Deal Announcement

Hi, lovelies! It's J.T.!!!

I know I'm breaking my silence, but I am so excited to share some awesome news with you today! Remember during my annual review last year, when I listed a secret project in my word counts? It's not a secret any more!

I'm writing a new standalone thriller! It's called LIE TO ME.

Here’s the announcement from Publishers Marketplace:

NYT bestselling author J.T. Ellison's new standalone LIE TO ME, the story of a young couple's happy marriage falling apart after the unexplained death of their infant son, each blaming the other for his loss, to Nicole Brebner at Mira, in a good deal, by Scott Miller at Trident Media Group.

LIE TO ME will be my next solo book released, sometime next summer. It’s been brewing in my mind for almost two years, since I was sitting in a Parisian café and the idea hit me. It's been a challenging book to write, which is why I’m off on my social media sabbatical trying to get it finished. 

For those of you who loved NO ONE KNOWS, this one is definitely right up your alley. It's a domestic suspense (or domestic noir, whichever you prefer), a thriller with deeper undertones. Ordinary people, extraordinary event, and the aftermath that ensues.

I’m enjoying the process of creating something out of nothing, which standalones seem to be for me, rather than having the world already built. I’m also really loving this new editorial direction, and I hope that passion will translate to the page.

Don’t worry about Sam and Taylor, I haven’t abandoned them. ALL FALL DOWN will be coming, just not right away. LIE TO ME just won’t leave me alone, so I have to write it. Some stories are like that.   

I hope your summer is going grandly! I’ll see you in a few weeks (Assuming the book is done by then…)

In the meantime, #keepreading!


P.S: I know some of you are still waiting for the audio of FIELD OF GRAVES. I promise it's coming, very soon. The moment I have a date, I'll share the links. 📚
