September 2012 at Barnes & Noble's Mystery Forum

I've shuffled the schedule around this year. For the past couple of years, August was our Month of Suspense & Thrillers. When I realized my grandbaby was likely to be born in August, I bumped this feature up to September.

At the time, I didn't realize I'd be moving in September. *bangs head on desk* Okay, you've figured it out by now - this isn't a normal year for me. I hope you'll bear with me as I muddle along!

I won't be online as much as I usually am in September, so I'll post an "Introduce Yourself" thread for authors who write Suspense and Thrillers. If that describes you, don't be shy about posting.

While spamming is discouraged here, you are more than welcome to promote your suspense novels and thrillers on the "thread" I'll be providing. To add links to your books, open a comment box (click "reply") and then click "Add Product" at the upper right.

In addition to the author introductions, we have some guest blogs and featured author visits, too! Because I'm aware everyone doesn't share my love of suspense and thrillers, many - but not all - of the books featured in September will be in that sub-genre.
