Here’s a fun video we took of me opening up a box of author copies of the Super Special Night Angel 10th Anniversary All-Black Hardcover Omnibus, with their pristine, non-smearing slipcovers.

Surprise! I answered some more fan questions. Two months in a row!
The Facebook Q&R is embedded below for your enjoyment.
I also have a note about this video that I wanted to share. Around 1:30, I talk about biological versus adoptive parents. I used the phrase “real parents” intending obvious air quotes—the first time or so. I sort of lost that denotation as I referenced that a few more times and was thinking about other things. My point—which I hope I didn’t clumsily obscure—is that adoptive parents absolutely are real parents. Forgive my infelicitous phrasing around what can be a tender point.”
Since Brent mentioned a number of fantastic books for everyone to check out in today’s Facebook Q&R video, we put together the list (with links!) of authors & titles here.

Here’s a translation of the text:
Pour Azoth survivre est une lutte de tous les instants
For Azoth survival is an every day struggle (battle)
Son seul espoir,
His only hope,
la voie des ombres,
the way of shadows
en devenant l’apprenti
by becoming the apprentice
du maitre assassin
of the master assassin
You can see more of Salomé’s work on their YouTube page.
Brent went with a longer Q&A this month, focusing on a couple of writing advice questions. You can watch the video below.
“How many characters are modeled after real people? What are your favorite hunting spots for random characters?” .34
“How do you keep track of all the clues and foreshadowing from your previous books and tie any new ideas into what you’ve already published?” 3.26
Got any other questions? Ask them in the comments, and he’ll answer a few more next month.
