Thrills and Chills as Summer Ends!
Two things seem unbelievable to me: (1) summer break is nearly over, which means I’ll soon be the parent of a first grader; and (2) Walk A Crooked Line has been out for a month already. Boy, does time ever fly!
If you haven’t had a chance to read Crooked Line, I hope you will. It features Texas police detective Jo Larsen in her second investigation post-Walk Into Silence. In this one, Jo and her partner Hank Phelps delve into the suicide of a fifteen-year-old Plainfield girl. Jo wants to know what pushed Kelly Amster over the edge. And, once she and Hank start digging, they find out way more than they bargained for.

If you have read Walk A Crooked Line (or any other of my books, for that matter), I would so love your reviews. They are more important than you may think. Consider writing a review on these pages, where your impact will be felt and appreciated:
If you do review, let me know! I will gather names and put them in a hat for a gift card drawing in October (a birthday giveaway!). Email email@example.com with a link to your review, and you’re in!
I had fun doing a recent flash giveaway of 10 Walk A Crooked Line audio-books on Facebook. If you’re not on my Susan McBride Books page, consider liking it for more book news and contests!
As to the future, I’m already at work on my next project, the resurrection of a suspense novel I found in my basement that is nearly finished. I love it to pieces, and I dearly want to upgrade so it’s more akin to my writing style now. I also want to complete it, and I found my notes, which will help immensely! No title yet, but it’ll be something moody. The story reminds me of Rebecca. Its focus is a young woman trying hard to move forward while the past keeps pulling her back. I’ll keep you posted, for sure!
Events, events! I have two fall gigs on my calendar! As I write this, there are only 13 tickets left for the Authors Breakfast at the Carondelet Library branch on September 29 at 9:30 a.m. So, if you’d like to come, purchase soon! I’ll also be keynoting the Author Shout-Out event at the Schlafly Library branch on October 13. For info and links to both, see my Events page.
