ThrillerFest 2016

July 5—9, 2016, I will be participating in the International Thriller Writers’s (ITW) annual conference known as ThrillerFest in New York City. Day 1 is spent at FBI HQ in lower manhattan. Day 2 and part of 3 are CraftFest—a series of concurrent sessions led by best selling thriller writers who will be sharing the lessons learned in honing their craft.The balance of Day 3 is devoted to PitchFest, a gathering of agents, editors, and publishers—you pick the ones you want to pitch your novel(s) to, and then it’s like speed dating. Days 4 and 5 are ThrillerFest sessions—a series of concurrent sessions led by writers, agents, publishers, as well as technical, military and spy experts. The evening of Day 5 is the Awards Banquet ceremony, a gala affair that celebrates the accomplishments of the best thriller writers. Click here for more information. 

I’m looking forward to speaking with some of my favorite thriller writers such as Lee Child, Brad Thor, Brad Taylor, David Baldacci, and other. I’ll share my experiences in these pages after I return.
