Congrats to Charlotte, winner of a copy of Alex George’s A Good American!

Congrats to Erika Robuck, winner of a signed copy of Eleanor Brown’s The Weird Sisters!

From the 2012 Debs…

Deb Joanne is pleased to announce she finally updated her website to a non-ugly and easy to update one: www.joannelevy.com. Also, the giveaway for an ARC of SMALL MEDIUM AT LARGE is now live on Goodreads. Go ahead and enter – she’d love it if one of our faithful Deb readers won! Sorry, Mom, you’re not eligible.

Deb Erika knows of a lot of wonderful writers headed off to AWP (including Deb Molly!) and wishes she was joining them all.

Deb Molly is busily preparing for the AWP Conference (the biggest writing conference in North America!) this week, & especially looking forward to her panel, “Queer Voices in Young Adult Literature,” with fabulous fellow YA writers James Klise, Alexandra Diaz, and Meagan Brothers. And ALSO a certain former Deb will be in the Chicago area on Tuesday

Deb Rachel will be reading from MWF Seeking BFF tonight at the Haymarket Pub & Brewery in Chicago. If you’re in the Windy City, you can also tune in to her appearance on WGN Midday News on Thursday!

Past Deb News

Deb Elise was at the Passion and Prose Romance Conference on Saturday in Long Beach–we wish we could have been there!

While Deb Eleanor continues her touring schedule, THE WEIRD SISTERS hit #2 on the Indie Bestseller List and #5 on the New York Times List! Brava, brava!

Friends of the Debs

Deb Guest Sarah McCoy has been on the road promoting her new release THE BAKER’S DAUGHTER and getting rave reviews! Including this write-up in USA Today!

Recent Deb Guest Alex George‘s A GOOD AMERICAN made the Southern Indie Bestseller List this week. Cheers, Alex!

Deb Dish - With Oscar night upon us, what book do you think needs to be made into a movie–and who would you cast?

Deb Joanne – oh this is a tough one for me because I see books and movies as such different media that until I see a movie brought to life on the big screen, I can never really imagine it. I’m going to cop out here and say how much I’m looking forward to THE HUNGER GAMES movie because I do think that it’s going to be awesome and it has all the elements for a fantastic film.

Deb Erika–I think The Silent Land by Graham Joyce would make a wonderfully eerie film. I read it recently and loved it. It’s part ghost story, part love story, and all kinds of spooky.

Deb Molly — Kat Falls’ book Dark Life NEEDS to be a movie! Come on, Disney, quit screwing around & get on this one!

Deb Linda — I think it would be a hoot and a half to see Deb Rachel’s MWF Seeking BFF made into a movie. It would be like the Friends meets 50 First Dates, and could star Keri Russell as Rachel. Wouldn’t that be fun?

Deb Rachel loves Deb Linda’s idea! And LOVES Keri Russell. (Thanks Linda!!) She’d also like to see the film version of Cutting for Stone. Naveen Andrews could do the role of Marion justice.
