Springtime in New York by Deb Lisa Daily

I am in New York city, and it is a balmy 55 degrees. Now, I come from Florida, so I’m used to 85 degree weather at this time of year, but it feels like spring has started to seep into my brain. Why? My faithful assistant Ashley and I have hatched a scheme: We’re planning on kidnapping Deb Eileen at 5 am tomorrow morning, dressing her up in a strapless…

Do You Believe in Magic? by Deb Lisa Daily

My first true love was Shaun Cassidy. I was ten, he was twenty, and I plotted endlessly in my head about how when he was thirty I would be twenty and we could get married. I was certain he would wait for me. I planned my whole week around the Hardy Boys, and anxiously awaited the show. (And occasionally might have been brought to tears when it was a Nancy…

Am I Lucky or What? by Deb Lisa Daily

It’s 11:30 on Tuesday night and I’m thinking about being lucky. A friend of mine, the soon-to-be-published Abby Wittnebert said something the other night as we were drinking wine at Kristin Harmel’s book party. We were talking about publishing and luck and taking chances, and how bravery frequently pays off. We were sharing stories, and I told her that it was part of me to take chances, to try to…

Sibling Rivalry by Deb Lisa Daily

When we were kids, my brother and I fought over who got to eat their morning cereal with the sugar spoon. It made more sense at the time. The sugar spoon stood out among the other, more ordinary spoons in the utensil drawer. It was shorter, and had a rounder, um, spoon part. It was clearly special. I liked it because it was different, and I have always liked to…

It’s Only Temporary by Deb Lisa Daily

My first job, and my second, and my thirty-seventh were temp jobs. My mom’s good friend worked in a temp agency, and even though you were supposed to be eighteen, they let me go out on jobs right after my sixteenth birthday. I sold popcorn at pro football games. I answered the phone at every insurance company in town. I worked telethons and dental conventions. And I worked a whole…

The book opens with the heroine, Sophie, stealing her ex-boyfriend’s socks in a slightly twisted but hysterically funny plot to win him back.

Are You Sleeping With Ward Cleaver?

Deb Jenny’s book Sleeping With Ward Cleaver debuts this week! Jenny will tell you that Sleeping With Ward Cleaver is not exactly a romance. But to me, it was. I loved the idea of this book as a romance — not a romance novel — but a romance. Most chick flicks and romance novels end just as the relationship is beginning, when everything is fun and tingly and simple —…
