News Flash: Publicists, Retreats, and Broken Arms

From the 2014 Debs…

Heather Webb had a great (and long) chat with her publicist for the first time! She’s totally psyched to be working with the Plume team for the launch of Becoming Josephine.

Lisa Alber is so excited about her book cover that she’s giving away a $50 Amazon gift certificate to a lucky commenter. Just say “hi!” on her blog. As you read this, she’s tucked away in a cozy B&B for a writers retreat weekend. Working on the next County Clare mystery!IMG_4184

Lori Rader-Day broke her arm falling off her treadmill. She’s finding it very hard to type!

Natalia Sylvester booked a trip to New York to attend the Comadres and Compadres Latino Writers Conference in October, and will also be meeting with her agent, editor, and the rest of her publisher’s team while she’s there. (She hearts NY.)

Susan Gloss found out that translation versions of VINTAGE will be published in Germany and Turkey.

  1. It seems so strange to see myself mentioned as a “former Deb!” But wonderful too. So much excitement happening for all of you. Well, except for Lori I guess, although maybe falling off a treadmill IS exciting. Just an excitement one could do without.

  2. Hello lovelies! Hope your first week of Debdom rocked the floor!!

    So sorry to hear about your arm, Lori! The day after school ended this summer, my eldest sweetie broke her arm–they let her pick out a snappy color for the cast wrap. A small consolation but she had fun showing off her hot pink cast–please tell me they let the grown-ups pick a color too!

  3. Wow, what an impressive list of authors and their achievements. I coach authors how to do their own publicity and will be watching to see what has worked to make the books successful and learn from it. OK, thanks so much and good luck to all. Edward Smith.
