Terry Brooks and Peter V Brett Chat on Suvudu

Since this happened in the early hours of this morning (well okay, not *that* late, but I would have been buggered at work today if I had stayed awake for it) I thought I’d post it for you. 🙂

Terry has long been one of the giants of Fantasy and I shouldn’t have to even give you a refresher on who the man is, and the same can already be said of Peter; his debut in 2008, The Painted Man, secured him a legion of fans, and when The Desert Spear hit shelves earlier this year, that trend definitely continued. 🙂

Here’s a link to the chat – Betsy Mitchell, Editor-in-Chief of Del Rey Books, chaperoned the two (not that they needed it, but some would say that Fantasy authors in general need chaperones, 😉 ) and there were also fans that joined the chat and got to ask these two authors the questions weighing on their minds. :-).

I’ve saved the chat into a Word Doc so I can read it during my lunch break today. 🙂

Thanks to Suvudu for bringing this to us! 🙂

Interview Videos: Jasper Kent and Peter V Brett!

Hey Guys and Girls, saw this link on Facebook and thought I’d share it with you all. 🙂

Check out Jasper’s site here!

Also, Shawn Speakman of Suvudu (as well as being Terry Brooks’ webmaster) has posted videos taken at the New York ComicCon wherein Peter V Brett talks about how great it was to be one of ComicCon’s star attractions, a bit about the sequels following The Warded Man (or The Painted Man, the UK edition), a bit about his writing process, how it was for him to meet Terry Brooks, and plenty more! 🙂 And after you watch those videos, check out these three posts: Peat’s report on the ComicCon experience – Day One, Day Two, and Day Three. 🙂

Be Fantastic!

Spotlight: Shawn Speakman

You may be wondering why I’m spotlighting Shawn, and may even be wondering who Shawn is. There’s an easy couple of answers to that, and you’ve actually probably seen those answers yourself. 🙂

Shawn is Terry Brooks’ webmaster, the guy who designed Terry’s wonderful website, and has been Terry’s friend for longer than most people nowadays keep friends. 🙂

Shawn is also the man who redid and rejuvenated David Anthony Durham’s website,

Shawn is also the man behind Suvudu, the oft-updated and incredibly topical Random House Blog,

and Shawn is also a writer. 🙂

If it wasn’t for Shawn, I would never have had the chance to send my interview questions to Terry Brooks; I mean, where in your life have you heard of a newbie-blogger (only six-months old!) getting an interview with one of the biggest names and grandmasters of Fantasy? That, my friends, is all thanks to Shawn Speakman. 🙂

So follow this link through to Suvudu, where Shawn tells us about himself, how he discovered Shanarra, the vision he had of a book-cover, meeting Terry, becoming his webmaster, etc. It’s a great post, answering many questions I’ve wondered about myself (but I’ve never asked, because Shawn has already done me a huge favour). 🙂

Fans of Terry Brooks beware – you may just become a fan of Shawn Speakman too. 🙂

Be Fantastic!
