New Dance Partners

From Literary Lady/Debutante Jenny Gardiner:

I'd like to invite you all to come on over to a grog (group blog) that I am thrilled to be a part of, The Debutante Ball.

The Debutante Ball was founded last year by Kristy Kiernan along with five other authors who were launching debut novels in 2007. It was a wonderful chance to bond with authors at similar points in their careers, and provide an opportunity for readers to become acquainted with books they might find enjoyable.

Last year's authors--Kristy Kiernan, Mia King, Tish Cohen, Jennifer McMahon, Eileen Cook and Anna David--turn over the reins this week, with Eileen Cook being the one carry-over author, as her debut date has been pushed back.

This year's authors, whose books will debut in 2008, are:
  • Danielle Younge-Ullman (FALLING UNDER)
  • Gail Konop Baker (CANCER IS A BITCH: Reflections on Midlife, Mortality, Motherhood and Marriage)
  • Eileen Cook (UNPREDICTABLE).
We hope you'll drop by to visit the Ball, bookmark the site if you like it, and check out the happenings as the year progresses!

Here's Jenny's bio from the Debutante blog:

Debutante Jenny Gardiner lives in Virginia with her husband and three kids and more pets than she needs. Her humorous yet poignant award-winning debut novel, SLEEPING WITH WARD CLEAVER, is about Claire Doolittle, who once was swept off her feet by Mr. Right, only to find herself 5 kids and 15 years later married to Mr. Always Right. Now about the only sweeping in her world involves a broom and dustpan, and she’s decided it’s time to fix what’s wrong in her life before it’s too late. This promising debut will be released by Dorchester in February 2008.
I'm glad she didn't say, "...with her husband and three pets and more kids than she needs."
