Patry Francis, The Liar’s Diary

Today is The Liar’s Diary blog day. The Liar’s Diary is the debut suspense novel of author Patry Francis. It came out in hardcover last spring from Dutton and today is the release date for the trade paperback.

Here’s what Mystery Scene magazine had to say:
The Liar's Diary is a dark book, engrossing from the first paragraph. Deeply textured, it is more psychological suspense than a simple mystery.

Kirkus Review wrote:
Genuinely creepy...The unlikely friendship between a small-town school secretary and a flamboyant teacher proves deadly in this psychological murder mystery.

Author Tess Gerritsen, in the International Thriller Writers’ Newsletter, wrote:
Nothing is as it seems in this masterful and twisty thriller about love, obsession, and poisonous friendships....Patry Francis writes with a quietly intimate voice, subtly weaving her spell as the tension slowly but surely builds to a fever pitch. Packed with jaw-dropping revelations, LIAR'S DIARY still manages to save one last walloping shock for the end.

Sound like an author you’d like to know more about? Visit her website for more about her and The Liar’s Diary.

You may be wondering why I and a lot of other bloggers declared this The Liar’s Diary blog date and are helping to promote Francis’s book. It’s because a few weeks ago, she was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer and, although after several surgeries her prognosis is good, she’s still not up to a full scale promotion push.

As a new author, she may not be on your radar or To Be Read list. Next time you’re in the bookstore, look for The Liar’s Diary or ask your bookseller to order it for you.
