ThrillerFest, here we come.

Plane tickets are booked. Gregory will be attending ThrillerFest -- the annual conference for International Thriller Writers -- in NYC this July 13-15. He's hoping to network and score a beer coaster signed by James Patterson or Jeffery Deaver. If you'll be attending -- especially if you happen to, say, be the acquisitions editor at St. Martins' Press -- drop Gregory a line and drinks are on him!
