To coincide with the launch of Caminho das Sombras (The Way of Shadows) in Brazil, Brent has done a few interviews. You can find the first here, at Ficções Humanas (Human Fictions), a website devoted to reviewing and discussing the arts.
When I first published The Way of Shadows, I made a joke in the back about ‘Where I get my ideas’ (a question every writer gets–a lot). I said I had no ideas, I just paid a Bulgarian to think them up for me…
Can’t tell you the number of times I’ve had people think I was serious. (How do I get this kind of idea-making-up job? Why a Bulgarian? Aren’t American ideas good enough for you?)
But now I have another reason to not use that joke–because the first two books of the Lightbringer Series is coming to Bulgaria! We’ve also picked up a few other languages. The entire Night Angel trilogy is coming to Brazil, Romania is testing the waters with The Way of Shadows, France picks up Perfect Shadow, and mainland China will be getting the entire Lightbringer Series.
Also, because it’s Valentine’s Day, take this yawning baby hedgehog. No one can be sad when they see a yawning baby hedgehog.
