A Numbers Game by Deb Mia

Who would have thought that after all the angst surrounding the dream of publication (one I’ve had for a LONG time, as in … forever), I would let my debut novel out into the real world under a pseudonym? The reasons why are long and varied (you can get the entire 411 from my website), but here was how I came up with the name I did, the one you…

Cooking and Writing by Deb Mia

I don’t do this often, but I am going off-topic this week to talk about food and writing. I’ve already blogged about this (Writing and Recipes – The Perfect Pairing) but I can’t help it – I have food on the brain. At the back of my novel, GOOD THINGS, there is a selection of recipes from the book. They’re all taken from the story line, which revolves around my…

Debs in Review! Sandi of CK2S Kwips and Kritiques gave Good Things 5 out of 5 clovers! “I have to be truthful and tell you that I didn’t get a good read. I got a great read! This first effort by this new author had me turning pages late into the night, and taking every opportunity presented to me to read until the last page was turned. If I were…
