News Flash: Publicists, Retreats, and Broken Arms

Sunday, September 8, 2013

From the 2014 Debs… Heather Webb had a great (and long) chat with her publicist for the first time! She’s totally psyched to be working with the Plume team for the launch of Becoming Josephine. Lisa Alber is so excited about her book cover that she’s giving away a $50 Amazon gift certificate to a lucky commenter. Just say “hi!” on her blog. As you read this, she’s tucked away…

Deb Kerry’s Writing Journey is the Ultimate Road Trip

Monday, August 12, 2013

Road trip. Can you feel the lure? Just whisper those two words to me and I’m tempted to walk away from all of my responsibilities, pack a bag, buy some snacks, and cue up the music. My heart sings to me of  freedom, adventure, and the discovery of new and interesting places. On the contrary, heading for a specific destination on a timeline is misery. Within a couple of hours…

I’m a Reject, You’re a Reject, and Why This is Okay

Rejection sucks. Big time. I’m pretty sure we can all agree on that. But the truth is, nobody gets through this life without experiencing it somewhere along the way, no matter how rich or beautiful or talented you might happen to be. Everybody’s been there. Some other kid gets the part you wanted in the school play. Another candidate is selected for the job. The person you are sure is…

PENGUINS!

When I first heard about Deb Kerry’s novel, BETWEEN, the fantasy lover in me rejoiced. I’ve loved fantasy and sci-fi all my life, and BETWEEN sounded great. Then I heard about the penguin. In fairness, I have a *thing* for penguins. Always have. I can spend hours in the penguin exhibit at Sea World or the zoo. The Madagascar penguins are my Firefox theme. And all my life, I’ve found…

Deb Susan Loves All the New Beginnings

I’ve always loved beginnings, and New Year’s Day in particular. New Year’s Day is the stuff of dreams, its potential limited only by imagination. This particular year holds more exciting potential than any other I can remember. It won’t be as emotional as the year I married my husband, or as life-changing as the year I knew I would first hold my son in my arms. But numerically speaking, 2013’s…

A Funny Thing Happened at Deb Kerry’s House

This week we Debs are supposed to regale you with funny family stories. This has turned out to be a surprisingly difficult task. I know there are lots of funny stories in my family, because I distinctly remember sitting around re-telling them and laughing our heads off while doing so. But when it came to the part about blogging, I ran into a problem. Most of the stories that come…

Deb Kerry Naked in Shower With Snail. Photos Included.

Surprise!   Welcome to Surprise Week here at the Ball. Seriously – if you thought I would post pictures of me naked in the shower with a snail – or naked at all – then I am the one who is truly surprised. You can blame the title on my fellow Debs who dared me. That said, many surprising things have taken place in both my humble bathroom and my…

Deb Kerry Finds Humor in the Dark Places

We stand in a forlorn little clump on the funeral parlor sales floor – my brother, my mother, and I – attempting to pick out a casket for a man who can’t possibly be dead. We are all a little lost, not sure yet who we are without him or whether the family center will hold. One thing we all see for certain but don’t know how to say: the…
