Listen, when it comes to the mainstream bestseller lists, one particular genre stands tall. So much so, it’s probably seen as the most ‘respectable’. It is, of course, the thriller.

Not only do thrillers make authors and their publishers very rich, they also make the most money in terms of film and TV rights, generating vast revenues worldwide. Thrillers are also in hot demand for translation, serial and resell rights. Authoring a series of thrillers can literally catapult your career and your earning potential to the stars!

Just look at the success of Dan Brown, David Baldacci, John Grisham, Jeffrey Deaver, Lee Child, James Patterson, Patricia Cornwell, Kathy Reichs, Tess Gerritsen, Jonathan Kellerman, Michael Crichton, Sue Grafton, Dennis Lehane - the list literally goes on and on - all of whom make a very respectable living crafting taut, psychological suspense fiction.
