The Thriller Roundtable

Whether you’re a fan or an author, you’ll want to join the Thriller Roundtable discussions at The Big Thrill 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.

Check out what’s in store for this month. You won’t want to miss it!

August 6 – 12: “Do you enjoy films with authors as protagonists? Why?”
August 13 – 19: “How do you write, from the seat of your pants or are you a planner?”
August 20 – 26: “If a mystery is a tale about solving a crime while a thriller is about stopping one, how would you write a blend of the two?”
August 27 – September 2: “How do you raise the stakes to the next level?”

Authors, don’t miss this promotional opportunity! Participate in the Thriller Roundtable by contacting J. H. Bográn.
