In today’s episode of Signal Boost, Paul talks to Joseph Brassey about the second book in his Drifting Lands series, Dragon Road. Careful, because there are spoilers for the first book in the series, Skyfarer, which you should definitely go read right away. When you’re ready, listen to Joseph discuss how he likes to explore what makes good characters good people, what type of redemption arc he has written, and a little bit about how comedy and his improv background inform his writing.
Then Paul is joined by our very own Michael R. Underwood to talk about his brand new Serial Box Publishing project, Born to the Blade. They discuss the process that Mike went through to get Born to the Blade from a concept to a Serial Box project and what it’s like to work with 3 other authors (Marie Brennan, Cassandra Khaw, and Malka Older) in a collaborative story-telling process, including what changed from the original concept.
We hope you enjoy the episode!
