Questions for super star Jen Williams?
« on: February 03, 2016, 01:07:17 PM »
Does anyone have any questions for the lovely, awesome, talented Jen Williams - author of the Copper Cat trilogy, which concludes with The Silver Tide later this month?

As you can probably tell, I'm really excited to interview one of our community's favourite authors and want to make sure I put all your questions to her. Lets make sure we tease some great answers , everyone! :D

I really enjoyed reading about Holley, the Secret Keeper, and her house, her workshop, her glass. Why was she such a short-lived character, wouldn't you have liked to extend her importance?

(I'll think of more later)

Apart from enjoying audible versions of books, many actually rely on them. The Copper Promise on audible was a pleasure and read perfectly by Toni Green. Will The Iron Ghost and The Silver Tide make it there eventually? Are you able to choose your own narrator and, if so, please will you keep the same one?

In a sea of grimdark fantasy, it has been said that Jen Williams is bringing back fun and adventure to fantasy. How does she feel about that?

I really enjoyed Wydrin, but I identified a lot more with Sebastian, both in life and personality: who do you think is more like you?

As an avid player, how has that part of her life informed her writing? And how does she feel about pc / console games as a storytelling medium?

Who creates the wonderful, but uncredited cover art for the trilogy?

Will there be more short stories featuring Wydrin,Sebastion and Frith after the trilogy is complete?

Jen (@sennydreadful), if Marc doesn't select all these questions for his big interview, you still have to come here and reply to the missing ones ;)

I just tell you this: "yay, Rey!" ;D

Are you able and/or willing to talk about the new series you are working on?

@sennydreadful do you have any pertinent questions for Marc to ask Jen? Or would that be construed as leading the interview?  :)
