News from the Class of 2019 Debs:

K.A. Doore is a little flabbergasted that it’s March already. She’s desperately trying to get Book 3 edits done in the next week, and definitely not being distracted by the fact that Book 1 is showing up in all sorts of random places, like Amazon’s top picks for March SFF and Barnes and Noble’s Best Science Fiction & Fantasy Books of March, nosir.

Ohmygoodness this is getting a bit real huh.

Devi S. Laskar is also more than a little flabbergasted it’s already March. Gearing up for second round of The Atlas of Reds and Blues “cupcake & samosa” book tour: next stops before AWP – Book Passage March 6 (conversation with Claire Calderon) and Cafe Society March 23 (conversation with Elizabeth Rosner). Thanks so much for the shout-outs Meg Waite Clayton & SF Chronicle and Lou Fancher and SJ Mercury-News and Anjali Enjeti and Khabar Magazine.
Layne Fargo is gearing up for lots of conferences, including Murder and Mayhem and AWP in March. Will she see you there?
Stephanie Jimenez is wondering if she will finish the first draft of her second novel this month? She also just started reading Kristin Chen’s BURY WHAT WE CANNOT TAKE and is doing that thing where she is reading very haltingly because she just doesn’t want the book to end so soon! It’s so good!
Martine Fournier Watson discovered that The Dream Peddler is currently a staff pick at both Powell’s and Watermark Books! They had such lovely things to say, so many thanks! (And she totally did not realize this because she spends Friday nights drinking tea in her pajamas and scouring the farthest corners of the internet for signs of her book.)

See you next week when we blog about how our personality types inform our writing.
