True to my writing ritual, on the day our proofs arrived, I sat down with a piping mug of tea in the same spot on the couch where I did a good 90% of my drafting. This time, instead of staring at a blank screen and a flashing cursor bar, I had the surreal and wonderful experience of reading this amazing book that has been over two years in the making! Earlier that day, Jen texted me to say that she already had her set. I was still waiting (pretty impatiently) for mine to arrive. The very next thing she wrote was, "it's beautiful." I couldn't agree more.
Jen and I have now been through all 264 pages of proofs with a fine-tooth comb, have made our final edits, and have shipped the book back to Stenhouse to go to print! We really, sincerely hope you like it. The book will be available on June 25th, and we will be in Philly for the annual ISTE conference a couple of days later at the Stenhouse booth, and at two sessions on professional development. In the meantime, we are thrilled to announce that Stenhouse is now taking pre-orders for Power Up!
