News from the 2017 Debs

Amy Poeppel had a blast reading at Robin Kall‘s Point Street Reading Series last week in Providence, RI. What a thrill to spend an evening with Fiona Davis, Hank Phillippi Ryan, Bob Perlow, and Rachel Hulin. And what a fabulous audience!!

Lynn K. Hall had an amazing experience in Argentina, making her way to the summit of Aconcagua in the Andes. We are so looking forward to getting details of her adventures! SO proud of you, Lynn!!

Jenni L. Walsh had a week of reading and writing. She finished a galley of ALMOST MISSED YOU by Jessica Strawser, out in March with St. Martin’s Press, and highly recommends it. And, she finished another chapter in her newest WIP. Not a bad week at all.

Tiffany D. Jackson is very excited to see her novel ALLEGEDLY on shelves next Tuesday – Yay!!! Tiffany’s launch will be at Powerhouse Arena this Wednesday. Join us!

Crystal King has been lining up all sorts of things relating to her launch in April. In the meantime, she zipped through the dystopian thriller THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS by M.R. Carey. Wow, just wow. She wants to read it again to dissect it for tips on writing a page-turner. And to watch the movie, which came out a few months ago.

THE LAST GIRLS by Heather YoungWe’ve heard excited news about 2016 Deb Heather Young: THE LOST GIRLS has been nominated for an Edgar Award for Best First Novel!! The Edgar Awards, if you don’t know, are like the Academy Awards for mysteries.  The winner will be announced in April in New York City at a super fancy party where Heather will don a ballgown! – We want red carpet pictures, Heather! Congratulations!!
