Does a Ladder Matter?

Friday, January 4, 2019

      It’s coming home to me how often I start these posts with some comment about how I “don’t really do” whatever the topic of the week happens to be. I don’t live life with balance, I don’t dispense advice, I don’t blah blah blah. So let me hit you with a big surprise: I don’t do New Year’s resolutions. Truly, I don’t know that I’ve ever heard…


2018: Hope is like the sun

Monday, January 1, 2018

Happy New Year! For us Debs that means… our year is here! At last! This is both exciting and, well, terrifying. My book comes out in 105 days, and that simultaneously feels like it will never get here and like there’s still so much to do in so little time. I’m a high-functioning bundle of nerves on a good day, so I can only imagine how tightly-wound I’m likely to…


The Planner Has No Plan!!!

Friday, January 6, 2017

I’m a planner. A huge planner. I like to plan and execute. So things like New Year’s Resolutions are my jam! Because I get to set goals. Then I get to plan around those goals. I plan all things, down to the date and time, for every month. This year… I don’t have a plan. Because what I learned from last year, after all my planning, life tends to throw…


Reluctant Resolutions for a Writer

I can't believe it's been a year since I didn't become a better person
Tuesday, December 29, 2015

This week, we’re talking about resolutions, and I had to give a big sigh, because lately, I haven’t been much for them. For many years, I was go-getter, out to conquer the world, and I regularly made new year’s resolutions. I was an optimistic young thing who thought that if I voiced my ambitions to the universe that I would feel accountable and therefore achieve my goals. I dutifully wrote…


Louise’s Writing Resolutions

Monday, December 28, 2015

I love New Years resolutions. That time in between the rush of Christmas and the New Year is the perfect time to reflect and to make plans. 2015 was a thrilling year I won’t forget. I signed with my agent in January, sold THE CITY BAKER’S GUIDE TO COUNTRY LIVING (and a second book!) in March, and to several other foreign publishers in the spring. I spent the summer revising…


For Deb Kerry New Year Means New Book

In December of last year I was gifted with a brand new agent and my first ever publishing deal. This was pretty much the best Christmas present ever. It also meant that at New Year’s I was waiting on editorial comments for BETWEEN, and beginning to write Book Two, now affectionately known as WAKEWORLD. The days have flown by, and now here we are again, ready to ring in 2013….
