Happy New Year!
Sure, I am a few days late. I have been traveling and not able to post new posts. I had some special blog posts for you over the holiday by some special MTW authors and I hope you found some new people to read and follow. I have chosen some amazing authors to post guest articles so I hope you enjoy seeing them this month. You have already heard from Geoffrey Monmouth a new author from Wales, John Nicholl, and you will be hearing more from authors like Steven Perkins, Jack Kregas, a few women mystery writers that I can’t name just yet and a couple of extra fun surprises. January should be a fun month.
Everyone that knows me, knows by now, that I am super excited to be involved with Mystery Thriller Week You may not, however, know that I am reviewing almost 40 books for the event. That is nowhere near the number Benjamin Thomas is reading. That means I will be holding on to my reviews on the mystery and thriller books until February 12th – 22nd. With the books I have garnered to read, I can tell you I am finding some wonderful writers that really love to bring the thrills, chills, and mysteries to life. I have cozies, psychological thrillers, serial killers, whodunits, amateur detectives, surly detectives, environmental thrillers, anthologies, romantic suspense, and good old FBI with terrorists ready to go, raring to be read, and itching to be reviewed. I have some tucked away, a few scheduled, one or two in the reading process and the rest are lined up one after another to be next on my list. But do not fear, I will get them all finished before the scheduled date.
With that being said, I assure you, I will be posting other types of book reviews this month and I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoy sharing my joy of books. I have some amazing children’s books, a romance or two and some interesting non-fiction to share. Plus a few for NetGalley and Blogging for Books. It should be a fun month of reading.
One of the best parts of being on the events team of MTW is organizing and bringing to light some new best-selling indie authors, as well as best-selling traditional authors, along with brand new authors, and seeing them work so well together. It is wonderful to see the mentoring, the exchange of ideas and the social interaction of all these like-minded, yet totally unique individuals.
The best announcement I can make is that if you dash up to the website www.mysterythrillerweek.com you can join in as a super fan and be included on all this interaction. You will be given front row seats to all the events in the comfort of your own home. You will also be given a free book by one of our best-selling authors. This offer is good until January 9th.
To be totally frank with you, we can’t wait to welcome you into the MTW family. So happy 2017, the year of the Mystery Thriller Week and you.
