Bring "Thriller Fest" to NOLA ~ Vote Daily

International Thriller Writers, Inc is an organization of ~ you guessed it ~ thriller writers. :) Founded in June 2004 at Poison Pen Bookstore of Scottsdale, AZ.... by Barbara Peters and her 7 invited authors. In just a few short years, it has expanded into a well regarded association of amazing suspense, cliffhanger, spy novel writers. James Patterson (winner of the ThrillMaster honor at this year's convention), Alex Kava, Steve Berry, Clive Cussler, Lee Child, David Morrell, Michael Palmer, Tess Gerritsen, M. J. Rose, Gayle Lunds, David Dun and many more ~ to give you a taste of their membership.

"ThrillerFest" is held annually. It is a convention which is open to writers, fans, editors, agents & wannabe authors. Offering signings, workshops, cocktail parties, music, giveaways, awards, as well as a complete bookstore onsite.

The gathering is already set for New York City in July of 2008. However, the voting has begun for their "Thriller Fest 2009" location. There is no city more intriguing and thrilling than New Orleans! We need to bring more conferences, conventions, family reunions (HA!) to help rebuild the economy of NOLA.

As I am writing this, Nawlins is currently in the lead with 29% of the vote, followed closely by San Francisco at 26.7%. Chicago is in 3rd place with 12.7%. Spread the word to have everyone you know vote daily!
