When you want to be a writer, there are some things you dream about: Seeing your book on the shelves of a bookstore, hearing from readers who’ve loved your work… And getting a review in the New York Times. Yes, there are other places that review books, but for me, the Times has always been the gold standard. (Maybe because I’ve been reading this book review every weekend for a very long time.)
It turns out, the only thing better than getting a review in the Times… is getting a GREAT review in the Times. If you’d like to read it yourself, just click here.
Or, I could give you some nice excerpts. Like: “…a delightful and brilliantly constructed middle-grade thriller.” Or: “In a novel with such a highly imagined plot, a protagonist this layered is a rare treat.” Or even: “At its heart, “Space Case” is about exploration for the sake of exploration, offering up the same wonder as a good long look at the night sky.”
I cannot possibly describe for you all how awesome this is. It’s simply amazing.
Meanwhile, this has also coincided with my Six Minute interview popping up on LitPick today. Click here for it.
Have a happy holiday, everyone! See you in the new year!
