A bit of fun news.
My co-author on Throwing Lead, Mary Mason, and I had so much fun doing Throwing Lead that we’re starting work on our next Writer’s Guide. After much discussion over whether to start straight in with Throwing Lead 2 or to get on with another one of our planned volumes, we decided to wait on TL2 until feedback and questions have come in for the just-released volume 1.
In the meantime, we’re going to be doing a Writer’s Guide to Cars and Driving (probably called either “Grinding Gears” or “Laying Rubber” or something similar), and we start work on it tomorrow. So, step 1 is the same as step 1 was with Throwing Lead: Ask for your questions.
What is it about cars and driving, car chases, stunt driving, etc. that you’ve always been curious about? What about cars just doesn’t make sense to you? What things have you seen in movies that strain credibility? What weird cultural things have always puzzled you about bikers, gearheads, mechanics, and getaway drivers? Let us know. Leave your questions in the comments under this post, or send them in to feedback at jdsawyer dot net.
Your questions helped make Throwing Lead happen, and helped us out when we got stuck. We’re dying to know what’s on your mind when it comes to all things automotive.
