From the 2012 Debs…
Deb Joanne has no news other than she’s planning to sleep a lot in the coming days to make up for not sleeping in the weeks leading up to her launch. Except for the eighteen seconds it is going to take to enter Linda’s In a Fix Goodreads giveaway (see below).
Deb Linda is happy to announce that Tor is giving away ten copies of In a Fix over at GoodReads! Enter to win anytime between now and Aug. 10th. Couldn’t be easier!

Deb Dish -Since next week’s theme is marketing, which author do YOU think does a great job of marketing their work?
Deb Joanne – John Green, hands down. Between his Vlog Brothers videos to his campaign to sign every pre-ordered copy of THE FAULT IN OUR STARS before it came out, he’s no stranger to looking outside the box for his marketing ideas. It helps that he writes great books, but I think his ideas on how to promote his books are brilliant and very effective. But, uh, does anyone else find watching his videos really exhausting?
Deb Erika thinks there are MANY writers who make it look SO easy–among them, Claire Cook and Allison Winn Scotch, as well as our own Debs Eleanor Brown and Sarah Jio. I love the way they engage their readers in a very genuine way via social media. I’m also going to include Deb Joanne in my list because–wow–she has had some brilliant ideas when it comes to marketing her book, but I’m going to leave it to her to go into detail. Tune in tomorrow, folks…
Deb Linda — I love Susan Elizabeth Phillips’ approach. She has a great website (informative, and easy to navigate), and maintains an accessible presence on Facebook. She interacts with her readers in a friendly way, and keeps them genuinely engaged, not only with her books, but with herself. I like that in an author.
