Top Ten Reasons to Attend Magna this Year
(a la Dave Letterman - you know, the famous Ball State graduate!)

10.    You get to meet some of the world's best authors in one location.
9.       The cost of the entire conference is far less than a root canal, or maybe even a filling.
8.       The autumn foliage along the White River and around Ball State campus is beautiful.
7.       Muncie, Indiana is filled with wonderful, friendly, smart people. Wait until you meet the folks at the Horizon Convention Center!
6.       "Survivor" or "Dancing with the Stars" isn't on that weekend.
5.       Meet the author, buy the book, read the book, share the book.
4         You don't need eHarmony to find lots of people you have something in common with.
3.       It's the only crime writing festival actually held on Halloween.
2.       We missed seeing you because of last year's hiatus.
