October 23, 2016, Benjamin Thomas asked what I thought about emulating #ComedybookWeek with an event for Mystery and Thriller books. I was excited about the idea. We began to brainstorm and the picture of this huge event started coming together. A multi-platform blow-out event with authors, bloggers, and other media people working together to support this genre. Benjamin procured the www.mysterythrillerweek.com site and we were off.
In just one day, we had several authors on board and a writing specialist willing to not just provide copies of her books, but provide a hands-on workshop for writers through the hour hosting project on Facebook. Rayne Hall has experience and is willing to share her knowledge live on Facebook.
Once we saw that there was genuine interest Benjamin recruited Sherrie Marshall onto the team. Sherrie was a great addition and has spearheaded some creative contest ideas for the week. She is working on the newest contest opportunity and is excited to be able to announce it very soon.
J. Schlenker has created a badge for the inaugural participants for posting on their blog and websites. It looks amazing on an email too.
What else is needed to make this a huge success? Fans, bloggers, more authors, aspiring mystery thriller writers, aspiring narrators, and anyone that wants to learn writing skills technique from the best. So if you were inspired by the groovy badges, the potential to win the amazing contest prizes, to meet favorite and new authors, then Mystery Thriller Week is the place to be in February. Now is the time to sign up to enjoy all the perks and opportunities.
We already have some hard hitters in the blogging community and would love to see you added to the list along with Bookish Wormy, The Blithering Bibliomaniacs, The Suspense Is Thrilling Me and over 30 more.
Let’s get you signed up now! Official Sign up .
Once you are a participating author or specialist, you can choose an hour that is convenient for you and host your own Facebook event. Making it as special as you would like. It is your moment in the spotlight.
We will promote it with you and send out invitations to make it a success. Invite all your fans in to meet with you and find new readers and fans at the same time.
I hope you are inspired to join us, blast out announcements of the event on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and personal blogs. Share this with all your fans and friends. Without each component, this will not be the success that it has the potential to be. Book reviewers check out the list of books available to read and review. There are audiobooks being provided by participating authors and narrators like Jake Urry, the new voice in Thrillers and Mysteries.
Interviews are being scheduled and this could be your time to interview on of the almost 75 authors and specialists signed up thus far. Truly there is something for everyone. Feel free to ask questions. There is so much going on, it would take a massive blog post to cover it all.
I can’t wait to work with you all on #MTW!
