My latest novel, Dark Pursuit, started shipping Friday, Nov. 7--ten days ago. By now they will be showing up on shelves across the country. If you check a store and the book's not there yet, you can always pre-order. Its arrival is imminent.
Thanks to many ARC giveaways from Zondervan, Dark Pursuit has already been reviewed all over the place on the Internet. New reviews come in each day. And on December 3-5 it will appear on the Christian Fiction Blog Alliance tour.
I'm very happy to see how extremely positive the reviews are. It's particularly gratifying to read reviews from people who haven't read Christian fiction before, stating how exciting and twisting they found the story to be. As for me, I had a fun time writing this book. Imagine a suspense author writing about a suspense author who's having trouble coming up with a plot. :) Might I be mixing a little reality and fiction there? And then, of course, the story mixes reality and fiction in its own way ...
Between the blog tours and ARCs, I've given numerous opportunities for you F&F readers to receive a free copy of Dark Pursuit. If there are some out there who still haven't gotten a free copy, you have more chances. Right now through the Fans of Brandilyn Collins group on Facebook, I'm giving away 10 copies--winners drawn Friday. If you're not already a member of the group, join and add your post to the drawing. Just answer the questions (1) Why do you want a copy of Dark Pursuit, and (2) Who would you loan/give the book to when you're done reading?
You can also subscribe to my newsletter, Sneak Pique, which includes chances to win books in each issue. The next Sneak Pique will be released in the beginning of December.
Finally, if you've bought Dark Pursuit and want it signed (or any other suspense novel of mine, for that matter), please go to the Free Stuff page on my web site to request a bookplate. Might make someone you know a nice Christmas present.
