Yadda Yadda Yadda

For those of you out there who have not yet gotten your fill of hearing me talk as yet, there are a couple of new interviews up on the net that you might want to check out.

From my visit to the UK in April, an interview with British television personality and journalist Grace Dent (beware, there are some BIG SPOILERS in this one).

((The interview was actually much longer than that. They added some spiff visuals and clips of the show, but trimmed some of the Q and especially the A... and also said some rather extravagant stuff about yours truly that made my modesty klaxon go off as I watched it. Still, a fun interview. At least for me)).

And for the popular webcast Sword & Laser, here I am again, just last week:

The Sword & Laser episode also contains an episode with the fellow who wrote the book about philosophy in GAME OF THRONES, a discussion of Guy Gavriel Kay's novel TIGANA, and some other cool stuff. And check out their excellent interview with James S.A. Corey from a couple of episodes back as well.

Both interesting interviews. I had no idea Grace Dent was a fan.
Are you really the best selling author in the English language now?? I knew you were big, but not that big! The power of TV.
Guess that means you're not cool any more - I'd better stop reading your books immediately! ;)

That startled me as well. It is possible that I was the best-selling author LAST YEAR, when DANCE came out and all the older books went roaring up the lists.

Overall, though, no way. J.K. ROwling's sales dwarf mine, but she didn't have a book last year. Stephen King, John Grisham, Nora Roberts and many, many others have much greater sales figures than I do, lifetime. Even within epic fantasy, Robert Jordan's books have usually sold more than my own.

So if the statement is true at all, which I cannot vouch for, it is true only in a very limited context.

Still... I ain't complaining. I love my readers, and I have a lot of them.
