Review News

Of Deb Katie Alender’s BAD GIRLS DON’T DIE, Kirkus Reviews says, “Strong characterization will draw readers in. Despite their realistic shortcomings, both primary and secondary characters are unique and satisfyingly complex.”

Graduate Deb News

Congratulations to founding Debutante Kristy Kiernan on the sale of her new novel to Berkley! This novel is about the emotional complications of in-vitro fertilization, in which a woman must grapple with the moral implications of learning she has an inheritable disease after her donated eggs have resulted in a child for her best friend.

Also congrats to founding Debutante Tish Cohen on the sale of her third novel, THE SATURDAY DAUGHTER, in which a sister and brother discover that the mother they thought abandoned them as children has actually been searching for them, and that their father, whose memory is decaying from Alzheimer’s, had kidnapped them away years ago, to Harper Perennial and Harper Canada.
