News Flash: December 4, 2011

Congrats to MEP, winner of a copy of Tess Hilmo’s book With a Name Like Love!

From the 2012 Debs…

It was another great session of #debdish this Friday on the subject of queries! Thanks to everyone who joined in the fun–and hope to see you back!

Deb Erika is offering to send signed bookplates to anyone who is giving the gift of LITTLE GALE GUMBO for the holidays. Just email her at with the name of the giftee and your address.

As a thank you to those who pre-order MWF Seeking BFF, Deb Rachel is sending out friendship bracelets. Email her to let her know you’ve pre-ordered, and include your address!

Past Deb News

Deb Sarah Pekkanen revealed that she has just signed a contract for 3 more books–one a year pubbing through 2015!

Deb Sarah Jio announced that THE BUNGALOW will be a “Recommended Reading” pick from Target next month! So exciting!

Deb Dish — In the spirit of Diana Gabaldon’s guest post yesterday, what era in history would you travel to, if given the opportunity?

Deb Joanne – Well, seeing as I read a lot of historicals, I’ve thought about this a lot. I would love to go back to Regency England where many of the books I’ve read are set.  It would be so romantic to not worry about e-mail or jobs or security pat-downs at airports and go to balls where men wear gloves and have impeccable manners and cheesy pickup lines are a thing of the distant future. Yes, I think that would work well for me.  Provided there’s also modern plumbing and antibiotics.  Hey, if we’re talking about time travel, I don’t see why having those modern conveniences would be such a stretch.

Deb Erika does have a thing for the Old West and the frontier (blame Bruce Boxleitner in “How The West Was Won”) and that Little House always looked so incredibly cozy–and Michael Landon did cut one heck of a figure in those trousers…

Deb Molly has a thing for the Roaring Twenties. I have high hopes for the 2020s — only eight years away!

Deb Linda — I’m with Deb Joanne on the modern conveniences. Indoor plumbing (with hot water, please), and antibiotics for the nastier germs, and I’d be happy just about any-when. Of course, I suppose that’s cheating. But I prefer to think of it as being creatively anachronistic.

Deb Rachel wants to know what it was like to come of age in the U.S. in the 1960s. In college I took a lot of ’60s courses–“Sociology of ’60s,” “Cultural History,” “America in the ’60s”–and I really wish I could and experience that era it firsthand.

  1. Signed bookplates and friendship bracelets? Great ideas, both! And it looks like it was a wonderful week for the Deb Sarahs, too. 🙂
