Several eager customers have been asking, “Where are the InSight Words I ordered?”
Both the InSight Words and the Matrix Study Sheets are in production. When I announced them in August, I anticipated that they’d be in production September 15th. Since then, I’ve had delays I didn’t anticipate: problems with the color and design of the book cover; issues with the color and orientation of the instruction cards; a family wedding on my end, and a large order in line before me on the production end.
Besides designing the cards and the book and getting them into production, I also have to consider packaging, shipping, and handling. Once I have the products in my hands, I will have a big job processing and shipping orders all over the world. Now I’m gearing up for the Everyone Reading Illinois conference in Chicagoland next week, and I’m not even sure I’ll have the prototypes by then. This is my work and I do love it, but I do it alone, and as fast as I am able, and it doesn’t always happen the way I think it’s going to.
I deeply appreciate how much my colleagues and community look forward to receiving the products I’ve developed. I also deeply appreciate your patience with a self-employed, single mom in grad school. Both of these resources are enormously generative for study, and I’m proud of them. I can’t wait to get them out to you.
Thanks for investing in LEX.
