The Debutante Ball Welcomes Back Deb Eve Brown-Waite

Well hello there Debutante Ball readers!  It has been a long time since I danced on this stage as a Debutante back in 2009. Not that long since I danced mind you. In fact I did that just recently, after imbibing far too many drinks in celebration of mine & St. John’s 21st wedding anniversary. (I figure if your marriage is THAT OLD, you are allowed to take it out…

It Ain’t Over ‘Til the Jellyfish Stings by Deb Eve

What? My LAST post as a Debutante? It can’t possibly be. My book is not a bestseller yet, hasn’t been optioned for a movie, I’m not nearly where I should be on my next effort, I haven’t even figured out if I’m a writer (as in, this is my career) or just a person who wrote a book (as in, go out and get a job now, dear)! No! There’s…

Step in to Rev. Eve’s Confessional, by Deb Eve

Hmmm … my bad habits? I’ve got plenty of them. C’mon, who doesn’t. Procrastinating is definitely high on my list. As in, I procrastinated on this week’s blog post and now that I’m on vacation with no internet connection, it’s rather difficult to come up with something pithy and/or deep to write seeing as how I’m on the spot, the kids are hungry, I’ve borrowed my daughter’s computer and pilfered…

What were we talking about? By Deb Eve

Well, I almost made it through the entire Debutante Ball year without the embarrassment of having absolutely NOTHING to say about the topic at hand. Almost that is. Until today. Because I’ve got very few thoughts on what books I’d want to have with me if I were stuck on a deserted island. I don’t usually re-read books – no matter how much I love them. It probably has something…

Yes, I SHOULD be on Oprah, by Deb Eve

Yes, yes, yes …. I SHOULD be on Oprah. I know that because EVERYONE tells me that. And I know that because FIRST COMES LOVE, THEN COMES MALARIA is true and riveting, uplifting, motivating and ever-so-slightly spiritual – all things Americans need right now. Plus, it takes place in Africa, touches on themes of racism, sexual abuse and overcoming hardships – all things that Oprah loves. Yes, of course! My…

Once An Outie, Now An Innie, By Deb Eve

I am about as Extroverted as one can get. Or at least I used to be. Most people fall somewhere in between, having more extroverted or introverted tendencies, but having some of both. But not Eve! Nope, whenever tested, I’m always a total extrovert. Or at least I should say, I was a total extrovert. Then a funny thing happened on the way to my first book tour. At just…

The Monkey Gunking Up The Whole Works, by Deb Eve

I’m not really sure what myths I believed about publishing before I published my book. No doubt, I thought pretty much what I have always thought about most of the hard things I’ve ever had to tackle in life. If you do your absolute best, put your heart and soul into it, persevere, think positively and be nice – then things will probably turn out pretty well. I still believe…
