The Thriller Roundtable
Whether you’re a fan or an author, you’ll want to join the Thriller Roundtable discussions at TheBigThrill website, where each week a new group of authors discuss everything from what they love about writing thrillers, to what they’ve learned, and more.
Here’s what’s in store for September!
September 1 – 7: Authors cringe at mistakes in their novels. As a reader, do you fling a book aside when you spot an error or stop reading after spotting some inaccuracy in technology or place?
September 8 – 14: Russia still plays a key role in thrillers in thrillers. What are some surprise cities that might take center stage in the future?
September 15 – 21: Describe how your readers have shaped your books?
September 22 – 28: Writers strive for unusual methods of murder. Do writers try too hard and, if not, what are some of the most memorable?
September 29 – October 5: Dialogue can be tricky, as the author has to give each character a unique voice that is also distinct from his or her own. How do you do it?
Authors, don’t miss this promotional opportunity! Participate in the Thriller Roundtable by contacting
