imagesI had a great time at the Lake Oswego Library yesterday.  About fifty young readers showed up to discuss “Peak” and my other novels.  A lot of them had the new I,Q in hand and several of my other novels.  (The photo is historical photo taken on the lake…and no I didn’t take it).

When I got home our daughter Niki showed up with a couple bags of Moroccan  food, which we gobbled down like hungry camels.  This might account for me waking up this morning with a bellyache, a condition so rare for me I can count the times I’ve been afflicted with it on one hand (and I’m old).  This slowed the work down on Storm Runner, but I pushed ahead anyway, and I’m glad I did.  I got an email this afternoon from my editor telling me that she has a meeting with the art department tomorrow to go over the cover for the second book in the series.  She wanted to know if I had any ideas for it.

I had  a lot of ideas that I didn’t share with her because they were unrelated to the cover. I didn’t bellyache even though I had a bellyache.  They are designing the cover for the second book while I’m working on the final edits for the first book, which I only got back from them last week.  I haven’t even started writing the second Storm Runner book, but I do have a pretty good idea of what’s going to happen.  I was able to give her a few ideas.  I’m sure they will come up with something great.  They usually do.

Oh…one other bit of Storm Runner news.  Scholastic audio is putting out a recorded version simultaneously with the print edition.  They have the narrators narrowed down to two people and I was told that they were going to ask me which narrator I prefer.  That’s never happened before. I’m usually the last person to know who narrates my books.

    Awesome! I am so glad they are putting it on audio. Maybe they can get Jim Dale. Any chance any others will be an audiobook? Hope you are feeling better.
    Take care!
