#MTW Mystery Thriller Week is Growing! Join Us Now :)

knife-update

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.

During planning meetings with those interested, we have come up with several contest themes and Andrew Christie and Jennifer Alderson are working together on those.

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 WormyThe Blithering Bibliomaniacs, The Suspense Is Thrilling Me and over 30 more.

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.

  • The Book Blurb:

    When professional house-sitter Lila Emerson witnesses a murder/suicide from her current apartment-sitting job, life as she knows it takes a dramatic turn. Suddenly, the woman with no permanent ties finds herself almost wishing for one. . . .
    Artist Ashton Archer knows his brother isn’t capable of violence—against himself or others. He recruits Lila, the only eyewitness, to help him uncover what happened. Ash longs to paint her as intensely as he hungers to touch her. But their investigation draws them into a rarified circle where priceless antiques are bought, sold, gambled away, and stolen, where what you possess is who you are, and where what you desire becomes a deadly obsession

    My Rating:

    My Review:

    The Collector by Nora Roberts is a book that took me to one of my favorite subjects, missing antiques. Antiques that have a notorious history and a list of interested parties. The antiques in this story are my most favorite antiques to read about. Trust me I want to talk more about them, but I am one of those reviewers that hate a spoiler. I will just tell you it is yummy, delicious and beautiful antiques. After you read the book, email me and we can discuss!

    The police are curious about the nosy neighbor that saw a murder through binoculars. When she sees a woman die from her loaned apartment, she is drawn into a serious circle of the victim’s friends and family.

    Lila Emerson is a nomadic house-sitter. She is a professional and has quite a following. She doesn’t intrude in people’s lives, cabinets or personal spaces. As the deaths keep growing, the mysterious circumstances place fear into Lila. She becomes involved in the search for facts and clues when Ashton Archer becomes involved. He and Lila have quite the chemistry. Ash is an artist and he wants to paint her. She is a writer and a house-sitter.

    The playfulness of Lila is so enjoyable in this suspenseful book. I, like Ash think her brain is so clever and fun. I think I relate to her buckshot analogy.

    The plot is intricate and detailed. It is also so beautifully artistic. The words are so full of vibrant life befitting the writer and the artist that they are written for. I again am super impressed with the descriptiveness of Nora’s work. when she puts someone in danger, I was close to tears. It is so vivid.

    The villain in this story is so evilly demented. That murderer is the most chillingly, cold, and calculating person ever.

    As far as Ash and Lila are concerned. They are so lovable. Both are so real and funny together and comfortable with themselves. It is a rich lovely romantic story and compliments the suspense so well.

    Recommendation

    If you love romantic Suspense​, This is a wonderful book to sink your teeth into. The story is full bodied. The bad guys are BAD and the good guys are GOOD. This is another 5 star reading for me. I just loved it. This book reminds me why I have read so many Nora Roberts books.
