  1. Taylor,

    Hi! Here are some more tips and advice from authors I’ve interviewed for the past three years on conference calls sponsored by NYT Bestselling Fantasy and Science Fiction author David Farland called Farland’s Authors Advisory. There are more than the call I’m posting, but they have a ton of amazing advice and as soon as more are scheduled, you can call in and ask questions of the authors yourself if you like. The call I posted was with World Fantasy Award winning author of “On Stranger Tides” (basis for the Disney movie of the same name) Tim Powers.
