I'm in New York reporting live from the Thrillerfest/Craftfest writing conference we're sponsoring. There are so many famous writers here, it's unbelievable. The first day of the conference was yesterday and I met Lee Child, James, Rollins, Eric Van Lustbader, Steve and Liz Berry, Kathleen Antrim and more.
I'm getting ready to go back and cover the show today, but I wanted to post some pics from the conference.
Funniest quote overheard at the conference so far: "What's the difference between a mystery and a thriller? About $100,000." This is attributed to Tess Gerritsen, one of the sponsors of the conference and a founding member of the International Thriller Writers organization.
