The Good Life by Deb Mia

Okay. I have rewritten the opening of this post a million times, unsure of where to begin. I’m sure it won’t come as any surprise when I say that life following the debut of my novel, GOOD THINGS (Berkley Books, Feb 2007), was anticlimactic. Every author tells you this: they wake up on the morning of only to discover that they still have the same bad hair and dirty laundry…

Schooled by Guest Blogger Anisha Lakhani

The Debs are delighted to welcome debut novelist Anisha Lakhani as our guest today, author of the very funny and unputdownable Schooled>. There never was a grog, in the history of grogs, that I wished more fervently would become an actual manifestation of its title than The Debutante Ball. Blue blood will be replaced by blue ink, and new authors wearing white will dance-all-night like Eliza Doolittle on the arms…

What’s Your Bizarre Beauty Secret? by Deb Danielle

Well, I’m looking at the other deb’s beauty suggestions this week and I’m surprised that no one mentioned hemroid cream. Seriously. I have a close friend who was in the beauty industry (which spends its $ making women feel insecure so they’ll buy products to make themselves feel more secure, but that’s a different post) and a few years ago everyone in the industry had hemroid cream in their purses…

Beat Me, Whip Me, Send Me on Book Tour by Deb Lisa Daily

The business of publishing can really knock the wind out of you. There are dozens of people involved in turning a big stack of paper into a book — the writer, agents, editors, publicists, marketing people, print managers, sales people and tons of support staff. But sometimes it feels like the loneliest gig in the world. If it’s your first book, you probably won’t go on tour. You probably won’t…

Driving Sideways by Jess Riley is a fabulous read, by Deb Lisa Daily

We donated my brother to science. Actually, we donated parts of him to science and the other parts to people who, well, needed his parts. I have wondered many times in the last few years whatever became of my brother’s kidneys, his eyes, his heart. I’ve also wondered whether or not the idea of cellular memory is really true. My brother was rambunctious, wickedly funny, a tender soul, a daredevil….

In Case of Emergency…by Deb Jess

I was practically rubbing my hands together with glee as I anticipated writing this post. Publishing emergencies…publishing emergencies? Have I got some publishing emergencies for YOU! Okay, it’s not so wild as all that. Before I signed a contract with my agent, I thought that every rejection was a publishing emergency. Eventually I realized that each rejection was like a little piece of disappointed gold, because though I badly wanted…

Book Tour 9-1-1 by Deb Lisa Daily

Last night I had an idea for a new cable television show. It would be sort of like SuperNanny, except instead of convincing delinquent, tamper-prone four-year-olds not to flush Sparkles, the family hamster, down the toilet; quick-thinking publicists would jet off across the country to help authors faced with dire publishing emergencies. Or maybe they’d travel in a nitro-powered bookmobile. The show would be called BOOK TOUR 9-1-1. Armed with…
