ITW Contest

Here's a fun contest from the International Thriller Writers --

150 Thrillers!

It's a thriller lover's dream - the chance to win 150 novels by some of the biggest and best thriller authors in the business. That's right, 150.

Imagine receiving books written by Joseph Finder, Tess Gerritsen, John Lescroart, Gayle Lynds, and David Baldacci for free. Then multiply that by thirty, because they represent only five of the 150 books you will receive if you're the winner in the International Thriller Writer's "150 Thrillers" contest.

The best part? Just by entering you'll begin receiving the free ITW newsletter, a monthly email newsletter that contains loads of information about upcoming thriller novels, thriller authors and thriller news.

All you have to do is go to, or email before February 15th and sign up to get the free ITW newsletter. That's it.

Once you've subscribed, you're entered. The winner will be picked randomly from all entrants, and will receive 150 thriller novels from some of the top novelists writing today. Three runner-up entrants will each receive a copy of the 2006 Thriller Anthology, edited by James Patterson. But really, everyone who signs up to receive the ITW newsletter is a winner.

So go on, sign up. You know you want to.

Please note: one entry per person, and, as usual, ITW will not share your email information with anyone.

For further information, contact M.J. Rose at

Print Print Print

Well the readers are done with Night Wing and thus far feed back has been great!

Thanks to those of you that took the time and effort to help me in this newest adventure -- Greg, Mark & Jas. A special thanks to Lora for her excitement after reading the first half -- it really helped to get my rear in gear on the rest of it.

I've printed out the hard copy and am final editing through that. All I can say is wow. It's amazing how different things look in print than on the computer screen. I find myself saying...

"We've been through this five times and never caught that!?"

So this week's tip is -- no matter how done you think you are print your story and go through it again. Snuggle into your favorite chair and get cozy with those old-fashioned red pens. Chances are a lot managed to slip by you in the electronic version that you...and editors...will note in the final copy.
