New Fiction: Time Between Us

YA novel design

One of the perks of being a book designer is that you get to read some truly amazing stories. This new book from Hyperion Books is no exception! It’s called Time Between Us by Tamara Ireland Stone and it’s now available in bookstores and on-line.

The book takes place waaaaay back in 1995. I enjoyed hearing words like “Green Day” and “discmans” that I haven’t heard in quite awhile. The book is a romantic fantasy about Anna and Bennett. Anna lives in 1995 Chicago and Bennett lives in 2012 San Francisco. They weren’t ever suppose to meet, but Bennett has this very cool ability to time travel! A small happenstance one morning places them in the same moment in time and a relationship begins, but how will it work? Ha—you’ll have to read to find out!

I was also happy with my interior design of this book too. I used curved lines to visually reference movement and time travel. There’s a lovely romantic elegance to them as well.

I’m always interested in hearing about a book design opportunity. I work with all sorts of people looking to publish books: large publishers, not-for-profit organizations, and self-publishing authors. If you have a manuscript you’d like designed into a book, please send me an email. I’d love to hear about your story!
