Nothing Special

I just delivered Stupid Fast’s sequel, Nothing Special, to the publisher. I’m pretty excited about it.  Felton becomes an absolute monster on the field, a mega-player.  He loses his balance, though, and loses Gus, Aleah, and Andrew, his poor little brother.  To be the kind of dude he really wants to be, he will have to learn, go where he doesn’t want to go, and rebuild what’s been broken (with a lot of help).  Oh yeah… He’ll have to make it to Florida, twice.

    This is great news. I can’t wait to see what Felton gets up to next.

    Hey Geoff, loved Stupid Fast! I’m incredibly impressed that you finished the sequel so quickly, what is your editing process like? I finished writing a book for YA boys in April and the editing is making me go crazy. I’ve been reading other books for YA boys as inspiration, can you suggest any others that inspired you?

      Hey Mark, Thanks! I had a pretty tough deadline on Nothing Special, so I really spent the summer just generating my ass off. I then had an editor at Sourcebooks who commented and that helped (as I’d gone totally blind — you know when you stare at something too much). After that I took about two weeks a piece on a couple of big rewrites and then… I guess there it is. I think the thing turned out. I really love John Green. Loved Looking for Alaska. Also been reading John Coy lately. Good stuff!
