Hey Brent, first off, huge fan of your books. Secondly, huge fan of your personality and approach to being an author! You care about the fans and you work your ass off to bring us quality books in a timely fashion, so hats off to you sir.
You moron! That's not a question! Uh, I mean... thanks! I don't write as fast as a couple of folks in the genre, But I do try to write as fast as I can while keeping the quality as high as I can. And then my real secret is that I communicate from time to time how it's going. _Everyone_ would love it if I wrote a book a year, or heck, four books a year, but I've found that fans are very understanding that epic fantasy just takes time, as long as I try to give a head's up every so often.
