Got to spend some time with friend and former teacher Lee Child at the Harrogate Crime Writers Festival. He makes a remarkable commitment to fan accessibility and had just jetted over from NYC after doing several appearances at #thrillerfest the week before. Best piece of writing advice I ever got from Lee was that writing is like music and you should read your work out loud to make sure you have the rhythm right.

TrishB Very cool 👍🏻 5y

With my good friend and fellow GRRM fan, Martina Cole, at the Harrogate Crime Writing Festival. I had the book autographed for her at #thrillerfest and finally had the chance to deliver it. Martina is a natural storyteller both in print and in person. She had us all entranced and in stitches with her great stories well into the night. She is warm and kind and just a pleasure to spend time with.

I was totally shocked and honoured to win the Thriller Award for Best First Novel for #thefreedombroker at #thrillerfest last night. I wasn‘t sure they were really calling my name and it hasn‘t even sunken in this morning yet! It was an unforgettable and magical evening, made even more so by the friendship of my ITW family, the support of my husband #rjhowe and the warm congratulations of this year‘s Thrillermaster, George R. R. Martin.

So incredibly proud of my wife, #KJHowe whose first novel, #thefreedombroker won the Thriller Award for Best First Novel at #thrillerfest tonight.

Had a chance to work and talk with Mr. Martin at #thrillerfest tonight. A more down to earth, funnier and articulate gent you are not likely to meet.

EchoLogical Did he say anything about the remaining books?! 😭 5y
Nerdy_Bookworm Please tell me he mentioned something about the remaining books in the series. I refuse to watch five endings to the final season of "Game of Thrones" and not know how it really ends! 5y
Quirkybookworm I refuse to start Game of Thrones yet til the series done! There‘s nothing worse than being left hanging with no ending. 5y

RJHowe @echological @Nerdy_Bookworm @Quirkybookworm @laurenlovesliterature All I know is that he is working on the next two books and any announcement about dates will come through his publisher. Although I must say the popular history style book coming out in November sounds intriguing. 5y
Briget66 George R.R. Martin is an amazing author! I fell in love with his Fire and Ice series YEARS ago and to see HBO (and George!!) do such an awesome job is just icing on the cake. Boy, can that man Write! Love him!! 5y
