Marginal Gear School news

Gear School, mark II, makes its incremental way from my head and into reality. Last week, I sent Dave Land a fistful of ideas I'd like to pursue in this volume -- along with a stated preference for which of the choices I liked. He asked for more detail and so, on Monday, I sent along a one-page outline. Today he professed undying love for the idea and promptly asked for its hand in marriage. Maybe not, but he liked it well enough to say, "go for it."

But before I go for it, I want the feedback of Nuria and the rest of Estudio Fenix, so I sent them the idea just a bit ago.

I can't really say too much about the idea I have cooking, but I think I can safely say that this will be a quieter story. I want to try out this thing called "character development" that I keep hearing the kids talk about. I'll let you know how that works out.

Jason, thanks so much for writing in! And, I assume for reading my book. I appreciate it. I have to admit that I'm not familiar with your work, but it's going on my to-read list.
