Thriller Thursday Special: Thriller Extravaganza!

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!

With help from WANA friends August Mclaughlin, Catie Rhodes and Piper Bayard, I’ve got some AMAZING authors lined up.

    Sounds like a blast! Since I am just getting my feet wet over there, are we just supposed to reply in class discussion on those days?
    Thanks for bringing the link to the party!

    • Stacy Green says:

      Susie, are you talking about the WANA group? I’m not sure what class you’re referring to, lol.

      • susielindau says:

        Yep the Wana group.
        Is the class here or there?

      • Stacy Green says:

        Well, it’s not actually a class. These authors will each be doing a post, along with Margie Lawson, on various tips for writing thrillers. They’ll be taking over Thriller Thursday in August. So if you have questions for them, definitely comment here. They’ll also be doing giveaways, along with Kristen’s grand prize.
