Deb Jennifer Interviewed on Mia’s Blog! Deb Mia is interviewing Deb Jennifer on her blog on Tuesday, April 3, one week before the official release of PROMISE NOT TO TELL. Swing by and hear all about the book and Deb Jennifer’s inspiration for her soon-to-be bestselling novel. Plus, there’s a recipe … towards the end of the book, the character Raven, one of the few remaining members of the commune, makes a big pot of this. However, events take a turn, and the ratatouille goes uneaten, which is too bad, as it’s mighty tasty stuff. Intrigued?
Buzz about Anna’s Book! Party Girl, Anna’s June-due novel, is already garnering some ink. The Spring issue of LA Confidential writes about the “molten-hot buzz around” the book, and the fact that “studios are sniffing around even before the book hits the shelves.” And Paper magazine “Goodreads, Good Times” blogger Alexis Swerdloff lists Party Girl as one of five books “people seem to like.” PG is the only book on the list (which recommends Dave Eggers and Alexandre Dumas novels, among others) that hasn’t been released yet.
