[News Flash] February 24, 2019

Thank you so much to yesterday’s guest, YOU! If you haven’t already, please answer a question in the comments so we can get to know you better. And please do share our post on Facebook and/or retweeting the following tweet (make sure you follow @DebutanteBall on Twitter too!) so that all our fans have a chance to introduce themselves!

News from the Class of 2019 Debs:

K.A. Doore got a sneak peak (hear??) of The Perfect Assassin‘s audiobook this week. You can have a listen, too! Also her publisher, Tor, is giving away two (2) final copies of the book over here – but enter soon because you only have through the 24th!
Devi S. Laskar is catching up this weekend, and thrilled to have finished the first leg of the ‘cupcake & samosa’ book tour without incident or injury — thrilled, too, to see fellow deb Stephanie Jimenez IRL. Thanks for the thoughtful reviews of The Atlas of Reds and Blues Ilana Masad & The Washington Post and Meredith Boe & The Chicago Review of Books.
Layne Fargo is ready for winter to go away now, please. But she’s keeping warm this weekend with a staycation to celebrate her 13th anniversary with her partner! She also spread the Save the Cat gospel at a fun panel on story structure for Sisters in Crime Chicagoland yesterday.
Stephanie Jimenez is very excited for spring, like Layne! Also, it was fantastic to see Devi Laskar at her McNally Jackson event last week. And this weekend, she even sold some furniture on Craigslist and cleaned her room. A good friend of hers called her “well-adjusted” on Tuesday. She’s truly an inspiration to her past teenage self that once looked toward the future in breathless wonder.
Martine Fournier Watson received another kind review for The Dream Peddler, this time from Publisher’s Weekly. They likened her to Ray Bradbury (!) and thought the book would have “broad appeal.” Hurray!

See you next week when we blog about where we find inspiration (besides books!).
