From the 2012 Debs…

Deb Joanne is happy to announce that she’s booked her launch party for July 14, 2012 at Bryan Prince Bookseller in Hamilton, Ontario. You’re all coming, right?

Deb Molly will spend Wednesday teaching a day of classes at the Odyssey fine arts festival at Stevenson High School, so apologies in advance if she doesn’t respond to comments in a timely fashion.

Deb Erika has been battling a cold and wondering what the heck they did to NyQuil that it now leaves her with a headache in the morning? Anyone with answers please feel free to leave them in the comments. Deb Erika would be most appreciative.

Deb Dish – This week we talked signings: What author (living or deceased) would you love to see at a signing?

Deb JoanneI think I would have to say L.M. Montgomery for two reasons. One, to thank her and tell her how much I loved Anne Shirley and Gilbert Blythe and how countless hours of my childhood were spent with my nose in her books.  And second, so I could take her out for a latte after the signing and grill her on how she created such a perfectly imperfect character that people have adored for over a hundred years. Because that’s what it’s all about, right? Making people love your characters so much that they put the book into their child’s hands and their grandchild’s hands.

Deb Erika says great minds, Deb Joanne: L.M. Montgomery, absolutely. And I went through a big On The Road phase so I think seeing Kerouac would have been larger-than-life. Also, Truman Capote. Oh, talk about tongue-tied. I’d have been mush at his genius. Totally mush.

Deb Molly would love to have met Madeline L’Engle. I suspect she was one of those people whose very presence and attention made you feel cherished and important.

Deb Linda — I’d love to go to one of Deb Tawna Fenske’s signings. Not just to get my copies of her books signed, but because I suspect we’d go out for drinks afterward, and have a great time spewing industry gossip–er, I mean, discussing great works of literature.

  1. Oh Erika, sorry to hear! I adore NyQuil, and haven’t experienced the hangover myself, but I do wish you a speedy recovery.
