News from the 2017 Debs

Jenni L. Walsh is so excited to have turned in her Bonnie and Clyde crime-spree story to her editor! Also, that Shelf Awareness had such wonderful things to say about BECOMING BONNIE: “As [Bonnelyn’s] new life (complete with an appealing new boy, Clyde) barrels toward her old one on a collision course, Bonnelyn must decide what name she wants to make for herself. Walsh’s rollicking narrative will have readers rooting for Bonnelyn-turned-Bonnie every (dance) step of the way.”

Tiffany Jackson is busy writing!

Crystal King is getting ready for a fun event this week. If you are in the Boston area this upcoming Thursday, join Crystal at the Arlington Author Salon.
