News from the Past Debs:

  • We are THRILLED to announce that Lisa Daily (Debutante Ball class of ’08) has just launched a brand new writing advice YouTube channel where she’ll be answering all your writing, author life, and how-to-get-published questions, and doling out practical tips while she nags the crap out of you to finish your book. And a big PERK for you Deb Ball followers: Mention you’re a fan of the Debutante Ball and she’ll answer your writing question in a future video! You can check it out and subscribe here!And a little bit more about Lisa: Lisa is a bestselling, award-winning, traditionally published (Penguin, Random House, St. Martins) author of both fiction and non-fiction. One of her favorite things about being a writer is helping aspiring authors get published. (Aside from seeing her new book in a bookstore for the first time (never gets old); meeting readers (the BEST!); and writing books all day at the beach or in her pajamas.)
