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…


Jenni L. Walsh Shares Her “Ass Cheeks on the Slats” Moment

Thursday, December 29, 2016

In honor of the launch of Amy Poeppel’s hilarious debut, SMALL ADMISSIONS, this week we’re writing on topics related to some of the book’s themes – parenting, school admissions, broken hearts, relationships, and friendships. Let’s first start by gushing over this book. I began reading on a particularly hard work week. I cozied up in bed. I sipped on a glass of wine. I spat that wine all over myself. I…


A Different Side of NYC: The Launch of UPTOWN THIEF

Uptown Thief by Aya de Leon
Tuesday, August 2, 2016

This week we celebrate the launch of Aya’s book, UPTOWN THIEF, which is a thrilling story of a Robin Hood–style madam in New York, Marisol, who steals from rich alpha males and runs a high-class prostitution business to fund her health clinic for women with nowhere else to turn. I’ve written elsewhere about reading out of genre, and I will say that UPTOWN THIEF is not a book that I…


The Debut of THE LOST GIRLS by Heather Young

THE LOST GIRLS by Heather Young
Tuesday, July 26, 2016

As the Tuesday blogger, I feel like I’m personally introducing Heather Young’s THE LOST GIRLS into the world, never mind that we’ve been talking about it on the blog for eleven months now and it’s been reviewed everywhere. But it’s Tuesday and today is the day that you can walk into any Barnes & Noble and most indie bookstores and pick up your own copy of THE LOST GIRLS or…


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…


5 More Reasons to Read COME AWAY WITH ME!

Thursday, August 27, 2015

Like my fellow Deb Amy, I sort of put off reading COME AWAY WITH ME for a while. I knew, with the inciting incident, that it would weigh heavily on me, and, of course, that crying was inevitable. I also knew that once I started reading it, the book would consume me. I wouldn’t be able to put it down. And of course I was right there, too. This is…


The Post Deb E Feels She Should Write in Verse

Yes, yes, I know “Deb E” could be Deb Eleanor as well as Deb Elise, but I wanted the title of the post to be in iambic pentameter, and that’s how I made it scan. Believe me, I totally want to geek out and write this whole post in iambic pentameter, and it’s only in the interest of time that I won’t. Deb Eleanor’s The Weird Sisters comes out this…
