News from the Class of 2019 Debs:

K.A. Doore is looking forward to starting her new dayjob on Monday. If by looking forward you mean pre-planning and over-analyzing every aspect of the potential day.
Otherwise she’s plodding along on a draft zero, one thousand words at a time.
Devi S. Laskar is trying so so hard to get organized. Alas, it the first weekend of 2019 and time already appears to be slipping away. Thanks so much for the shout-outs this week R.O. Kwon & Electric Literature, Marie Claire, NylonGeek SprinklesHello Giggles, Big Other! The Atlas of Reds and Blues comes out Feb. 5.
Layne Fargo turned in the proposal for her next book, and her reward is working on the final editing pass of her fabulous Pitch Wars mentee’s manuscript! (Okay, she also rewarded herself with some chocolate.)
Stephanie Jimenez is looking forward to her first day at The Wing on Monday as a scholarship recipient. She’s also anticipating some other good news this week — please put some good vibes out there on her behalf 😉
Martine Fournier Watson just realized that on Tuesday it will be exactly three months until The Dream Peddler comes out. She’s trying not to go into panic mode, and it kind of helps to note that Devi’s debut is much, much sooner than that.

See you next week when we blog about books we’re looking forward to in 2019 (besides our own!).
