Fifteen Minutes of Shame is coming to a theater near you!
We just sold film rights (yippee!), here’s the official announcement:
Lisa Daily’s FIFTEEN MINUTES OF SHAME, about what happens when America’s favorite TV dating guru finds out her husband is cheating — on live TV, to Parallax Productions, in a pre-empt, by Brendan Deneen at Objective Entertainment, on behalf of Jenny Bent at Trident Media Group.

Deb Lisa’s book just received a fabulous 4 1/2 star review in the RT Bookclub!

Lisa Daily
**** 1/2

With heart, fun and a little love advice thrown in, Daily’s debut novel is a rollicking ride with a main character readers will root for. Relatable, hilarious and flawed to perfection, the heroine has a heart of gold. Daily captures the best parts of the chick lit genre. This book is an uproarious good time!

Summary: Darby Vaughn, dating expert extraordinaire, has just found out on national television that her philandering husband has filed for divorce. After an embarrassing 15 minutes that involve a stunned Matt Lauer and an arrangement of chrysanthemums that will never be the same, Darby must bounce back and not lose all she’s worked so hard for. She just may find that even if she had those 15 minutes to do over again, in the end, she wouldn’t change a thing. (PLUME, Apr., 320pp., $14.00)

Booking Mama just gave Fifteen Minutes of Shame a fantastic review — you can read it here. “Fifteen Minutes of Shame is chick lit at its best!” “I loved the character of Darby, and my heart went out to her right away”

  2. Thanks for the shout-out! I am so happy to see that you sold the film rights! I’ll be there opening night! Now we’ll have another great question for discussion at my book club — who do you see as Darby, Will, etc.?

  3. Julie,

    You’re welcome! Thanks for the fabulous review 🙂

    Great question! As I was writing, I always saw Drew Barrymore as Darby (although my assistant and my editor both thought of Reese Witherspoon or Kate Hudson) and frankly, I’d be ecstatic with any of the three.

    I think James Marsden would make a yummy Holt (27 Dresses, anyone?) and Mark Valley (from Boston Legal) looks exactly like the guy I pictured in my head for Will.

    Judy Greer (Wedding Planner, 13 Going on 30, 27 Dresses) would make a perfect Tia.

    The agent, of course, would be played by Holland Taylor
