    This week's Writing Excuses podcast episode with Mary Robinette Kowal, Dan Wells, Howard Tayler, and me talks about the villain problem. By that we mean when the hero is less active than the villain and spends most of the book reacting to the cool things the villain does. We discuss what a writer can do about this issue.

    There have been a number of interviews posted recently. First off, Suvudu put up a video where Christopher Paolini and I interviewed each other this past weekend at Comic-Con International in San Diego. (With a cameo by Robin Hobb.)


    This is a great interview that gives you a good idea of Brandon the person rather than Brandon the writer.

    The Fictorian Era has a short interview where I talk mostly about the modern ebook market. A Feast of Fantasy has another interview with me here, mostly about THE ALLOY OF LAW. Invisible Vanguard has an interview where I discuss a few aspects of the writing process, such as the desire for each book to be better than the last. Dark Matter has a 45-minute audio interview with me that I did with them when I was in Australia. The printed version is on page 49 of issue 9, which you can download here.
