Former Debs in the Wild:

Susan Spann (Debutante Class 2013), Heather Webb (Debutante Class 2014), and Kerry Schafer (Debutante Class 2013) led a workshop at the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writer’s conference last weekend, titled “50 Ways to Leave Your Literary Lover”, on how to survive and thrive despite the many  ups and downs of a writing career.



News from the 2018 Debs:

Cass Morris is working on line edits and reading portions of the text out loud to very unimpressed cats.

Lara Lillibridge, a former Key West resident, spent a lot of time glued to the news this week. You can read her essay about Key West on Huffington Post. She also turned 44 and ate a lot of cake, as in more than her fair share. Alctually more than half of the cake, to be honest.

Kimmery Martin is excited as all get out that 25 real people will soon be reading advance copies of The Queen of Hearts. Goodreads Giveaway! 25 copies! September 15th-19th! Enter HERE

Julie Clark is working on book 2 and revising back cover copy for THE ONES WE CHOOSE.  She thought she was done writing this type of query copy, but apparently not.

Kaitlyn Sage Patterson is neck deep in line edits for THE DIMINISHED and quietly questioning every sentence in her 400 page manuscript. Super fun. Having a big old time.


See you next week when we talk about balancing work, writing, and life!
