Garrett Robinson There's actually very few people I enjoy hanging out with very often. But as a writer I get to hang out with people who are way, way cooler than I am.

I've read 'The Hobbit' more times than I can count, and I've read 'The Lord of the Rings' once a year since I was 11 years old.

I think Rothfuss' 'The Name of the Wind' is probably my favorite fantasy novel of the last decade.

Katherine Kerr and Patricia A. McKillip are two of the most underrated authors in all of fantasy. Their series should be listed among the genre's tentpoles, well above the overly-derivative works that are usually listed in the top spots.

I don't know about bench press, but I can FRENCH press about four cups a day, and if I don't, good luck getting me to write.(less)

WRITER WEDNESDAY: How to Find A Cover Artist [CC]

Hello, Writer, and welcome back to my life.

It's Writer Wednesday, the day where I give you my tips and advice on the art and the business of writing, and tell you how I do what I do as an indie author.

Today's question comes to us from patron Kristen Stevens, who asks:

How do you find a cover artist that you like?

That's it. That's the question.

You CAN read either series without the other. You'll understand everything that's going on.

I read two back-to-back classic dystopian sci-fi novels in a row, first Farenheit 451, and then this. To be honest, I didn't enjoy either of them.

The concept of Brave New World is interesting and the message remains very relevant and important. But I
