NYC’s ThrillerFest over

So I’ve been filled with envy and regret in recent days, perusing my Facebook page and seeing all those people I know and love (or at least interact with on FB and enjoy their books) at ThrillerFest in New York City.  Here’s why:

  1. Firstly, I do love me a thriller.
  2. The author line-up was phenomenal.  Lee Child, Karen Slaughter, John Sandford.  And more.
  3. And it’s not just for fans, it’s got great stuff for writers, including agent pitch sessions.   Think CraftFest and AgentFest.
  4. Finally, it’s in New. York. City.  Like many, I heart New York.

Of course, all the good stuff doesn’t come free.  As with the Broadway vacation I took with my son in the spring, it adds up quickly.  The cheapest thing was to attend only the Awards banquet at $197.  Attending the whole kit-and-kaboodle (ThrillerFest, CraftFest, AgentFest and the banquet) was $899 if you make your plans and pay the fees nine months in advance.   Must clear my calendar for July 2013 and save my pennies.
