“I'd like to emphasize that when a reader finishes a great novel, he will immediately begin looking for another. If someone loves your book, it increases the chance that he or she will look at mine. So there is no competition between writers. Another writer's success helps build a larger readership for all of us.”
David Farland

“There is no such thing as an evil genius, as evil in it's self is stupidity.”
David Farland, The Wizard of Ooze
