News from the Class of 2019 Debs:

K.A. Doore is giving herself a little slack on NaNoWriMo so she can make some progress through her towering TBR pile.
Devi S. Laskar remains incapacitated by a bad cold while in the throes of #NaNoWriMo2018 as she attempts to finish a very, very rough draft of Book #2.
Layne Fargo just had her cover reveal for Temper on Book Riot! Check it out here. She’s also NaNo-ing away, still staying on track to finish 50k words by the end of the month. They might not be good words, but they are words.
Stephanie Jimenez is walking around somewhere in a really cold part of Canada, forgetting something she has to do, but eating lots of meals heavy on fromage, and hoping they help keep her warm.
Martine Fournier Watson is still working on book two. She will be working on book two forever. She is also celebrating recent election results in Michigan and getting ready for winter hibernation–it is snowing.

See you next week when we share our best querying tips!
