News Flash, October 19

We experienced some technical difficulties Thursday and Friday, but we’re back online! So be sure to check out Deb Tiffany’s post: “The Hard and the Sweet” and Deb Eve’s post: “Sweet and Soggy Days”.

Deb Tiffany was recently interviewed by Publishers Weekly for a Q and A feature. Look for it in an upcoming issue. Also, she is happy to report that The Little Giant of Aberdeen County will be released as an audiobook by Blackstone, as well as be available in a large print edition. Bon vivant!

Deb Gail‘s media blitz for Cancer is a Bitch continues! CIAB was included in the “Best Books” column in OK! Magazine as funny and uplifting. On Tuesday at 9 a.m. Gail will be on WTMJ-TV in Milwaukee on the “Morning Blend” show, and later that day will be at a Books and Company event at Sweetie Pies, 45 E. Wisconsin Ave., Oconomowoc, Wisc., for dessert and coffee. Tickets are $5, there is a cash bar, and a percentage of ticket and book sales will be donated to Oconomowoc Women’s Health Center. Gail will be reading at the University Book Store in the Hilldale Shopping Center in Madison, Wisc. on Thursday. On Saturday, Gail will be a guest on a live radio call-in show in Cleves, Ohio called “Let’s Just Talk” on WCVX-AM from 9-9:30 a.m.
And Julie Peterson is the winner of last week’s contest in honor of the release of CIAB. Julie, we’ll get you a signed copy of Cancer is a Bitch and a few other goodies as well.

Friends of the Debs
Congratulations to friend of the Debs Allison Winn Scotch, whose book Time of My Life was named one of The Today Show’s 10 Can’t Miss Fall Reads!

Former Deb, Eileen Cook from the class of 2008, had a great review for her book Unpredictable from the Book Club Queen “Move over Bridget Jones and Rebecca Bloomwood! Sophie Kintock is the new leading lady of witty, female fiction.”

What We’re Reading
Deb Katie is reading Ned Vizzini’s YA-with-a-sci-fi-twist Be More Chill.

Deb Eve is reading graduate Deb Danielle’s Falling Under. Truth be told, Eve is stretching out the last ten pages, because she doesn’t want this book to end. It’s that good!

Deb Kristina is reading the manuscript of Maggie Dana’s forthcoming novel Beachcombing (Macmillan New Writing, June 2009), and wishing she had time to lose herself in it completely instead of reading it in nibbles. Still, enjoyable either way.
