To survive—and thrive—in today’s ever-challenging publishing landscape, writers must not only be persistent, but also resilient. Being an author isn’t for the faint of heart. In this issue of The Big Thrill we talk to writers who truly embody those traits, including formidable bestselling author Jacquelyn Mitchard. In her Between the Lines feature by Dawn Ius, Mitchard shares how she has weathered the steep ups and downs of her literary career. On the international front, we check in with Hans Rosenfeldt, Karen Hamilton, and Nana-Ama Danquah. Plus, April Snellings goes behind the scenes with Gregg Hurwitz on his latest option deal, we get up close and personal with Lisa Gardner, Nikki May, Alafair Burke, Claire Douglas, William B. Scott, and dozens more authors who continue to practice persistence and resilience. Want to learn how you can too? Take a look at Dr. Bryan Robinson’s “resilience how-to.” Celebrate the New Year with us—the January issue of The Big Thrill is live now!
