It is still a little amazing to me that you can even check out As Many Nows As I Can Get from the NYPL. So it is pretty surreal to be named among their top 10 YA of 2019. I am so moved by this one because I believe libraries are one of the most important things in a functioning democracy. I’m serious. They save lives, house ideas, and tell kids stories. Thanks, New York Public library . I’m humbled to be listed among these great authors.
My favorite local bookstore included me in their Publisher’s Weekly holiday gift guide, if you pick it up remember to message me for a bookplate.
Did you know VOYA called As Many Nows As I Can Get “A definite purchase and must read.” Sounds like a great gift for a teen on your holiday shopping list–so if you purchase a copy of nows and send me a proof of purchase (photo of your receipt or you excited and reading the book) I’ll send you a signed book plate–until 12/1 or my book plates run out!
I can’t tell you the excitement I felt the day I learned that Penguin was turning Nows into an Audiobook. This was huge for me in part because my Colorado-dwelling cousin who consulted me on some specifics in the book has trouble reading conventionally but loves audiobooks. Many people read this way and knowing that my book was going to be accessible to more readers brought tears to my eyes. Lots of them actually. So it is very cool to see the audiobook get this lovely review in AudioFile.
