From the 2011 Debs…
Deb Tawna was honored this week to be interviewed by Gabriela Lessa as part of a series for Women’s Fiction Month. Gabriela kicked off the series a few weeks ago by interviewing the amazing Jodi Picoult (who, incidentally, guest blogged at the Debutante Ball a couple years ago here). Deb Tawna had the pleasure of wrapping up this portion of the series with a fun interview about labels, humor, blogging, and Strip Battleship. You can check it out here.
Deb Kim thanks Larramie from Divining Wand for a wonderful “revealing” on Divining Wand.
Friends of the Debs…
Upcoming guest Julie Klam‘s upcoming You Had Me at Woof is a People Pick in this week’s People Magazine!
Erin Blakemore will be visiting the Debs in November, but her debut book, The Heroine’s Bookshelf is available now!
Deb Dish — If I Could Live Anywhere, It Would Be…
I used to live in a great rent-controlled apartment in Santa Monica, just 5 blocks from the beach, walking distance to the Third Street Promenade and Montana Avenue. I rode my bike or ran on the beach every day, and walked to a fabulous Farmer’s Market every Wednesday and Saturday. I moved because my husband and I wanted a dog and a kid, and there just wasn’t enough room there, but eventually I’d love to move back to the same general area, just into a house this time. (Of course, given that the houses there cost about a zillion dollars, it won’t be happening any time soon, but still…)
Given that I’ve just moved halfway across the country to live in a place I’ve always wanted to (Colorado), it would be bad karma – and probably impolite – to say anywhere else. Mountains, cool, dry weather, lots of green spaces, and people so nice you would swear they are all your best friend in disguise? Sign me up. And I didn’t even mention the Tattered Cover, an amazing local independent bookstore kind enough to host readings by some of my favorite authors.
Right where I am! We’ve had to move several times and I am DONE! 🙂
Right here in sweet Seattle, my favorite city on earth. Sure, there’s been a time or two when I’ve been momentarily wooed away by the lure of sandy beaches and warmer climates–even the lights of New York–but I know in my heart that I’ll never leave the Emerald City. I love the fir trees, the rain, the respect for good coffee, and especially the lack of pretense (gotta love a town where you feel beautiful in a sweater and yoga pants tucked into Uggs).
You know, I’m still reeling from yesterday’s guest blog by my career idol, romantic comedy goddess Jennifer Crusie. I think I would like to live in a cardboard box under her writing desk. Is that weird?
