Panel Registration Deadline!

Did you know?

Only those registered for Bouchercon 2017
AND
Those who ask to be on a panel, will be considered for a panel.

July 1st (17 days away!) is the deadline for consideration.
Registration at Bouchercon is not a guarantee of a panel assignment.  We will try to give as many as we can a panel slot. Unfortunately, the number of requests is usually far greater than the spaces available, so not every request can be met.

As the sage once said: “You can’t win if you don’t play.”

Indicate your interest today!
