    This went live today.

    Some of the questions:
    • If you had to pick one, what would be your favourite book/author?
    • Which fantasy authors have really stood out for you in recent times? What do you think gives them that edge over others?
    • When you approach planning in your own writing, do you fly by the seat of your pants or set everything out in detail?
    • How important do you think it is to research a project before writing?
    • Seeing as how you started out going down the self-publishing route (and had great success), what advice would you give to someone who’s thinking of taking that route now?
    • Do you find any particular types of scene more difficult to write than others? Some authors struggle with fight scenes while others fly through them, what about you?
    • What do you think about writer’s block? Do you believe it exists or is it a signal of a lack of research/planning?
    • Have there been any times when you just haven’t felt like writing? How do you overcome those feelings to get something down on the page?
    • Could you tell us a little about The Riyria Revelations?
    • Where did the idea/inspiration for Royce and Hadrian’s characters come from?
    • Are you able to say what you’re working on at the moment?
