Killer Year 2008--Calling Debut Crime Fiction Authors

If you are thriller/mystery/suspense writer whose debut novel is being published in 2008 (or know someone who is), and are interested in becoming part of the 2008 Killer Year class, go to to learn more.

Killer Year began in 2007 as a group of debut crime fiction authors who banded together to help promote each other's work. In the end, the inaugural Killer Year class of 2007 included 13 authors from 8 different publishing imprints. Promotional efforts included the Killer Year blog, Killer Year website, a chap book mailed to several hundred independent booksellers, organizing Killer Year panels at various conferences and bookseller events, and compiling the very first Killer Year anthology which will be published by St. Martin's Press in 2008. For their hard work, the group has received major press coverage, radio interviews and feature articles as well as the sponsorship of International Thriller Writers (ITW). We're hoping the 2008 class will carry on the tradition with some great debut novels. So get ready, because 2008 is going to be another Killer Year.

For more details go to, and feel free to drop me a note with any questions. The application deadline is June 15, 2007.

I love that idea. Too bad the deadline isn't a little bit later. I think there's a chance my book will see publication in 2008; I'm just not sure I'll know by June 15, as my agent is just getting ready to send it out on submission now.
