It's happening! The secret underground factory is flinging open the doors and letting the sunshine in! The powerful product we've been working night and day on?
You know I'm dedicated to boys reading I believe that THE biggest issue with why boys don't read is CONTENT. Hizbot.com will be a boys-only online bookstore, with resources for parents and lists of books that boys WANT to read. 

We got our splash page up over the weekend and everything is under construction. Our plan is a full launch with working bookstore on June 1. 

In the meantime, go to hizbot.com and sign in so we can keep you up to date as our launch approaches. We'll also send you "READ LIKE A HERO: The boys' guide to turning a book into an adventure." HERO is our own boys' easy-reading guide that clearly describes to boys the elements of a story, offers 10 easy things they can do to improve their reading and has a book report template they can "steal" and use. 

We'll see you at hizbot.com

Tomorrow, look for my report on my trip to the International Reading Association's conference in Minneapolis. It's been a blast!
