I love hearing from readers. I really do. You can even tell me exactly what's wrong with my story or why you don't like it, just so long as you stay respectful. That hasn't been a problem, though. Everyone who's taken time to write has been, for the most part, very nice to me about my stories.

One thing that I do want to comment about, though: Some of the suggestions I've gotten about which direction Band Geek Diary should go are just bizarre. Let me explain. The story is about a first romance between two freshmen in High School, two kids who are trying to work out what love and sex is all about for them. I threw in one 'kinky' twist - the girlfriend's mother is teaching the boyfriend how to be a good lover for her daughter. Now I have readers suggesting various ways to turn this into an orgy involving all the female members of the marching band, get a few of them pregnant and then sit back and watch all the girls go lesbian.

It ain't gonna happen that way, folks. It's my story and I know which way it's going and where I want it to end up, so NO pregnancies and NO orgies.

The Band Parents Universe is an open universe, and you're all welcome to put your own stories into it, with whatever action you want between band parents and high school band members. If you want an orgy in the back of the bus on the way home from a marching band competition, or if you want a tuba player to get one or more of the moms pregnant, or if you want all the flute players to be lesbians, more power to you. I'm not going to write any of that for you. You'll have to write it yourself.
