  1. Stuart Gibbs-
    Brief questions.
    1. You said no crossover was planned in reply to Dashiell Gibbson. However, there is a part in SS at Sea when El Diablo gives Mike and Ben T-shirts with Snakes alive (Funjungle) on it. So, what are you talking about?
    2. I have an idea for Spy School 11 or 12. I found that there are multiple scenes with Koreans in them. (SS Revolution, SS At sea). However, I ask that you visit (South) Korea and make a scene there. I assure you that this is a wonderful country.

  2. Juno Park –

    1) You are confusing an easter egg with a crossover. An easter egg is a reference hidden in a book that references another series and may (or may not) indicate that the series occur in the same universe. A crossover is actively bringing characters from one series into another. What you have encountered is an easter egg, not a crossover.

    2) I am unable to accept ideas from readers because I have already thought much farther ahead in the series. I also have ideas for SS11 (which is almost finished) and SS12, as well as SS13.

  3. Mr. Gibbs-
    When you say you are almost done with SS 11, what do you mean by that? I have read other comments where you say you usually do around ten different drafts for your books, so how many drafts have you done for SS 11, and have you started drafting SS 12 or 13 yet?

  4. Ruben G –

    I never start writing one SS book until I am finished with the previous one, so I have not begin work on SS12 yet (and certainly not on SS13). I have done many drafts of SS11 but probably still have a few more to go. How many depends on the editing process and how close to done my editor thinks it is.

  5. Mr. Gibbs,
    First off, I’m a big fan of SS. I’ve been tuned in for 7 years now, and it’s been a nice constant to look forward to come September. However, I must be candid and say I was disappointed with the large changes that SS Project X brought (I don’t like change, but I understand it’s necessary). What was the rationale behind SPOILERS REMOVED?

    Again, much respect

  6. J –

    I am sorry that you didn’t appreciate the changes but I felt that keeping everything exactly the same in book after book would get repetitive.

  7. 007 –

    I am not going to post the summary for SS11 (or the tile or cover) for a few more months.

  8. Hi Mr.Gibbs!

    In the first few books of SS the audience was given SPYDER as the big bad in which the conclusion for that was in SSBI. Are there any plans for a new villain in the future, we’ve mainly been given minor characters, in my opinion, I don’t really consider Murray Hill as an actual “big bad” and the Croatoan hasn’t been mentioned since SSR

  9. Hello Mr. Gibbs! My name is Mo Jo. I have a book blog,
    I interview people, write book reviews, and things like that. I just read the most recent book in the Spy School series, which I have kept up with since the publication of Ski School. I was wondering if I could interview you on it! I have done a few interviews, with Margret Haddix, Annie Sullivan, and Katie Leigh. I would like to add your name to that list! Thanks!

  10. Mo Jo –

    This blog looks really good. But unfortunately at this moment, I don’t have the time for any interviews. If you would like to reach out to me in the future, the email is the best place to coordinate with me.

  11. Dear Mr. Gibbs
    I am in middle school and want to write a novel. A teacher suggested I write to all my favorite authors (That’s you) and see what writing techniques they use. I was wondering if you could help me answer some writing questions. I want to know how to develop the characters and plot. I also struggle with lengthening my stories. I want to know how to take a short story and stretch it into a full novel. Thank you.

  12. Quinn –

    Developing characters and plot takes. lot of brainstorming and thought for week, months or years before you start writing. I think most people just rush into writing without thinking that stuff through.

    And I would never expand a short story into a full novel. If your idea only turns out to be a few pages long, then it was a short story idea, not a novel idea. Expanding it will involved padding it out, which is not fun to read.

  13. Imma just go in here and say Zoe should have a female love interest in the next book. Don’t even go and say she’s a lesbian w/ comphet, as while I personally headcanon that lmao but you’ve said that characters sexuality’s aren’t that important, which is why I am asking, would it be THAT hard to make Zoe date a girl? Like just switch the gender of her next love interest lol. I don’t really know why I’m saying this but I just thought it would be really cool 🙂 totally don’t take bad or anything I’m just asking 😀

  14. Hi Mr.Gibbs! I wanted to ask you a few questions. Who is taller, Erica or Ben? How does everyone know that Erica and Ben are together? Or did that happen in a gap in between the books? Thanks a lot! I love your books!!

  15. blah –

    Erica and Ben are about the same height.

    Erica and Ben’s close friends know they are together because it is very hard to keep secrets in a school full of spies. That happened in a gap between the books.

  16. To Mr Gibbs,
    I am a very big fan of the series and been reading since 4th grade. Now I’m a 9th grader. I’m curious on how many more books do you think the Spy School Series will be? I think about this every now and then and figured I would ask. Thanks for making my childhood reading espierebbe great.

  17. Landon –

    I do not know how many books will be in the series. Thanks for sticking with it for so many years!

  18. blah –

    I do not know Ben and Erica’s exact heights.

    Please see my blog post about Questions I Can’t Answer.

  19. Since spy school 11 now comes out on October 3:
    We started waiting with 393 days.
    Waited 24 days in September (since September 6th), 31 days in October, 30 days in November, 31 days in December, and so far 23 days in January. That means there is only 254 days left until Spy School 11 comes out! I think. I did that math quickly.
    I hope everyone enjoys those 254 days until Spy School 11.

  20. Also, does anyone know how to change your picture icon thingy above your name? It’s not very important but was just wondering.

  21. Hi Mrs Gibbs, SS has been my fav series since I discovered it about 3 months ago , just wanted to ask if ur thinking of making the entire SS series into a graphic novel series, by the way your brainstorming ideas is A+ quality

  22. Mia –

    The plan is to turn every SS book into a graphic novel — but that will take a long time.
