Firefight Tour, a new Writing Excuses episode + Updates
Firefight was released last week in the US and UK and the tour is underway. You can see the full tour schedule here.
My next tour stop will be at Powell’s in Beaverton, Oregon on January 16th at 7:00 p.m. It looks like this isn’t a ticketed event, so I will sign any book I wrote that you bring, but it’s awesome to show support for the store by buying your books there (ahead of time, if you want to read it before the signing). If you can make it, I hope to see you there, and many more of you throughout the rest of my tour in the US.
There’s a new Writing Excuses episode, I have an Idea; What Do I Do Now? We talk about our various approaches to the next critical step: What to do once you’ve got an idea that has story-legs. Many of which center around finding the person or people most affected by the thing our idea conjures into their world.
Tor.com is continuing their series of re-read posts for Words of Radiance. In the last chapter we were left hanging with word of an assassin in the palace. This week, Alice Arneson discusses Chapter 23, where we discover what the attempt involved and what the fallout was.
Another thank you is in order; Words of Radiance was voted as the winner for Best Novel in 2014 by the r/Fantasy community on Reddit. Thank you for your continued support in this, my lifelong dream of being a professional writer. I couldn’t do it without you!
