Want a Free Read of My Upcoming Novel?


My publisher has informed me that they have 30 ARCs (advanced reader copies) of my novel releasing in July, Deceit ARCs are typically sent to influencers and reviewers for marketing purposes. I am able to personally give these extra copies away. In choosing 30 people to receive an ARC, I'm looking for folks who will be willing to read the novel soon and then spread the word about the book. If you're interested in receiving a copy, please e-mail my assistant at sandy (at) brandilyncollins (dot) com and tell me the various ways you would help publicize Deceit if you received a copy. Are you a member of a book club? Do you work in a library? Do you have a newsletter, or Twitter/Facebook following or blog in which you could talk about the book? Do you know someone in the media you might pass the book to? These are some of the many things you might do.

Send your e-mail by June 10. After that I will be choosing the recipients. If you're selected you'll be notified. Thanks for your interest!

Back cover copy for Deceit:

Sometimes the truth hides where no one expects to find it.

Joanne Weeks knows Baxter Jackson killed Linda—his second wife and Joanne’s best friend—six years ago. But Baxter, a church elder and beloved member of the town, walks the streets a free man. The police tell Joanne to leave well enough alone, but she is determined to bring him down. Using her skills as a professional skip tracer, she sets out to locate the only person who may be able to put Baxter behind bars. Melissa Harkoff was a traumatized sixteen-year-old foster child in the Jackson household when Linda disappeared. At the time Melissa claimed to know nothing of Linda's whereabouts—but was she lying?

In relentless style, Deceit careens between Joanne's pursuit of the truth—which puts her own life in danger—and the events of six years' past, when Melissa came to live with the Jacksons. What really happened in that household? Beneath the veneer of perfection lies a story of shakeable faith, choices, and the lure of deceit.
