Kimmery Gets A Little Sappy

Wednesday, February 21, 2018

When I first saw this week’s topic–finding support as a writer– I figured I’d discuss writer’s groups. But then my debut novel, The Queen of Hearts, was released last week, and I realized I have a new perspective on a new phase of this writing journey: the publication period. I’ve had some intense weeks in my life. I’m an ER doctor and a mother, so I’m often surrounded by literal…

The Queen of Hearts is HERE!!!!

Friday, February 16, 2018

First of all, can we talk about this cover? I love it with my whole heart. *wink* I have always been a huge fan of medical dramas both on screen and on the page, so THE QUEEN OF HEARTS was an easy sell for me. Sharp, funny, and charming, THE QUEEN OF HEARTS is everything that I wanted and more! Zadie and Emma are the kinds of characters we can…

The Queen of Hearts…and Instagram Posts

Thursday, February 15, 2018

Kimmery is the “queen” of amazing instagram photos. This happens to be my copy of The Queen of Hearts…functioning as a great Lego base. This book has something for everyone!!   Kimmery Martin is first out of the gate with her witty debut, THE QUEEN OF HEARTS. Centered around two best friends who met at camp, went to college together, and then medical school, Kimmery has intertwined their narratives so…

The Queen of Hearts Is Born!

Wednesday, February 14, 2018

  Welp. This is it. I have waited for this day to get here for the last five years. At first it was with a fatalistic acceptance that I was never going to achieve what I wanted, then timid hope, then cautious excitement, and now exhilaration. This may sound a bit overblown because I didn’t cure anyone, or ease anyone’s pain, or invent anything brilliant, or any of the things…

It’s The Launching of The Queen of Hearts!

Tuesday, February 13, 2018

It is the launch week for first of the 2018 Debs to debut—Kimmery Martin with THE QUEEN OF HEARTS! THE QUEEN OF HEARTS had me at hello, which in this case, was the gorgeous cover. Really, what could be more perfect than an anatomical heart formed out of flowers against a gorgeous robin’s egg blue?   Do you remember all those quizzes based on female friendships, like Are You a Monica,…

It’s Kimmery’s Release Week!

Monday, February 12, 2018

It’s finally time! Kimmery is the first of this year’s Debs to step out onto the ballroom floor!  The Queen of Hearts hits shelves tomorrow. This past weekend, the New York Times called it “insightful” and “affecting” — just one of several excellent reviews she’s gotten — and I’m so excited for the rest of the world to be able to step through the hospital doors and get to know Kimmery’s main…

Kimmery’s Total Lack of Self-Care

Wednesday, February 7, 2018

  It is a tad ironic that we are writing about self-care this week, because in the waning days before I become a published author—LESS THAN ONE WEEK AWAY, Y’ALL—I have morphed into a hygiene-free insomniac. I am rocking the French look when it comes to leg shaving, I’ve worn the same ancient pair of cashmere sweatpants for three days, and I wake up every morning at 3:00 am and…
