Bunch

Heading to Corydon, Indiana to see some of my favorite people this weekend. Didn't get to go to Bouchercon or Murder & Mayhem in Milwaukee this year so I'm hitching a ride to the hoosier state for Frank Bill's The Savage release party. As with previous events for Mr. Bill the festivities will be held at Beef O'Brady's restaurant and pub and in that locale I've had drinks and words with a metric fuck-ton of talent including... Donald Ray Pollock, Matthew McBride, David James Keaton, Kirby Gann, Chris Deal, Richard Thomas, Chad Eagleton, C.J. Edwards, Aaron Michael Morales and Scott Phillips, plus folks like Tim Hennessy, Stacia Decker, Lou Perry, Robb Olson, Livius Nedin, Dakota Taylor, Rod Wiethop... just off the top of my head.

Hope to see you there.
