Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Re: Suspense & Thriller Authors - Introduce Yourselves!

What a great idea! :smileyhappy: I'm Colleen Coble and my next book out of the gate is Lonestar Angel  . I write romantic suspense. I'm currently working on a novel set in the Outer Banks. I was in St. Croix last year. There was a harbor cam there so I called my parents to tell them to log onto their computer and we'd wave at them. They did. I got to thinking about a young woman who sees her sister taken by kidnappers through a beach cam. So that's what I'm writing now. Tidewater Inn is the title. 

 

Eager to see what everyone is working on.

Hi Colleen - I just noticed your book is listed incorrectly. You might want to check with your publisher, since they most likely gave B&N the information. It's coming up with Thomas Nelson as the author.

Re: Suspense & Thriller Authors - Introduce Yourselves!

Becke, you are always such a lovely and gracious hostess! :smileyhappy:

 

I am the author of the romantic suspense novel, Endless Night  from Carina Press. I love mystery and suspense, but I always like some romance in my books, so that is pretty much the formula you can expect from me! 

 

Here is a little sampling from Endless Night  

 

 

A woman hiding from her identity. A man trying to find his.


After witnessing a murder, Megan Summers ran until she reached the remote coastal village of Victory Cove. She has a new name, but she knows it’ s only a matter of time before the murderer catches up with her.

 

Jake Grogan has come to town to unravel the mystery of his heritage. Instead of finding his grandmother at Wakefield House, he discovers an attractive stranger who will do anything to get him off her doorstep. Trapped by a storm, he’ s forced to stay the night with Megan—a woman who keeps a handgun under her bed and closes herself off from the outside world.

 

Jake tries to dig deeper into his past, but he’ s distracted by his fear for Megan’ s safety and his growing feelings for her. Danger is drawing near and he’ ll do anything to keep her safe. Will it be enough to help them survive the endless night?

Re: Suspense & Thriller Authors - Introduce Yourselves!

Thanks for this fantastic opportunity. My name is Richard Mabry, and I'm a retired physician, now writing "medical suspense with heart." My third book, Diagnosis Death, is recently out, and the fourth, Lethal Remedy, releases this fall.

I live in North Texas with my wife, Kay. When I'm not writing, I can be found hacking my way around the golf course or spoiling my grandchildren.

Re: Suspense & Thriller Authors - Introduce Yourselves!

Hi everybody. My name is Thomas Smith and I write supernatural suspense. In my current novel, Something Stirs, the Chalmers family is pitted against a dark, chilling, ruthless force that has become part of the very fabric of their new home. And it won’t stop until it gets what it wants. Even if it costs them their faith, their sanity, and their lives.

 

My next novel, Stranger, is something of a departure for me. It takes place in a single location, and instead of chapters, the story is a single long narrative broken up by time indications as the action progresses.

 

"I don't scare easily but this one had me watching the shadows in my own home. With identifiable characters, great pacing, and chills that build as the story progresses, Something Stirs will be enjoyed by anyone looking for a good read. Consider me impressed. And scared!"
  - Mike Dellosso, author of The Hunted, Scream, Darlington Woods, and Darkness Follows

Hi, Colleen, the Outer Banks is a wonderful place for a setting or backdrop for a book. It really is a beautiful place with all the different lighthouses to see. Good luck with your book and thanks for stopping bythe Mystery Forum.

Richard, I have your Code Blue  TBR on my Nook.  I find the "medical suspense with heart" approach very inviting.
