Yup, I'm up to something new, but I haven't been able to say a word--until now. Here's the press release that's just been sent out.
Brandilyn Collins Signs With B&H Publishing Group
NASHVILLE, Tenn--Brandilyn Collins, bestselling novelist known for her trademark Seatbelt Suspense®, has signed with B&H Publishing Group. Her first book with B&H is the story Collins says she was “made to write”—a tense novel based on Lyme Disease and the stunning medical battles over its treatment. Brandilyn herself fought the illness seven years ago and well knows the fallout across the nation of the “Lyme Wars.”
Collins’s first book, A Question of Innocence, was a true crime novel published by Avon in 1995 and resulted in appearances on radio and national TV talk shows. Her novels have garnered critical acclaim and awards, including ACFW Book of the Year (three times), Inspirational Readers’ Choice, and Romantic Times Reviewers’ Choice. Collins’ readers have come to expect her novels’ fast pace and twists—the brand elements that lead to her tagline, Don’t forget to breathe®.
“We’re thrilled to be working with Brandilyn,” said Karen Ball, Executive Editor of Fiction for B&H. “She’s known and respected throughout the industry, not just for her skill as a writer, but for her understanding of the market. Brandilyn’s stories thrill you and keep you turning pages. This is one writer who just keeps getting better. In addition to her novel about Lyme, she brought us two other concepts equally as intense and exciting. We can’t wait to get all three books on the shelves.”
Collins’ first novel with B&H releases in May 2011.
I'm working on that first novel now. Current title--Over the Edge. I'm very excited about it. So many people have Lyme--and don't know it. They're undiagnosed and untreated--and very sick. Over the Edge will shed light on their plight and the surrounding "Lyme Wars." What are these battles about? Why is the medical community so seemingly afraid of this disease? And to what lengths might one embittered man, who's lost a wife to Lyme, go in order to change the situation?...
