A Killer Year

Did you feel that earthquake yesterday? Maybe not, but trust me, you will. It's not the kind of earthquake that shakes for a while and goes away. It started Wednesday morning...actually started on Tuesday (see JT's comment)...hell, it's been building for the past several months now.

Every year sees another group of debut authors make their appearances. But I don't know, 2007 just seems different. Okay, I know. It seems different because I'm one of those debut authors. But that's not what I mean. See, several of us have been slowly developing friendshps that we've used to support each other, share information and learn together. Now we've decided to make it official. Watch out the Killer Class of 2007 is coming.

Yeap. We have our own website. More to come soon. Jason Pinter, JT Ellison, Sandra Ruttan and I have official declared 2007 A Killer Year.

If you're a debut thriller/crime/mystery novelist whose first book is coming out next year, you're in. Just email Jason your information at

Our goal is to work together to get our names out there. We have a helluva lot better chance of getting recognition together than we do on our own.

Join us. It's going to be a blast. And it's going to be a killer year.

Sounds like a great idea, Brett!

So, all I do is write a thriller, get it agented and sold and debuted in 2007 and I'm in?
Hmmm...When do the Geeky Humorists in Need of Representation meet?

Brett, don't forget Phil Hawley! (As if you would). According to him, his book is coming out next March. (And it's damn good so far, if I may say so...)

Thanks, M.G. I have a feeling you won't be unrepresented for long.

Tammy, have definitely not forgotten about Phil. Let him know about it yesterday. Glad to hear you're enjoying his book. I'm jealous. I can't wait to read it!
