Deb Friend news
Allison Winn Scotch continues to storm the publishing world. On the heels of her novel TIME OF MY LIFE reaching the New York Times bestseller list, we get word of a new book deal. As reported in Publishers Marketplace: “Allison Winn Scotch’s THE HAPPIEST DAYS OF MY LIFE, in which a perfectly content thirty-something woman is given the unwelcome ability to see into the future of everyone’s life but her own, and discovers that her marriage to her high school boyfriend might be rockier than she anticipated, that her dreams might be smaller than she realized, and that her happiness is in no way guaranteed unless she finds a way to steer fate back into her own hands, to Sarah Knight at Shaye Areheart Books, in a significant deal, by Elisabeth Weed at Weed Literary.” The book sounds wonderful. Go, Allison!
Also, longtime Deb readerJoanne Levy took not one, but TWO prizes in the RWA Chicklit Chapter “Get Your Stiletto in the Door” Contest! She took both first and fourth places with, respectively, SMALL MEDIUM AT LARGE and CLOSETS ARE FOR CLOTHES, in the young adult chicklit category, judged by Anica Rissi of Simon Pulse and agent Caryn Wiseman of Andrea Brown Literary Agency. Way to go, Joanne!
