  1. Just listened to this during my commute this morning. I am actually in the middle of this book right now. I really like it. I am into history a lot, I tend to gravitate to Roman times, but Napoleon is cool too. I really like the use of dragons- I noticed when i was reading it her use of all the various types of dragons and agreed with what she said in the interview that of course there will be various kinds of dragons.

    Also, I like that all 3 books have come out so soon, because I hate when I start a trilogy and have to wait a year or two for the next one.

    Love the show!

  2. I had heard you mention this series and the author a couple of times before. After listening to this interview I'm definitely going to give the first book a try. Points taken from the interview:

    1. Somehow become friends with a book agent :)
    2. If you have talent, your novel can get picked up by a publisher, even if you don't have a portfolio full of existing published works.

    Now I just have to figure out how to get both of these myself.
