Election Week Debutante News Flash!


Congratulations to Patty Smith for winning a copy of FILL THE SKY by Kathy Sherbrooke! 

We send our thanks to Destiny Soria for being our guest on The Debutante Ball yesterday! If you haven’t already, go read her interview, featuring her debut, IRON CAST.

Lynn K. Hall is waiting, because sometimes that’s what being an author is all about! Waiting for pub day, waiting for early reviews, waiting to lose one’s mind…thank goodness she is in Chicago visiting long-time friends. Distraction and friendship are the perfect anecdote.

Amy Poeppel is thrilled that SMALL ADMISSIONS is featured in the December issue of Cosmo! Less than two months until the launch, and this shit is getting real! Also exciting: Amy went to see Lynn Nottage’s SWEAT at The Public Theater in New York – it is an amazing and powerful play. See it if you can!

Crystal King took advantage of early voting in her state! She also started NANOWRIMO in the hopes of finishing (or getting closer to finishing) her second novel, about an Italian Renaissance chef and his forbidden love. She also read Hemingway’s classic, A MOVEABLE FEAST, which she had not previously read. It’s a who’s who of all the people he knew in Paris in the 1920’s, including F. Scott Fitzgerald, Gertrude Stein, James Joyce and many more.

Jenni L. Walsh is happy/relieved/excited to have finished the first draft of her Bethany Hamilton book (as part of her Brave Like Me middle grade series). While that book is in the safe hands of her amazing CP, Jenni dove into researching a new project (that she can’t wait to tell you all about!).

Tiffany D. Jackson has a full spa day planned for election day after meeting some of her deadlines last week. She’s also flying high off her STAR review from KIRKUS for Allegedly!!
