Thank you so much to yesterday’s guest, Erin A. Craig! Pick up a copy of her amazing YA Gothic debut House of Salt and Sorrows Tuesday, August 6th, wherever books are sold!

News from the Class of 2019 Debs:

K.A. Doore is nearing the end of Camp NaNoWriMo and is going to reach her wordcount goal or die trying! …or maybe at least get really close.
In the meantime, she got to chat with Den of Geek last week about worldbuilding and queer characters, which was fun. Check it out!
Devi S. Laskar is hard at work on Book 2. Many thanks to the Decatur Book Festival! Will be speaking Aug 31 along side Tope Folarin on “Searching for Community and Home Amid Displacement” as part of the PEN America immigration track at the 14th annual literary festival held in Atlanta.
Layne Fargo is obsessed with this book blogger review that (very accurately) describes Temper as  “Like Smash, but with teeth.” Some other Temper sightings this week: Killer Beach Reads, Here’s What We’re Reading This Summer, July’s Best Debut Crime Novels and Thrillers.
Stephanie Jimenez
Martine Fournier Watson was thrilled to discover this week that The Dream Peddler is a staff pick at The Book Cellar in Chicago! She’d also like to thank Courtney Chipman at The Brazen Bull for her lovely review!

See you next week when we blog about our final debut novel of the year, Stephanie’s They Could Have Named Her Anything!
