Pub Day for Minor Dramas! What do I even SAY?!

Tuesday, February 4, 2020

My novel, Minor Dramas & Other Catastrophes, publishes today, and I have to admit, I feel a little teary just writing that. I never imagined when I started dragging myself out of bed at 4:45am to try writing that I’d have a book deal, that I’d be headed out on a multi-city tour to promote my novel, which has been featured in Real Simple, The New York Post, PopSugar, and…


Science and Love: The Ones We Choose

Wednesday, May 9, 2018

It is with massive excitement that I finally have the chance to review fellow Deb Julie Clark’s debut novel, The Ones We Choose. Julie is the last of us to publish, and having her book on my shelf alongside the others feel like a family reunion … which is a great segue into what her story is about. The great love of Paige Robson’s life is her son, Miles, whom…


It’s My Pub Week!!

Wednesday, February 8, 2017

Caged Eyes is now in bookstores!! I’ve waited a very, very long time to write that sentence. I began writing my memoir ten years ago. I started searching for agents three years ago. And I signed a book deal a year and a half ago. Like I said: I’ve waited a very, very long time to write that sentence! Throughout this process, I’ve wondered what this day would feel like….


Pub Day: MODERN GIRLS Goes Into the World

Tuesday, April 5, 2016

I’ve started this post at least twelve times, but keep deleting it because I can’t seem to find the right words. Today is my pub day. That deserves capitals. Today is my Pub Day. PUB DAY, people! MODERN GIRLS is officially in the world. Unreal. People have been asking how I’ll be spending my Pub Day, and the honest answer is “quietly.” If the snow is melted (yes, snow; Boston…


MODERN GIRLS and Family Expectations

MODERN GIRLS by Jennifer S. Brown
Monday, April 4, 2016

This week on the Debutante Ball is a big one—it’s pub week for our very own Jennifer S. Brown! Jennifer’s incredible novel MODERN GIRLS is the first of our books to be published, and we couldn’t have been luckier than to have Jennifer go through this process first. We have all been grateful recipients of Jennifer’s wisdom and experience. She constantly shares wonderful ideas, inspires us with her hard work…


Sona Is Inflicted With Overwhelmed Author Syndrome

Thursday, June 4, 2015

Two weeks now, my Deb Ball post has been late. And I blame one thing: Overwhelmed Author Syndrome. Last week, TINY PRETTY THINGS officially hit bookshelves. It was also the week of Teen Author Carnival, Dhonielle’s birthday, BEA, and a big #WeNeedDiverseBooks book signing at the fabulous La Casa Azul. Plus, Kavya’s school picnic, and Navdeep and I celebrated our tenth Vegas wedding anniversary (by going to see Wicked!). It was…


How Should Deb Eleanor Spend Her Publication Day?

Publication day for The Weird Sisters is finally here! This has been such a long time coming and there have been so many steps to the process, it’s only just starting to feel real.  I can’t even begin to count my blessings.  The Weird Sisters has been: named one of Amazon’s Best Books of the Month for January named one of Barnes & Noble’s Best Books of the Month for…

The Exciting Debut of Real Life and Liars by Deb Meredith

At long last, our fifth and final debut of the year–Kristina Riggle’s book Real Life and Liars. The title reminds me of that old joke about the liar who says he lies about everything. But if he lies about everything, isn’t that statement also a lie? Families often lie to one another, if only to protect each other, and the family Kristina creates her book is no exception. Real Life…

BAD GIRLS DON’T DIE… but they can whine! by Deb Katie

As I write this post, it’s Monday evening. I’m at the office, because my husband’s working late. The big excitement today was that the “honor system” candy dish came in $8.25 under, provoking a very entertaining and scathing email. I’m mad at myself because I ate too much over the weekend and haven’t worked out since Saturday. My left eye itches, because I have terrible hay fever. My dog has…
