Okay I’m cheating this week. Instead of talking at you, I’m going to share with you. I had the opportunity to actually sit down and enjoy a whole hour of uninterrupted time which meant I got to actually watch this entire video. This is the first episode of Geek and Sundry’s Story Board that aired Tuesday, 8/7/12. They got Jim Butcher (rockin’ author of the Dresden Files), Diana Rowland (on my to-read list for White Trash Zombie), Emma Bull (one of the first to be identified as an Urban Fantasy author) and Patrick Rothfuss (major master of the beard here!) all chatting about Urban Fantasy-what makes a story Urban Fantasy and how UF authors create their worlds and characters.
Whether you’re an established writer or new to the game, I hope you enjoy this as much as I did!
