I don't think I can compare to these other guys but I'm here if you need me too
I think it be kind of cool if occasionally you had a guest writer. They could write an episode, send you the script and you make the actual novel based on that script (you would have the final say whether or not it is what you are looking for, of course. ) So I guess it'd be somewhat similar to Lance's interactive novel but instead of everyone contributing at once some people would get more of a say as to what happens. Just thought I'd throw that out there and see what you think.
