The Debutante Ball Welcomes Kiersten White

Deb Tawna interviews…uh, Deb Tawna

Tawna: I was born in a space…

And a mom. I work…

Deb Eleanor’s Tuesday Housewarming Post

Welcome to Tuesday!  I’m Eleanor and I’ll be your Deb guide through Tuesdays this year.  Please do watch your step and don’t feed the camels – they tend to spit. I’ve had a lot of jobs over my life – teacher, temp, secretary, wedding coordinator – but I’ve always been a writer.  I’ve tried my hand at poetry (but I will never subject you to any of it), chick lit,…

Okay, first piece out of the gate for the new 2011 Debs… no pressure… just following five of the most incredibly talented and all-around menschy women on the web, all of whom just signed off with beautifully bittersweet farewells… I might need a cut man for this one.

Welcome Guest Author Kim Stagliano

We are happy to welcome Kim Stagliano, an up-and-coming author who has been in the submission phase of this business for a short while. I met Kim a few years back in an online writing group and quickly fell for her wit and charm. We’ve since even met in person and I can tell you she’s cute, smart and sassy, on top of it all! The thing about Kim that…
