The Thriller Zone

On today's episode of The Thriller Zone, I welcome New York Times bestselling author T. J. Newman, the two-time blockbuster writer of action thrillers you read quickly and never forget.

She debuted a year ago and instantly rocketed to the top of the New York Times bestselling lists with the book FALLING. One year later, she's once again enjoying the sweet flavor of success with a follow-up action thriller in DROWNING: The Rescue of Flight 1421.

Not only that, she's taking Hollywood by storm by causing bidding wars between top Hollywood studios, producers, and super-star actors. Yes, Falling will be a movie. And yes, DROWNING will be a movie too.

Today, TJ and I chat about the feeling of success, but the pain of 41 rejection letters, as well. We chat about music, books, favorite adult beverages, and so much more. It's truly one of my favorite episodes this year, and perhaps since we launched the show just shy of two years ago.

Kick back and get comfortable, unless, of course, you are listening to this podcast while working out, commuting, cleaning house, or just chilling on the porch; in that case, you know what to do.

Here's one thing you SHOULD consider: BUY a copy of DROWNING today! It's available for pre-order on Amazon, Apple, Barnes & Noble and Indie-bound. Note: it will also be available in the audiobook soon.

And trust me when I say you will love it. This book has everything a solid hit thriller keep you turning pages, and rooting for the good guys, right up to the startling conclusion.
