We’re Number 1! Hidden Human Computers #1 at Amazon

number-one-new-release

While everyone in North American seemed to be watching (and posting about) the Golden Globes, I got a message from my co-author Duchess Harris.  “Check out the reviews on Amazon!”

Our book Hidden Human Computers was Amazon’s #1 New Release in Teen Air and Space Science Books. Woot! You better believe that Duchess and I did a happy dance!

For those of you who aren’t family with the book, it is about the African American women who helped send the US into space. Duchess and I wrote this book because her grandmother was one of the original black women computers hired by NASA. We were lucky to have such amazing women who had a great story to tell.

So far we have two reviews and they are both fantastic.  Of course, that doesn’t mean that negative reviews won’t come our way but tonight we are dancing and singing.

  1. Congrats! Same history, but any official tie-in to the new movie “Hidden Figures”?

    • No official tie, but the timing sure was ideal. Since our book is education vs trade and written for a tween/teen audience vs an adult audience, we tell a broader, more complete history. We give a lot of information on how these women were at the intersection of black rights and women’s rights and what they had to deal with because of this. It was fascinating to research.
