News Flash: Launch Parties, World Book Night, and a Writing Marathon

Congrats to Laura, who won a copy of Jennifer Laam’s THE SECRET DAUGHTER OF THE TSAR!

From the 2014 Debs…

world book nightHeather Webb had a week of writerly fun. She celebrated the launch of MRS.POE by Lynn Cullen at a Poe-themed party in Manhattan, and attended an all-day author event with Barbara Shapiro (THE ART FORGER) and Suzanne Palmieri (THE WITCH OF LITTLE ITALY) at the Katharine Hepburn Cultural Center in Connecticut.

Susan Gloss has teamed up with fellow Deb Lori on a word-count marathon. They’ve each committed to finishing their works-in-progress by November 30. Need a kick in the pants and want to join us? Leave a comment here or give us a shout-out on Twitter with #wordmarathon.

Lori Rader-Day is attending Magna Cum Murder in Indianapolis this week, but even bigger news is that THE BLACK HOUR is now available for pre-orders at Amazon (soon to be for Kindle and other vendors)!

Lisa Alber attended an annual ghost story weekend. Every year near Halloween her group of writing pals get together to write stories in hopes of creeping each other out. The creep factor was high indeed!

Natalia Sylvester attended the Texas Book Festival this weekend. It’s basically one of the highlights of the year, and definitely everything she looks forward to in October. 

From Former Debs…

A huge congratulations to former deb Eleanor Brown, whose novel, THE WEIRD SISTERS, was chosen for World Book Night 2014!

Susan Spann’s sparkly new cover released this week for her second novel in the Shinobi Mystery series BLADE OF THE SAMURAI. Leave a comment on her blog for a chance to win ninja prizes or gift cards to Amazon.
