Talking to Canadians

And for those of you for whom that long interview on Strombo's show was not enough, here's even more footage of me talking (and talking, and talking, an even reading a bit) on my recent visit to Toronto.

These are from my appearance at the TIFF Lightbox, where I was interviewed by the delightful Terry Hart. I yakked so much we had to break this down into three parts.

Part, the First


Part, the Second


The final third also contains a taste of what's to come in the form of a short (very short) reading from THE WINDS OF WINTER. However, if you have not read up through A DANCE WITH DRAGONS, you may want to skip this. Spoilers lurk ahead.

Part, the Third


Enjoy.

All the things you share are the very things I am paranoid about but you've given me hope and put me at ease.

Like names, they ARE very hard! I think I am like your friend you mention though, in that I can't name my characters until I know who they are, then I have to find the name that feels like them.

Also the "steal ideas" fear. I agree and figure if you have ideas for my book, feel free to write your own. ;)

Your mention of the fan that will be upset for killing off their favorite reminds me of that Steven King fan that breaks the writer's ankles! :O

I have to admit, your books are indeed torture for me, but still I cannot put them down.

I very much get your answers to the broad strokes of the journey but as you say it can morph at any point depending on the unplanned inspiration. Your work has done this for me and I deeply thank you.

I also love How to Train a Dragon...so I don't know where that puts me. :P

Best of everything to you!
