Introducing Holidaze with the Debs

We are pleased to announce Holidaze With the Debs, a series of author events in the U.S. and Canada this holiday season. At bookstores, libraries and schools in the New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Toronto areas, members of the 2009 Debutantes will talk about their own books and other 2009 favorites. A full list of events is available below.

"Publishers are working with shrinking promotional budgets in this economy," notes Rhonda Stapleton, author of STUPID CUPID (Simon Pulse). "As first-time authors, we know that much of our promotion is going to have to come from us, and over the last year we've also learned how much fun it is to do events together. So we're especially excited to be able to talk to readers directly this holiday season."

Sigh. Stupid Chicago.

I would love to host and/or find school events for Debs in St. Louis, so if any of you are remotely nearby, send me an email at kidliterate at gmail dot com. I've got private all-girls high schools!
I'm in Kansas City and would love to come out to St. Louis. I'll send you a note...

For the jan 9 event in toronto, there's two events at the exact same place and time but with a slight difference in the authors...??
