    Exciting! I can’t wait. This will be my third year at Thrillerfest/Craftfest. I find the Craftfest presentations very stimulating and informative – brimming with great info and techniques I can pass on to my thriller-writer clients!

    This is amazing. The best line up since I’ve been going. Craft Fest is the best writer’s event I have ever attended. Great for both emerging writers and published authors.
    See you there!

    I can’t wait to attend! Still have to register though. Wondering if I should just get a day pass or if I can afford to stay for the entire conference.

      CraftFest is special but the entire conference is fun. Most all of the CraftFest teachers are around all weekend so don’t be afraid to walk up and introduce yourself and ask any questions you want. ThrillerFest is very relaxed and the authors are always happy to chat.
