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? Group Goodbye.  You know what I mean, not like saying goodbye to far-flung relatives after a vacation.  Those people stay tethered to you, and you know you’ll all get together in the same way sometime in the future. I’m talking about saying goodbye to a…

Deb Kim’s Pictorial Book Tour

I’ve done more traveling since November 1st when my book debuted than I had in a dog’s age. Maybe even a tortoise’s age. Join me on a pictorial review of some of the highlights.  Thank you to every Mom who cajoled her husband/partner into watching the kids so she could come to my events or paid an outrageous fee to a sitter. Thanks to the fab folks at the TV stations…

Bon Voyeurage! Set Sail with Tawna Fenske’s Making Waves!

See that horrible romance sex pun in the headline? That is why Kim is NOT the romance Debutante for 2011.  Or ever!  After all, the romance genre has to be all about swollen members (I did read that term once while a kid perusing my aunt’s books in her guest room in Miami circa 1974 or so. It scarred me for life.)   And heaving bosoms. And throbby things. Romance is…

Stop! You Must Hop On…. Populazzi by Elise Allen!

Sorry, we’re a Dr. Seuss family and well, it just worked. Would you could you on a blog? Would you could you in the fog? If that’s someone  asking you to learn about, buy and DEVOUR Populazzi then the answer is YES! Congrats to Deb Elise on the launch of her YA/MAA (Hey, I loved the book and I’m a middle aged adult, so I think the genre is perfectly legit)…

Dream, Baby, Dream

I dream, therefore I am. To dream is human. Dreams keep us alive, give us hope, move us forward, connect us to the past. I’ve asked other autism Moms if they have ever dreamed of their child without autism. I haven’t. I wonder why? Perhaps because my heart would break and I would not wake up.  Have you ever had a dream so real you did not want to wake…

Voice… Choice? By Deb Kim.

I’ve been blogging for quite a few years now. I run a busy site called Age of Autism, and we moderate comments – like most blogs. There are a lot of reasons to comment mod. It keeps trolls at bay. Helps the flow of the site. Builds the theme and tone of the site. And you can use comment moderation to make sure the site is a safe haven for a…
