BY RT BOOK REVIEWS, JULY 09, 2010 | PERMALINK

At ThrillerFest this afternoon we got a chance to check in with some of our favorite authors about the projects they are currently working on (and what readers can look forward to seeing in stores next year). They shared their current projects and exclusive details for RT Readers.

 Alex Kava is continuing her Maggie O’Dell series with Damaged, which will be released on Tuesday, and next summer readers can follow Maggie to western Nebraska in Hot Wire. Kava says, “Expect barbed wire fences and sand hills.”

John Lescroart, who was sitting right next to Kava, chimed in, “Your title Damaged is extremely close to the title of my next release, Damage, which comes out in January.”

 Erica Spindler’s Watch Me Die will be out in May 2011. The story is set in New Orleans when “the ghost of Hurricane Katrina” revisits the city.

RT Reports From ThrillerFest

BY RT BOOK REVIEWS, JULY 09, 2010 | PERMALINK

Mystery writers gather together each year for ThrillerFest, a four-day conference hosted by the organization of International Thriller Writers. We were psyched to attend their fifth annual conference, which was held at the Grand Hyatt hotel, above the famed Grand Central Station in New York City.

Writers attend panels about the craft of writing, such as “How To Make Your Pulse Race,” as well as discussions about the business of writing, like the Friday-morning panel “How Do you Excite Your Editor and Get More Out of Your Publisher?” There were also workshops for fans of the genre like “Who’s Your Hero? In Fiction and in Real Life” and “What’s Love Got to Do With It.”

Lisa Gardner Top Picks Giveaway

BY admin, JUNE 30, 2010 | PERMALINK
