Welcome! Like the book of the same name, this blog is an eclectic collection of Sherlockian scribblings based on more than a half-century of reading Sherlock Holmes. Please add your own thoughts. You can also follow me on Twitter @DanAndriacco and on my Facebook fan page at Dan Andriacco Mysteries. You might also be interested in my Amazon Author Page. My books are also available at Barnes & Noble and in all main electronic formats including Kindle, Nook, Kobo and iBooks for the iPad.

Meeting Fans and Making Friends

One of the most fun things about being a published fiction writer is attending book fairs, Sherlock Holmes conferences, mystery conventions, and the like. I get to meet folks who have read my books, and folks who might want to read my books.

Last October, I was really fortunate to be on an all-star Sherlock Holmes panel at Bouchercon in Cleveland. D.C. Hawkins, who attended the program, was inspired to dip into my work. He recently filed this review on Amazon.com: 
I saw Dan Andriacco on a panel at Bouchercon and decided to read his works in order. His first Sebastian McCabe - Jeff Cody novel, "No Police Like Holmes," did not disappoint. It is a well crafted mystery that is witty and just plain fun. The Holmesian references offered a unifying theme and added an extra layer to the fun. By filling the novel with characters obsessed with Holmes, Andriacco showed classic deduction in a modern setting. 
This October, I'll be attending a similar, but smaller and more intimate mystery convention -- Magna Cum Murder, Oct. 25-27 in Indianapolis. I don't know yet whether I'll be on a panel.
