FROM UNSEEN FIRE Release Eve

Monday, April 16, 2018

“So tedious is this day As is the night before some festival To an impatient child that hath new robes And may not wear them” –Juliet, Romeo and Juliet So tomorrow’s the day. I’ve wanted to be a novelist since I was 11. I’ve been working on this book for six and a half years. And tomorrow, it becomes real. Really, truly real. Is it okay to admit I sort…

In Which Julie Live-Texts Reading The Diminished With Kaitlyn

Thursday, April 12, 2018

In a world where everyone is born a twin, Vi and Bo are the outcasts. Vi because her twin died in infancy, and Bo because he was single-born, and thus destined to rule. There is love and betrayal and fierce allies in a world that slightly ours, and yet couldn’t be more different. It’s better. Mostly. Maybe. I REALLY NEED TO READ BOOK TWO TO ANSWER THIS QUESTION.   One…

THE DIMINISHED: It’s What You’re Looking For

Monday, April 9, 2018

The Diminished scratches so. many. itches. Kaitlyn’s book is the one of my fellow 2018 Debs’ that is closest to being in the world I know. YA SFF and adult SFF do not live that far apart, and sometimes the distinguishment is really down to where any given bookstore feels like shelving things. Many authors of one also write the other (I don’t know if I ever will, being over-fond…

Lara’s Remarkable Memoir

Wednesday, April 4, 2018

  Yesterday was the release day for Lara’s memoir. Over the past half-year, I’ve grown to adore both Lara and her writing as I’ve gotten to know her as a colleague on the Debutante Ball. I’ve read many a memoir before so I knew to expect a lot of personal information, but this is the first time I’ve read one written by someone I know. And man, was I surprised….

The Queen of Hearts Is Born!

Wednesday, February 14, 2018

  Welp. This is it. I have waited for this day to get here for the last five years. At first it was with a fatalistic acceptance that I was never going to achieve what I wanted, then timid hope, then cautious excitement, and now exhilaration. This may sound a bit overblown because I didn’t cure anyone, or ease anyone’s pain, or invent anything brilliant, or any of the things…

It’s Kimmery’s Release Week!

Monday, February 12, 2018

It’s finally time! Kimmery is the first of this year’s Debs to step out onto the ballroom floor!  The Queen of Hearts hits shelves tomorrow. This past weekend, the New York Times called it “insightful” and “affecting” — just one of several excellent reviews she’s gotten — and I’m so excited for the rest of the world to be able to step through the hospital doors and get to know Kimmery’s main…

Jenni L. Walsh is ‘Bonnelyn’ from BECOMING BONNIE

Thursday, May 11, 2017

This week, for my launch of BECOMING BONNIE (!!!), I’ve asked each of my Deb sisters to take a quiz that tells them which member of the Bonnie and Clyde’s gang they are. Now, it’s my turn! And…. I’m…. And, I gotta say, I think this is pretty spot on. I’m a church-going gal and, if I ever make a name for myself, I strive to do it in a honest…

I LIKED MY LIFE Makes Us Think About Life

Thursday, February 2, 2017

It’s a big week for Abby Fabiaschi. By now, you should know… it’s her launch week! Abby rocked it as a Deb last year, but when her publication date did a dance from 2016 to 2017, we wanted to make sure she had a full debut with us. So this week, our posts are aligning with some themes found in I LIKED MY LIFE and we’re writing about what we’ve learned from…

So, We’re All In Agreement; ALLEGEDLY is Amazing

Thursday, January 26, 2017

This week, we’re celebrating the release of ALLEGEDLY by our very own Tiffany D. Jackson. If you haven’t yet read Crystal, Amy, or Lynn‘s posts, please do so. They are great and this book deserves every second of attention. And, that’s not just me saying so, though I did have this to say about the book… The books I enjoy most are the ones where I feel like I’m experiencing…

Deb Susan Loves What THE GLASS WIVES Says About Family

When I read THE GLASS WIVES, I found myself moved by Deb Amy’s writing, drawn to her protagonist (Evie) and emotionally involved in the story and its outcome. I read the book in a single day, which is testament to Deb Amy’s writing and  character-development skills. Deb Amy’s novel took me on an emotional roller-coaster in which I alternately pulled for Evie’s happiness and shared in her frustrations. But most…
