I would love to attend ThrillerFest in New York this year; unfortunately, it's not a cheap trip. ThrillerFest begins on a Wednesday with workshops that go on into Thursday. Thursday ends with a two-hour "pitching" event in which aspiring authors have the chance to pitch a novel to different agents. Then on Friday, the actual ThrillerFest begins. R.L. Stine, of Goosebumps fame, will be the ThrillerMaster this year. Ken Follett, New York Times bestseller, will also be in attendance.
This would be a once in a lifetime event for me. To help raise money for this trip, I am participating in two different fundraisers:
Candle Fundraiser & Desserts Fundraiser
If you are interested in helping out or know someone who might like to purchase candles, cookie dough, pumpkin rolls, cinnamon rolls, bar cookies, funnel cakes, churros, soft pretzels, or jalapeno pretzel sticks, please let me know and I'll email you a copy of our brochure.
