My Rating: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
Thank you, Robbie Cheadle from Robbie’s Inspiration for nominating me for this award. Robbie was sweet enough to nominate me for this as I was recuperating from Mystery Thriller Week. I really appreciate you thinking of me.

I was so honored to be asked by Yvonne Mason to be on her online radio program. She is a mystery/thriller writer in her own right, and I was excited to say yes. I am starting her book The Mad Hatter this evening and I can’t wait.
The hour-long event was so fun. Once I put my nerves aside. I am not the most outgoing person, but I am in line for the most talkative award. The interview was about my writing as Sojourner McConnell and I was able to share the story behind The Path of the Child. I was also able to discuss Mystery Thriller Week and my WIPs .
Surely by now, you have noticed this preoccupation with a little something called Mystery Thriller Week. An event I am working on pretty steadily as it grows around us. Finding my voice while reaching out to authors, narrators, publicists, specialty craft writers, bloggers, reviewers, and fans has been eye opening. It has been delightful.
What wonderful people there are on this planet. There are people that also dread getting out of the house and interacting with others until they do it, then they have fun and enjoy the moment. Once they return home it seems surreal that so much fun was had while away from the computer and out in the midst of others.
That is how this event feels to me. I am reaching out to strangers,people that I admire, people I have never heard of before but they have a book that draws me in. So I reach out. I write an email that I hope doesn’t sound pushy or fangirling. There seems to be a middle ground, I aim for that area. Those are the moments I am enjoying reaching out to people. Nice people, responsive people, friendly people that happen to all love thrillers and mysteries. It is a wonderful discovery.
I am blown away by the magnanimous gestures of authors giving away their products to fans that show up. Providing books not just once and not just electronic, but signed books and audiobooks. Authors that are willing to log into Facebook and spend one or more hours in personal meetings with new readers and old fans. Want to participate as an author and have your books celebrated and your brand placed in the public eye for eleven straight days of fun events? Any authors interested in participating with the 120 fine and pretty good looking bunch of authors already signed up then click here to join in.
It is a beautiful thing watching this little idea that Benjamin Thomas, Sherrie Marshall Spitz, and I discussed become a growing full blown event. With humor and creativity and many favors pulled from friends like J. Schlenker and her amazing artistry. Eeva Lancaster and her enthusiastic creativity is a new friend that has endeared herself to us all.
Then there are the bloggers and vloggers that are willing to read unknown authors to provide an honest review. They are also willing to share their pages with writers over the course of these eleven days in February. Reaching out to interview established authors and new authors alike. Bloggers that are willing to play fun creative games during the week so that even more prizes can be given out to fans. Once again supporting the authors with humor and their own writing talent. Want to be included in this creative celebration of the books and authors of Mystery and Thrillers, then click here.
Goodreads and Amazon Reviewers that do not blog, but like Diane Lynch ,write heartfelt and honest reviews and post them out of their own love of reading. Not budding writers or poets, but lovers of the written word and how it makes them feel. Want to be included in the Goodreads review festival going on during MTW 2017, then click here .
This is my joy and my passion that forces me to ask everyone that reads this post, do you want to be involved? Are you a super fan? Do you love to review thrillers, cozy mysteries, detective stories, psychological thrillers, spy thrillers, historical mysteries, natural disaster thrillers?
This is where you get to stand up and shout I love mystery and thrillers and I am a super fan. I am a lover of the adventure, intrigue, and fear. I want to spread the word about these books over every media platform I can. I want to participate in the largest online Mystery and Thriller event in the world. I want to hop from blog to blog finding new favorite authors in my favorite genre and I want to learn about every planned event, on Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, YouTube and blogs from all over the world. I want to be a super fan! I want to sign up today! You are in luck, all you have to do is click here and be included in all the news about the event.
