The International Thriller Writers has decided to postpone their Grand Central Terminal book signing – “The Grand Thrill” – for a year. The inaugural event will now take place on July 11, 2013 — not July 12, 2012.
They made the decision for several reasons. Having a mammoth signing involving a large number of authors in Grand Central is a complex and expensive undertaking. To make sure it is the fabulous, flawless, and memorable event they would like it to be, the ITW Board felt they needed more time to work out the logistics.
One of the goals of The Grand Thrill was to promote the ITW anthology, Love is Murder. The book will now be celebrated, along with its contributors, at the ThrillerFest Publications Cocktail Party at the Grand Hyatt. That event will be Friday, July 13, 2012, and will give ThrillerFest attendees the opportunity to meet the authors and have their books signed.
