NYT best selling author, Allison Brennan, has new series - The Seven Deadly Sins. The first book is out this week - Original Sin with the next two book in the seven book series coming out later in 2010. I'm expecting my pre-ordered copy of Original Sin today though it actually relased on Tuesday.
I'm sure you're familiar with her romantic thrillers, eighteen in all. If not, here's a blurb from her awesome new website - 'Reviewers have called her books "terrifying," "mesmerizing," "fast-paced," "pulse-pounding," "wonderfully complex," "layered," and "a master of suspense - tops in the genre." ' You can read about her new series there and hear more about upcoming events. I was excited to see a new Lucy Kincaid book coming in 2011.
As you can see, her novels would appeal to crime fiction readers as well.
Allison is also a sought after workshop presenter, generous with her knowledge of writing and the industry and has presented at RWA in Nashville and a host of other venues. If you would like to catch one of her workshops on Breaking the Rules to Break Out or No Plotters Allowed, she'll be presenting No Plotters Allowed at the Georgia Romance Writers conference in October. The Kiss of Death chapter offers hers as well as other super workshops on all facets of suspense, forensics, writing, etc.
If you only budget one workshop this year, catch one of Allison's. They are the best!
Oh, and I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the exceptional blog Murderati again. Mystery, Murder and Marketing - great advice on the genre, writing and publishing.
