Well, because I'm such a masochist, I've begun writing a novel. The darn thing is turning into a series before the first book is even 1/2 finished. I'll post an excerpt soon and as soon as I have a better idea on the release date, I'll make it available for pre-order.
Let's put it this way, if you liked the idea behind the Marketplace series, you're probably going to like this book (series, whatever the heck it turns out to be).
Keep an eye open for the excerpt here and on my page on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/pdp/profile/A37WT2PXTZET1S/ref=cm_arms_am_pdpe
