Newsflash: October 28, 2012

From the 2013 Debs…

Deb Dana is currently the featured author on Untitled Books’ My Week! The column refers to the UK edition of her book.

Deb Kerry heard a rumor that there are galleys headed her way (the book kind, not the ship kind). She hasn’t seen them yet, but she lives in hope.

Deb Kelly got a peek at her cover! She’s in love and cannot wait to share it with the world. (But she wait she must.)

Deb Susan received two fantastic blurbs for Claws of the Cat – but you’ll have to stay tuned to find out who gave them!


Past Deb News

Deb Joanne Levy’s SMALL MEDIUM AT LARGE received a great review at Jenn’s Bookshelves – and from a very special reviewer, too!

Deb Linda Grimes’s IN A FIX received a “Four Hearts” review from Everybody Needs a Little Romance – way to go Linda!

Deb Eleanor Brown’s THE WEIRD SISTERS was the answer to a Jeopardy! question – We’ll take “Things That Are Super-Cool for $1000, Alex!”


Deb Dish – What’s your all-time favorite Halloween costume (your own, or one you’ve seen)?

Deb Dana: In terms of my own, about nine or ten years ago I went as what we would now call a “Real Housewife,” but that was before such a TV show or franchise existed (what can I say, I was ahead of my time). I wore a velour tracksuit and donned an orange spray tan and bright blonde wig, and I carried around a fake mini dog and my own martini glass, which I kept filled all night. I also scrounged up a bunch of prescription pill bottles, which I filled with tic tacs, and let the bottles peek and spill out of my purse all night. It made for interesting conversation, to be sure.

Deb Kelly:  I have terrible Halloween costumes. Basically I use Halloween as an excuse to wear sweatpants in public. Dana’s costume would have been right up my alley. Maybe this year I will be a yoga instructor or a 1970’s gym coach.

Deb Kerry: I haven’t had a costume since I was a kid, or at least a very young adult. None of them were memorable, except for those cheap plastic masks that cut into your skin and made it nearly impossible to see. My brother went as a box one year, which I figured was pretty cool. 

Deb Susan: Back in the early 1990s my dad went to a costume party hosted by some friends. He went as the Scarecrow from the Wizard of Oz (his girlfriend went as Dorothy). The evening of the party, I went up to his house and used a glue gun to hot-glue straw into all the cuffs of his overalls and shirt and under his hat (along with a couple of pieces that inadvertently ended up glued to his socks, his wrist and the back of his neck – sorry Dad!). When we finished, he made a fantastic scarecrow. It’s my favorite, I think, because it let me reverse all the years of dad-and-mom helping me on Halloween.

Deb Amy: The year after I got divorced I went to a Halloween party as a black widow spider. I’d say that was my favorite! Second fave? The next year I went dressed all in gold and carried a shovel.  You guessed it! A gold digger!

Your Turn!! Tell us about your favorite Halloween costume – your own, your kids’, or one you saw wandering around. If you don’t have a favorite, tell us: are you dressing up this year?

  1. In Kindergarten, I went as Punky Brewster – remember her? And to this day, that is still the most awesome costume I’ve ever worn. Though, Mary Catherine Gallagher (my costume a few years ago) was a close second. Superstar!!

  2. My son went as an IRS auditor one year. The other kids weren’t frightened, but he scared the heck out of all the adults in the neighborhood. *grin*

      1. Black pants, white short-sleeved dress shirt w/a pocket protector, black tie & shoes, black briefcase. He collected candy in the briefcase. It was the scariest thing he could think of.
