International Thriller Writers (of which I am a member), has "adopted" the 14 debut novelists who are part of the Killer Year campaign for 2007. From ITW founding member MJ Rose:
Wouldn’t it be great if ITW as an organization could help the debut authors who are going to be the future of our genre? I was thrilled when this summer the full ITW board of directors approved the idea to adopt Killer Year 2007 and take some of the tough work out of being a debut.

ITW will sponsor a Killer Year breakfast at ThrillerFest ’07 where each of the debut novelists will be presented by his or her mentor to readers, reviewers and the press. After 2007, Killer Year will remain an ongoing program, with ITW welcoming a new class of debut novelists.
