Suddenly, there were books with my name on them.

azimuth:0.000000||elevation:0.000000||horizon:0.000000The revisions deadline for WHILE YOU WERE GONE is looming over me like a dark menace, but I had to take time out to post a very cool happening.

I got a package in the mail from my editor, the lovely Katherine Harrison at Knopf, and in the package was books. With my name on them.

My advanced reader copies of NOW THAT YOU’RE HERE had arrived!

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen other authors post pics of their ARCs and wondered what that must be like, seeing your book for the first time. Now I know: it’s a very strange feeling. Do I laugh? Cry? Run around the room screaming? Sit and stare, wondering how this ever happened? All of the above? I imagine at some point all of this will feel very normal. But for now it’s a bit Alice-down-the-rabbit-hole. I keep checking to see if the stack of ARCs is still there, to make sure this isn’t actually some surreal dream.

Yep. They’re still there.

And so is that book two deadline. Best get back to work.

About the book:

Danny and Eevee are meant to be together . . .

Just not in this universe.

Eevee Solomon has high school down to a science. Get the grades. Get the recommendations. Get into an Ivy League college, and eventually land a killer job at NASA.

Then Danny Ogden enters the equation.

Danny is a street-smart graffiti artist. He’s always managed to stay out of serious trouble, but this time he’s out of luck. One minute he’s running from the cops, and the next, he jolts awake in an unfamiliar body–his own, but different. Somehow, he’s crossed into a parallel universe. Now his friends are his enemies, his parents are long dead, and coolheaded Eevee is not the brazen girl he once kissed back home. Then again, this Eevee may be his only hope of getting home.

Eevee tells herself she’s only helping him in the name of quantum physics, but there’s something undeniably fascinating about this boy from another dimension . . . a boy who makes her question who she is, and who she might be in another place and time.

Sound like a fun read? Head over to Goodreads and add NOW THAT YOU’RE HERE to your bookshelf.

And stay tuned for more fun announcements!
