From the 2015 Debs:

Colleen Oakley‘s debut BEFORE I GO was selected this week as a January 2015 Indie Next List pick by independent booksellers! Also, GoodReads is giving away 30 advanced copies. Enter to win it before you can buy it here.

Amy E. Reichert When it rains it comes down like one of those giant buckets at a waterpark. THE COINCIDENCE OF COCONUT CAKE is now available for pre-order on AmazonBooksamillion, iTunes, and many other places! You can also add it to your To-Read list on Goodreads. I also finished the first (and I hope only) round of copy edits and next week I can reveal the cover!

Karma Brown is one week away from completing draft one of book two, and would appreciate someone reminding her that all first drafts are sh*tty when she starts revisions. She’s also excited that galleys of COME AWAY WITH ME have gone to print, and can’t believe how quickly things are happening!

Sona Charaipotra is locking in dates for 2015 travels — including ALA Midwinter in Chicago in January, and RT in Dallas in May! More to come on that front — stay tuned to the news page for scoop.

Shelly King turned in pages of book two to her agent and her writing group. She is now drinking heavily while she awaits feedback.
