Deb Elise Sings Pomp and Circumstance

Is it just that I’m the YA author here, or does everyone else also think each Group Goodbye is high school graduation all over again?

I’m talking about saying goodbye to a…

Don’t Judge a Book By Its (Really Great) Cover

One of the perks of being part of The Debutante Ball is being able to read advance reader copies of some wonderful books. It’s like being introduced to a whole new crowd of friends or tasty foods you might never have ordered or cities you’d never thought to visit.
