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…

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,…

Yes, I Guess I Do Love the 70s by Deb Jess

Over Memorial Day weekend VH1 aired a marathon of I Love the (Insert Decade Du Jour). My husband and I happened to catch I Love the 70’s Volume II, and it was just what I needed to catch my breath after a whirlwind launch week. So yes! We journeyed down memory lane with Trapper John M.D., Mr. Whipple, Frank Zappa, Kristy McNichol, and Billy Joel, to name just a few…

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….

Driving Sideways by Jess Riley is a fabulous read, by Deb Lisa Daily

We donated my brother to science. Actually, we donated parts of him to science and the other parts to people who, well, needed his parts. I have wondered many times in the last few years whatever became of my brother’s kidneys, his eyes, his heart. I’ve also wondered whether or not the idea of cellular memory is really true. My brother was rambunctious, wickedly funny, a tender soul, a daredevil….

Go Jess Go! By Deb Jenny

When my husband was in high school he got to drive one of two cars. The first was a beat-up old orange Opel, the back of the car filled at all times with newspapers to be hauled to recycling (very advanced for the 70’s, mind you), and a humiliating-to-a-teenager bumper sticker that boasted: I MAY BE SLOW BUT I GO GO GO! His other car was the family station wagon,…

It’s Driving Sideways Week at The Debs! by Deb Gail

I don’t want to say too much about Jess Riley’s Driving Sideways because I’d rather you go directly to Amazon or your closest bookstore and order it immediately! Seriously, it’s THAT good. Driving Sideways is the story of Leigh, a recent kidney transplant recipient who decides to take a road trip to find her donor’s (Larry Resnick’s) family to discover whether she is channeling Larry Resnick and also make some…

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…
