We covered ThrillerFest 2018 just two weeks ago. It was our SEVENTH YEAR IN A ROW covering this annual event from International Thriller Writers and we keep coming back because it is such a great event for authors at all stages in their careers, attracting really talented and kind people. Everyone we meet here is always so kind and generous with their time, advice, and their books!
Each year there is a different Thriller Master. Last year it was Lee Child, author of the Jack Reacher series (see our interview with him here!) This year it was George R. R. Martin, author of the ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ series that HBO’s Game of Thrones is based on. He spoke on several panels, giving great insight into his career, providing funny anecdotes from book signings (he once had -4 people at a signing before he became famous), and was the guest of honor at the annual banquet, where he was the subject of the musical parody sketch from authors Daniel Palmer and Brad Parks (I look forward to their performance every year).
