Additional News from the 2017 Debs

Amy Poeppel is so happy to see SMALL ADMISSIONS on this holiday wish list by Brit + Co!

Crystal King has been recovering from a bout of illness and has written very little (make that nothing at all). But she’s been digging into the novel River By Night (out January 10, 2017) by fellow debut author, Erica Ferencik,  and is super excited that Almost Missed You (out March 28, 2017) by Jessica Strawser  is waiting in the wings!

Jenni L. Walsh was given an early Christmas present this week from her publisher: ARCs of BECOMING BONNIE! She may’ve startled the UPS man when she practically threw the door open and ripped the (very heavy) box out of his hands!

Tiffany D. Jackson is back stateside and is running a fun WATTPAD promo for ALLEGEDLY. Clink on the link to check out the first 10 pages!!


Lynn K. Hall can’t believe she’s receiving so many emails and social media messages from advanced readers. It’s incredible to get early support and cheers.
