newsCongratulations to Melissa Crytzer Fry, winner of the copy of VANESSA AND HER SISTER by guest author Priya Parmar!

Check back next Sunday for this week’s winner of


From the 2015 Debs:

Colleen Oakley nearly peed her pants with excitement at the review of BEFORE I GO in People magazine this week (although, technically, it could also just be a side effect of being six months pregnant with twins). She’s counting down the days until her book launch — and is now in the single digits!!

Amy E. Reichert has eaten too many cookies as a result of panicking over all the changes she needs to make in her WIP (and maybe because she has no self control). She is also so proud and excited for the great reviews of Colleen’s book and is still laughing over Shelly’s dog stories below.

Karma Brown is still in holiday mode and eating far too much chocolate. She’s also been making a (tiny) dent in her to-be-read pile, and is enjoying the small break from her keyboard — but back at it soon!

Sona Charaipotra is quietly FREAKING OUT, because e-galleys of TINY PRETTY THINGS are now available on Edelweiss for media, bloggers, booksellers and librarians. Which means that actual strangers are now reading the book. Eeeps.

Shelly King met her family in Las Vegas for a “no one has to host” holiday. At home, her heroic pet sitter was dealing with the aftermath of dog vs. skunk and rescuing one of the dogs from getting pushed in the pool by the other dog. She’s pretty sure that after the freakout is over, this will all end up in her new novel somehow.
