Congrats to Bookobsessedgirl who won Mark Di Vicenzo’s Buy Ketchup in May and Fly At Noon.
From the 2011 Debs…
Deb Eleanor is spending today at the South Carolina Book Festival, and is so excited to be appearing with past Deb Sarah Pekkanen at One More Page Books in Arlington, VA this Thursday, and then at the Gaithersburg Book Festival with Ron Charles this Saturday. What a week!
Deb Sarah’s book, The Violets of March, will appear in the June issue of Coastal Living magazine–on newsstands soon!
Deb Kim attended her high school reunion last night! (Never you mind which one! Hint, we wore leg warmers and skinny belts.)
Deb Tawna had the disconcerting experience of having the CEO at her day job announce Wednesday that he’d pre-ordered copies of Making Waves for every member of the office. She’s not sure how she feels about that, though her agent was quick to ask if she works in an office of 2,000 people (sadly, no).
Deb Elise is doing a giddy happy dance because she was nominated for her first EMMY!!! The writing staff of Dinosaur Train — Elise, Craig Bartlett, and Joe Purdy — was nominated for a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Writing in Animation. Hooray!
Friends of the Debs…
If you’re in the DC area, you must come to the Gaithersburg Book Festival next Saturday! Not only will Deb Eleanor and Deb Sarah Pekkanen be there, but so will our Deb friends Meg Waite Clayton, Caroline Leavitt, Rachel Machacek, and a ton of other authors we love! Please come visit!
Deb Dish — If You Had a Day With NOTHING You Had to Do, How Would You Spend It?
I’d give myself an outdoor day — something that felt like a challenging workout, but was seriously fun. For example, several months ago I went on a hike with my friend Corey. We started at seven a.m. and didn’t finish until 3 p.m. The hike was INSANE — straight uphill for massive stretches, precarious climbs over rushing streams, treacherous downhills with poor footing… I loved it. I’d do something like that again — absolutely exhilarating.
Reading. Preferably in or near some water. And if Ben Affleck and Nathan Fillion were to be there, shirtless, bringing me frozen grapes and ice water, that wouldn’t be a bad thing either.
I’d wake at the luxurious hour of 6:30am. Go to 9am kickboxing. Come home. Drink coffee and eat an organic chocolate yogurt parfait, shower, crawl into bed and read on my Kindle until at least 1pm. Then I would nap until 3pm. By then the gods would have caught me lazing and my house would likely catch fire….
I’d check myself into the spa and stay there for a very, very long time.
You do not want to hear my answer to this question. Trust me on that.
