Tonight, a few of my writing buddies decided to take a road trip with me to the Northern District Library in Toronto to visit with the Sisters In Crime: Toronto Chapter and listen to my Thrillerfest writing buddy talk about kidnapping and ransom. K.J. Howe has recently released her debut novel called The Freedom Broker, which explores the dark world of elite kidnap negotiation and recovery. What a fascinating topic for me.
I've decided to do it all again!
This is where I'll be from Sunday, July 8th - 15th, 2018… in New York City at Thrillerfest 2018
with these three magnificent people, plus many other amazing thriller authors.
ThrillerFest XII is coming!
Early Bird Pricing is on right now, until midnight on October 31st, 2016.
Go to THRILLERFEST XII to get more details.
Do you read or write novels in the Thriller genre?
If so, look at the Blockbuster lineup of amazing Thriller authors who will be attending this conference:
So, you are a writer and you have written the ultimate kickass novel... what are you waiting for? Go pitch that novel to an agent or editor, or someone who will help you get your novel out into the world for readers to purchase, take home and snuggle into a comfy chair reading YOUR book!
How do you make that happen?
During the week, the International Thriller Writers hosted a special event on Thursday afternoon called Pitchfest. Imagine between 300 to 400 writers who anxiously want an agent to represent them for their yet-to-be published novel, all standing in somewhat of a meandering line in the hallway outside of the five ballrooms on the third floor of the Grand Hyatt Hotel. It’s a huge crowd and it seriously makes your tummy queasy, just thinking about elbowing these people out of the way to talk to an agent, who will probably hate your idea anyway and say: “No. I’m not interested in your novel.”
All I could think about was trying not to cry, when I got rejected.
