Kicking off the New Year with a fresh reading challenge? Good news! We’ve got the perfect thrills to add to your TBR pile, starting with Grady Hendrix’s HOW TO SELL A HAUNTED HOUSE. He talks about the inspiration for his new novel, the economic subtext of haunted house stories, and much more in this Between the Lines feature by April Snellings. Damyanti Biswas chats with Dawn Ius about Indian noir, trying to find joy in the act of writing, and why THE BLUE BAR was her most challenging project to date, and New York Times bestselling author Brad Taylor shares insight into his latest page-turner THE DEVIL’S RANSOM. Plus, Fatin Abbas checks in with us from Africa, Neil Nyren interviews Michael Bennett in this month’s BookTrib Spotlight, AudioFile picks five audiobooks that should be on your listening device, and we get Up Close with Maureen Johnson, James Grippando, Tammy Euliano and more. The January issue of The Big Thrill is live now—and you can read it here.
