B&H Publishing Group, a division of LifeWay Christian Resources, has released "Tick Squish," a mobile game for the iPhone and iPad to support the new B&H Fiction medical thriller "Over the Edge" by Brandilyn Collins.

"Tick Squish," the first mobile game from B&H, is now available in the iTunes App Store for free. The game challenges players to stop ticks from running across their screens.

Collins wrote "Over the Edge," in part, as a response to her own struggles with Lyme disease. Not only did Collins want to entertain with a good story, but also help bring attention to the issues surrounding Lyme disease. Through the release of "Tick Squish," players learn about Lyme disease after each round is completed and unlock sample chapters of the book by finishing the game.

In "Over the Edge" the lead characters struggle with more than just Lyme disease, but also with a rocky marriage and faith issues. Collins is well-known for her deep, compelling characterizations.

"We honor that commitment to the consumer by publishing compelling novels that have strong characters, interesting plots and vivid dialogue that help readers learn about spiritual truths in new and creative ways," Gwinn said. "Just as Christ taught in parables, our fiction authors tell truths through stories. We are always honored when an author chooses to publish their creative works through B&H."

B&H has produced more than 20 apps for the iPhone, iPad, Android devices, Microsoft XBOX 360, and Windows Phone 7.

Collins' book, "Over the Edge," is available at LifeWay Christian Stores and online.
