Great news: Indie Next!

Hard to put into words how MASSIVELY EXCITING this is, but The Magician's Lie has been named to the Indie Next list for January 2015. Books are nominated and voted on by indie booksellers across the country, and the list is circulated to every bookstore in the American Booksellers Association. It's a BIG DEAL and I cannot BELIEVE how lucky I am to have my book chosen. AMAZING!

Here's the list of titles, on the ABA site.

And here's what they say about The Magician's Lie. YAY!

“Macallister’s debut novel is historical fiction that blends magic, mystery, and romance. In turn-of-the-century America at the height of stage magic’s popularity, the renowned female illusionist Amazing Arden must convince a young police officer, Virgil Holt, of her innocence in a murder that looks suspiciously like one of her most famous illusions gone wrong. As Arden’s story unfolds over the course of the night she spends in police custody, the reader, as well as Officer Holt, must decide if she is telling the truth or if this, too, is part of her act.” —Meagan Albin, Breakwater Books, Guilford, CT
