Congrats to Mary Rowe, winner of a copy of The Guest Book!

From the 2012 Debs…

Deb Joanne would like to thank everyone who came out to her big Launch Party Extravaganza yesterday. It was an amazing day, which I will remember forever and I’m overwhelmed with gratitude and warm-fuzzies. Pictures to come!

Deb Erika will be at Blue Ridge Books in Waynesville, NC, today at 3pm, helping to celebrate their 5th anniversary along with Deb Guest Kimberly Brock! If you’re in the area, she hopes you’ll come by!

Deb Molly has been having the most wonderful weekend at the Iowa City Book Festival, and looks forward to her duties as co-gamemaster of the Hunger Games (with author Wendy Delsol)!

Deb Linda wishes she could have been at Deb Joanne’s big Launch Party Extravaganza last night! I’ll bet it was amazing.

Deb Dish – When you learn your most beloved book is being made into a movie, do you want to see it–or run far, far away?

Deb Joanne – Usually, I want to see it, but I always worry and hope they do a good job. I got so geeked up when they started making the Narnia movies a few years ago and almost cried in the theatre to see a big part of my childhood up on the screen. I think those were done very well and definitely did the books justice. I am not sure if they’re going to do THE HORSE AND HIS BOY, but I sure hope so.

Deb Erika I’m with Joanne–my curiosity ALWAYS gets the best of me. I often think I see the two as inherently different experiences–or maybe that just helps me preserve my love of the book.

Deb Molly I like to see the movie — and then criticize it for all the ways it doesn’t live up to my imagination. 🙂

Deb Linda – Talk about mixed emotions! The excitement, the fear … gaaah. Terrifying, and yet so cool! Of course my curiosity would win out, and I’d be there, with a stomachache, biting my nails, praying it didn’t suck. *grin*
