Most definitely, nothing better than seeing a fellow traceur make a profit from what he loves doing.... And it's a great story :D

Of course!  This is without a doubt, one of the greatest stories I've read in a while, probably because it relates to something that's real (non fantasy lol) and something I actually care about.

I'd buy it!!!

P.S. I know whatcha mean. It's fun watching videos of the original traceurs train together with the basic movements that had not yet evolved into what parkour is today.

Hey Gabe,

Rise is a great story I read through those chapters in about 2 hours.  I feel you have captured the philosophy of parkour and how mainstream has and probably will continue to turn it.  Owen is the man.

I was actually thinking after I finished reading the current chapters that I would love to have it as an actual book. I love reading it. I didn't notice I had finished the last chapter that was posted until I went to find the next. I almost cried. I can't wait until the next one!

I'd for sure buy this! I read all of the chapters so far without a break and loved it! The only thing I don't like is that I have to wait for the next chapter!  >:(

Gabe man, i would buy i case then give um away to spraed awareness of our art, it really is a very good representation of it.  And such a great plot too so far.

I'd read it!!!

Word from the wise, my dad published his first book a short time ago, and found that self-publishing was the better way to go.

Okay.
1.) "GREAT STUFF!" I always stalk the "Creative Writing" area, so I can read the next chapter before the Freerunner hits my inbox with it.
2.) Chapter 11 was by far the most easily-imagined, while reading. I could see how everything would look if it were a movie/video, and I think that's awesome. I hope you keep up the good work, Gabe, and of course, continue to increase your skills as a writer.
