We hope everyone has enjoyed a fabulous summer.  Now that September has arrived, we’re already gearing up to make ThrillerFest VIII an unforgettable conference.  This year, spotlight guests will include 2013 ThrillerMaster Anne Rice, 2011 ThrillerMaster R.L. Stine, T. Jefferson Parker, and Michael Connelly.  Stay tuned for further announcements.

ThrillerFest VIII offers something for everyone:

CraftFest—NYT Bestselling authors will share their secrets on the craft of writing.

AgentFest—Over 50 top agents and editors in the business will be on hand to hear your pitches.

ThrillerFest—Network with other writers and meet industry professionals at the fabulous panels and workshops.  Special guests will be announced soon.


Starting today, you can register for the Extra Early Bird pricing (last year’s Early Bird pricing), a one-time opportunity to save on registration because you are a prior attendee.  Please sign up soon, because this opportunity only lasts until midnight EST (Eastern Standard Time) on September 30th, 2012.  Just go to and use the discount code TF8SAVE (please be sure to use caps, as the system is case sensitive) for these unbelievable savings.

Also, we’d like to introduce our ThrillerFest team for the upcoming year.  D.L. Wilson will be the new VP of National Events, D.P. Lyle, MDreturns as our CraftFest Director, Boyd Morrison returns asAgentFest Director, and Kimberley Howe joins us again as Executive Director.

We’re really looking forward to seeing you next July 10-13, 2013 in NYC for ThrillerFest VIII.
