News from the 2017 Debs

Crystal King has had a quiet writing week, getting back into the swing of a new 9-5 job as a social media professor for HubSpot Academy. But she’s also starting planning out book 3, about a Renaissance steward, Vincenzio Cervio, who carved his birds in the air with great flourish! This will mean translating his cookbook from Italian, a project she’s super excited about. It’s very strange to her that this will be her last newsflash update. How on earth did a whole year go by so fast?
Amy Poeppel had such a wonderful time at the paperback party for Georgia Clark’s THE REGULARS. Thanks to Georgia, Amy played “Never Have I Ever” with authors Charity Shumway, Stephanie Danler, Julie Pennell, and Grant Ginder. SO much fun! If you’re in the NYC area and haven’t been to Books Are Magic in Brooklyn, go immediately!
Lynn K. Hall is writing, scheduling readings, and preparing to talk to university and high school students this semester about CAGED EYES. So, you know, author-y things! It’s great to be back in the groove after a summer of distractions. (Or maybe a whole pub year of distractions?)

Jenni L. Walsh is so excited to finally have an official title for Book 2, which has gone through quite the transformation. It began as BEING BONNIE, the sequel to BECOMING BONNIE (Book 1). And while Book 2 is still a sequel, it’s very much a book that can stand on its own (without first having read BECOMING BONNIE). After going through a few different titles with  her publishing team, they finally landed on SIDE BY SIDE. This title was inspired by Bonnie’s real-life poem, The Trail’s End, and in particular, these few lines:

“Some day they’ll go down together
they’ll bury them side by side.
To few it’ll be grief,
to the law a relief
but it’s death for Bonnie and Clyde.”

Tiffany Jackson is gearing up for a hectic few weekends. Will be at Decatur Book Festival on Sunday Sept 3rd, Slice Literary Conference on Sunday Sept 10th, then Brooklyn Book Festival on Sunday, Sept 17th. XOXOXOXOXO
