News Flash: November 13, 2011

Congrats to Susan O, winner of a copy of Joanna Bourne’s The Black Hawk!

From the 2012 Debs…

Deb Erika was thrilled to hear that LITTLE GALE GUMBO was selected as one of Deep South Magazine’s picks for their Fall/Winter Reading List (as was Deb Guest Kathleen Grissom‘s THE KITCHEN HOUSE!) and the wonderful folks at Deep South are also giving away two copies, so stop in and comment for a chance to win! Also, she was so touched by Deb Friend and book blogger S. Krishna’s review of LITTLE GALE GUMBO–thank you, Swapna!


Past Deb News

Deb Eleanor‘s novel The Weird Sisters has been selected as one of Amazon’s Best Books of 2011 and as one of their top 10 in debut fiction!  Yay, Eleanor!

At Writer Unboxed, Deb Sarah shared how she learned that an e-book had been written about her and her novel THE VIOLETS OF MARCH on! Wow!

Deb Elise finished up a round of appearances with the Stages on Pages tour AND ran the NYC Marathon. What a week!

Friends of the Debs

Deb Guest Keith Cronin also wrote a fantastic post for Writer Unboxed, his on the–necessarily–difficult road to getting published in literary journals.

Deb Dish — Book you wish they’d make into a movie and who you’d cast in the lead:

Deb Joanne Uh, mine, of course.  And you can put any plucky fun kid in the role of Lilah.  Just kidding (dear Hollywood – no, I’m not kidding. Call me).

I’m so bad with these kinds of things, but I think I would love to see some J.R. Ward books put on the big screen with some really beefy, cut dudes playing the BDB.  But maybe they would be restricted.  Very restricted. Maybe only appropriate for in-home viewing.  Hmmm.  Sorry…  I was daydreaming there for a second.  Never mind.

Deb Erika won’t pretend she hasn’t cast LITTLE GALE GUMBO, down to the postmaster and the ferry captain, but she wouldn’t want to ruin anyone’s read so she’ll simply keep her thoughts to herself. (Okay, maybe she’ll confess she has thought Matt Damon would make a wonderful Ben, since he’s aging so nicely…)

Deb Linda I’ve been waiting forever for someone to make a movie — or, better yet, a miniseries — of Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander. Only, honestly, I don’t know of any actors who could do justice to my vision of Jamie or Claire, so I’m kind of dreading it at the same time. Total mixed emotions, really.

Deb Molly I refuse to cast book/movies after my dreams of Mr. Jay playing Cinna were shot down. But I would love to see a movie based on Laurie King’s Mary Russell series, because seriously: action, mystery, a super-smart heroine, old Victorian values clashing with the wildness of the Roaring Twenties… cinematic brilliance.

  1. Eleanor, that’s fantastic! The success continues. Hooray for The Weird Sisters!

    Sarah and Elise, cool news from you guys, too. The subject of an ebook, and a marathoner! Y’all are tough to top. 🙂
