The Verdict’s In…
and you can have a say in determining the verdict in Randy Singer’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 bookâs release. This is the first time in recent memory that an author has taken reader involvement and feedback to this level.
âI wanted to do something different and get my readers really involved in the story,â said Singer. âThis 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.â
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 Singerâs Web site to render their verdict.

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, âis as enjoyable as John Grisham,â 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.
I’ll be drawing from the comments for one softcover edition of By Reason of Insanity. Contest ends midnight tomorrow.
