Want to decide a Courtroom Scene???

I just learned of a fun opportunity for those of us who love legal thrillers or Law & Order type shows to participate in determining how a scene in Randy Singer's next legal thriller will be written. Here are the details:

Readers will have an opportunity to determine the verdict in Randy’s upcoming legal thriller, The Justice Game (Tyndale House, July 2009), which features a court case centered on the gun debate. The verdict voted on by the readers will be written into the story and kept under wraps until the book’s release. This is the first time in recent memory that an author has taken reader involvement and feedback to this level.

“I wanted to do something different and get my readers really involved in the story,” said Singer. “This gives them an opportunity to hear both sides of the national gun debate and gets them thinking. Plus, it adds an element of fun to the book.”

Taking a new approach to the popular book trailer, Singer has produced a short, online video that mimics a cable news report. Featuring real-life talk show host Lorri Allen as the lead news anchor, the video shares the latest updates on the trial at the center of the book interspersed with segments of the closing arguments direct from the courtroom. At the end of the video, viewers are directed to a special section on Singer’s Web site to render their verdict.

You can access the video at:

Randy, who is a practicing veteran trial attorney as well as a teaching pastor in Virginia Beach, VA, has written seven critically-acclaimed legal thrillers. Publishers Weekly has said he, “is as enjoyable as John Grisham,” and his work has received several noteworthy reviews. His latest book, By Reason of Insanity (Tyndale), debuted in hardcover last summer and releases this month in softcover

BTW: these are my thoughts on By Reason of Insanity: This is the first book of Singer's that I've read, but it won't be the last. I literally finished the book and my head is spinning with all the twists and turns the plot took until the last page. This book is a page-turner of a legal suspense. It reminds me of Grisham's early books -- still my favorites of his.

The courtroom scenes are authentic. The characters rich. The faith element finely woven. In fact this book can be enjoyed by all readers -- regardless of faith.

If you're looking for a legal suspense, this book is well worth your time and money!

"The Hong Kong Connection" is a legal thriller about a gutsy female attorney who takes on high ranking International officials. It's a taut, rollercoaster of a ride from New York to Palm Beach to Washington D.C. to Hong Kong. The plot is expertly woven, the characters persuasive, and the dialogue snappy and spot on.
