The April Edition of The Big Thrill

Overnight success is rare in the publishing world—more often it requires years of persistence, patience, practice. It’s about playing the long game, says this month’s Between the Lines author, J.D. Barker. In this issue of The Big Thrill, genre greats like David Baldacci, Cate Holahan, Elizabeth Goddard, and Paula Munier share insight into what it takes to find writing success, debut authors Debbie Babitt, Kris Calvin, and Jessica Hamilton give us a glimpse into their publishing journey, and Larysa Rychkova provides an exclusive look at her new thriller as part of ITW’s First Chapters program. Africa Scene takes us to Kwei Quartey’s latest novel, and we get up close with Elle Marr, Adele Parks, Clay McLeod Chapman, Wendy Heard and dozens more writers who are chasing their publishing dreams. The April issue of The Big Thrill is live now!
