Books Inc. Campbell proudly welcomes Evie Blum to the shop for a celebration of her book Ship It!

Evie will be reading from this incredible new romance, answering audience questions, and signing books! 

Sexy might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you hear "high tech," but the chemistry between Sarah and Nathan will make you think again.

Still healing from the loss of her father and dealing with the aftermath of a rocky relationship, Sarah is more than ready to jump into her new career in a Silicon Valley startup. Heading out to celebrate the end of the pandemic and her new job with friends seemed like a good idea last night. But as she wakes the morning after, staring into the face of impulsivity itself-a sexy guy clutching his pillow the way he clutched her the night before-she takes the easy way out and slips silently into the San Jose morning, determined to put him, and any other distractions, behind her.

After years of working towards his PhD in computer science, Nathan's ready for a change and jumps at the chance to join his best friend's tech startup. It's all-consuming and cut-throat at times, but he's ready for anything. Anything, that is, except discovering Sarah, the charming woman he spent one unforgettable night with, works at the company that just promoted him to the C-suite.

Despite their best efforts to keep their relationship professional, things heat up. But secrets come out-including Nathan's entanglement with his ex-and Sarah and Nathan must ask themselves whether their particular brand of startup can succeed in such uncertain conditions. Will the connection they're building go to market, or like most startups, will the obstacles along the way cause them to fail?


Evie Blum grew up on the beautiful Gulf Coast, and she has been an avid reader her entire life. After finishing her bachelor’s degree (Go Gators!), she decided to see more of the world, and moved to Israel, where she lived for almost a decade. She earned her master’s degree in political science, worked in academia and social change, and ate an inordinate amount of hummus. Since moving to the San Francisco Bay Area a decade ago, she has worked at a number of hardware and software startups in all sorts of roles, ranging from sales operations and business development on into product development and herding (technical) cool cats. The pandemic gave her plenty of time–and reason–to want to escape reality and she did so partly by diving into romance novels. Figuring that the world can be a pretty rough place sometimes, she set out to add some positive energy to it by writing Ship It, a fun, realistic love story set in a Silicon Valley high-tech startup.  Ship It is her first fictional work, and she hope you enjoy reading it as much as she enjoyed writing it!​

One of Books Inc.’s favorite aspects of being booksellers is getting the chance to welcome and host hundreds of authors a year, from house-hold names to local, debut authors and we are so excited to begin reintroducing the Bay Area with “The Experience You Can’t Download” in our stores with traditional author talks and booksignings. In addition to meet-and-greet author events and standard author talks, we are also continuting virtual author events.

Sales equate success, and as with in-store events, booksales made from an independent bookstore benefit the author, publisher, and lead to future event bookings. Please help us keep the Bay Area the wonderful literary hub that it is by supporting your local Books Inc.
