From the 2017 Debs:

Tiffany D. Jackson is sitting in a hotel room, editing her ass off. BUT will be reading at Banned Books Week Open Mic event at Housing Works (NYC) on the 9/27. Check out the facebook invite! Oh, and by the way…EXACTLY FOUR MONTHS BEFORE ALLEGEDLY HITS STORES!! *faints* 

Lynn K. Hall Memoir? What memoir? Lynn has hardly thought about Caged Eyes or her laptop since she’s been in the Utah mountains racing in a 100-mile ultramarathon. As you read this she is probably either snoring under a stack of fleece blankets or eating all the pancakes.

Amy Poeppel has just started taking a Catapult class with Elissa Bassist (of The Rumpus) called “That’s What She Said.” The question is: Can Elissa teach her how to be funny? Is that too much to ask? Meanwhile, Amy’s piece “So You Have an Ugly Baby. Now What?” is on The Higgs Weldon. Check it out here.feastarc

Crystal King received her Advanced Readers Copies (ARC) this week. Holding the actual book in her hand is AWESOME! She might have cried a little. It will be going out to reviewers and she’s bracing herself!

Jenni L. Walsh is beyond thankful; this week she officially signed the contract for a new project, a series, that’ll be kicking off in Fall 2018. She’s got to sit on additional information for a bit longer while the contract is executed, but then she’ll be shouting it from the rooftops. Stay tuned!
