I'm at LTUE

I'm currently sitting in a conference room at BYU listening to great authors discuss the difference between Urban Fantasy and Contemporary Fantasy. Good news its selling well right now.

Wish you could all be here. We will let you know how it goes.
Comment on who you want to know from and I'll get you quotes for next week.


In the art of podcasting Dan and Howard are talking about how much recognition they get from their podcasts.

Info you need for this quote: Their podcast is calledWriting Excuses:
"15 minutes long, because you're in a hurry and we're not that smart."

Dan said, "I can't even tell you how many times I've been in a hallway at a conference and people stop and say, "I know that voice. You're Dan Wells. You're not that smart."

Howard said, "That's better than my experience at Storymakers where these sweet LDS women come up to me and say, 'I know you. You're Howard Tayler. You're 15 minutes long."

In a discussion about answering the question about why he has put supernatural elements into an otherwise 'crime' story. He said he put it in because he wanted to he thought the idea was awesome. Then he said this:

"That's Awesome" is arguably the best reason for making every decision you make while writing a story. Dan Wells


  1. Wish I was at LTUE too. Tomorrow, my friend. I'll be there tomorrow.

  2. Sad to be missing it this year, but oh well. A season and time for everything.
