#TinyPrettyThings Launch Week: A Big Blur

Thursday, May 28, 2015

Dhonielle and I have been working for this moment for nearly four years now — through countless drafts, a couple of agents, four editors, and endless edits. Also: new jobs, new apartments, a hurricane, a baby, and a hundred other little life events. So we should be relishing every moment right of launch week, right? But it doesn’t feel real. In fact, I still haven’t actually gotten to walk into…

Oh My God, Just, Oh My God (The Book Launch!)

Friday, March 21, 2014

I knew launch week was going to be great, but I didn’t realize just how fabulous and heady and exhausting and thrilling and joyous it would be. My god. Having my fellow debs along for the ride has been so great. We are a super team of cheerleaders for each other, and I’m so appreciative. Between a Facebook online party and Twitter shout-outs, between guest blog posts and an Authors on the…


Legends and Lore in KILMOON

Wednesday, March 19, 2014

The Irish do a lot of things well. Whiskey and lace, storytelling and step-dancing. One thing I love about Irish culture is all the legend and superstition surrounding it. And in KILMOON, Lisa Alber’s debut mystery, she puts all that lore to good use. Tidbits of saints, ancient rites, and rumors lend atmosphere, intrigue and even humor to the novel. In Chapter 21, for instance, we get a flashback glimpse…


Deb Kelly’s Book Delivers on its Lovely Cover Promise

Thursday, July 11, 2013

My first introduction to Deb Kelly came through the Debutante Ball, and my first introduction to Kelly’s book came from its lovely cover. Let’s take a moment and savor that image, shall we?   Kelly’s cover–and her book–highlight one of my favorite aspects of reading fiction: the beauty of art and words that work together to tell a story. Not all books deliver on the promises their covers make. Many…

SMALL MEDIUM AT LARGE Launch Week – Deb Joanne’s big, teary, thank you post.

It’s here. It’s really here. SMALL MEDIUM AT LARGE releases tomorrow*.  I’m such a bundle of emotions about this, but I wanted to take this opportunity to talk about a couple of things that surprised me about this long journey. But before I start, let’s discuss something really important: a giveaway. Everyone who comments on this post and the rest of the Debs’ posts this week (so through Friday) will…

THE PRINCESSES OF IOWA Launch Week – Deb Joanne’s Q&A with Molly

Guess what? It’s time for our third 2012 Deb Launch Week Extravaganza to celebrate THE PRINCESSES OF IOWA! You’re excited, right? SO ARE WE! In case you weren’t around for Erika’s and Rachel’s launch weeks, we like to mix things up and ask our Deb sisters questions about their books. So here’s the question I posed to Deb Molly: As a writer, one of the things I loved most about…
