Dedicated communities to the thriller genre

They say you can find anything on the Internet.  There seems to be one unfortunate exception.

As a reader and writer of thrillers, I have been utterly disappointed in my searches for communities devoted to this genre.  I have found exactly ONE, and this organization charges $95 per year to any participant who is not an author published by a *commercial* publishing house.

This bothers me.  So I post here a question and a solution.  The question: are there any other communities *dedicated to thrillers* that offer readers, writers, bloggers, agents, pets, what have you, a place to gather and exchange ideas?

If so, links please!  I'd love to participate.  If not, please find the first here.

If you read, write, or otherwise have any interest in thrillers, please stop by and become a member.  I will link your page, interview you, promote your book/art/agency, discuss your ideas, techniques and tricks of the trade, recommend a good read, and encourage others to do the same.  All that is required of you is an interest in thrillers.  So you can save your $95 for that forensics class you need to complete your next work.



  1. I'll risk asking what may be an obvious question: how do we become members? Is there an initiation? Does it involve melted candle wax?

  2. Lance, excellent question. To become a member, all you have to do is click the "Join this site" icon to the right and follow the blog. To maximize your interaction here, I have also set up a "New members start here" page (located on the top bar) where you can introduce yourself in the comments. This is the best way to let readers to know who you are and also for me to know how best to promote you on the site (if you desire.) The initiation ceremony protocol hasn't yet been signed off on by OSHA, so please stay tuned. Cheers,
