Upcoming interviews

When I started a new internship in March which saw my workload increase to six days a week, it was obvious that I would have to cut back on a few things. Blog-wise, that meant that I no longer had time to work on interviews. Which is why the C. S. Friedman Q&A was the last one I did in 2009.

Sadly, I was forced to turn down many offers I would otherwise have been glad to accept. And I feel that the absence of interviews in the last couple of months took something away from the Hotlist.

Now that things have settled down a bit, with the help of a few other bloggers I'll be interviewing a number of authors before the year is out. So you can expect Q&As with Robin Hobb, author of The Dragon Keeper (Canada, USA, Europe), Steven Erikson, author of Dust of Dreams (Canada, USA, Europe) and the 10th anniversary edition of Gardens of the Moon (Canada, USA, Europe), Joe Abercrombie, author of Best Served Cold (Canada, USA, Europe), Brandon Sanderson, author of The Gathering Storm (Canada, USA, Europe),and Mark Charan Newton, author of Nights of Villjamur (Canada, USA, Europe), in the near future.

I've extended the invitation to writers such as R. Scott Bakker, Scott Lynch, and a few others as well, but I've yet to receive word from them. . .

No invitation to Goodkind then, huh Pat? ;)

Thank you, Pat! The interviews are the best part of an already-excellent site.

Hope you can get those Bakker and Lynch reviews, too.
