We're in the home stretch now -- less than two months until Promise Not to Tell is out! People are saying good things:
“Well-plotted suspenseful fun.” – Kirkus
"Deeply disturbing and darkly compelling, Promise Not to Tell will have you looking over your shoulder for the Potato Girl long after you've turned the last page." – Sara Gruen, author of Water for Elephants
"Part mystery-thriller and part ghost story, McMahon's well-paced debut alternates smoothly between past and present.... McMahon does a particularly good job of portraying the cruelty of school children." - Publishers Weekly
I've been hard at work finishing up a new novel, editing my young adult book (coming out next year from Dutton Children's), blogging every Wednesday over at the Debutante Ball, and meeting many, many wonderful people both in person and online. We've also gotten together a pretty good Reading Group Guide for Promise -- it's up at the HarperCollins site.
I will`be appearing on Wednesday, March 14th at 7pm at the Kellogg-Hubbard Library in Montpelier, Vermont at "Vermont Women of Mystery" -- a gala event to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Sisters in Crime. So if you want a sneak peak at Promise Not to Tell (and to hear from some other amazing mystery gals including Sarah Stewart Taylor, Nancy Means Wright, and Carla Neggers) come check it out! If the reading itself isn't enough to entice you to come out in the cold, it will be followed by a "Death by Chocolate" reception! I've got a list of events for April up at the website, and (hopefully!) I'll be adding to it, so check back often.
