Secondary Reading Council of Florida. I,Q2. 2

translogoI spoke at the Secondary Reading Council of Florida today in Melbourne, Florida. It was a great crowd and a lot of fun to see, and hang out with, my old friends Tonimae, Claudia, Elaine, Cathy, and a couple hundred other reading teachers. It was held on the beach at the Crowne Plaza in Melbourne.

Before my luncheon talk I did a Q&A with an enthusiastic group with a lot of interesrinf questions about books and writing. I love doing Q&A because I never know where it’s going to go.

In between all of this I worked on the final IQ2 edits. Got back to the hotel 41iE3xR2vWL._SL500_AA300_from the Clearlake Middle School yesterday evening. Worked for a few hours, went to sleep, then woke up about 11PM and worked until 4AM, then went back to sleep. I mention this here not to whine, but to give everyone an idea of what writers (all writers) have to do to get their books done. I actually like this part of the writing process. IQ2 has shaped up nicely.  I like what the editor has done to make it better. Finished this evening and sent it back to the editor.  I like what I’ve done to make it better. It’s exciting to know it will be out in a few weeks and in your hands.

    I’m amazed at how fast it will be in the stores from the time you send your final changes to the editor. Wow! And…very exciting.

    It’s actually unheard of. 12 to 18 months is the norm, but readers have been waiting a long time for the second I,Q.
