News Flash for Sunday August 3, 2008

Deb News:

After The Debs (minus Gail) finish storming San Francisco they’re off to storm NYC (at least three of them, Deb Jenny, Deb Danielle and Deb Gail) for the Backspace Conference August 7th.

Deb Eileen is beyond THRILLED to have her first blurb for her upcoming YA What Would Emma Do? from one of her favorite authors. “Not since Judy Blume’s Margaret introduced herself to God has there been such a funny, genuine, conflicted, Wanna-Be-Sorta-Good-Maybe-Later girl as Emma in Eileen Cook’s new novel, ‘What Would Emma Do?’ Cook’s tone as she takes on the big ones — life, love, faith and friendship — is pitch perfect.”- Jacquelyn Mitchard, author ‘The Midnight Twins’ and ‘The Deep End of the Ocean’

Deb Jess is extremely pleased to share a review of Driving Sideways from Nancy McKenzie for the Internet Review of Books: “Riley deftly weaves a story about … potentially depressing topics within the framework of a funny book without being insensitive—no easy task.”

Deb Jess, Deb Danielle and Deb Lisa danced the night away at the Harlequin Ball. (With none other than Ward Gardiner (Bushee.) Seriously.

Pictures to come.
