From the 2013 Debs… Deb Kerry really has no news of interest. Other than discovering that apple pie can be made without peeling the apples first. This is BIG news for busy writers everywhere! Deb Dana spent a lovely Thanksgiving with her extended family — and ate way too much pie! Deb Susan also enjoyed a relaxing and happy Thanksgiving with family and friends – and hopes everyone else enjoyed the holiday too!…

Deb Amy Loves Leftovers—In The Fridge And In The Manuscript

It’s the day after Thanksgiving so if you’re reading this, you’re either still in a triptophan stupor, you’re back from shopping at midnight, or you, like me, prefer to guard the leftover stuffing instead of to fight for the best deal on hat and mitten sets. And while many would say they don’t like leftovers, I think there is a lot to be said for making something last and revisiting…

Deb Tom Is Thankful for Distractions

 Gobble. GobbleGobbleGobbleGobble … Wait. English. Yes. Welcome to Thanksgiving Day at the Debutante Ball! The debutantes are all spending today with their families (and hopefully none of mine), so I – DEB TOM – agreed to fill in at the Ball today. (I might have stolen Deb Susan’s password without her knowing, but we’ll just make that our little secret, shall we?) Those of you in the United States are…

For Deb Kerry, Thanksgiving Comes A Little Late

I’m in a strange place when it comes to Thanksgiving, an awkward sort of betwixt and between. It’s a holiday that doesn’t quite fit – a slipper one half size too small, a sock with an intrusive seam.  Not that I don’t like the holiday – who could complain about turkey and mashed potatoes and dressing and cranberries and a day off work to spend time with family being thankful…

Congratulations to Laura, winner of last week’s giveaway contest! From the 2013 Debs… Deb Kerry has received her very first ever blurb for BETWEEN from the ever-s0-talented Robin Owens. She’s also giving away an advanced reader copy in celebration of her brand new website. Deb Dana recreated a dish she had at a restaurant – without a recipe – and is feeling pretty smug about it. (Oh, and she received another…

Deb Joanne Gives Thanks for the Little Things

You likely all know by now that I’m Canadian, (eh) which means I had my Thanksgiving last month.  So I’ve already been through the “I’m thankful for my family and friends and for where I live and my book deal and all my blessings, yadda, yadda, yadda” stuff.  So I thought I’d do a little twist on the Things I’m Thankful for theme and give a shout out to the…

Deb Eleanor is Grateful

We have a saying around this house when we’re complaining about something inconsequential – “That’s a first-world problem.”  There are people in this world who have a heck of a lot more to worry about – like access to clean water, twenty-plus years of civil war, the real threat of being sold into sexual slavery, bullying and abuse and simple survival. That doesn’t mean that there’s nothing in my life…

CONTEST WINNER! Congrats to Deb Sherlock who won Erin Blakemore’s The Heroine’s Bookshelf! From the 2011 Debs… Deb Kim is grinning from ear to ear having seen her book in a few stores now. It’s like seeing your baby on TV or something. I’m also grateful not to have embarrassed myself too badly at appearances and in interviews so far. NO rotten tomato stains on any of my clothes! Check…
