Book Review: The Dance of the Possible: the mostly honest completely irreverent guide to creativity by Berkun, Scott
Hello, I hope you find the time to answer my questions :)
I read the Sword of Truth series (up to Confessor - I have not read any of the later books) perhaps a decade ago. I enjoyed the series for the most part, but I always felt that the first few books were the strongest, and towards the end of the series (starting around Faith of the Fallen) I felt that the characters had become a bit too…shall we say “preachy” about their particular worldviews.
My questions are:
Did you initially plan the series to be so many books?
Was it originally your plan to introduce philosophical themes such as Objectivist ideas later on in the books?
Which parts of the series would you say are the strongest and you are most proud of?
Any technical advice you would give to an aspiring fantasy writer trying to get a book sold?
