John is tall, dark and Aspergian. He has Asperger’s syndrome, which falls on the autism spectrum. You probably know his brother, another famous writer named Augusten Burroughs.   John’s new book, Be Different was…

Deb Eleanor is Rooting for Deb Kim!

I read an ARC of Deb Kim’s All I Can Handle: I’m No Mother Teresa a month ago, and I’m still thinking about it.  This is high praise from someone who regularly watches movies and reads books only to discover halfway through that I have read or seen them before.   I have the memory of a goldfish.

While Deb Eleanor brought you a very thoughtful list of things Deb Elise’s new co-authored book with Ms. Hilary Duff reminded her of, I can’t help but confess that every time I think of the book or look at the cover I instantly think, fondly, of grape-flavored Dimetapp. Strange? I know! But the cover is incredibly engaging and transfixing to me. You see–I…

Don’t Judge a Book By Its (Really Great) Cover

One of the perks of being part of The Debutante Ball is being able to read advance reader copies of some wonderful books. It’s like being introduced to a whole new crowd of friends or tasty foods you might never have ordered or cities you’d never thought to visit. Elixir, by actress and author Hilary Duff (and co-written by Deb Elise) is a perfect example. I’m well past “Young Adult,” age though I…
