Epic fantasy author Brian McClellan invited Brent to chat on Page Break, Brian’s new podcast.
Brent and Brian dig pretty deep into the world of an epic fantasy writer – they talk about the bloat experienced by most long series; how writing dark scenes can affect mental health; what Brent is up to next; and how to choose what to remove and what to leave in a story. Enjoy Brian’s conversation with Brent Weeks!

You can also find Brian at his website, on Twitter and Instagram, or find his books on Amazon, direct from his bookstore, or your favorite local bookstore.
One is a titan of modern fantasy. The other is some guy. Join them online to learn which is which.

Brent talked to Jeff Somers with B&N’s sci-fi and fantasy blog last week:
Well friends, the tour is winding down, THE BURNING WHITE is being devoured by readers around the world, and Halloween is days away.
It really is the most wonderful time of the year.
Today we have an interview for the Author Stories Podcast, recorded last summer and released a few days ago (I know, I know, we’re a bit behind, but hey, it’s a small price to pay to meet 1,000 fans out on the road).
Here you go:
Hi beloved fiends!
This week was Weeks Week with the fine folks over on The Legendarium podcast. They shared several glorious Weeks-themed issues throughout the week. Fill your earholes forthwith:
Happy Thursday friends!
Brent had a great time talking to Daniel Greene yesterday–about books, and writing, and YouTube, and literate potatoes*…
Wait, not potatoes. BookTubers!
Sit down with these two guys on your lunch break, leave an upvote and a friendly comment, subscribe to Daniel’s YT page, and of course make sure you’ve pre-ordered your copy of THE BURNING WHITE!
*c’mon, y’all, this is funny! Potato = tuber, YouTuber > BookTuber > potato that reads…. Why am I the only one who thinks I’m funny?
Brent held the August edition of his monthly Q&R on Facebook LIVE last week. In case you missed it, see below, in all its unparalleled glory:
