Amy K. Nichols’ new novel While You Were Gone came out on Aug. 4.

I’m a little (okay, a lot) behind getting this up, but better late than never, right?

This afternoon at Changing Hands Phoenix, Arizona YA authors Austin Aslan and Amy K. Nichols are hosting a release party to celebrate their new novels, The Girl at the Center of the World, and While You Were Gone, respectively.

Flagstaff author Austin Aslan’s new novel The Girl at the Center of the World is the sequel to his apocalyptic debut The Islands at the Center of the World.
