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,…

Close Encounters with Unspeakable Things in New York City by Deb Danielle Younge-Ullman

I had an exciting day Tuesday, one that included a train ride into NYC, a trip to the Penguin building, my first ever podcast, a visit with my editor, meeting a bunch of the publicity people, lunch with my publicist, a visit with my agent and checking out a possible venue for my NY launch party in August. I could write an entire post about it, but I just can’t…

On the Road by Deb Danielle Younge-Ullman

Look out! I’m off topic and on the road. Specifically, I’m on my way to New Jersey to visit family and next week I’m heading into NYC to do a podcast at Penguin, have lunch with my publicist and scout locations for my NY launch party. But I’m really off topic because, as my fellow debs know, I’m little stressed out and overwhelmed this week, which means it’s hard to…

Driving Sideways Blazes a Trail by Deb Danielle Younge-Ullman

So yesterday, Jess was telling us how virtuous she was being, avoiding checking her Amazon ranking for Driving Sideways. This is an bad obsession for authors, but we all do it, even me, which is quite pathetic since my book won’t be out for a over two months. I stare at the number (currently in the millions, I think, #1 being the best) like it’s some kind of crystal ball….

Hagen Daz and Having It All by Deb Danielle Younge-Ullman

I should probably skip past the part where I went out for milk on Saturday night (eve of Mother’s Day) and bought not only the milk, but a novel I had no official reason to read and a pint of Hagen Daz. I certainly shouldn’t admit I sat in the grocery store “bistro” for over an hour, ate the entire pint and read most of the book. Sadly, it wasn’t…

Dirt on the Debs by Deb Danielle Younge-Ullman

Okay, I don’t actually have dirt, but I like alliteration, needed a title and figured it might catch your attention. And I do have some behind the scenes tidbits to share that are interesting, if not particularly dirty. We started as strangers back in July and had to divvy up jobs, learn how to use the site, post our blogs etc. About 200 emails later, with a huge amount of…

Polluted in Toronto by Deb Danielle Younge-Ullman

The Oppressor and I have a love-hate relationship with living in the city. We hate the expense, the smog and the stress of rushing around all the time. We often rhapsodize about the acres we could live on in the country for the same $ we paid to live on our postage stamp piece of property in Toronto. The air would be cleaner and we would all run free and…

Drinking with Don Quixote by Deb Danielle Younge-Ullman

Have mercy on me, dear readers. Because I cannot do justice to the topic this week. I have a wonderful trip to tell you about but there was so much in it that cannot be captured and it all comes out of me in a bit of a tumble. Nevertheless… A few years ago I received a phenomenal gift: a trip to Spain. A decadent, beautiful, month long trip with…
