I Never Knew When To Leave A Party- By (long term) Deb Eileen

I’m the only Founder who didn’t leave. It was certainly my plan, but when my publisher pushed back my pub date, I found myself introducing myself to a whole new class and sticking around for another year. I got to be the crusty older deb, the one who smoked cigarettes in the bathroom and threw around publishing wisdom like I knew what I was talking about. I find it hard…

Toronto, San Francisco, Toronto, New York, Toronto…whew! by Deb Danielle Younge-Ullman

Hello lovely friends, readers and fellow debs, I am in New York, having just turned around from my trip to San Francisco. I’m tired already but having a blast! And I hugely appreciate all the wonderful words from you all about Falling Under. I’m short on time and writing genius, so I hope you’ll forgive me for posting some pictures! (Figured out how to work the alternate uploader doo-hicky–with much…

Best Beach Reads by Deb Gail

I haven’t been to the beach yet this summer but I am going to Madeline Island next week (yay!) and the book I’m bringing is Barry Eisler’s Requiem for an Assassin which I bought after our hottest authors week and I figured if I was going to drool over his picture on his website I had to do the honorable thing and buy his book. Much to my surprise, I’m…

S’mores and the smell of gunpowder…

I spent many summers as a kid at my grandmother’s home on Lake Michigan. I used to feel bad for my poor parents who I assumed must be missing me on a near hourly basis. It never occurred to me at the time that perhaps they considered having me gone part of their vacation. My grandmother would house, feed, and corral me and all of my cousins (I think we’re…

I am the most boring person alive- by Deb Eileen

I opened up my purse and dumped it onto the table. I was hoping that there might be something really interesting that had fallen to the bottom- but nope. Based on the contents of my purse I am the most boring person alive. My purse contains the following: – one cell phone – one Moleskin journal to write down inspiration for new novel (or grocery list) – one pen that…

Get that Post up STAT! by Deb Jess

Okay, here’s what’s going on: the city in which I live has received EIGHT inches of rain since last weekend (3 inches alone in the last few hours), and 30 city streets and major county and Interstate highways are now closed. There are COUCHES and CARS floating in flooded roads, four tornadoes have touched down in neighboring counties in the last few hours, and while my Internet connection is still…

My Hot 20 by Deb Danielle Younge-Ullman

For me, talent is one of the biggest factors in making someone ‘hot’ and so is generosity. These are the two factors I used for this list, with slightly more weight given for talent–ie everyone on the list is talented and some are also people I know to be very generous. (Please note that many of these authors are also physically hot and a few of them also create work…

The 20 Hottest Authors Alive by Deb Lisa Daily

I’m not sure who came up with this idea, but I think it’s pure genius. If it was me, I was probably drooling over a photo of John Grisham at the time, whom I have had a crush on since college. In no particular order, my picks for 20 Hottest Authors are:Kristen Harmel (Hell-o, the woman is so hot even Patrick Dempsey noticed.) Adena Halpern Hank Philippi Ryan Maggie Marr…

20 Hottest Authors by Deb Gail

I’ve been thinking about this topic a lot since it was first proposed and thinking how much I like it but that makes me wonder if that means I’m superficial since I immediately interpreted “hot” as meaning sexy or attractive or does that mean that I’m just caught up in this whole list thing that seems to be a trend or that I’m over-thinking the whole thing or… … okay,…
