Office Feng Shui by Deb Eve

Ah, yes. The office. That’s long been a touchy issue for me – literally, because I’m so sensitive to my environment. Anyone out there like that? You actually have to “feel” a room before you can enter it? This makes short vacations rather difficult because it invariably takes me 48 hours before I can get comfortable in most places. On the other hand, I knew that I’d found my house…

News Flash, January 25

Deb Kristina was pleased to see this nice mention of Real Life & Liars on a website and blog devoted to Michigan authors: www.Mittenlit.com. “Mittenlit” is a great word! (Michigan’s lower peninsula looks like a mitten on the map, in case that fact doesn’t leap to mind for those readers outside the Great Lakes…) Deb Meredith is excited about her launch party for Posed for Murder on February 17, 2009…

News Flash, September 7

Debutantes past and present got a lovely mention in the Library Journal, with particular attention paid to Deb Tiffany’s The Little Giant of Aberdeen County as potentially “one of the big buzz books of the fall.” The Little Giant of Aberdeen County just received a starred review from Publisher’s Weekly, which said, “Baker’s bangup debut mixes the exuberant eccentricities of John Irving’s Garp, Anne Tyler’s relationship savvy and the plangent…

My dog ate my pearls, by Deb Katie

The first Debutante book I ever bought was Mia King’s Good Things, back in February 2007. And now here I am, a Deb myself, making my first post on the exact release date of her second novel, Sweet Life. Mia has been knee deep in the crazy/sweet life herself—please drop in and say hi at her beautimous website, MiaKing.com. Seriously. It’s so surreal that I was a fan of this…

The Good Life by Deb Mia

Okay. I have rewritten the opening of this post a million times, unsure of where to begin. I’m sure it won’t come as any surprise when I say that life following the debut of my novel, GOOD THINGS (Berkley Books, Feb 2007), was anticlimactic. Every author tells you this: they wake up on the morning of only to discover that they still have the same bad hair and dirty laundry…
