How can we help each other? That’s been the burning question in my Suspense, Mystery, and Mayhem group on Kristen Lamb’s WANA Tribe.
So many things to discuss: craft, book launches, social media, marketing–the list goes on. And of course, the million dollar question: what do readers want?
I want to help my writing friends and connect thriller and suspense readers to new, exciting authors, so I decided to go to the experts. The thriller writers who’ve been there, done that, and have hard-earned experience to back up their advice. So in August, I’m bringing you Thriller Writer’s Extravaganza!

Five Thursdays devoted to thriller writers and readers. Bestselling thriller authors giving us the tricks of craft, advice on plotting a series, and the secret formula to figuring out what readers want. And don’t worry, thriller readers! You’re the most important, and we want you to meet new writers, so there will be a special post dedicated to awesome up-and-coming thriller writers.
Of course, no extravaganza would be complete without prizes, and I’ve got them lined up for you. For readers, every author will be giving away a copy of their book, and you can also win a $25 Amazon gift card and a bag of yummy healthy goodies courtesy of August McLaughlin (U.S. only).
