From the 2011 Debs…
Anyone got Barbie-loving kids? Deb Elise’s latest Barbie DVD, Barbie: A Fashion Fairytale, will be released September 14th. Word on the street is it includes a fashion show featuring pets in beautifully plussed-out outfits. Deb Elise’s dog Riley has issued a statement telling the world this does not come from real life, and he would never be caught dead in crinolines.
Past Deb Updates…
Deb Sarah is thrilled to announce that NYT bestseller Emily Giffin has endorsed SKIPPING A BEAT, which will come out in February! Here is Emily’s quote: “Sarah Pekkanen has done it again. Original, engaging and soulful, SKIPPING A BEAT explores the complexity of marriage and what it really means to share a life. I fell in love with Julia, a funny, flawed, utterly real heroine, and felt the weight of her dilemma with every page, all the way through to the surprising, satisfying finish.”
Deb Dish — What the Debs are Reading!
I have been on a 2010 Deb spree! Actually read The Opposite of Me and Restoring Harmony (past-Debs Sarah and Joelle, respectively) awhile back, but last week I finished past-Deb Emily’s The Whole World, which had me hanging on every word. I’m now almost finished past-Deb Alicia’s Simply From Scratch, whose characters are living, breathing, and so engaging I’m sorry I’ll be leaving them soon. I’m blown away by the Deb talent all around me on this site — wow.
Outlander, by Diana Gabaldon. For the umpty-millionth time. On a 30-hour car trip, Jamie is a nice distraction!
Just started Stieg Larsson’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
Reading and loving an early copy of Deb Kim’s book All I Can Handle: I’m No Mother Teresa, and also going through the first pass pages of my own novel, The Violets of March, out next summer from Penguin. It’s a busy reading weekend!
