New interview up, this one on the computer gaming blog Grinding to Valhalla. Some of it is the same old same old (though I never cut and paste answers, so they’re always a little different, depending on my mood and level of introspection at the time of writing), but there are also some interesting questions about the writing process and gaming that are worth reading, if you’re into that sort of things.
In other news, you may have noticed some changes to the site, particularly on the News, Creations, and Excisions pages. I have just leveled up in my web-coding skills, and am making an effort to bring these pages more up to date. It’s an ongoing process, of course, but you can expect more changes in a steady trickle as I add fan art, foreign edition covers, downloadable versions of all the wards, etc.
Frequently, readers e-mail me telling me that they gave up sleep to finish the book, or they were so engrossed they missed their stop on the bus/train, or snuck into the bathroom at work to read. All those sacrifices are incredibly gratifying, but this recent Amazon reviewer takes the cake.
Dude, I appreciate the compliment, but the book ain’t that good.
Also, good Warded Man reviews on Buzzy Multimedia, SFF Chronicles, the All Consuming blog and Edward Willett‘s site, an okay review on from a guy who hated the UK cover (madness) on his blog Smote, and the Disillusioned Librarian gives a solid thumbs-up after a brief digression on Swine Flu.
And a bit more on the “cellphone writer” thing, which seems to be dying down in favor of a new flavor of the week. This one has a giant thumb, and this one is mostly about my thoughts on the Kindle.
