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
J.H. Bográn.
