New Video Interview at Suvudu

A while back I did a video interview over at San Diego Comic Con with Shawn Speakman. It was supposed to be a short interview, but apparently that's not something I'm capable of and they ended up breaking it into four bite-sized chunks.

Here's the first one:

The others you can find OVER HERE.

The fashionistas among you will note my stylish geekware. Remember guys, a Legend of Neil T-shirt not only establishes your geek street cred, but it impresses the hell out of the ladies.

If you've fallen behind, there are five episodes of Legend of Neil Season two out right now. And #3 is musical brilliance that's been stuck in my head for days.

You have been notified/warned.

I owe you for putting me onto the Legend of Neil a few blogs back, it's just so refreshing.

I didn't like the musical at first, but it grew on me after a second, third, fourth and... and nth time around. Will watch your interview when my internet decides to be even remotely co-operative.

Well wishes from Australia writing unit #001(codename "Rothfuss")

Interesting interview as always. I agree with your 'fairy tale' description and want to see that Venn Diagram once it's shaded and labeled somewhere, please.

the fashionistas among you have noted your geek wear and think you're the bees knees anyway (perhaps even more so)!

Ok, I have to say that I love the analogy you made between creating a movie and creating a book.

Viva la Woman-Cat!!! :o)

Legend of Neil is just a big bucket of awesome and I have you to thank for my enjoyment of the show. You turned me onto The Guild which turned me onto Legend of Neil. How would I fritter away countless hours without you?

I watched all 4, and the great thing about your interviews: you're not boring, and don't take yourself too serious.

And you are welcome for my patience, and will continue to receive it. I can wait for book 2, though it's a near thing. Good thing you recommend other great authors and awesome content (Legend of Neil) to distract me.

Thank you!

Enjoyable interview. I completely agree with your definition of a fairy-tale. Take your time with Wise Man's Fear, Pat. It will be all the better once it's done with all the time and care you've put into it.

Pat/Mr. Rothfuss/ Convention Dude-

I wanted to tell you that I loved Name of the Wind for a lot of reasons, the main one being that I'm a piss-ant freshman at college, and that whole scene with Kvothe and Hemme just...made my day. =) I mean,DAMN. I literally lol'd.

And I also really liked The Denna/Kvothe 'romance.' I like the fact that Kvothe's not a raging sack of testosterone, though he's still got aaalll of book two to , you know...;)

So yeah. I read your book...the third week of college? Made me all warm and fuzzy. I even had a few nerdy 'If Kvothe can *insert epic deed here* then I can...*insert embarrasing laundry story here*

So yeah. Much love. =) Congrats on your baby, too! =D

P.S. i totally would have e-mailed you this but... I'm a freshman. Couldn't find your e-mail, sooo...

Guess we'll just stick to 'I'm a freshman.' XD

As a new father myself, I wil give you what little advice I have....

1. Apparently babies are unfazed by sharp objects and blunt force trauma, however their weakness lies in diaper changes, temperature checks, being weighted and blood pressure.

2. Pray to what ever supreme being you worship that you don't ever have to mess with an Ostomy bag, talk about a pain in the ass.

3. With two being said, they make cartoon charcters out of the wierdest things, I mean who makes a cartoon out of a shit bag!? I mean really, do you think kids will feel any better about crap in a bag because of a cartoon character?

4. Read to him, I read Dragonlance Chronicles (since my Name of the Wind copy was being borrowed at the time) while he was in the NICU and everytime I did he calmed down and relaxed usually falling asleep, hopefully dreaming of dragons and bad-ass wizrds.

Wow, I have to say, i really do enjoy listening to you speak on anything remotely related to the craft of writing, and creating a world, to use your words, where you can turn a different corner and not find the "backstage area", you have a skill for interviewing in that no matter how long you make it i don't seem to mind, regardless of how much I groan when T see the time on the video feed, sooo... YAY! And good luck on that writing Denna Thing, I WOULD DIE trying to even start THINKING about something like that, so you are a braver man than I.
