If We Lived Here, Lindsey J. Palmer

Razor-sharp and thought-provoking, Lindsey J. Palmer’s incisive new novel both celebrates and skewers modern relationships and their milestones, offering a witty and wise look at what it takes to commit–to love, to a home, and to the life that’s right for you.
Palmer
After three years of dating and trading nights at their respective New York City apartments, Emma Feit and Nick O’Hare are moving in together. Or they will be, as soon as they find the right place. For two happily-in-love professionals–Nick’s a teacher, Emma tutors college-bound teens–with good credit and stellar references, how hard can it be? As it turns out, very–in ways that are completely unexpected.

Suddenly Emma is filled with questions about cohabiting, about giving up her freedom–not to mention about who’s going to clean the toilet. And while her best friend plans a dream wedding to her wealthy fiancé, and her older brother settles into suburban bliss, Emma must figure out what home means to her–and how on earth to get there.

If We Lived Here is the sweet, surprising story of a couple forced to weather all sorts of storms as they try to build a life together. The trials faced by Emma and Nick will be relatable to anyone who has ever taken a chance on love–with all its complications.” –Sarah Pekkanen, international best-selling author of Catching Air

If We Lived Here is a vivid depiction of both the claustrophobia and the potential of love and real estate. It’s a heartfelt exploration of what makes a home, and a funny, engaging chronicle of the growing pains of adult life.” –Jen Doll, author of Save the Date

PRETTY IN INK, Lindsey J. Palmer

Set in the fast-paced world of women’s magazines, this dishy debut novel from a former magazine editor establishes Lindsey J. PaPretty in Inklmer as a stand-out young novelist to watch.
Here’s the story line:
For years, Hers magazine has been a fixture on newsstands–relatable, reliable, and ever-so-slightly frumpy. But with sales slumping, Hers’ editor-in-chief soon finds a pink slip in her inbox. And her ruthless, blisteringly high-heeled replacement may not be finished cleaning house yet.  .  .
Leah Brenner suspects she won’t be on the payroll much longer either. A telecommuting, breast milk-pumping mom of three doesn’t mesh with her new boss Mimi’s vision of a sleeker, younger-skewing Hers. Not content with nabbing Leah’s office, Mimi’s protégée, Victoria, is itching to take over Leah’s duties too–and she’s not alone. As the summer rolls out, and staffers are asked to give up even their sexiest secrets to save the brand, everyone at Hers–the sycophantic new assistant;the photo editor who’s sleeping with her boss;the Ivy League intern with oversized aspirations–will fight to keep her career, and some shred of dignity, intact.
Smart, perceptive, and hilarious, Lindsey Palmer’s debut delivers an all too true-to-life tale of very different women faced with high-stakes choices in a rapidly changing–yet utterly familiar–world.
Reviewers are raving about PRETTY IN INK:
“A sharp, hilarious romp through a spot-on believable women’s magazine.” –Sally Koslow, former Editor-in-Chief of McCall’s

“An essential novel.  .  .engaging, sensitive, and so much fun.  .  .I wanted to hang out with the women of Hers Magazine long after I’d turned the last page.” -Diana Spechler, author of Skinny

Publishers Weekly says of Pretty in Ink, “Filled with juicy gossip and outrageous office politics…a dishy, catty book, that’s… an indulgent roll in the mud. Palmer writes this side of womanhood brilliantly.” Booklist says, “A lighthearted gambol through the ever-changing world of women’s magazine publishing, former magazine editor Palmer’s debut contains the authenticity of experience and the salacious story snippets fans of The Devil Wears Prada (2003) will appreciate… With different chapters devoted to different POVs, the politics of the magazine industry find full display in this deliciously delectable read.”

“Tantalizing.  .  .Pretty in Ink is part comic love story and part bloody valentine.” ‑‑Devan Sipher, New York Times “Vows” columnist and author of The Wedding Beat

“This entertaining debut exposes the catty, crazy and competitive inner workings of women’s magazines. A former editor herself, Palmer explores this rarefied workplace and the women struggling to rise to the top–or just hold onto their jobs. A fun, fantastic read.” –Jennifer Miller, author of The Year of the Gadfly

In her forthcoming third novel, Otherwise Engaged (Skyhorse, November 2018), Lindsey turns her attention to marriage and the wedding industrial complex. The rock-solid bond of newly engaged couple Molly and Gabe gets shaken when Gabe’s novel, a thinly veiled account of his relationship with his wild ex-girlfriend, becomes a national sensation. As fact and fiction, and past and present, start to blur, and it’s a countdown to the couple’s wedding day, Molly is forced to confront some hard truths about herself and her relationship.
