Congrats to Christy C, winner of a copy of Diana Gabaldon’s The Scottish Prisoner!
From the 2012 Debs…
Deb Joanne is pleased to finally be back at her pre-cruise weight. Whew!
Deb Erika was so happy to read that LITTLE GALE GUMBO was picked by The Sandusky Register as a reader’s favorite for 2011.
Deb Linda is thrilled to announce she finally got her Christmas tree up and the candles in the window. Oh, and the wreath on the front door. Never mind that the tree isn’t decorated. The lights are on it, so it looks good from the street. Distance lends enchantment, right?
Deb Rachel is super excited that the introduction and first chapter of MWF Seeking BFF are now online.
Past Deb News
Deb Eleanor‘s THE WEIRD SISTERS was picked by the Post-Dispatch as a favorite book of 2011!
Great news for Deb Sarah Jio! THE BUNGALOW is already going for a third and fourth printing before its release on 12/27!
Friends of the Debs
The Debs were thrilled to learn that Deb Guests Paul Elwork‘s THE GIRL WHO WOULD SPEAK FOR THE DEAD and Samuel Park‘s THIS BURNS MY HEART were picked for NPR’s Freshest Reads of 2011. Congratulations, gentlemen!
Deb Guest Allison Winn Scotch will be on tour with TLC Tours for THE SONG REMAINS THE SAME in March and April–click here for details!
Deb Dish — If you could pick a narrator for the audio version of your book, who would you choose?
Deb Joanne Oh, that’s a toughie, especially since I’m not really up on tween actors. But that said, even though she’s probably a bit old for it now, I would probably want Abigail Breslin, because who doesn’t love her?
Deb Erika I can certainly envision a female narrator. Maybe Susan Sarandon. Or Angela Bassett. Honestly, I could listen to that woman read the phone book. I adore her.
Deb Molly I would choose someone with a beautiful but totally thematically inappropriate voice like Rosalind Russell, which is probably why they don’t let us choose!
Deb Linda — Gosh, kind of a tough question! It would have to be a young woman (or at least one with a youthful voice), as my MC is female and the POV is first person. I’m thinking someone like Kristen Bell, the actress who played Veronica Mars in the TV series by the same name, would strike the right smart–and smartass–tone pretty easily, so maybe I’d go with her.
Deb Rachel — It’s going to be strange hearing someone else read my thoughts aloud, but I’m psyched about the choice of actress Annie Wood for the MWF Seeking BFF audiobook!

I had never thought of the issue of narrators of YA and MG. Do they pick actors of those age ranges?
I really have no idea. I just assumed.
Congrats on the great news, Eleanor!
Lots of good news–literary and otherwise! Linda, I’m impressed at your progress–I know I have promised some pralines to many good folks so I better get on that! (And there’s the vat of egg nog. Where are my priorities?!)
I still can’t believe it’s almost 2012…
Congrats, Erika and Eleanor, on your “favorite” status! Sarah, it’s fantastic that they’re already going into a third and fourth printing! Paul and Samuel, congrats on making NPR’s freshest reads list!
