News from former Debs

2010 Deb Emily Winslow‘s memoir JANE DOE JANUARY, which came out last year in hardcover, is coming out in paperback August 29th. You can pre-order it here!
“Meticulously constructed and ultimately terrifying…Her story reveals a stark, maddening ­reality: that rape victims must often become their own legal advocates if they want an ­opportunity for retribution.” The New York Times
“With remarkable emotional insight and precision, mystery writer Winslow turns to memoir…Powerfully redemptive.” —Publishers Weekly
“A terrible story brilliantly told…with fluidity and wit and insight along with horror and outrage as they’re called for, as they are until the stunningly ironic end…Crystalline emotional clarity on every page.” —George Ernsberger for the Ellenville Shawangunk Journal and Sullivan County Democrat
“The book is a powerful testament to the efforts of police and lawyers to ensure a rapist is punished for his crimes. It is also a thorough investigation of the legal landscape for such cases. But most of all, JANE DOE JANUARY is a book about resilience, individual agency, and the value of friendship and kindness.” —Rob Cline for The Cedar Rapids Gazette
“JANE DOE JANUARY will break your heart and give you hope.” —Joie Des Livres Book Reviews

News from the 2017 Debs

Amy Poeppel had a great time at the inaugural Ode To Babel “Storytellers” event in Brooklyn this week. It was a great evening of readings.

For anyone in the Boston/RI area, please join Amy at Suite Tart next Sunday, August 6th for a paperback party, hosted by Point Street Reading Series! Tickets can be purchased here!

Lynn K. Hall is alternating between muddy hiking books and comfortable writing flipflops … depending on the mood and the weather!

Jenni L. Walsh received notes from her editor and has now moved back into her revision cave. But, before settling down, she did a two night marathon of Big Little Lives on HBO, based on Liane Moriarty’s novel. So good. Jenni highly recommends.

Tiffany Jackson is getting ready for a marathon of writing starting August 1st.

Crystal King finished the first draft for book two, THE SECRET CHEF! And Barnes & Noble included FEAST OF SORROW on their blog, Eight Fictional Beach Reads for Foodies!
