Exhibit A Books is thrilled to announce the acquisition of two gripping, psychological, stand-alone thrillers from Siobhan MacDonald. The World English rights deal was negotiated by Exhibit A editor Bryon Quertermous with Isobel Dixon of Blake Friedmann.
Twisted River will be released October 2014, with The Blue Pool publishing in 2015.
Siobhan MacDonald: “I am hugely excited to be joining the impressive stable of writers at Exhibit A Books. To debut with such an innovative and dynamic publisher is an enormous thrill for me. I’m very much looking forward to working with them.”
Bryon Quertermous: “For my first acquisition for Exhibit A, I can’t imagine a more exciting project than Twisted River. Readers are in store for an exciting book with layered characters and a plot that engages the brain as much as the senses. I’m looking forward to working with Siobhan and her wonderful agent, Isobel Dixon, to bring this book to readers later this year.”
Isobel Dixon: “I’m delighted that Siobhan MacDonald is Bryon’s first Exhibit A acquisition. She’s already been snapped up in Germany too and I look forward to seeing more readers round the world discover her compelling blend of suspense and character in the year ahead.”
Twisted River is a gripping page-turner set in Manhattan and Limerick, as a dream holiday house swap goes horribly wrong. With a great premise, compelling relationships, and growing suspense Twisted River is a terrifying tale of an ordinary domestic situation taking a very dark turn.
Siobhan MacDonald was born in Cork in the Republic of Ireland. She studied electronic engineering in Galway, and worked as a technical writer in Scotland for ten years with a year in France, before returning to Ireland. She now lives in Limerick with her husband and two sons.
