Now That You’re Here

It exists! I’ve held it in my hands!

Posted on

Yesterday a package arrived from my editor. Check out what was inside.

Hardback copies of NOW THAT YOU’RE HERE!

NTYH hardback
My editor made her reaction known via sticky notes.

 

Even though it doesn’t go on sale for another month, it exists. I’ve held it in my hands. Years of work, and suddenly, there it is. It’s difficult to wrap my brain around.

And I have to say–even though I am biased–the book design is amazing. The team at Knopf did an incredible job. The photo doesn’t show it well, but the title ink is shiny and opaque. The cover has a cool, rubbery matte feeling. The colors are dazzling.

But my favorite part is the spine.

When you get your copy (*wink*), be sure to peek under the dust cover. The spine has black-on-black foil printing detail that is just so cool!

NTYH spine
What a cool surprise!

Thank you, Knopf, for taking my manuscript and transforming it into a work of art!

And thanks to my editor, Katherine, for the lovely surprise. 🙂

Kirkus Reviews NOW THAT YOU’RE HERE

Posted on Updated on

NowThatYoureHere_AmyKNichols_smI’m up to my ears in line edits, but had to take a moment to tell you NOW THAT YOU’RE HERE received its first professional review.

And it’s good!

Kirkus called it a “debut with great characters and huge nerd appeal“.

The reviewer also said “the organic sweetness of [Danny and Eevee’s] relationship is tempered by the enthusiastic geekery of the nonromantic storylines. Real mathematical and scientific theories appear, and Eevee and Warren live and breathe cherished icons of nerd culture. While the world-jumping is fantastical, the personalities and characters (fully individual, without reaching trying-too-hard levels of quirkiness) ring true.”

Here’s the link to read the review in full: Kirkus reviews NOW THAT YOU’RE HERE.
