We’re late! Website maintenance pushed our June issue a few days behind schedule, but we hope you’ll agree—the content is worth the wait. This month, Dawn Ius goes Between the Lines with ITW Best Hardcover nominee Joe Clifford, Kate White talks to bestselling thriller authors about life imitating art, and for this month’s Africa Scene, Michael Sears chats with Peter Kimani about a thrilling new anthology, Nairobi Noir. Plus, we get up close with D. P. Lyle, J. A. Jance, Jon Land, Iris Johansen, and many more authors of bestselling thrillers. The June issue of The Big Thrill is live now!

Virtual ThrillerFest XV (2020) Is On!

Due to the pandemic this year, we’ve canceled the in-person ThrillerFest Conference at the Grand Hyatt in New York City this July. The health and safety of our attendees is our top priority.

But we have fantastic news! We are offering a virtual conference so our attendees can remain safe in the comfort of their homes yet still participate in the learning and camaraderie that is the hallmark of the annual conference of the International Thriller Writers. No travel, no hotel stay, but an even more extensive array of bestselling ITW authors who can help you polish your thrillers and top drawer New York agents and editors to whom you can pitch—along with attractive prices!

We have an outstanding array of guests and publishing professionals, with this year’s event including a Free Debut Authors’ Presentation, Free ITW Author Videos, and a Free Awards Presentation.

Our Mega CraftFest, Master Class, Pitching Sessions, Consulting Sessions, and CareerFest will all be offered this July.
