News Flash: January 22, 2012

Congrats to Sara of Stories & Sweet Potatoes, winner of a copy of Priceless Deception!

From the 2012 Debs…

Deb Joanne – has very exciting news – She has booked her launch party for July 14, 2012 to be held at Bryan Prince Bookseller in Hamilton, Ontario and you’re all invited! Just think – you can meet my mom! Also, a lovely twitter friend saw stacks of SMALL MEDIUM AT LARGE ARCs at ALA Midwinter! Huge thanks to Jo Whittemore for sharing!

Deb Erika was honored to add a few of her husband’s New Orleans’ recipes (including drinks–I’m looking at you, Deb Linda!) to upcoming Deb Guest Alex George’s reading group guide for his novel, A GOOD AMERICAN, which releases February 7th (And Alex will be here February 18th!)

Deb Molly’s Creative Writing I class at StoryStudio Chicago still has two open spots in it…… just saying!

Deb Rachel will be reading from MWF Seeking BFF this Thursday, 1/26, at Schuler Books & Music in Lansing, Michigan. She’d love to meet you there!

Past Deb News

Rights to Deb Sarah Pekkanen’s upcoming book These Girls are sold in China and Australia! These Girls will hit stores April 10.

Friends of the Debs

Deb guest Tayari Jones‘s novel SILVER SPARROW has been nominated for the NAACP Image Awards in the category of Outstanding Literary Work: Fiction. Congratulations, Tayari!

Deb Dish – Status Report: How’s everyone doing on those, ahem, NY’s resolutions?

Deb Joanne – Er…looking at this and realize I’m zero for 5 so far. Get back to me in a month, though, I’m sure I’ll be well on my way!

Deb Erika can’t remember her New Year’s resolutions–is that a bad sign?

As you may recall, Deb Molly makes resolutions after the fact, so she’s happy to report that her retroactive resolution to rearrange the guest room went very well. Also, her retroactive resolution to watch all of Downton Abbey has been a roaring success! Two for two!

Deb Linda–I’m happy to say I haven’t broken even one New Year’s resolution so far! And I don’t expect to in the future. (Okay, okay . . . so I didn’t make any. I find they’re much easier not to break if you don’t make them in the first place.)

Deb Rachel refuses to answer this question on the grounds that she may incriminate herself. Or just totally embarrass/shame herself.

  1. Hooray for getting your launch party on the books, Joanne! That’s so exciting!

    Erika, what’s this about drink recipes? *ears perking*

    1. Thanks, Linda. I presume you’ve already booked your flight. 😉

      And yay for more recipes that I love to look at and dream about and drool over but never make because of the sheer amount of butter in them.

    2. I think you’ll approve, Linda!

      What great news, Joanne–congrats, lady! (And rest assured–there is absolutely no butter in either of the drink recipes. Just saying. 😉 )
