From the 2012 Debs…
Deb Joanne has booked an in-person event at the Indigo in Burlington, Ontario on Sunday, August 26th, at 1pm. If you’re in the area, she’d love to see you!
Deb Erika was thrilled to announce this news from Publisher’s Marketplace: Author of Little Gale Gumbo and The Mermaid Collector, Erika Marks’ SHORELINES, about the loves and secrets in a small Cape Cod town, the restoration of an old house, and the friction that has existed for generations between a wealthy “summer” family and a native family, again to Danielle Perez at NAL, in a two-book deal, by Rebecca Gradinger at Fletcher & Company (world).
Deb Linda has been watching the new book trailer for In a Fix more than she probably should, still finding it hard to believe this whole getting-a-book-published thing is really happening. She’s also pleased as can be with the Library Journal starred review, and hopes this means she might someday see her book on the shelf at her local library.

Deb Dish – Since we’re talking bad habits next week, let’s start things off on a positive note: What’s one habit you’ve proudly KICKED?
Deb Joanne – Smoking. I can now officially say I’ve been smoke-free for longer than I smoked. It feels pretty good most of the time, but once in a while…well, if you’ve ever smoked, you probably know what I’m talking about. Knowing that I’d probably end up divorced if I ever took it up again is an excellent motivator (along with that health thing) to stay away from cigarettes.
Deb Erika Don’t laugh. Cable. And how did I manage the feat? Cold turkey, people. We cancelled our cable years ago. But it was tough. I have always been a TV junkie. Now I get my fix the few times a year we stay at hotels.
Deb Linda Kicked? Gosh, um, let’s see … I still drink, eat junk food, and puff on an occasional cigar when I’m feeling especially badass. I’ve never bitten my fingernails or cracked my knuckles excessively, so I can’t claim to have quit those. Wait, I know! I’ve pretty much given up watching reality TV. Does that count?
