Brandon's Podcasts
« on: January 07, 2010, 01:47:34 PM »
There are alot of these. Can someone direct me to ones that talk about how Brandon broke into the writing business. I have seen some info on it. How he stalked TOR at Conventions and wrote 13 books before he got published. I am curious why his 6th Book Elantris was the first one published. Why was this one more ready than his other books?

George RR Martin(another fantasy author and friend of Robert Jordan) recommends starting with short stories. So it is interesting that Brandon was able to do it by compusively writing whole novels.

I learned about Brandon since he is the guy who took over Wheel of Time. I have started reading Mistborn and I like it so far. I like the way he jumps into the action.

The Writing Excuses episode on conventions has some of this, iirc.
