The novel, which will be released in August, centers on a woman named Anna Alcott who longs to start a family. However, amid her journey to pregnancy, she becomes convinced that someone is trying to stop her baby dream from coming true.

While Kim—who shares four kids with ex Kanye West—has primarily focused on her reality TV career over the years, she does have a number of acting credits, including appearances on series CSI: NY, Drop Dead Diva and Beyond the Break.


Most recently, the 42-year-old lent her voice to the 2021 animated film PAW Patrol: The Movie.

Kim is even set to reprise her role as Delores in the film's upcoming sequel Paw Patrol: The Mighty Movie. In fact, Kim will be joined by kids her eldest kids North West, 9, and Saint West, 7, in the movie as they make their acting debut.

"Who's ready for another PAWsome adventure on the big screen?" Paramount Pictures wrote on Instagram Jan. 25. "We're excited to announce the superstar cast of PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie, releasing globally in theatres on October 13th!"

(The star-studded cast also includes Kristen Bell, Taraji P. Henson and Serena Williams.)


A month before the sequel announcement, Kim—who is also mom to Chicago West, 5, and Psalm West, 3—gushed over North's artistic talents.

"The other day, we're just in the car and she puts on these beats, with no words or lyrics," Kim told Angie Martinez on the Dec. 26 episode of her IRL podcast. "And she just sits in the car...She could, for hours, just rap over the beats. So, I press record on my phone so that one day she'll hear it and it'll be so cute."

"That's our fun times, just driving around," she added. "And she loves to blast music and just freestyle."
