Storm has signed a psychological thriller by Amanda McKinney, writing as Amanda Tisevich. Amanda is the author of more than thirty romantic suspense and thriller novels. Her books have received over fifteen literary awards and nominations, including the prestigious Daphne du Maurier Award for Excellence, and have been included in lists such as POPSUGAR’s 12 Best Romance Books and featured on the Today Show. Deputy Managing Director Claire Bord agreed the World English Language rights deal with Jill Marsal at Marsal Lyon Literary Agency.

A Marriage of Lies opens with reclusive detective Rowan Velky called to the crime scene of a young woman who has been found murdered in her beautiful home within the small town of Blackbird Cove but it soon becomes clear that Rowan is harbouring some dark secrets of her own. The book will be published in March 2024 in ebook, audio and paperback.

McKinney says:

“I am beyond thrilled to be signing with Storm. From the moment we met, I knew Storm was different. They’re flipping traditional publishing on its head. Storm’s fresh, innovative approach, combined with decades of proven experience, excites the heck out of me. Finally, someone is listening. Let’s do this, Storm!”

Bord commented:

“As soon as I’d read the first pages of A Marriage of Lies, I was hooked. It has the kind of original twisty plot and intriguing characters that keep you up all night just to read one more page. Amanda is already the queen of romantic suspense, and with this book, I’m excited about working with her to grow her readership globally.”
