In this week's new Writing Excuses episode, Q&A on Elemental Horror, Steve Diamond joins us for our third and final Elemental Horror episode as we field your questions about this particular building block. Here are the questions we selected from your submissions:


  • If I want to make peanut butter terrifying without being silly, how do I do that?

  • What is your personal line between horror and “gore-nography?”

  • How do you avoid going too far with graphic elements?

  • Soundtracks are huge for horror movies. How do you set the mood without this tool?

  • What’s the best way for a thriller writer to edge into writing horror?

  • How do you decide when to show the monster, and how does it change the story when that happens?



Last week, in Tor.com’s continuing reread posts for Words of Radiance, the four highprinces agreed to push on toward the center of the Shattered Plains, while Kaladin had an uncomfortable conversation with Elhokar. This week, in Chapter 81, Shallan’s map is completed and battle is joined, while Kaladin is again uncomfortable.

I'm going to be heading to Phoenix at the beginning of June with the Writing Excuses crew for Phoenix Comicon. Our schedule is still being finalized, but as soon as that's done the details of my part of the schedule will be posted on the upcoming events page on my website. Also, my assistant Kara is running my booth at PHXCC, and she's looking for local volunteers to help out. She has put a sign-up sheet here.

The ebook for Perfect State is still on sale at 99¢ worldwide (with some minor local variation). Mitosis is also on sale at 99¢ (at least in the US) for the rest of May. And starting today through the end of this weekend, for Audible members who have an available credit in their account, Steelheart is available in an Audible 2-for-1 sale. (That link only works if you have at least one credit. I don't know whether this is US-only or what.)

In this week's new Writing Excuses episode, Fashion for Writers, Rebecca McKinney sits down with us on how we should go about describing the clothing our characters are wearing. How do we use that to add depth to our story? What are the common mistakes that writers make when they start dressing their characters?

Last week, in Tor.com’s continuing reread posts for Words of Radiance, Dalinar received a surprise or two that he badly needed. This week, in Chapter 79, he has his first actual conversation with a Listener since his brother was killed, and learns more surprising new notions.

As I mentioned last week, my standalone novella Perfect State has been nominated for this year's Hugo Award. In honor of that nomination, the ebook is now on sale at 99¢ worldwide (with some local variation). Check your region by using the widget to the right. I'll soon post the deleted scene and the annotation that I mentioned, but I want to tweak the annotation a bit first.

In other news, here's a video by YouTuber Skillagrim arguing Lightsabers vs. Shardblades. (You can see more of his stuff on Facebook and his YouTube channel.) Note: SPOILERS for Words of Radiance.



There are a couple of new Writing Excuses episodes I haven't mentioned yet. The first, Elemental Adventure Q&A, where we answer many of the questions you may still have questions about how to apply elemental adventure in your work. Hopefully your questions are similar to the ones we collected below, because these are the ones we answered:


  • What do readers like more: protagonists going through lots of different incidents and locations, or through a few that are similar to each other?

  • What lessons can we learn from adventure games?

  • How can we make action scenes that adventurous, but that are not fight scenes?

  • Are there tropes we should stay away from in adventure fiction?

  • Do you have suggestions for non-western styles of adventure fiction?

  • How do you safely skip the long, boring parts of a journey without missing out on necessary character development?



For the second episode, Elemental Horror, we're joined by Steve Diamond, who helps us kick off our month on the elemental genre of horror. We explore the emotional components that readers seek from horror, and then drill down into the ways that we can create those reactions in our readers.

Last week, in Tor.com’s continuing reread posts for Words of Radiance, Shallan and Navani began their scholarly collaboration, while Kaladin started to take small steps back toward Honor. This week, in Chapter 78, Shallan gives Dalinar some truth and some defiance, and Parshendi are encountered.

Introduction



I’m pleased, and proud, to announce that my novella Perfect State has been nominated for a Hugo Award. I look forward to seeing many of you in Kansas City, at this year’s Worldcon.

I’ve prepared a deleted scene and annotation for Perfect State, which I’ll be releasing soon in celebration. I would normally put this up today, but I have something else I want to talk about first.

If you’re not interested in the behind-the-scenes of the Hugos, this would be a good place to stop reading. I know many of you are tired of hearing about the politics of the award. Starting next year the rules are changing so that all this will be less big of a deal. So if you’re not interested, you can move on and safely know this is probably going to die down eventually.

Thank you to everyone who nominated.

For those who want to know my thoughts on the actual politics of it, feel free to keep reading. I’m going to assume you’re at least passingly familiar with Sad Puppies, and what happened last year.

Sad Puppies



For the 2015 season, and the one before, I proactively went to Sad Puppies and asked them not to include any of my works on their slates. I did this for a few reasons.

First: Many of the Sad Puppies felt that there was a behind-the-scenes cabal working in science fiction to prevent people with certain ideological views from winning awards. (They named Tor Books, my publisher, as a kind of illuminati-like force behind this.)

This is terribly inaccurate. I know a lot about Tor. I love Tor. Editors and staff at Tor couldn’t agree on what to order for lunch most days; I sincerely doubt they could pull strings on something like award nominations. Tor is a huge group of editors with vast ideological differences, and they represent some of the best people in fandom I’ve ever known. Some very vocal ones are ideologically opposed to many of those in Sad Puppies, but there are plenty who have other opinions.

Beyond that, I’ve seen many people who are conservative, or who write popular fiction, win Hugo Awards. I was sympathetic to the claim (made by the Puppies) that the stories they like weren’t getting nominations, and I encouraged them to participate and nominate. But I didn’t want to be part of their movement, because I felt it had shaky foundations.

Second: I didn’t like the way many of the Puppies talked. They could be belligerent and argumentative, using tactics that felt more likely to silence opposition instead of provoke discussion. In addition, they associated with people even worse. (More on this below.) Some leaders in the movement verbally attacked people I respect and love.

Third: I didn’t like the idea of a slate for the Hugos—a specific list of stories, which (at least implicitly) encouraged the followers to vote exactly the same as their fellows. I felt this put ideology ahead of quality, which is against the spirit of the Hugo Awards.

These awards are supposed to be about the best of sf/f. We are not supposed to vote or nominate simply for our favorite writers, nor choose things just because they advance our viewpoint. (Though things we nominate and vote for can indeed do both things.) We are to examine pieces outside of authorship and pick ones that represent the best of the community.

I am passionate about this award. (I wrote about this in the past, giving my reasons why.) As a Hugo laureate myself, I don’t want to see the Hugo being treated poorly. I felt that the slate the Puppies were advocating was dangerous for the award, and against its spirit.

Last Year: Behind the Scenes



Last year, I spent many months in communication with the organizers of Sad Puppies. Several of them live here in Utah. I considered myself in a good position to speak with them, as I was friendly and on good terms with them—but ideologically, I was on the other side: rather liberal politically, published by the very publisher they were disparaging.

We exchanged very long emails. My goal was to convince them there was no cabal against them, to encourage them to be more understanding in their posts, and to steer them away from slates. I felt that if they would present themselves better to those inside “mainstream” fandom, they would find themselves welcomed into the community.

I also wrote letters to people on what I’ll term “my side.” Many of these went to my editor, Moshe, who came to the forefront of many anti-puppies arguments on Facebook and on blogs. I argued to him that the Sad Puppies are a legitimately passionate group of fans, deserving of being listened to. I told him we should hear them out and encourage them to participate in the community. (So long as they can do so without being hateful.)

At the end of the season, I feel that in much of the media the Sad Puppies were treated poorly. People ignored many of their points, calling them names instead of looking at what they were actually saying. At the Hugo Awards ceremony, I was not fond of the way many in the audience applauded when No Award won. (I can understand voting No Award, mind you, but I feel the applause was in terrible taste—and in many cases it hurt members of our community who deserved better.)

Because of this, I decided this year not to ask Sad Puppies to remove me from their list. This is in part because believe that the Sad Puppies—though misguided in places and still way too belligerent—love science fiction and fantasy, and have evolved into a group that really does want to see the Hugo treated well.

More importantly, I don’t believe I should be in the business of choosing which fans are allowed to like, or not like, my fiction. And this is a more important point I think we need to discuss.

The Darker Side



As most probably agree, the Sad Puppies are not the big problem here. There is another group who are simply determined to burn the house down, with everyone inside. Though there might be people in this group who are sincere, I believe that their leader (and much of the movement) is instead just trying to stir up controversy. They paint targets on people expressly to subject them to hateful ridicule. They have targeted friends of mine this way, and have said terrible, terrible things. They worked to nominate things simply out of spite and amusement.

I want nothing to do with them at all. Unfortunately, this year they put me on their slate. (Along with some other fan-favorite authors like Lois Bujold, Stephen King, and Neal Stephenson.)

If I’d known I was on this list, I would have asked to be taken off of it. This year, their list seems to include some people (I can’t know if I’m one) who are mainstream. People liked in the community, or likely to get a nomination anyway. They’ve done this, I presume, in order to see whether these people too would get “No Award.”

I can’t know how much the nomination of my novella was helped by this group, and even contemplating the idea is distasteful to me. This puts me in the position of having to decide whether or not to withdraw my nomination. It wouldn’t be heartbreaking for me to do so. I’ve won a Hugo in this category before, during the pre-Puppy years. I think my story is strong, but I will write other, stronger stories in the future. I’d be fine sitting it out this year.

I think that would be bad for fandom, and the award. Though I agree with those who withdrew nominations last year, I think we’re entering into a dangerous area. If we withdraw anytime someone like this person puts us on a slate, that gives them an enormous amount of power over us and the award. In addition, if we vote something under No Award anytime someone we don’t like advocates for it, then that’s the same as letting that person win the award whenever they want. Either way, we’re just being pushed around by a troll.

I’d like to think that we’ve learned from last year, and I have decided not to withdraw my nomination. I realize I’m setting myself up for being part of a potential blanket “No Award” voting slate this year. I will accept that, if it happens. But I don’t think letting a troll dictate my actions is going to work out better for me. And I certainly don’t want to insult the fans who nominated my work in good faith.

Therefore, I will stand by what I’ve always said: Nominate and vote for me only if you think the story itself deserves the recognition. Don’t vote for (or against) any person or their ideas. Vote for or against the story. Even when the nomination rules change next year (thankfully), we’re still likely to have a candidate in every category that was nominated in by certain elements.

In many cases, I feel it’s going to be impossible to separate which nominees are the result of trolls throwing rocks at us and which are the result of passionate fans who simply have different views from the mainstream. We’re going to have to do better than counter-voting, a point which many voices in the community, including Scalzi and GRRM, made last year.

I request that my fellow nominees consider not withdrawing. And I request that voters continue to look at the individual stories, artists, and editors, and judge based on the nominee themselves—rather than judging based on who is advocating for them.

In this week’s new Writing Excuses episode, Adventure as a Subgenre, we explore using the element of adventure as an ingredient in something that has far more than adventure going on in it. Why do we like adventure? What draws the reader forward?

Last week, in Tor.com’s continuing reread posts for Words of Radiance, Taravangian saw the fruition of his plans in Jah Keved, and got a surprise visit. This week, in Chapter 76, Part Five launches with unanticipated alliances, unexpected revelations—and a discarded cloak.

Yesterday I announced the forthcoming Mistborn board game, Mistborn: House War. If you haven't read that post yet, check it out!

I hit two conventions recently, first Salt Lake City FanX and then up to Wisconsin for Odyssey Con this past weekend. (I will be at JordanCon in Atlanta next weekend.) Here's a small sampling of photos from the two cons. The FanX photographer was long-time reader Michael Bacera, and the Odyssey Con photos were taken by my assistant Adam. If you know someone in the photos, or see yourself, feel free to tag yourself on Facebook so you can brag to your friends.

In this week’s new Writing Excuses episode, The Environment, with L.E. Modessit, Jr., the latter joined us at LTUE for a discussion centered around the way the environment informs the story. We talk about lead in Roman plumbing, water lilies in Las Vegas sewers, and coal power in the British Empire, and how these examples can help us more effectively use the environments in our stories.

Last week, in Tor.com’s continuing reread posts for Words of Radiance, we saw riots in Kholinar and suspicion in Narak. This week, in Interludes 12 and 13, war has devastated Jah Keved, and we join Taravangian there for the continuance of his strategy.

I’ve been touring around so much lately, I haven’t had a chance to do write about something very important to me. My middle grade fantasy series, Alcatraz vs. the Evil Librarians, is finally back in print. Huzzah!

These goofy books have quite the devoted following, and over the years one of the number one questions I got was when the series would return. We had a problem with the previous publisher—well, multiple problems. In the end we parted ways, and the intrepid publisher of my epic fantasy books (and The Rithmatist), Tor Books, came to the rescue, offering to do quality reissues.

It took us a long time, because I wanted to do these books right this time. When I first published the books, I didn’t have the experience in the industry that I do now. And a lot went wrong, both on my part and on the publisher’s part, in bringing them to the world.

The first two reissued books are already out in stores right now. The next two are coming soon, with the brand-new, previously unreleased fifth book in September! I’d appreciate you giving them a look. You’ll most likely find them in the young readers section of your bookstore. (These are ostensibly targeted a little younger than The Rithmatist, which you should find in the YA section.)

If you’ve never given the books a shot, I’ll provide a pitch for you below. If you already enjoy the Alcatraz books, you can skip that and go right to the What’s New in These Editions section below that.

The Pitch:



These books are ridiculous in an awesome way.

I started the first one because I needed a break from the Mistborn series. You see, my intent was to write Mistborn straight through as a trilogy. I wanted the final one completed before the first one had to be done with editing.

This was super ambitious of me to try, and while I pulled it off, I did need a distraction between books. A palate cleanser. (This was the first place where I realized I’m much more effective as a writer if I take periodic breaks to try something new, refreshing myself for the writing process.)

In this case, I needed something freeform, loose, and fun. I started with a brainstorming session, trying to pull together the best—but most screwy—ideas that I could. Things that I thought were very fun, but which would never work in a more traditional fantasy novel.

What I did in brainstorming reminds me a lot of how an improv comedy troupe comes up with jokes—toss a bunch of props in a bag, shake them up, and then start pulling them out and see what you can do with them. The first novel was a pure joy of discovery writing, with me juggling multiple elements in an attempt to hit all the points I’d set up for myself. It was so much fun, I did another one between the next two epic fantasy books I wrote.

Because of this, these books are very different from my other books. They’re comedies, for one thing, with a sarcastic narrator who makes fun of the writing process. You get a lot of (hopefully entertaining) commentary from the narrator on what makes books work, along with a lot of the hallmarks of my writing—done in a new way.

For example, everyone in Alcatraz’s family has talents—being able to arrive late to appointments, or being really, really bad at dancing. Both of these become super powers, in a Sanderson-esque magic system, but with a strange twist. When I’m asked who the books are for, I really feel that the perfect target is 10–14-year-old kids who are too smart for their own good, and who like a healthy dose of sarcasm. But if you’ve got an inner child with that kind of sensibility, you might like them too.

Either way, have a look at the samples, and see if it’s something that would appeal to you.


The Reissues



I’ve never, ever been satisfied with the covers of the Alcatraz books.

The original American covers were misfires. Though I like the illustrator, the direction the publisher had him take for the books just never worked. They were a busy CG and photography mashup that ended up looking like a collage.

However, I understand their difficulty in trying to figure out how to capture these books. Publishers around the world have tried all kinds of tactics, and none have ever really clicked. The problem is that the books are an epic adventure comedy mix, and that’s hard to convey without looking silly. Many countries take one of two approaches. Either they just put abstract symbols on the cover, kind of avoiding the issue, or they try to make them look like Brandon Sanderson epic fantasy novels—which I think is unfair. Readers need to know going into these books that they’re intended to be lighthearted.

That’s why I like Tor’s take on these so much, painted by Scott Brundage. The following images are, for the first time, covers that capture the feel of the books. Explosive, fun, but also decidedly strange. After we got the first few sketches, I knew we were heading somewhere incredible.

al_book1.jpg

al_book1.jpg

al_book1.jpg

Getting good covers was a primary goal for these reissues, but there was more we wanted to do. These books practically scream for interior illustrations. So we contacted Hailey Lazo, an illustrator who had done some Alcatraz fanart we liked online. She sent us some sketches and we fell in love with them, immediately hiring her for the project.

Each of these books is packed with drawings of characters, places, scenes. Many of them are little inserts rather than full page spreads—and they match the tone of the books perfectly. If you have the old editions, you might want to consider an upgrade.











We needed one last piece to make these editions special. In the first book, Alcatraz comes across a map of the world—one that stuns him, as it contains new continents he’d never heard of. Nothing evokes just how bizarre all this is more than seeing it laid out in visual form as a world map, and so it was time to call in Isaac (cartographer for Mistborn and the Stormlight books, among others) to give us his best Alcatraz map.



It has been printed in full color on the inside of the jackets. That’s right—your hardcover book jacket doubles as a poster map of the world. I love this idea, and I would like to try it out for future books like in the Stormlight series. It seems pretty handy to be able to pull off the jacket, set it out, and use the map for reference while reading.

This is only on the print edition, and only on the hardcovers, so give them a look! Many of the stores where I went on tour (listed below) had copies in stock, and they might even have some signed ones left!

Anyway, thank you so much for supporting this quirky little series over the years. It’s back because of your enthusiasm. You wouldn’t let it die, and these beautiful new editions are your (and my) reward.

Writing Excuses, my podcast, now has a Patreon.

Patreon is a different kind of crowdfunding vehicle. Here, instead of giving money to fund some product, you give a little money each month to support an ongoing artistic endeavor. In turn, based on how much you are pledging each month, you get rewards.

I have no intent to start a Patreon for my own writing. I feel you already support me in that more than well enough. I have the freedom to write the books I love, and the best thing you can do for me there is just to read them. (And maybe suggest them to your friends.)

Writing Excuses is a different beast. It’s meant as a public service, primarily for writers, but really for anyone who is interested in the process of telling a story. If you haven’t ever listened to it, I suggest starting with the first episode of Season Ten, last year’s run.

Writing Excuses has a lot of costs associated with it. We feel it’s important to do in person, because of the chemistry of the hosts, so we spend a lot on plane tickets. We also hire audio engineers, buy expensive equipment, and (perhaps most expensively) request the time of the various hosts and guests. Up until now, we’ve used advertisements from Audible to support the podcast—and they’ve been truly awesome to work with.

However, this is exactly the sort of thing Patreon is for—letting the fans support, and have ownership, over their podcast. So if you listen, or are curious, take a look.

Rewards


We’re basically doing two reward levels. (There’s also $1 tip donation, and a few higher donations for those who want to give to a scholarship or really support us. But the two main donations levels are the middle ones.)

$5 a month gets you early access to the podcast, a standard thing for Patreons like this. You’ll get to listen to them a few days before everyone else.

$10 a month is the sweet spot. This is where we’ll be providing bonus content. We promise one cool item a month, though it’s my goal to give more than that. We’ll see how it plays out.

This month, I sent in the first chapter of a novella I worked on while flying to the Middle East last month. It’s about 3k words, along with some commentary on a revision issue I’m trying to figure out for the story. I hope to be dropping things like this in often—little previews of what I’m working on, or deleted scenes, or commentary on snags I’ve had while writing.

I hope that the podcast, and the tidbits we’re adding as a thank you, are helpful to all of you out there! Many thanks for the support over the years.

In this week’s new Writing Excuses episode, Elemental Idea Q&A, Shannon Hale joined us at LTUE 2016 to field questions about the Idea elemental genre. Here are the questions:


  • How do you keep an elemental idea story from feeling like you’re just waiting for the idea to “unlock”?

  • How do you tie your character motivations to the idea?

  • How do you know when you’ve satisfactorily explored the idea?

  • Are there elemental idea stories that you just need to give up on?

  • Is there such a thing as “idea clutter”?



Last week, in Tor.com’s continuing reread posts for Words of Radiance, we finished off Part Four, when Kaladin and Shallan returned with their contributions for the upcoming expedition. This week, in Part Four Epigraphs, we’ll take a step back and examine the letter comprising the epigraphs of Part Four.
