Publish or Perish: Two Sides of the Same Coin

I was a competitive gymnast growing up and the vault one of my best events. At least until this one competition, when my teammate fumbled her vault by running right into it instead of hand springing over it. As I watched her try again – running into it again – two things occurred to me:…

Waiting to Exhale: How I Got an Agent & a Book Deal

Here’s what I’ve learned about The Call: it never happens when you think it will. Sure, we dream about it.

Deb Dana Has a Surprise Announcement

Last week, when I saw the topic for this week’s post, I thought, “UGH. A secret I can share? Do I have any of those?”

And then I got a call from my agent on Thursday.

What was this call about, you ask? Well, I can’t tell you quite yet, making it the perfect topic for this post. But suffice it to say, our conversation involved books. Specifically, books written by me. Also, a new publisher. And maybe exciting things like…contracts.

Have I piqued your interest? If so, then you may want to follow me on Twitter and/or like me on Facebook, where I will be making an announcement in a matter of days (or, by the time you read this, possibly hours). In the meantime…I’ll let your imagination run wild…

Stay tuned!

Contest winner! Congratulations Joelle! You’ve won a signed copy of Real Life & Liars and a love note from the rest of the Debs. Thanks for the support!

Deb Meredith is pleased to announce that her second book in the Lydia McKenzie series (tentatively called DEAD IN THE WATER) will be published next year by St. Martin’s Minotaur. Also, she had a terrific review in the San Jose Mercury-News which called POSED FOR MURDER “clever, original and eminently readable”.

Deb Kristina visits several Michigan towns this week: her hometown of Grand Rapids, Lansing, Grand Haven and Cadillac. If you’re anywhere nearby, check out the whole schedule here. REAL LIFE & LIARS also has received some lovely reviews, including this one from blogger S. Krishna (“The way the novel is written, the characters have their own lives – they were living before the story begins, and they continue to live after the last page has been turned.“) and this one from the Detroit Free Press, which calls LIARS well-written and “a page-turner.” Interviews with Deb Kristina can also be found in the Charlevoix Courier and at Number One Novels.

Did you miss Kristina interviewed on Authors on Air? Catch the podcast here, where she discusses whether Mira is based on a real person, her songwriting background, and her next book.

Deb Katie is thrilled to announce that Disney-Hyperion has decided to turn Bad Girls Don’t Die into a series! Look for Books 2 and 3 in spring 2011 and 2012.

We’re looking for the 2010 Class of Debs! Click here to learn more.
