This morning, bright and early, I had an interview with Mr. R. A. Salvatore of Drizzt Do’Urden fame. Keep an eye open for that. However, in the meantime, he’s holding an Ask Me Anything over on Reddit that’s definitely worth a peek. Get involved and join in on the conversation.
My favorite question and answer so far? When asked if he kept a series bible:
“WotC keeps one, and it’s a good thing! Too many books! Too many years!
I remember I was thrilled when I started writing ‘Servant of the Shard’ because Jarlaxle could finally be front and center. Then I was terrified because I was on a tight deadline and realized that I had no idea of what this guy had for equipment, given all of his cameos in the previous books. So I went to a message board anonymously and started a thread ‘Let’s inventory Jarlaxle’s cool items!’ A few days later, I downloaded and printed the 10-page thread – these folks had put in page numbers from the books and everything in their discussion of Jarlaxle…”
I hope you enjoy the interview tomorrow!
