Deb News:

Deb Jenny got two wonderful quotes from fellow Debs for Sleeping with Ward Cleaver.

From Founder Kristy:

Jenny Gardiner’s debut novel offers a boisterous and engaging glimpse of the realities of marriage. As brash and funny as it is moving and insightful, SLEEPING WITH WARD CLEAVER will leave readers wanting more from this delightful new author.

And from Deb Eileen (who admitted to snorting water out her nose at the last line of the book):

You won’t kick Jenny Gardiner’s debut book out of bed for eating crackers! Sleeping with Ward Cleaver is a sassy and sexy read

Guest Debutant (we left out the “e” because this time it’s a guy!)

Please stop by Tuesday for our 60 Seconds with John Grisham interview. His latest novel, Playing for Pizza: A Novel, debuts Tuesday to wonderful reviews. The debs are in good company: rumor has it Stephen Colbert gets him Tuesday night for the Colbert Report!

The Debs will be featured this Monday on the popular and inspiring blog, Seize a Daisy in an article about our Guest Author Series entitled: “Dancing with the Stars at The Debutante Ball.” Thanks, once again, to our friend Larramie.

  1. Yes, it is an exciting time. I head out tomorrow for a few weeks of travelling. Just yesterday, to get ready, I mowed the lawn and the meadows down by the road.

    Hope to see some of you in my travels!

    Best wishes
