The April Edition of The Big Thrill

In times of crisis, we take solace in creature comforts—the familiarity of an old fictional friend, the opportunity to escape reality, if even for a few hours, or the friendly smile of encouragement from a literary idol. No question about it, the industry is shook. But writers are resilient, and in this issue of The Big Thrill, the authors of dozens of new releases share how they are weathering this storm. This month, Dawn Ius talks to editors, agents, and writers about the impact of COVID-19 on the thriller writing industry, David Baldacci and J. D. Barker give insight into how tragedy can fuel inspiration, Maxine Mei-Fung Chung, Jennifer Hillier, and many others share how they are adapting their promotional efforts to meet new marketing challenges, and Dean Koontz reiterates the importance of not believing everything you hear. Plus, we pay tribute to the Grandmaster of Adventure, Clive Cussler, with a look back on his iconic career. Our April issue is packed with enough articles to keep you busy throughout self isolation. Stay home, friends—and stay healthy.
