News Flash! March 23, 2008

Deb News:
Deb Jenny will discuss SLEEPING WITH WARD CLEAVER on a panel about marriage in fiction at the Virginia Festival of the Book at 6 p.m. Wednesday, March 26, at New Dominion Bookshop in Charlottesville, VA.

Deb Friend Andrea Frazer posted a fabulous and very thoughtful review on her Baby Center blog and gave Sleeping with Ward Cleaver a wonderful mention on her always fun and interesting Good Housekeeping My So-Called Sex Life blog. Said Frazer: Sleeping With Ward Cleaver is the perfect lounge at the pool summer reading. Not only will you learn that you’re not the first person on the planet to avoid sex with your husband, but you will also find that you might just be able to jumpstart it again with a little humor and open minded conversation.

Meg Cabot included a very generous mention of Sleeping with Ward Cleaver in her blog recently (scroll down to March 6 entry, it’s the 4th paragraph beneath the sub-heading End of Spoiler).

And here’s a Virginia Festival of the book preview piece from Charlottesville’s The Hook.

Sleeping with Ward Cleaver is the featured giveaway book on Charlottesville radio station 106.1 The Corner—you too can stream the audio of this awesome station and try to win a copy.

Oh, and totally forgot to mention that Sleeping with Ward Cleaver went into its second printing a couple of weeks ago!

  2. Hey Debs, thanks for the plug on the Jennifer Weiner contest, I’ll be putting up details late Monday afternoon!

    Also, very excited to see Deb Lisa will be in my neck ‘o the woods in April… how lucky can one non-Deb get?!?!?!? I’m making the Deb rounds–having befriended and met Eileen, Jess, and now soon Lisa… I’m getting the notches on my belt! (Is that the term?!?!)

    Anyway, stop by later for a chance to win Certain Girls and Good In Bed!

    Debs ROCK!
