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.

A new video interview.
Here's a new video interview for those of you who are into that sort of thing.

Click here for the goods.

I did this one when I was over in London. I haven't watched it, because watching myself on video makes me squirrely. But I probably say some interesting things. I guess. There's probably cussings too.

Huh. I just went over and read the description of the video. Apparently I'm "erudite." Go me.

Share and enjoy,

The settling dust....

Well, the fundraiser is over, and most of my weekend has been spent dealing with the fallout.

I'll post up a more detailed blog about the aftermath in a couple of days. I'll talk details, show some pictures, give the final totals, and discuss the plans for the future.

But for now, my priority is sending out the books to everyone who won prizes. That means I'm too busy packaging things up with Sarah to write up a new blog right now. And no, that's not a euphemism.



(Click to embiggen)

Check out all the swag, and this isn't even including Subterranean Press's books.

The more observant of you might note that my book is glowing with some sort of holy light. That's right folks, not only is it a cracking good read, but The Name of the Wind will actually help you cut energy costs by illuminating your house. Plus, basking naked in its warm glow will help your body generate much-needed vitamin D.

This is why they don't let me write ad copy.

In other news, if you're looking for a way to pass the time, I did an online author panel thinger with a few other folks over at bookgeeks, talking about the classic science/magic issue.

So if you're interested in what we had to say, or if you're just looking to kill time at work, feel free to wander over there and check it out.

Later all,

pat

New Podcast - Writing Excuses.

When I was out at worldcon this year, I got to meet up with Brandon Sanderson.

This was pretty cool for me, because I've really enjoyed his books so far. Most notably the Mistborn series. Though Elantris was really good as well.

I've recommended his books on the blog before, so I won't go all gushy again. But I have to say, his stuff is really good. Irritatingly good. Plus he writes really fast, which is nice as a reader because he has more books out. But irritating as a writer, because it makes people like me look bad.

Anyway, he does a writing podcast with a few co-conspirators, and they asked me if I wanted to be their guest for an episode and talk about exposition and stuff.

So I did.

Here's the link, if you're interested.

New Interview! See Pat's Magnificent Beard in Living Colour!


Captain Joe discovered this youtube video just a while ago. It's a video interview I did with my UK publishers back in January. I suspect that they released this video to help promote the release of the UK paperback, which came out over there in June.

Surprisingly, watching myself here doesn't make me cringe hardly at all. I'm halfway articulate here, so I'm guessing that I managed to have a good strong cup of coffee before the interview started.



Share and enjoy,

Questions from fourth graders.

Recently, a fourth grade class wrote me a bunch of letters, asking me questions.

Now I've done a lot of interviews to date. But a lot of these questions were refreshingly new. Also they were easy to answer, which is always a treat. "What is your favorite color?" is way easier to deal with than, "What do you feel about the current state of the fantasy genre?"

So if you're curious, here they are.


How many books have you written?

I only have one book that you can buy in the store right now. But I have two other novels that are mostly written, and I'm working on fixing them up right now.

I also have a picture book that I've written. Right now I'm working with an artist who is drawing the pictures for it.


Is it hard to be an author?

Sometimes. It's fun having a book published. That's the easy part. People can buy it and read it. People ask you questions about it. That's nice.

But there's a lot of work that comes before your book gets into bookstores. I spent years working on my book before it was ready to get printed. My friends would call and ask I wanted to go to the movies, or play poker, or get dinner. I'd have to say, "No, I'm working on my book."

A lot of times they wouldn't want to take no for an answer. They'd say, "You can work on your book later." But if I kept putting it off, it never would have gotten done. It's a job, just like anything else. And that means that a lot of times I had to miss fun things to get my work done. That's when being an author is hard.


Where do you get your ideas?

Sometimes I get them from things I learned in school. I spent a lot of time in college and I learned a lot of cool things there. Mostly though, I just make things up in my head.

What is your favorite...

...food?

I really like sushi. But Mexican food is a close second place.

...book?


The Last Unicorn by Peter S. Beagle.

...genre?

Fantasy.

...author?

Neil Gaiman.


Are you married?

Nope. But I have a girlfriend. Her name is Sarah.

Do you have a middle name?

Yup. It's James.

Do you have pets?

Nope. I used to have a dog when I was growing up though. He was a big shaggy yellow dog named Pup. I also had dwarf hamster when I was in college. His name was Crazy.


Will there be a movie of your book?

Maybe. Right now we're talking to movie people and trying to get them interested. It takes a lot of different people with a lot of different skills to make a movie. You need a director, screenwriters, actors, producers. Right now we're trying to put together a team of people who would like to make the movie, but it's pretty complicated.

How do I become an author and get a book published?

The best way to get started is to practice writing. Write some stories or start a book. If it isn't very good at first, don't get discouraged. Nobody is that good when they just start out.

It's like when you're learning to ride a bike or Rollerblade. Everybody falls down when they're just starting out. It's embarrassing, and it hurts, but it's the only way to learn. That's how you get better with writing, too. You keep working on it and get a lot of practice.

How old were you when you wrote your first book?

I was about 15 when I started working on my first book back in high school. It had some good bits in it, but I never finished it. I made a bunch of mistakes writing it.

But it was really helpful to me in the long run. Since I made those mistakes in that first book, I knew how to avoid them in my second book.

What is your favorite TV show?

Buffy the Vampire Slayer. My second favorite is Firefly.



That's all for now, folks.

Interview - Dead Robots Society

As most of you know, when I do interviews, they're normally texty. That's what I do.

That said, I'm certainly not afraid of the sound of my own voice. Anyone who has caught me at a reading, seen me on panels at a convention, or had me as a teacher knows that I'm a talker.

So when the folks over a Dead Robots Society asked if they could do a podcast-type interview. I agreed. That said, I honestly have no idea how it turned out. We had the interview at about 2:00 in the afternoon, so I'd only been awake for maybe half an hour. That and a lack of coffee beforehand means that I didn't really feel like I was bringing my A game with me. My wit, while servicable, was probably not scintilating.

But since it's gone up, a few people have contacted me and said they liked it. More than that I can't say. I haven't listened to it, as the sound of my own voice played back to be makes me cringe.

Anyway, if you're interested, here's the link.

Later all,

Interviews, etc

I did an interview a couple weeks ago over here, but I forgot to link to it until just now.

Also, for those of you who haven't seen it already, Tarol Hunt over at Goblins did an awesome comic about the book. (It's the second comic on the page, you'll have to scroll down a bit.)

And lastly, this week I managed to hit the top 10 on the New York Times:

That's all for now. I'll start announcing the winners of the photo contest later this week, so stay tuned....

Interviewing Felicia


Over the last year, I've given a lot of interviews. I haven't counted, but I'm guessing there have been somewhere between thirty and forty.

Generally speaking, I enjoy them. I have a strong oracular element in my personality, which means that when people ask me questions, I feel moved, compelled even, to answer them.

But that's only half the story. I'm also a big asker of questions. I have a vast curiosity about all manner of things.

Combine this with my profound geekery, and you can understand why, when I got the opportunity to interview the fabulous and talented Felicia Day, I jumped at the chance.

Behold the result....

------------







So tell us a little bit about yourself....

I'm a professional actor (meaning I pay the bills solely with acting work, cross fingers) and I've lived in Los Angeles for almost 8 years now. I moved here after going to the University of Texas at Austin and getting Mathematics and Violin degrees. Natural progression to acting, don't you think?

I consider myself a "Jennifer of all trades" meaning I do a LOT of things PRETTY well. It's not a good long-term plan, but it's my personality.


Okay, I'll take the bait. If you started as a mathematician and violinist, what prompted you to make the transition into acting?

I got a bad tendentious in my left pinky during college which caused me a lot of pain when I played. I had to get cortisone shots in the joint to keep playing. (It actually hurts when I play too much Guitar Hero now, LOL). That, combined with the narrow reality of a professional classical musician's career choices, made me decide to focus on the other thing that brought me joy after college: Acting!

I also feel obliged to mention for all my fellow geeks out there, that one of your acting gigs was in Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Felicia here played Vi in season seven.

So what have you been up to lately?

Recently my focus has been on creating web content. I'm the creator of the web series called "The Guild," which is about a group of online gamers.


It's awesome on toast, and I'm not the only one who thinks so, as it recently won a bunch of fabulous awards, too. How did you get involved in working on that?


I created the show as a half-hour television pilot after I shook a two year addiction to World of Warcraft. People read the script, thought it was funny, but thought it was too "niche" for TV because it's about a group of online gamers. My friend and producing partner Kim Evey had just had fabulous success with her own YouTube videos, so after reading my script, she suggested we do it for the internet. We shot the first two episodes with our producer, Jane Selle Morgan, on our own dime, and after that we've been wholly supported by viewer donations through Paypal! It's pretty cool. Like PBS for online web series.


Hold on. You actually quit WOW? You don't play at all anymore?


Well, up until a month or so I did. I actually re-upped my account to see if I could play a normal amount of time (and to do some "research" for the show, haha). I had to quit cold turkey in the beginning though, it was consuming my life. I would move any WOW related tasks to the front of the queue, over career and family even. It got bad. Thankfully, my experience playing now is much more casual. I've only logged on a few times in a the whole month and it was easy to log off again after a few hours, keeping it short and sweet and playing with friends. Cross fingers I can sustain that!


In addition to playing the female lead in The Guild (Codex) you also write the script. Is this your first experience with screenwriting? Is it something that you're interested in pursuing more of in the future?

I have 4 or 5 scripts written... halfway. The Guild was the first one I actually finished and rewrote and polished. It took an amazing amount of sheer will to get it on the page because I haven't been writing since I was a kid like most accomplished writers. I absolutely admire writers more because of the whole process. I can't believe YOU got through so many HUNDRED pages with your book! Phenomenal!!


Well... I didn't write the whole book straight through, you know. I stopped around page 450 to get a sandwich and use the bathroom.

How do you go about your own writing?

The key for me was letting myself write badly at first in order to have something to rewrite and make better later on. I constantly have to beat down a perfectionist voice in my head. It holds me back in a lot of areas. Thankfully, the success (and fun) of writing the Guild has encouraged me to start writing other things and pursuing writing more seriously. I have several projects in the works now for TV and film. Getting them done is my main goal this summer!


Ooooh. I'm all tantalized. Can you tell us anything about your other projects?


They're still in the development stages, but one is a half-hour comedy, and the other is my ATTEMPT to add more fantasy into the hour-long genre. We'll see if it works!


One of the hardest parts of being a writer is actually trying to sell the book. A lot of authors spend years racking up rejections. Is the auditioning process similar to that?

Ooooh yes. It's even worse (well, from my perspective!) After you send in your book and get rejected, at least you get your book back and can take it other places. As an actor, you go in and do your interpretation of a role, and when you're rejected, they give it to someone else. It's not a judgment that you're necessarily bad, you just aren't what they're looking for, but it's hard not to take it personally. The mechanics of the actor's audition process is grueling, and I never ever will get to the point where I'm not anxious and nervous when I go in to read for a part.


Though it fills me with shame, I constantly check my Amazon Sales rank to see how well my book is selling. Most authors admit to doing the same thing. Is there anything similar that actors do?

Of course! Ratings are a #1 topic of conversation with anyone in the industry! Personally, I check my hits on YouTube a lot, especially the first few days after we post a video. The immediate feedback of the internet is pretty gratifying (and horrific depending on the comments : ) ) I have Google Alerts set up on my name and the show name and other phrases to constantly update me on what the web is saying about me/the show. After a while you get a much thicker skin, haha.


What sorts of things have people said over the years? Can you give us an example of something that's really gotten under your skin?

I really hate the racist comments against my cast members, I remove all those comments immediately. It's surprising how many they actually are, especially after we get featured on the front page of YouTube.

I also am irritated when people make fun of us for only putting out an episode a month, implying we're lazy or something. It touches on the part of me that is frustrated we don't have the budget or means to do them any quicker, but also shows that a lot of people don't understand what it takes to make a 5 minute short that looks much better than the average video. We don't just have one guy holding the camera, we have a real crew, who are all professionals, and who are working for free or near free. Hopefully for the next season that will not be an issue, as we're talking with several people who are interested in financing the show.


What's the weirdest fan moment you've ever had?

Well, I actually interact with fans on an everyday basis because I'm so wedded to the internet, so fan communication is actually a two way street with me and I generally ask fans for more stuff than they do of me! But the best experience I've had recently is when I visited Austin, and my brother and Dad and I went to Bed Bath and Beyond together to get a bath mat of all things, and a guy who worked there came up and asked me if I was Codex. Right in front of my Dad, which was so cool because not only did I create that character myself from scratch, my Dad got to see the reality that what I'm doing is "known". It was a great feeling.


You recently got to work with Joss Whedon on "Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog." What can you tell us about that?


I can tell you that it's going to be make a lot of people want to sing after hearing the music. Joss and his brothers Zack and Jed and Jed's fiance Maurissa wrote the show together to go on the internet in three parts. Joss had seen The Guild and had been percolating the idea of an internet musical for a while, and he said that watching the Guild was a part of the inspiration to get it done; that and the strike.


Hold on. You inspired Joss Whedon?


He said it was a PART of what spurred the work on Dr. Horrible. Don't make it seem like I'm claiming too much credit for it!! I worked with him on Buffy a few years ago and was crazy lucky enough for him to hire me for the part of Penny. I can't tell you what a fabulous experience it was working on it, the script and songs are fantastic! For someone in Joss' position to do something this experimental is great because not only is it going to be a huge success, it's going to make people look at internet content in a new way. I can't wait for it to be released!


Do you have a date for that?


I believe he said it will be released on the internet before Comicon.


Okay. I have to ask. Is Joss Whedon as cool as I think he is?


Yes, he's worthy of every kind of crush you could develop, I hate to say it. He's one of the most creative people I've ever met and he has a good and true heart. A real gentleman and a pleasure to be around.


Oh good. I have such a crush. I'm one tiny step away from setting up a little shrine in my house. It's only through a supreme effort of will that I've kept myself from doing something extreme to get him a copy of my book. I don't want to be that guy....


Let's say the impossible happens and The Name of the Wind gets made into a movie. We both agree it would be dreamy if Joss Whedon wrote or directed it, but what would your ideal cast be if you got your pick?

OMG that's hard, I'd have to read it again to refresh (the paperback is by my bed just for that purpose actually, haha!!)

Kvothe = Damien Lewis or a young version of him. (Life cop show, Band of Brothers) Jesse Tyler Ferguson also came to mind? (The Class)

Bast = the guy from American Beauty, Wes Bentley (What happened to him?)

Denna = Kiera Knightly or Natalie Portman definitely. Or the girl from Serenity: Morena Baccarin?


Oooh. Good picks. I hadn't ever thought of Morena Baccarin as Denna....

Would you have any interest in playing a part yourself?


My dream role would be Auri. I like playing damaged goods, haha.


So you live in LA, where everyone is beautiful. What happens when you take a trip to somewhere like Wisconsin. Is it traumatic looking at us regular folks?

That's funny! It is true that LA is filled with freakily beautiful people. I feel a lot prettier when I go out of town because the bar is set SOO high here! In LA I'm considered for the "plain" or "homely" characters mostly, I get called in for every one of those roles. They end up being more fun to play in the end, so I definitely don't mind. But going back to Austin and dressing up and getting head turns, that's pretty fun too, haha!


What's the worst part of the whole actor gig?

Auditioning. It's the most important part of the career, but you don't know that going into it. You have to consider auditioning the sole (unpaid) function of an acting career. When you actually get hired, that's the exception. And it's the thing that keeps you going, of course: Those moments when you're on set and working. There's nothing like it!


Any advice for aspiring actors and actresses out there?


Don't expect someone to pick you up off the street and make you a star: That's like winning the lottery. Make your own work. It will fill your hours with fulfillment and also lead to things you'd never expect.


Like with The Guild?


Yes! Like me with "The Guild"!


-----------


In a gesture of inspiring largess, Felicia has said that she's willing to give away 10 autographed photos to folks out there that would like one. Well, eleven pictures, if you're counting mine....

If you'd like to be part of the random drawing for one of those pictures, why don't you send me an e-mail at paperback.contest {swirly at symbol} gmail.com with your mailing address. We'll leave the drawing open until... say... May 12th.

Lastly, today marks the end of the paperback photo contest. I have to say that the response has been beyond anything I could have reasonably expected. There have been so many submissions that it's going to take me at least a week just to sort them out, judge the best of them, and award some prizes.

That means if you spaced out and forgot to send your entry in, you can probably sneak it in tomorrow and I'll pretend to be too busy sorting to notice....

Later all,

pat

Interview - Illusion TV
Bravo on yesterday's SAT questions. While I enjoyed them all, I actually laughed at "Kvothe is to Harry Potter as pudding is to cats." That was probably my favorite, though I did enjoy the buffy the vampire slayer one as well.

I had a longer post planned for today, but it's delayed due to a digital camera spasm of a mysterious sort. Hopefully it'll be sorted out by tomorrow...

For now, if you're bored, you can go enjoy the most recent interview HERE.

Fried Rice and a new Interview....

So the other day I order some Chinese food, because having someone bring food directly to your house and eating it in your jammies is perhaps the most decadent pleasure that exists.

I ordered some food for my girlfriend as well. This is partly because I'm sensitive and thoughtful and awesome. But, truthfully, it's also because if I didn't, she would just eat half of mine and then I'd be sad and hungry.

Just as the food arrived, my girlfriend called me and told me she'd be late getting home from work. I tell her that I'll wait dinner for her, again because of the awesome, and resist the urge to open the bag to get at the egg rolls. Instead I set the paper bag on my bed and cover it up with a blanket to keep it warm until she gets home.

Eventually she does, and we eat it, and it's lovely.

But that's not the end of the story. The end of the story is that now my blankets smell like chicken fried rice. You'd think this would be a bad thing, but not so much. Truth is, it's kinda nice, actually.

Ah yes. There you go. Another little peek into my life.

Why am I writing about this? Hell, I don't know. Why do I write anything? I suppose because it amuses me, and because I hope it might amuse you too.

If you're looking for more odd ramblings of mine, you can find them in the newest interview I've done over HERE at the Book Swede.

We talk, among other things, about monkeys.

New Interview: Concurring Opinions.


So last night I had a dream with Neil Gaiman in it. I can't for the life of me remember the details, but I'm pretty sure it wasn't a sex dream. Pretty sure.

What does this mean? Well, it's probably just because I met him recently, and I'm re-reading Sandman at the moment. But if I dream about him two more times... I'm pretty sure that means he's my spirit animal. Which wouldn't be too bad, all things considered.

It's been a while since I've done an interview, but a couple weeks ago a fellow named Dave Hoffman contacted me and asked if I'd like to do a Q & A of a slightly different sort for Concurring Opinions, a legal blog.

He asked a bunch of questions about how the legal system works in my world, some ethics and morality stuff too. And, of course, we chatted about other stuff, writing, teaching, worldbuilding, etc. It was fun, and I got to talk about a lot of things that haven't come up in other interviews.

Anyway, if you're interested in hearing me ramble on, the interview is OVER HERE.

Share and Enjoy,

New Interview: Straight From the Barrel.

For those of you who are into Q & A interviews, you can find the newest one HERE.

We talk about world building and... um.... Clowns? Honestly I can't remember what I say on these things after I'm done with them. So your guess is probably as good as mine....

And for those of you that have e-mailing and asking, yes I do have a facebook account. That's really me on there. So, feel free to ADD ME, if you like. The more the merrier, as far as I'm concerned.

If you're looking for the deluxe facebook experience, you could sign up for the facebook group someone created a while back... It's called: PAT ROTHFUSS'S LEGION OF FANATICAL MINIONS.

And it's back to revisions for me....

An interview with Adventures Underground.

If you thought I'd managed to talk myself out in the Question and Answer interview format, you were sadly mistaken.

Proof of this is evident in a new interview over at ADVENTURES UNDERGROUND.

I'm almost always surprised when I go back and read these interviews. You see, I've got a weird memory. I forget things really easily. Sometimes my friends tell stories about me, things that I don't remember doing. Or they repeat jokes back to me that I don't remember telling in the first place. Sometimes when I'm revising my own books, I stumble onto scenes I don't remember writing. In fact, I just found one of those where Elodin takes Kvothe to a brothel as part of instruction into the subtle and volatile art of naming. Funny stuff.

My point is, after I do one of these interviews, I usually forget what I've said. So when the Q & A goes live and the person hosting it sends me a link, I get to read them over and experience them with fresh eyes. Sometimes I agree with what I've said. Most of the time, actually. Sometimes I disagree, or find myself wishing I'd phrased things a little more clearly.

Sometimes I find myself thinking things like, "Wow, that's exactly what I think!"Then I feel dumb because, well, of course it's what I think. Or at least, it's what I thought back when I wrote it a week or two ago. My opinions are fluid and frangible. Does this mean I occasionally contradict myself? Very well then, I contradict myself.

I think this is healthy. Or at least it makes me happy, which means it's healthy for me. I've always felt that I've had the right to disagree with anyone about anything. How horrible then would it be if I didn't feel free to disagree with myself?

Enough rambling. You can go CHECK OUT THE INTERVIEW if you're curious.

They also have a few signed copies of my book there, if you're into that sort of thing.

Yet Another Interview....
If you're into this sort of thing, it's over here.

This review was a little more casual, and smart-assery was encouraged. So while I always enjoy the opportunity to talk about books and writing, I enjoyed this interview in a different way. Not only was it more relaxed, but I got to be snarky.

Plus I was allowed to cuss a little and I made fun of the interviewer for being long-winded. Which is pretty funny if you think about it....
