News Flash: April 29, 2012

Congrats to Vivien, winner of a copy of The Wicked and The Just!

From the 2012 Debs…

Deb Joanne just got word that she’s going to be presenting at the NCTE Conference in November. VEGAS, BABY!!!

Deb Erika is so excited to see that the schedule for the upcoming SC Book Festival is online! Now she can gush about how excited she is to be presenting on two panels–and presenting on a fiction panel with Deb Friend Therese Fowler on Sunday, May 20!

Deb Molly is currently in Minneapolis, where she had her first official reading at the delightful Red Balloon Bookshop (which not only got special permission to sell copies of The Princesses of Iowa a week before its official release, but also SOLD OUT of those copies!) and then spent a fabulous day at the Loft Literary Center’s Children’s & Young Adult Literature Conference. She’ll also be signing books on Monday, 4/30, at the International Reading Association Conference in Chicago — swing by Candlewick’s table (#1026) between 3 and 4, and say hi!

Past Deb News

If you were near Newburyport, MA, this weekend, hopefully you stopped by the Newburyport Literary Festival and saw Deb Guest Matthew Quick presenting!

Deb Dish – Since we’re coming up to Temptation Week on the Ball, what is one temptation you can never resist?

Deb Joanne – Cheese. No, fried foods. No, pie. Wait, no, lobster. Shoot. Can I just say “All foods?”. (I am also very tempted to roll my eyes at Deb Linda’s pun below. But I will resist. Or, you know, not.)

Deb Erika Oh boy, where to begin? I might say TV. You see, we don’t have TV in our house so every time I get within five feet of one (ie, hotels) and I get my hands on that remote, I’m a goner. I could sit there and click aimlessly until my husband comes and takes it away from me.

Deb Molly Puppies, and the smooching thereof.

Deb Linda  Well, I’m tempted to say chocolate, of course. But that’s a given. I’m going to have to say a good pun. They are so tough for me to resist! It’s very bad of me, and I should probably be *cough* punished for it.

  1. Joanne — Gee, only an eye-roll? I was going for a groan. 😉

    Great news, ladies! I always get a charge out of reading the Newsflash and seeing how well everyone is doing. 🙂

  2. Oooohh, Linda. You couldn’t resist, could you? But then again, this is why we love you 😉

    (In total disclosure, I grew up with the king of puns and I will admit the apple didn’t fall from the tree. I feel your pun–I mean, your pain 😉 )
