Deb Danielle was at Book Expo Canada last week and did her first reading reading as part of the Speed Dating for First Time Authors and participated in a signing at the Penguin booth where she signed nearly 100 advance reading copies of Falling Under before they ran out.

Founder News:

Deb Mia’s September 2nd release, Sweet Life, just sold book club rights to Bookspan as a featured alternate for Doubleday, Literary Guild and Book of the Month clubs. NYT Bestselling author Susan Wiggs gave the book a glorious blurb: “SWEET LIFE is the ultimate ‘escape-and-find-yourself’ novel … funny, poignant, and filled with home truths any woman can relate to. This book is as warm and delicious as the recipes … a delightful indulgence!”

Deb Mia also has an amazingly sweet Hawaiian gift basket and book give-away going on (no purchase necessary but don’t let that stop you from buying as many copies of her books as you’d like!). Just go to her blog on the Sweet Life page at and tell her what’s sweet about YOUR life!

Deb Lisa is reading the 4-Hour Workweek by Timothy Ferriss.
Deb Eileen just finished reading Girls In Trucks by Katie Crouch.
