News Flash for New Debs


Congratulations to Maddie Woods, Sophie Woods, Chris Von Turk, winners of Amy Poeppel’s SMALL ADMISSIONS, as part of our Tag to Win contest series on Facebook. The next contest will begin on 11/17 with a chance to win Tiffany D. Jackson’s ALLEGEDLY.

Beginning 9/17, you’ll have the opportunity to win our first Guest Author giveaway: Camille Perri’s fabulous debut novel, THE ASSISTANTS.

From the 2017 Debs:

Crystal King is finishing up editing her first type set pages (what the pages look like in print), and answering the reading guide/book club questions that will go into the back of Feast of Sorrow. She’s also been hard at work on her draft of her second novel, this time about a famous Renaissance chef. Her personal goal is to finish the draft by the end of the year. That means this article about How To Finish Your First Draft Quickly is rather apropos. She gives a huge thumbs up to the Pomodoro Technique described within! She’s also raving to her friends about the other Deb novels she’s started reading!

Jenni L. Walsh is hard at work, mentoring a Speculative Historical Fiction time-traveling story by Saran Van Goethem as part of Pitch Wars, a contest, where published authors/editors/industry pros choose a manuscript to work with over a 2-month span. It’s keeping her busy, but she’s still finding time to let a new historical WIP ruminate in her mind.

Tiffany D. Jackson is waking up from her social media hiatus, working tirelessly on her second novel. Her goal is to finish the draft by next week. In the meantime and between time, she’s started reading her fellow 2017 Debutante’s novels outside so she can enjoy these last precious days of summer.

Lynn Hall is shocked that she’s already scheduling readings and signings for the launch of Caged Eyes. It’s real! It’s happening! To ease her panic, she’s been immersed in the other 2017 Debutante’s novels. Spoiler alert: they are all AMAZING.

Amy Poeppel is in Germany, working on her new novel and finishing up final edits on Small Admissions. Before she left she had a marketing meeting at Simon & Schuster and met her fabulous publicist, Stephanie Mendoza. She just finished reading The City Baker’s Guide to Country Living by 2016 Deb Louise Miller and highly recommends it! Note: Crystal seconds this recommendation!

In closing, our thoughts are with those who lost their loved ones fifteen years ago during the tragic events of September 11th.
