London Booksignings and SFX Weekend

Our official activities on Thursday didn’t begin until 11 AM, so I had plenty of time to go down the street to Starbucks for our morning coffee, then I finished the last of the thirty signed/sketched copies of Hellhole and packaged the boxes for pickup, and found I had time to edit a chapter in the room.  Time for the other duties.

In England for HELLHOLE

Simon & Schuster UK and SFX Magazine have flown me and Rebecca over to England for a week of promoting Hellhole, which was just recently released.  Leaving Colorado early Monday morning (just ahead of the onset of a nasty blizzard and plunging temperatures), we flew to Washington DC, changed planes, then headed off to Heathrow, landed at 5:30 AM, and arrived at the hotel just as dawn was breaking.  Fortunately, our room was ready, so we were able to nap for a few hours to reset our schedules.

Why We Write—from Tracy Hickman

At the recent Superstars Writing Seminar in Salt Lake City, bestselling fantasy author Tracy Hickman joined us  to sit in on some of the lectures. At the end of Friday, for a Q&A session with myself, Brandon Sanderson, David Farland, Rebecca Moesta, Eric Flint, and Sherrilyn Kenyon, Tracy asked me if he could have the microphone for ten minutes because he had something to say.  I didn’t know what he had in mind, but I was sure it would be something interesting.
