Speaking of BAD GIRLS DON’T DIE, Katie is amazed and thrilled that the book has spent several days among the top selling books in’s Teen Fiction/Mysteries and Thrillers category–even some significant time in the #1 spot! When not busy taking screenshots of this exciting occurrence, Deb Katie can be found picking her jaw up off the floor.

Deb Meredith is pleased to announce that she has an interview tomorrow on Number One Novels . And she’ll be at MAYhem, the Bookhampton Mystery Festival next weekend, May 16 & 17–and on panels with some fantastic writers (like Linda Fairstein!).

  1. So glad to hear that Deb Kristina is reading my memoir, CONFESSIONS OF A PREP SCHOOL MOMMY HANDLER. Let me know (and your readers) what you think! And would love to be a guest at your ball one day!

    My next memoir, fyi, publishes June 2. It’s titled, AT LEAST IN THE CITY SOMEONE WOULD HEAR ME SCREAM (Random House), and is about a neurotic urban couple who uproot their lives, quit their jobs and leave culture, consumerism, cable (along with Starbuck’s, Trader Joe’s and Banana Republic) behind in order to move to the Michigan woods and recreate their modern-day Walden Pond (to hilarious, disastrous but life-changing results)! It’s gotten raves from Tom Perrotta and Jen Lancaster.

    Would love to have the Debs read and discuss!
