Susan McBride: Author of the Cougar Club and young adult, women's fiction and mystery novels


Susan McBride - Debutante Dropout MysteriesHappy September!  What better way to start off the month than with a sale?  HarperCollins is offering the five-book collection of Debutante Dropout Mysteries for just $1.99 everywhere e-books are sold!  Here's a link to BookBub for more information about the special promo (good through September 15). If you haven't read Blue Blood, The Good Girl's Guide to Murder, The Lone Star Lonely Hearts Club, Night of the Living Deb, or Too Pretty To Die, you can get all five e-books for under two bucks before Say Yes to the Death comes out on September 29. Then you'll be ready for a Deb Dropout Reading Marathon!  What could be better?  Besides an HGTV binge, I mean.

Susan McBride - Say Yes to the Death CoverThe audio versions of my Debutante Dropout and River Road Mysteries will be available from HarperCollins starting on September 29 with Say Yes to the Death. I've got links up on my Books page so you can order now.

Speaking of Say Yes to the Death, I've got my one (and only!) book event lined up for Sunday, October 4 at 1:30 p.m. at the Kirkwood Public Library. If you come, my friends, not only will you hear me gab about mysteries and the writing life, you'll get three three three fabulously entertaining mystery authors for the price of one (um, free!). I'll be doing a panel with Angie Fox and Lynn Cahoon, who just happen to be my buddies as well as bestselling authors. I think I'll even bring a birthday cake so you can sing to me since my b-day is in October. Be there or be a rhombus (well, square has been done to death!).

Reminder for Reviewers: If you'd like a digital ARC of Say Yes now, head to Edelweiss and request one or email If you'd rather have a finished book, forward that request to Camille as well.

Contests: I've got a GoodReads giveaway up and running. Enter to win one of 10 signed paperback copies of Say Yes to the Death (ends September 29, 2015). And if you like contests, stay tuned for information on a big October Birthday Giveaway that'll include ALL my Debutante Dropout Mysteries in paperback as well as the first three River Road Mysteries (signed, of course!), plus signed copies of Lynn Cahoon's and Angie Fox's mysteries… and more!

Emily Haircut PhotoAs for Emily, she got her first real haircut recently, and she loved it!  It's way better than crooked bangs a la Mommy.
