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.

Do You Believe in Magic? by Deb Lisa Daily

My first true love was Shaun Cassidy. I was ten, he was twenty, and I plotted endlessly in my head about how when he was thirty I would be twenty and we could get married. I was certain he would wait for me. I planned my whole week around the Hardy Boys, and anxiously awaited the show. (And occasionally might have been brought to tears when it was a Nancy…
