In this episode of Rocket Talk, Justin interviews fantasy author Brian Staveley about what it was like to have one of the most heralded debuts of 2014 and how he’s adjusting to life in the community. The conversation covers some writing techniques, discussions about his first two books—The Emperor’s Blades and The Providence of Fire—and whether or not authors can have “the juice.”
After teaching literature, philosophy, history, and religion for more than a decide, Brian Staveley began writing epic fantasy. His debut novel, The Emperor’s Blades, and its follow-up, The Providence of Fire, are both available from Tor and Tor UK. He can be found on Twitter at @brianstaveley and also on his blog.
