I was a little unprepared when I opened my first Brandilyn Collins novel. Notwithstanding, I decided to write a tutorial so none of you have to experience this misfortune.
I don’t know how I’ve gone this long without reading her books. Making up for lost time I read two crime novels in less than two weeks.
Buy a book, check out her blog and give her a shout on Facebook. Don’t forget to tell her I sent you.
the book – And as Brandilyn would say “Don’t forget to BREATHE!”
a pen and paper– This gal knows a lot of words and she’s not afraid to use them. I keep pen and paper handy to jot down words I don’t know, words I know but want to get more familiar with and words that I simply like.
lights, lots of lights! – When possible, read only during the day. Sadly I cannot so I carry a BIG FLASHLIGHT! It has surprising dual benefit, its heavy enough to be a weapon. Watch out Hon!
phone – Your gonna need a phone to call your mommy.
Which of Brandilyn’s books have you read? Did I miss anything necessary for surviving her fast paced suspense novels?
How does a Christian author write about such terrifying circumstances and still stay true to her faith? As Chrisitians we are not exempt from trouble in fact James says “Consider it all joy my brethren when you encounter various trials for the testing of your faith produces endurance.” Brandilyn’s ministry is in depicting how characters who face tragic circumstances react. Some lean on Christ, others are driven to commit terrible crimes, still others stay ambiguous in their faith. We see different people in different walks of life change, thus challenging each of us to take a hard look at how we deal with this imperfect world we live in.
The Bible says that the whole earth moans as if in the pains of childbirth, waiting to be restored to Him. Like a new baby we are in for a surprise when this life is up! For those who know Jesus personally; restoration, peace, no more tears. For those who reject him they are given what they choose, eternal separation.
Each of Brandilyn’s books takes you right up to the edge of life, ask the hard questions and leaves you with a choice. Which path will you follow?
