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…

Falling Under Chicago, by Deb Danielle Younge-Ullman

There was a Chicago Version of Falling Under at one point, due to the request of my first agent who left the business before she got a chance to submit it to publishers. The agent I landed with preferred the Toronto setting and so it all got changed back, for which I am grateful. But there were some scenes that were written just for the Chicago version, scenes I had…

My Massive, Sappy Time Capsule by Deb Danielle Younge-Ullman

Don’t say I didn’t warn you… I have a few dozen diaries and journals I would put in my time capsule. The first is a little fake-blue-leather thing with a lock where I wrote the hilariously precocious longings of my fourth grade soul. The journals become less legible as time goes on until, by the time I was twenty-six and actually writing real journal entries while on stage during my…

To the Oppressor, With Love by Deb Danielle Younge-Ullman

Dear Oppressor, You don’t seem to know I exist. It’s understandable, I suppose. If you did notice me, it would be with indifference, possibly even disdain. That’s fine. I live to be abused and ignored, filled to the brim or stripped bare, pummeled with sharp objects, suffocated with unidentifiable and smelly things at the whim of others. I have witnessed untold decadence and misery. I am a stalwart, stoic carrier…

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…
